What's wrong with these conservative Americans?

The right wing conservatives within the Republican Party are known for their conservative views on social and political issues. One can understand and empathize with them on many social issues, after all, things are not good within the fabric of American society. With easy access to arms, violence has become ingrained within the American society. Just two days ago, a young University of Texas, Austin, student fired shots in the campus, and finally killed himself. Drugs are also easily available, which are responsible for much of the gun violence plaguing this country. The TV programs are increasingly pushing the bar on tolerating shows that can't be seen in a family setup. And with the internet, nothing is closed to anyone. Pornography is just that easy in the fingertips of any computer user.

With cell phones and i-phones, etc. available to most kids, studies suggest that they spend more time on those gadgets than with their books and home-works. No wonder that American students are outperformed by students from Asian countries.

And then homosexuality and other kind of abnormal practices, erstwhile perceived to be immoral and thus unacceptable, are becoming more common these days with legislation passed to make such practices legal and part of mainstream lifestyle.

Surely, one can understand why the conservatives are crying out foul saying enough is enough, and trying to pull the electorates towards electing more conservative personalities that would put the clock back in time, and stop this, what they call with some justification, madness. They seem to believe that they have the answer to all the social perversions and excesses with 'liberal' experiments within the American society. Given their front-line and unabashed crusade against such social ills, one would naturally assume that they are personally a moral people. But the fact belies that widely held perception.

As I have shown in the past, none of these guys - Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and other conservative hawks - are what they portray them to be. They are outright hypocrites with lifestyles that are antitheses of what they propose or propagate. Look at the Republican/tea party candidate Carl Paladino contesting for the gubernatorial seat in the state of New York. Published reports now show that he had fathered a daughter during an extramarital affair with a former employee 10 years ago. He is angry over press inquiries on the matter.

We have already seen the hypocritical lifestyles of many Christian priests and bishops that are guilty of sodomy, adulterny, and other types of immorality. Many of these perverts entertain a holier than thy view of the world that they live in.

Worse still, these conservatives (whether or not affiliated with church) more often than not are bigots and racists. They are also gungho about wars and personal rights that go beyond their personal and national security, bordering into abuses and incursions and occupations of foreign countries. It is a sick and sick mentality altogether!
