This shouldn’t be hard for working people to figure out, but it apparently is when you consider that the Rust Belt went to Trump.   The funny part came when they lost their jobs anyway-and I still laugh at that whenever it enters my mind.

While it makes sense for a rich man to vote Republican (lower taxes) no working man with a double-digit IQ should do it.  Forget those of us with triple-digit IQ’s, because we know better.  Do I feel any sympathy when disaster strikes a red state?  Why would I, especially when much of the fracking and environmental pollution happens over there?
It’s even more humorous when these fools vote Republican for the sake of their “moral values”.  These are the same group of hypocrites who have been known to condemn rape victims, so I feel no sympathy for those who allow their “moral values” determine for whom they vote.  After all, is it moral for the Republicans in Congress to hack away at civil rights for the disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act (signed by a Republican)?

Of course, these people who vote Republican will deny it.

“Why would anyone do such a thing?  That’s not what Christ taught!”
“But, they’re doing it.”
“I don’t believe you!  You’re lying!  You’re just say that because you’re a Godless liberal!”
“Just remember all of this when you go to the polls: religiosity won’t save your fucking ass.  Only Christ knows whether you’re bullshitting or not-and if you are…..nice knowing you.”

“You’re just saying that because you hate America!

By the way, that’s always their out.

“Fine, believe whatever you want.  I don’t care.  Just remember that God watches you in that voting booth.”
“And now you’re being blasphemous!”
“Remember Matthew 25:42-46 when He sends you down below.  See ya.”

It is interesting to note that these same voters who oppose

a rape victim’s right to choose also oppose free surgeries for children.  I mean, wouldn’t that be the definition of being pro-life?  Well,

 

 1 John 3:17 
Context

17But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? 18Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.”

Oops.

Lastly, some who go to church use charitable giving to cut their tax bill.  However, charity should not be done as a tax write-off (Why did Sam Kinison just popped into my head right now?

“I never said build an old folks’ home and use it as a tax write-off!”

.  God is too smart for that:

“Proverbs 23:6-8

Saying 9

6 Do not eat the food of a begrudging host, do not crave his delicacies; 
7 for he is the kind of person who is always thinking about the cost.“Eat and drink,” he says to you, but his heart is not with you. 
8 You will vomit up the little you have eaten and will have wasted your compliments.

Matthew 6:2: “So when you give to the needy,do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they   have received their reward in full.

Then again, you know that the rich often lie about how much the give-and it’s all just for show.

Just remember all of this when you go to the polls: religiosity won’t save your fucking ass.  Only Christ knows whether you’re bullshitting or not-and if you are…..nice knowing you.
