What are Republicans doing to make the World A Better Place?

Question by It’s Your World, Change It: What are Republicans doing to make the World A Better Place?
Okay, so we’ve all heard some of the Republicans here and elsewhere say that if you’re a liberal and want to protect the environment, you’re an idiot, global warming is a myth, welfare is evil(unless it’s Corporate Welfare, then it’s a godsend to help keep prices down for Americans,but why are we helping America’s most fortunate and not our LEAST fortunate?) abortion should be illegal,but you can’t give condoms to teens or educate them properly about sex and std’s, etc.,social security should be privatized,our schools should be replaced with vouchers and/or privatized.But if turning over all businesses, industries,etc., to government is “communism” or “socialism”,why is it okay to turn over everything to Corporations?We can’t give economic aid, food or clean water to foreign countries to help prevent terrorism.Why is it the ONLY thing worth protecting to them are their investments and their money? What Are REPUBLICANS Doing To Make AMERICA and the WORLD Better? ? ?

    Alright first off, dont label all Republicans as the same thing. The real term your looking for is Neo-Conservatists. There the real problem.
    There is one Unique Republican who is Running for president, by the name of Ron Paul, I suggest you search for him on youtube and google. he is against Iraq war and supports liberty, freedom and peace. he is against income tax.

    Since Bush has been in office:
    We now have an Office of Homeland Security.
    Airports are safer – New screening machines, dogs, armed security
    Airliners are safer – Pilot doors, armed guards, better training
    We have a color coded Alert system that was non-existent before Bush
    Bush has lowered all our taxes
    Federal funds are now given to each state for fighting terrorism
    The military was in shambles from neglect due to the Clinton Admin. Now we have proper machines, artillery, helicopters & airplanes, training, supplies, etc. so we can defend our country.
    New York rebounded from the biggest disaster ever with Bush’s help.
    Bush extended unemployment insurance and gave tax incentives so New Yorkers could get a job again.
    Bush has set up villages in other countries that house and feed the poor to prevent the terrorists from enticing them into the jihad movement.
    Bush has rid the Taliban and their drug operations in Afganistan.
    Bush has given the Afganistan people freedom from oppression, (beheadings, genocide, etc).
    Bush has started schools for children in Afganistan as well as the women, who previously were not allowed to be educated.
    Massive tax cuts that led to the best home buying period in the nation’s history. (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

His policies have prevented another terrorist attack and dozens have be foiled (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

Bush has tripled the amount of money heading to Africa for AIDS relief. (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

India is no longer making threatening comments to US Naval Attaches. (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

He stopped the Democrat push in Congress for reinstating the draft. (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

Exposed the left in this country as the vicious haters of anyone who doesn’t agree with them. I point to the Hitler, fascist, Nazi, war mongerer, murderer, mass murderer, terrorist, anti-Christ ramblings. (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

He stood up to Islamic terrorism when too many people in this world wanted to be like France. (yes I know, Dems don’t like to talk about that.)

    Increased mililary pay
    Prescription drug help for medicare users

    ended a recession
low unemployment rate
growing economy
declining deficit

    He has declared Iran’s army, terrorists.
And as of recent, he has cemented relations with Canada and Mexico.

    They’re deciding they’re NOT going to run in the next Election- in droves… And after 7 years of Bush- the World is thanking them for it. 🙂

  5. kylekuypers says:

    Sean Hannity has concerts to aid the children of fallen soldiers.
    Bill O’reilly has forced states to pass Jessica’s Law.
    All his proceeds and profits from his website go to charity.

    Now you name any liberals that have done something like this. There is none. Libs don’t do anything but make this country worse then it already is.

  6. cantcu says:

    Nothing! They are making it a more dangerous place, and killing people to boot!

    That’s interesting. it was Hillary Clinton who intervened when wounded soldiers being discharged from Walter Reed were presented a bill for their sacrifice. She intervened when the Army was trying to charge soldiers $ 800.00 for their body armor that was missing. It was missing because it had to be cut off of them in Iraq when they were wounded!

    Bush cuts the VA Hospitals and gives tax cuts to those making averaging $ 800,030 to 26.5 million a year!

    Tulsa World

    Not too long ago, my wife and I attended a TV football
    party in south Tulsa. With a lopsided score, the
    conversation turned to a livelier subject — politics. The
    crowd was, of course, top-heavy with Republicans. With each
    point expressed their faces became more flushed, eyes
    bulging a little more and veins popping in their foreheads
    as they railed against the liberal programs.

