hypocrisy is found in most. Stop judge me. Wait. If I am not hating on hypocrites because I am one, does that make me not a hypocrite? And if I am not a hypocrite then I am embracing something I am not. And then that makes me a hypocrite. And then I am no longer a hypocrite because I am hypocrite.
now let's take a look a Republican hypocrisy.
1. Republican governor Matt Bevin refused to take free government money to expand Medicare for his struggling citizens despite insurance being too expensive because that would not be fiscally responsible. but when his factory burned down from a lightning strike (it was uninsured cause, as he put it, insurance was too expensive) he asked for and accepted government money to help cover his losses. Bravo!
2. Republican governor (and trump's presidential chief of staff) Chris Christie is refusing to raise one of the nation's lowest gas taxes in order to reinvigorate the states empty infrastructure fund, but when it comes to his defense he billed his taxpayers with a staggeringly expensive private lawyer. doesn't the government extend contracts to the lowest bidder usually? you want top notch defense, pay for it yourself.
these "fiscally responsible" Republicans make Democrats look like cheapskates when it comes to their own interests, but the people can tough it out right?
and then there is you (dalton, and I'm sure much of the Republican masses) who are willing to betray core conservative principles such as the sanctity of private property and fiscal responsibility in defense of your candidate's greed (eminent domain) and stupidity (let's just print money and/or default on our debt).
I hope we can continue this discussion cause when it comes to hypocrisy, Republicans are the gold f***ing standard. the only ones who have you beat are the people's dictatorships of the 3rd world. congratulations.
you pointed out 2 supposed hypocrisies.
1. the DNC wall: convention security is handled by a mixture of secret service and local police. it can't be a democratic hypocrisy if the Democrats had little to no say in the process.
2. "They want gun free zones in schools, but their SS agents bring them in all the time to protect the Democrats." -Dalton
holy shit, this is the dumbest thing I've heard in a long time. secret service are trained security agents. of course they should have guns. that's like saying we should take guns away from police and soldiers. you want guns in schools? put professionally trained police officers in schools, not untrained private citizens. there is no hypocrisy here, only blatant stupidity.
i was agreeing with you....
Didn't I say Republicans can be hypocritical too? I just that I notice it more on the Demorcrat side.
No matter the gun laws, they'll never allow thousands of people to carry firearms around big political figures. Like you said, that'd make it really easy to kill Trump.
Lol. Republicans have some too, like no guns in the conventions. however if they did that somebody could pick off trump easier
I'd say it's fairly common on both sides, though I dobnotice it more with Democrats, but that aldo might be my Republican bias talking. Politics in general is rampant with hypocrisy.
Democrats do not advocate walls around our nation, but they build one outside their convention and they are making one higher around the white house.
They want gun free zones in schools, but their SS agents bring them in all the time to protect the Democrats. When the top are allowed to do stuff the bottom can't, that is the very definition of elitism.
Everyone usually has a fence around their house. Why? To keep people they do not want out.
If you want a roomate you interview them and see if they are a nice guy. You don't just leave the door open and see who your new roomate is when you come home!
If people are keep breaking into your house and keep trying to live with you, you do not let in three people who you do not know, no matter how big your house is and say f*** it "these people just want a better life"
You amp up your security system and take control. People should start treating their country like they do their house because they have two things in commom, you pay for it and you live in it.
