How many times have you been in a conversation with a conservative on Twitter, Facebook, face-to-face, on the phone, or just standing in line somewhere, and you blank on an easy to understand, informative comeback? Need a handy dandy guide that sums it all up beautifully? Why, here’s one now!
Here are a few excerpts from a substantive post that includes gun rights, marriage equality, “Christian values,” fiscal responsibility, “small” government, abortion, the debt ceiling, spending, and tax cuts. Thank you, Forward Progressives:
Marriage is a Sacred Bond Before God: [...]
[I]f you feel your religion should control all others, and all Americans, you then support a theocracy and apparently oppose the United States and our Constitutionally protected freedoms. [...]
I Want Big Intrusive Government–That Never Does Anything Good–Out of My Life!
Did you drive today? Did you take your children to public school? Did you enjoy a safe commute as you traveled thanks to traffic signals and signs? Did you whisk through your city or state on an Interstate Highway? Did you enjoy running water and plumbing that properly, and safely, disposes of waste? Did you get a college degree at a public university because it was much cheaper than a private one?
Hey genius, that’s all government.
Republicans: The Party for Christian Values: [...]
If you want to say you’re the party of “Christian values” and you worship Jesus Christ…
Start by helping the sick, the poor, the needy—not opposing programs that do. [...]
Republicans are the Party of Small Government
Big government regulations, they’re un-American! They’re unconstitutional and ruining your way of life!
Unless that big government regulates:
What language to speak
Religion to follow
When life is created
Who can marry
Who can serve in the military
Invasive health procedures on women
That we have prayer in school
Mosques aren’t built in certain locations
Corporations are people
The Patriot Act
Unions don’t have rights
When alcohol can be sold
The requirement of an ID to vote
Those were but a few of the responses that Forward Progressives provided. Please follow the link for more.