    Finally a lone, liberal voice asked: “Will you people
    name me one bill your party ever passed to help the working
    man of this country?” The question created much din and
    clamor, and someone sputtered, “Well, what have the
    Democrats done?”

    The liberal responded with a few programs and was
    interrupted by howling and disdain. He noted that he had
    not promised they would like the programs and he asked to
    complete his statement — a difficult task to ask of
    Republicans.

    He spoke of Social Security; Medicare-Medicaid; Peace
    Corps; unemployment insurance; welfare (for the poor and
    corporate); civil rights; student grant and loan programs;
    safety laws (OSHA); environmental laws; prevailing wage
    laws; right to collective bargaining (which brought about
    paid medical insurance, paid vacations, pensions, etc.);
    workers’ compensation; Marshall Plan; flood-disaster
    insurance; School Lunch Program; women’s rights.

    He spoke of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which
    established a minimum wage, instituted child labor laws,
    and set up time-and-a-half pay for over a 40-hour week.

    He mentioned FHA-HUD with its public housing, urban
    renewal and 44 million residential homes (before WWII
    almost 70 percent of our nation were renters; by the 1970s
    this had been reversed). And farm-conservation
    subsidies — USDA programs, Farmers Home Administration (the
    bankers didn’t want to make rural loans), small
    flood-control lakes (more than 3,000 in Oklahoma alone),
    rural water districts, rural electricity (REA).

    The GI Bill was passed, which the Republicans at the
    time bitterly opposed. They were salivating over millions
    of returning veterans to hire as cheap labor. More than 8
    million have used college benefits, creating millions of
    entrepreneurs; most of us had never dreamed of college. For
    the unemployed GI, there was $ 20 a week for 52 weeks to
    help get started (a lot of money in those days). The
    Veterans Administration provided more than 2 million home
    loans.

    For the bankers at the football party, it was pointed
    out that the liberals saved their industry with the
    creation of FDIC and FSLIC, insuring their deposits, and
    saved Wall Street with the establishment of the Securities
    Exchange Commission.

    The oil men came on bended knees to FDR at a time when
    East Texas oil was 4 cents a barrel and begged him to save
    their industry. He did; prorationing overturned the rule of
    capture and the days of flush production were over.
    Prorating has served this great industry (and nation)
    well.

    And the list went on and on, but of course this group
    didn’t let him get halfway through. He noted they were
    weary, inattentive, so again he challenged them to offer up
    any Republican legislation examples.

    “I’m sure your party has authored one or two comparable
    bills from time to time, but I can’t think of any, and
    apparently you can’t either. What it boils down to is this:
    the liberals dragged you into the 20th century scratching
    and screaming with your heels in the mud, fighting anything
    that’s progressive, everything that’s made this country
    great. You Republicans have never understood that the
    spending power of blue-collar workers, obtained through
    Democrats and unions, is what really made this country
    great. You really believe “The Good Life” was obtained from
    your own endeavors. You cloak your greed in religion and
    patriotism, railing against any form of tax, never
    comprehending that these programs have benefited all of us
    and our country.”

    No Republicans!

    Appears to be nothing

  9. editor@bcdisabilities.com says:

    Nothing! Nothing at ALL! Quite the reverse! Consider:

    …For a short parlor game, challenge your friends to name a constitutional right that Bush has not sought to undermine. After the right to bear arms and the guarantee against the quartering of soldiers, the game will be over. Those who prefer a longer game can reverse the exercise, but be prepared for an extended and dispiriting evening.

    …The Fifth Amendment right to due process, meanwhile, has fallen victim to assertions that “enemy combatants” can be held indefinitely without trial, that suspicious organizations can have their assets frozen without notice or hearings, and that military tribunals can sentence defendants to death on the basis of hearsay and coerced testimony. For the administration, secrecy trumps all legal process; it has claimed that lawsuits challenging unconstitutional renditions to torture and warrantless wiretapping cannot even be adjudicated because the government’s allegedly unconstitutional conduct is itself a secret, even when the facts in question have already been emblazoned across the pages of the country’s newspapers.

    …The first and most important step toward restoration of constitutional principle, then, will be the next election. If the public does not demand fidelity to our founding principles, our representatives will not do so on their own.

