A survey of self-identified Republicans conducted and published recently by Daily Kos yielded some interesting results, most of which tell us what we already know: that for the most part that the words “Republican” and “reality” do not belong in the same sentence.
Go look at it and have a good scratch-your-head experience (http://www.dailykos.com/statepoll/2010/1/31/US/437).
Here I want to look at the responses to two of the questions. 76% of respondents answered “yes” to the question: do you consider abortion to be murder. 8% answered “no” and 16% were “not sure.”
To the question, “Do you support the death penalty?” a whopping 91% said “yes” while 4% said no and 5% were “not sure.”
From these figures I draw two interesting conclusions. The vast majority of Republicans believe it is OK in some circumstances to kill human beings but never to kill a foetus. I also have a strong feeling that, had there been a question about the need to kill masses of human beings in war; it would have yielded enthusiastic positive responses. With all this concern about the unborn, who if they know wat it good for men are loyal Republicans, one wonders whether Republicans might be in favor of lowering the voting age to foetus.
Secondly, it follows logically from these responses that Republicans in general actually believe that since abortion is murder (which generally justifies the death penalty) that the consequence of having or performing a therapeutic abortion should be the imposition of the capital punishment.
So, the next time you have the pleasure of speaking with one of these Jesus loving turn-the-other-cheek Christian Republicans (67% believe that the only way an individual can go to heaven in through Jesus Christ), ask them whether they prefer the electric chair, hanging, or a firing squad for those women who have and the doctors who perform abortions.
