A couple months ago, prior to the election, I found this video.  Please take a look at the video if you have not seen it already to understand my response.

Its time to respond to the stupid, idiocy and ignorance of this video.

We don’t like shopping at small neighborhood stores. We don’t want the problem of choosing where to shop. And we just love cheap plastic crap from China.

No one forces you buy cheap goods from Walmart or any other store.  The fact of the matter is that Walmart provides hundreds, if not thousands, of jobs to hard working Americans.  They also provide goods to consumer citizens of lower income.  And they give over $400 million to charity each year.

I’m voting Republican because I don’t really want a cure for AIDS or for breast cancer.

Its not the job of the government to provide money for research.  Their are plenty of companies out their doing this research but it takes money.  These companies also deserve to make a profit for their research and development.

I’m voting Republican because I think new drugs should be made available immediately whether they’ve been tested properly or not. If the major pharmaceutical companies’ bottom lines are healthy, then I feel healthy too.

Drug testing is important but even if the FDA did not exist their would be consumer protections.  Its called civil law and tort lawsuits.  A drug company is not going to make a drug that kills potential customers because that hurts their bottom line.  Also they will test it because they know if it does something its not supposed to they will be sued by the users and cost them more money, which hurts their bottom line.

I’m voting Republican so that my little Caitlin can be in a classroom with at least 30 other children. That way she can be challenged by fighting for attention.

Thirty years ago our parents were in classrooms with that many kids and they honestly know more than our kids do now.

I’m voting Republican because women just can’t be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies. Never. Ever. Ever.

The choice to take away the life of another human being, especially an innocent child who had no choice in their creation, is not a right.  It’s murder.

I’m voting Republican because I’ve already seen the great outdoors. Continuing our use of fossil fuels freely is far more important than preserving our natural wildlands.

Would you rather double or triple the amount we spend on gas and electricity because we have to buy oil from people who hate us or because the clean energy options are not cost effective?  Be my guest.  I will use the resources we have, until those cleaner sources are more efficient and cheaper.

We’re voting Republican because we like a conservative majority on the Supreme Court. We really like knowing that even if we’re separate, we’ll still be called equal.

Conservatives on the Supreme Court at least have a proper theory of understanding the Constitution.  They don’t try and reinterpret it to mean what they want it to mean.  They don’t try to change the Constitution through unconstitutional means.  It was the Republicans who freed the slaves, granted them equal and voting rights both in law and through Constitutional Amendments.  Racial segregation, Jim Crow laws and other racist policies were the product of the Democrats, not the Republicans.  It was the Republicans in Congress that passed the Civil Rights Acts of the 1960’s, not the Democrats.  It was also a “conservative” court that overturned Plessy v. Furguson.

I’m voting Republican because I need to be told who I can love. I need the government to tell me. I need them to tell me how I can best show a lifetime commitment. And Republicans are just the folks to do that.

Most Republicans could not give a crap about who you love.  But I think we should pause before we give up thousands of years of tradition and take marriage (which has always been between a man and woman) and fundamentally change it.

I’m voting Republican because corporations should not have to pay to clean up environmental damage. The EPA is an outmoded idea. If people want clean water, buy it in a bottle.

The EPA, as part of the Executive Branch, is an enforcement agency, not a law making body.  When they expand regulations they are breaking the constitution that gives all law making power to Congress.

I’m voting Republican because I don’t want to know if the food I am eating has been genetically modified or exposed to radiation. I don’t want to have to live with that fear, you know? So if the label says it’s food, that’s good enough for me.

Studies have shown their is no problems with irradiated meat.  It would cut down on green house gasses since we could ship products in regular trucks.  Also, we have been genetically modifying our food for thousands of years, its called selective breeding.

I’m voting Republican because I really enjoy being screwed by the utility companies.

If utility companies were allowed to compete like other companies for business you wouldn’t get screwed.  Right now with state ownership you are screwed because they have the monopoly.  They can raise rates and you the citizen have no recourse.

Because we need more minorities in prison.

Criminals go to prison not minorities. If their is a person who is in prison and they are a minority,  its not the because of Republicans, it because they are a criminal.

Because hybrid cars really suck.

They do.  No one buys them.  Even when you have the option between a gas car and the same car as a hybrid, people overwhelmingly choose the gas powered car.

Because I just don’t feel like I deserve health insurance.

Its your responsibility to provide it for yourself.  If you want health insurance, buy it, no one is stopping you.  Its not the job of the government or your job to provide it.

Because Texas needs more billionaires.

Texas can have as many billionaires as it wants.  They have a tax system that encourages the building of wealth.  That’s why their economy is growing in this recession and people are moving their.

I’m voting Republican because sometimes the constitution is just one big inconvenient headache.

Both parties have had a habit in the last 100+ years of ignoring the Constitution.

I think the whole world should be run by one big corporation. I think it would be so much cozier.

If Republicans for corporations why did the Democrats in Congress bail out those evil banks and car companies that failed due to their own mismanagement?

Because all other countries are in fear to us. We should start as many wars as we need to keep it that way.

Countries should fear to attack us.  If other countries know that we will destroy them if they attack us, then they probably won’t attack us.  I don’t think we need to start wars, just end them when they decide to take a sucker punch at us.

So I can stay in Iraq… So I can go to Iran.

Iran and other nations are a threat to the world.  If you cannot recognize that then you are deaf, blind and dumb to the realities of the real world.  I am not suggesting we start a war, but we should be care of them.

Here’s a different video that makes the statement of the other side.  If you want to know more about the statements made in this video check out the following the VerticleBlue website.  They explain every statement in the video with facts, because they are such stubborn things.
