And some of my readers wonder why I'm so disgusted with the Republican party? Since the fall of Nixon, the GOP has pandered to the Evangelical base, legitimizing these ridiculous viewpoints and granting them increasing political power. This is how the American Century truly ends, not in terrorist attack or trade wars, but sheer electoral opportunism crossed over with cynical anti-science perspectives. Couple that with the overwhelming hypocrisy of the continual claim to the sole mantle of good and ethical government, and it's a wonder I can see straight.
It must be so much easier than thinking. I'd pity those among my fellow Americans who believe this arrant nonsense if they weren't busily destroying my country.
