10 Indisputable Facts Republicans Really Won’t Like Seeing

facepalm-perryThe last few weeks the news has been pretty much awful. There have been days where I just stare at my television or computer screen thinking to myself, “What the hell is wrong with people?”

Now I know news is typically negative (unfortunately fear and negativity sell better), but lately it just seems like the whole world has gone mad.

That being said, I thought I’d have a little fun. And for someone who enjoys politics, “trolling” Republicans can provide a good bit of entertainment every once in a while.

So I thought, in the spirit of trying to have a little fun (and to be informative), here are ten facts Republicans can’t dispute.

Here we go:

1) Right now there are millions of Republicans benefitting from the Affordable Care Act – who still want it repealed.

2) Conservative icon and legend Ronald Reagan tripled our national debt during his eight years in the White House. 

3) George W. Bush was the first president to lose the overall popular vote in 112 years. 

4) Republicans control the House of Representatives despite losing the overall popular vote by 1.5 million votes. 

5) History will always show that President Barack Obama was in the White House when we located, and killed, Osama bin Ladin. 

6) They oppose birth control, abortion, homosexuality and women’s rights, while believing that government should be based on religious principles… and by “they” I mean Islamic radicals. Though I bet most people were thinking of an entirely different group of people with similar beliefs. 

7) In our Pledge of Allegiance, the phrase “under God” wasn’t added until 1954

8) Tens of millions of conservatives rely on Social Security and Medicare to survive – and both programs are forms of socialism.

9) During a 2012 GOP presidential primary debate, conservatives in the audience booed a solider who was currently serving in Iraq… and not a single Republican candidate on stage defended him. 

10) There’s not a single mention of God, Jesus Christ or Christianity anywhere in our Constitution.

Alright, that’ll wrap this up.  I hope everyone enjoyed this list of indisputable quick facts that I’m almost certain will drive any Republican who reads it absolutely nuts.

    Facts are too lethal for the right wingers. I couldnt help it but got a feeling that if we keep elect next 3-5 Presidents from Democrat side, Republicans would intiate the scorch earth policies, the true mass exctinction of life on this world.

      All I know is the history books show that every time America went to war was always under the Republican Presidents watch. Don’t jump me, and say the the house senates are the ones who vote for war. I just stated it’s usually under a republicans Presidents watch or should I say under republican reign of office. Democrats don’t like war. And they don’t even care if our economy is already in the toilet.

        You may want to reread your history books. Dems were presidents during WWI, WWII, Vietnam, and more smaller wars.

        Actually, you’re right. What amazing is that Republicans and Democrats are having one thing in common; Defense Industries. They always consider that to be singular most important project other than banking system. In exception for wars in 2001-2014, economy tends to prosper for ‘everybody’ in winning country but only for short term.

        Our government missed the Cold War so much already. Lockheed are still pissed about supposedly order of more than 700 F-22 trimmed all the way down to 183+5.

        Uh, which history books are you reading? Woodrow Wilson was president at the US start of WWI, FDR got us into WWII, Truman into Korea and while a bit more complicated as to when we were first “involved” in Vietnam, the first troops in Vietnam were under Kennedy/Johnson – ALL DEMOCRATS. So wtf are you talking about?

        Roosevelt was a Democrat and Clinton bombe Itaq and Serbia

    In the GOP mind there is no such thing as “indisputable”. If Sarah Palin decided to preach that the earth is flat there would be droves of idiots hanging on her words.

    #11 — The Pledge of Allegiance was written by a Socialist, and a Christian one at that!

  • mike

    They know, but they also know that their base doesn’t know and wouldn’t believe any of it. This is called willful ignorance and it has some really deep roots in religious ideology.

  • Rhonda Warmack Houston

    I believe the GOP is just angry that again, they don’t have the presidency and their own mode by which they can achieve getting that office is by rigging the system, as it was done when the electoral votes during the Bush and Gore run for president, the judge who made the decision was a Republican who issued that decision, and you can go back and see that if you look up your recent American history.

      It sickens me to think about this, but imagine hiw different things would now be if Gore had won in 2000. We would not have been at war for over 11 years and would probably have much cleaner fuel and power sources by now.

  • saltcay

    The TEAPUBLICANS aren’t going to let a little thing like FACTS get in the way!

    • Don

      Excuse me, but to Teapublicans the only “facts” come from Fox News. Any other “facts” are dismissed as “the liberal media”.

  • Dan Cantwell

    I saw there was a link, but I don’t always click on them. maybe, it would have been nice to mention WHY the vet was booed. He was GAY.

      correct— repub trash showing their LOVE ( jeeeesus style) of an American serviceman.
      …………………..VOTE regressive republican if U want more of this precious patriotic “love”

    The only fact that matters is that a large percentage of the Reds’ base only support the Reds because they hate the Blues. Address *that* and you solve the crisis of governance we are in.

    The Reds don’t have to have a majority in Congress, nor do they have to win the White House, nor have a majority in the SCotUS. All they have to do is obstruct legislation, and they have half the battle won. Since our government is based on the idea that the majority and minority have to come together and compromise in order to get legislation passed, they are completely content in this role. Clearly, their goal is to shut down the government. Since they can’t do it by defunding it, this is the next best thing: let the government slowly become irrelevant as technology antiquates old laws and obstruct any attempt to pass new laws to deal with any new technologically-driven problems.

    Its brilliant, actually.

    Of course, it will also doom us as a nation and probably as a species as well, but that’s beside the point.

  • Just wondering

    “Endowed by our creator…. ” how’s that not a mention of God? Is there another “creator” suspected here?

    • Grace Abbott

      Another history buff out there, huh? Those words are not in the constitution. You’re thinking of the Declaration of Independence.

  • Bob Schwartz

    tripling the debt and increasing it buy 1.5 trillion dollars is diff then increasing it to 20 trillion… It’s a play om words
