Republicanism Shown To Be Genetic in Origin

"The discovery that affiliation with the Republican Party is genetically determined is causing uproar among traditionalists who believe it is a chosen lifestyle.

The study by scientists in the current issue of the journal NURTURE,
has sent shock waves through the medical, political, and golfing communities. But the finding has been greeted with relief by Parents and Friends of Republicans (PFREP), who sometimes blame themselves for the political views of otherwise lovable children, family, and unindicted co-conspirators."

I always thought that Republicanism was based on sever e brain trauma! Seriously, having grown up in the south, I believe that wrong-wingers are the result of sexism and clinging to patriarchy...

Perhaps so-called Republicanism was at one time based on an actual philosophy or set of principles(?).

Current Bush-led right-wing "republicanism" is much more about a personality of narcissism obsession, and ultimately, pathology.

There's at least a little bit of psycho in a large proportion of our right-wing republicans.

Rove&Co, and decades of virulent hate-talk radio have cultivated this psycho quality in millions of our fellow Americans.

There most likely is a personality component to modern republicanism.
But there's no doubt about it--That component is being
expertly, almost lovingly, nurtured by pundits, media and propaganda masters of the Right.

And the cure is not currently on the horizon.

We have now entered into what Hunter Thompson called, "The Big Darkness".

And all thanks to right wing republicanism.

'In a hurried, indistinct voice he began to assure me he had not dared to take these - say, symbols - down. He was not afraid of the natives; they would not stir till Mr. Kurtz gave the word. His ascendancy was extraordinary. The camps of these people surrounded the place, and the chiefs came every day to see him. They would crawl... "I don't want to know anything of the ceremonies used when approaching Mr. Kurtz," I shouted. Curious, this feeling that came over me that such details would be more intolerable than those heads drying on the stakes under Mr. Kurtz's windows. After all, that was only a savage sight, while I seemed at one bound to have been transported into some lightless region of subtle horrors, where pure, uncomplicated savagery was a positive relief, being something that had the right to exist - obviously - in the sunshine.'
- From "Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad.
Which, according to Hunter S. Thomson's wife, was the last book that he read...
Kurtz = Bush
