The Republican Party Platform includes a plank that denies workers in the Marianas Islands a minimum wage. Why should the Republican Party care so much about denying workers a minimum wage in this tiny Pacific territory? The answer, as documented by Bill Moyers, will leave you in disgust.

."My life is my message." The wise words of Mahatma Gandhi which obviously, or at least obviously to me, Ralph Reed needs to learn, if that is even possible.

Ralph Reed claims to be a Christian, yet he sees no problem in deceiving others. He sees no problem abusing others. He sees no problem using others. And for what? His faith? NO! His greed! GREED!!!!! This is a man, like many other Republican/Teabaggers, that must be denounced like the faithless parasites they are!

Organized Christian Churches have historically been brutal to other cultures in their forced conversions. Just ask any Native American that was sent to a Catholic/Jesuit boarding school and you will be told of the assaults of all kinds that took place at the hands (and sometimes worse) of the priests and nuns as those "good Christians" sought to beat the Indian out of their young charges.

It has always been about keeping natives in their place, in servitude to their "Christian" masters..The good southern "Christians" were okay with enslaving an entire race. After all, the old testament approved of slavery. Why should we expect them to be any different today

Reading this makes me so angry at the POS these people are. I am further astounded at the almost non-existent level of intelligence the people who believe them have. Do they truly think because one declares themselves to be a Christian that they MUST then be a good person? Proves to me just how gullible these bible thumpers are and will go to any extreme to vote against their own best interest.

Thanks TomCat for another great post. Another rotten plank in the platform that they have to sun on. Well I'm sure it will collapse as they head for the finish line. Read and noted.

The GOP would ultimately like to eliminate all minimum wage laws and all unions.

Those Vulture Capitalists make me want to vomit - we all know their destination in the next life in the fullness of time (and it ain't going to be nice!) - but we have to try and limit the damage they do in this one! As for their sheeple - well, there's none so blind as those that will not see.....

Thanks all. Please bear in mind that there really are authentic Christians, who have nothing in common with Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christians.

From the article: "As head of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Reed boasts hes building a political dynamo of five million members with a massive database, an annual budget of $100 million and full-time lobbyists in all 50 state capitals, a colossal effort aimed at putting in place a right-wing social agenda and identifying and establishing contact with what it estimates as 27 million conservative voters in America."

Does that mean that 27 million conservative voters in America can be referred to as "pimps" and will be guilty of "abuse" for their role in putting women and children back in sweat shops? And religion is used to justify this, while Reed and his corrupt friends are getting rich?

I wish I could say I was surprised, but I've learned that some people worship at the altar of the almighty dollar and use and abuse their fellow human beings in every way imaginable --and justify their actions by hiding behind religion. If someone threw Reed into a cesspool, the cesspool would spit him out in disgust!

Sue, as much as I hate to defend pseudo-Christians, they were duped, and therefore guilty of mo more than being fools.
