The Twisted Minds of Republicans

America is supposed to be the most powerful country on Earth. They have the strongest minds in science, the best research facilities, top universities, and the dumbest of politicians. Looking at the nonsense uttered by republicans I can't help but wonder how on earth these douchebags got their votes.

I couldn't care less about them initially. They're downright arrogant, callous, stubborn, ridiculous, and all-other-derogatory-terms-you-can-imagine. But the final straw came last night when I read about the bigoted comment by Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, when asked whether abortion should be allowed in cases of rape or incest:

"I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."

God's intention? I wonder how would he maintain his stance when one of his daughters or female relatives fell victim to rape. As expected, his remark sparked an uproar from both the Democrats and the public. Even Mitt Romney distanced himself and disavowed the statement. And I'm sure Paul Ryan is feeling sorry for himself now.
The thing is, this moron is not the only republican to commit such atrocity in recent history.

Two months ago, Todd Akin made headlines when he said that victims of legitimate rape rarely experience pregnancy from rape.
Legitimate rape? What do you mean by legitimate rape?
For your information, sir, rape IS rape.
And so I agree with Obama. And for the record, a 2003 article published in the journal Human Nature estimated that rapes are twice as likely to result in pregnancies as consensual sex.

As a scientist I believe in raw data and scientific method, not some random assumptions from politicians. Furthermore, there's no denying that politicians lie a lot.

Representative Paul Broun, who sits on the US Congress Science Committee, said in September at a church that

All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that are lies straight from the pit of Hell. And it’s lies to try to keep me and all the folks who were taught that from understanding that they need a savior. You see, there are a lot of scientific data that I’ve found out as a scientist that actually show that this is really a young Earth. I don’t believe that the Earth’s but about 9,000 years old. I believe it was created in six days as we know them. That’s what the Bible says.

May I remind you that this fella sits on the science committee, together with Akin (the rape-victims-can-shut-down-pregnancy fella). 9,000 years old, I mean, seriously dude? Six days, that's even more ridiculous. And you're a scientist, and at the same time believing in the Bible LITERALLY? And evolution and the Big Bang Theory are lies straight from the pit of Hell?

Okay, let's put it this way. If you believe that nuclear radiation is harmful (which is why you guys go onto the streets to protest), you should believe in some studies related to nuclear decay and the concept of half-life. If you believe in the concept of half-life, you should believe the mathematics because mathematics doesn't lie (humans do). And if you believe in the mathematics of half-life, you should believe that carbon dating suggest that dinosaurs are older than 9,000 years old, and other dating system suggest that the Earth is around 4.5 billions years old.

The most disheartening thing about all these is that there are still people who continually vote these idiots to office. They possess mentality so aberrant and primitive whatever they say could literally be "lies straight from the pit of hell".
Humanity will be heading down the drain if they win the coming election.

    i'd have no idea how to respond/do if i were put in the same situation. i'd guess i'd nvr know until it happens...
    think about it this way, if u really had a baby through rape, that baby already has a soul rite? would u stil kill it?
    (of cos on the bright side, u are sending it straight to heaven)
    truthfully, i dont know the answer...but until the time comes to make the decision, i'd nvr know...
