Inclusion? That is now the party platform for Nevada Republicans? What does that mean?
According to less than 50% of the 520 Nevada Republican Party delegates at their annual convention on April 19, it means…
- IF…you believe that killing a baby via abortion is wrong? You are, by definition of their platform, a Republican…and…
- IF…you believe that dismembering a baby before birth is just fine? You, too, are by definition of their platform, a Republican.
Life – killing it – protecting it – according to Nevada Republicans – it’s all the same to them.
This is the kinder and gentler America we have all been waiting for, right? We want to make certain everyone has those nice cuddly feelings of being included – at least those who are already born. If you are in the womb, you’re on your own.
The state’s GOP chairman Michael McDonald said dropping opposition to abortion and the redefinition of marriage is ‘where the party is going.’ He told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he thought the party platform was “about inclusion, not exclusion.”
Marriage? Why bother defining it any longer. Inclusion is “in.” Everybody…let’s just consider you married, no matter to whom. Same sex, three people, groups of ten…you’re all married…just sign the marriage license. Best of all, you’re in Nevada. Just drive through your friendly Las Vegas Chapel of Marriage and grab your license on the way out with your order of 5 glasses of champagne.
One wonders how America ever got to this point.
We can’t make decisions in America any longer if someone feels offended. It’s all up for grabs – life, abortion, marriage. Is this the same nation that abolished slavery at the cost of a four-year war and over 600,000 dead soldiers?
Rational arguments for public policy are no longer needed. Just decide how you feel about it. And how everyone else feels about it. Then if you are going to hurt someone’s feelings, make it legal.
Include everyone! In everything! We’ll all feel better for it. Really!
Feelings have consequences. One may feel it is entirely justifiable to own a slave. There is actually one person in the world who felt it was permissible to marry a dolphin – and she did. There is a Princeton Professor who feels it is best if we decide if a baby is “wanted” after we’ve gotten to know the baby for a couple of weeks…and then “end its life”…if we feel like it.
If every person in America feels like smoking marijuana, perhaps one day we will all be legallyRocky Mountain high. You think this might do damage to our brains? Who cares? We don’t need them anymore. We’re just not that into thinking. We are a nation of feelers.
As this rate, who needs political parties?
Let’s just collapse everyone into the “Feel Good” party. Look at the money we will save on political campaigns and elections. Hey…good news, too. We can use that money to pay down the national debt…if we feel like it.
