Tuli Can't Stop Talking

These are just my thoughts on contemporary issues and an attempt to open up a dialogue.

What is a Real Republican?

Andros over at Liberal Citizen has a pretty good list of what it takes to be a Republican these days. It is a pretty comprehensive list.

I would add that to be a Real Republican these days you must believe that the Constitution is a piece of parchment paper and should not exactly be deferred to. You must also believe that Torture is not only acceptable, but desirable. You must believe that International Treaties are merely quaint. And, that anyone who disagrees with Dear Leader is with the terrorists.

Not to mention the necessary belief that anyone who ousted a CIA NOC and an entire network of people tracking weapons of mass destruction proliferation was doing their patriotic duty and that is why they had to lie about it.

I am sure that there are other examples of the dissonance, and of necessary belief, between being an actual U. S. Citizen, and caring about democracy, and being a Republican these days, but the mind boggles.
