any more "Signs of Psychosis From GOP" are about as necessary as any more signs of Hitler+the NSDAP's in$anity+ruthlessness would have been, in, say... (late) 1944

It's scary for the white male who used to have it all, being a minority is harder for them because they won't accept it and think they can still push their weight around
SADLY MISTAKEN EGOCENTRIC RACISTS

“I think the most important thing your listeners can do is simply pray, because we need a great deal of prayer,” he said. “Because marriage is really, really being undermined by a concerted effort. And it’s causing significant harm.”

If only these bigoted fools would restrict themselves to prayer, and then just wait and see how that works out for them, I'd be, well, not okay with it, but sleeping soundly knowing that all they had or ever would, was racist bigoted words. Because God, as pointed out, doesn't actually get involved with such things, no matter what Ted thinks. We have some of the most despicably ugly souls ever to inhabit this planet frothing at the mouth all over the place in these times. They are a minority, yes, but they are so loud and so annoying. Free speech is always a good thing, but so is common sense and these fools have none. Never will either.

This is merely another example of the madman theory of politics. The basic idea was to make the rest of the population think you are absolutely bonkers, so that they will always let you get your way. So with Ted Cruz showing that he out of touch with reality it really is time that the men in white coats come to take him away Ha-Haaa! To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and he'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming to take him away, ha-haaa!!!!! To the happy home, with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they'recoming to take him away, ha-haa!!!

Oh, I absolutely agree they are psychotic! Mental illness is a terrible thing....often well-hidden, but always very dangerous. Yet, it's hard to tell where hatemongering leaves off and psychosis begins. I see they're avoiding the elephant in the middle of the room still.....where ARE the jobs?

The madhatters can no longer keep their madness concealed under their hats. Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Arizona's anti-LGBT bill, their pro-misogyny bills, profits before people bills, and not wanting to pay for the bills they rang up, like for the Iraq War. They would be entertaining if not so dangerous.

Conservatism is a threat to democracy for the way it "seeks to create a permanent aristocracy"....
For republicans, the means justifies the end....and we all have heard this before and continue to find it's true if the truth is what one seeks.
GOOD EXAMPLE-----The Paul Ryan's and Eric Cantors will come out and say publically that they want to SAVE social security and what it truly means.....they want to make CUTS...but .never increase the CAPS. This will ultimately weaken S S and then they will say it's useless.....and hand it over to Wall Street. Wall Street is drooling over the billions of dollars SS pays out an they want a piece of this action.

The conservatives are absolute nuts, but unfortunately, they have tons of money behind them; not people, but money. This is what happens when the right-wing SCOTUS puts no limits on political bribery. Excellent article.

The frightening thing about these subhuman morons is that they are in positions of power. We must work to get them voted out of office, and I think we need to fight for some sort of testing for potential candidates in order to weed out the extremists and prevent them from ever running for office much less get elected. They represent a serious threat to the democracy. Thank you for the sharing the article.

'Cruz said that gay marriage threatened liberty '


No matter how many times I ask 'how?' I never get an answer. Because there isn't one.

We are witnessing fox dumbing down some people, coming to a head.
noun ( pl. psychoses |-ˌsēz| )
a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.

Yup! That's the right word! An effect of mass brain washing.

We can only hope at this time in history that the citizenry haven't become so stupid listening to these halfwits and their echo-chamber pals over at Faux that they'll regain control of government. We're still struggling to clean up the disaster from their last reign of criminality if that's even possible to do anymore.....

Thanks Cal. If there are only six we all know it was a slow week for the Republican politician and a slower week for those that listen to their insane ranting or Faux Noise Alerts.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Vote ALL republicans and tea baggers out of office in every state at EVERY opportunity.
