So the 2010 elections were supposed to be all about jobs and the economy .. but after those elections what kind of legislation do we actually get? Abortions, gay marriage, English as an official language, banning Sharia Law, stripping union rights .. all this stuff is not about jobs and the economy, but it is about capitalizing on how afraid people are in a bad economy. It’s about telling Americans that other Americans are the enemy. It’s about splitting people up. It makes political sense, but it’s REALLY bad for the country.

Republicans don’t care if it’s bad for the country, as long as it makes political sense.(via reagan-was-a-horrible-president)