    The remaining steps are straightforward. The next administration could start by proclaiming – loudly – that in wartime, as in peacetime, the American system of government includes tree branches, and the president’s first job is to take care that the law is faithfully executed. Second, Guantanamo must be shut down and the prisoners there brought within our borders. When Defense Secretary Robert Graves suggested just that, the administration’s lawyers objected that they would lose their argument that because the detainees are held offshore, they are unprotected by the Constitution. But the argument that Guantanamo is a “law-free zone” is precisely why that island has become a world symbol for U.S. arrogance and lawlessness – a “reverse Statue of Liberty,” as some have called it. ((From 1. The Constitution by David Cole, a professor at Georgetown University Law Center, at pgs. 44-45)

    Yup and get this in case you thought Republican security policies were making you any safer:

    A woman on crutches hobbles through the portal and hands me her boarding pass, which bears the dreaded code. “Ma’am,” I stammer, “you’ve been selected for, uh…additional screening.” Behind her wait her four children toting bulging backpacks, each with a boarding pass that indicates they too will need to be inspected.

    …I wasn’t taught why certain passengers are chosen for additional screening, but I know from my years covering aviation security as a reporter that some are picked at random and others are selected because of certain red flags. Chances are that whatever computer reviewed this family’s data when they checked in saw only a group of five people traveling together on a one-way, last-minute booking. In other words, the M.O. of a terrorist cell on 9/11. I learn the real story when the woman angrily relates that her mother has just died and they are flying to the funeral. They didn’t book a return flight because they weren’t sure how long they would be staying.

    I am struck by the fact that at this major urban airport, five years after the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, we are still relying on the same rudimentary tools that have been used for decades to detect who is a true threat: physical pat-downs and basic X-ray technology along with the out-of-date passenger pre-screening that continues to bedevil people such as the woman before me.

    I find it so funny that just a few lines from a Republican and its all about redirect. Look at the other guy tactic, please just answer the question and stop trying to label the other guy as a bad guy.

    1+1=2. Please Republicans, keep is simple and stay on track.

  13. Chainsaw says:

    Not all Republicans in Congress are doing anything useful. The rank and file, however, are.

    There is a difference between protecting the environment (which I support) and doing so at the destruction of our economy (what liberals are doing).

    There is a lot of evidence that global warming exists. The issue is mainly whether humans can impact that change, which I do not believe.

    Most Republicans are not for big corporations. Small business is what makes us great, not big business. Most Republicans cannot stand the greed of the Enron’s of the world.

    You cannot give corporate welfare to companies when you give them back some of the money that they have taken from them. I challenge you to name 1 American corporation that gets more in tax money than it pays out.

    I am pro-life, but do not advocate abortion being completely illegal. It should not be allowed for people who have sex and will not raise a child. Rape, incest, and mother’s physical health are a different matter.

    On sex ed, it is not the government’s job to be parents. If you allow this, where does it stop? I do not need the government telling me how to raise my kids. The job of the government is to protect us from foreign and domestic threats, which it does not do.

    Social security should be privatized for those WHO CHOOSE TO have it that way. I can invest my money better than the government.

    Government run schools suck. They are controlled by teacher’s unions that lack accountability. Schools spend more time teaching Shakespeare than how to balance a check book.

    There is a third option besides everything owned by corporations: what we have today. 90% of businesses are small businesses, not big corporations. I prefer it that way.

    Protecting my money is worth time because without the ability to own it, there is no freedom.

    To answer the first question, I have shown a completely different perspective to your misrepresentation of Republicans. I have also shown that the best solutions come when government gets out of matters and leaves it to private enterprise and individuals.

  16. Sky says:

    Nothing.

    End of story.

    You pretty much hit the nail on the head on what the Republicans want and what they hate to see instituted for the good of America and the world–hence their backward policy-making decisions.

  17. adensaa says:

    I’ve said it hundred times and I’ll say it again. Republicans only care about themselves while claiming they represent everyone. It’s always “ME ME ME!!!”. Every program they oppose is because of their personal beliefs, whether or not these issues affect them at all. Like gay marriage for example. No victims associated with gay marriage, yet Reps/Cons fight against it. Talk about a giant waste of time. The Republican party has done a lot of damage to it’s reputation by opposing a civil rights issue.

    They will support a trillion dollar war that has only hurt the US. We have not benefited from this war. Yet, they will oppose social programs that will directly benefit our own citizens. Their reason, money…..yet anyone who’s lived in a country with universal healthcare will say that it’s worth the money and it does work. These same Republicans will claim only drug addicts use these programs while they are on welfare collecting $ .

    To answer your question: Republicans whether they realize it are not are only hurting the world. Only the top 1% is benefiting from their actions. The other 99% are brain washed into believing they’re helping themselves. Thankfully, they’re falling like flies.
