Delusionary

Representative Michele Bachman is at it again. The Minnestoa Republican is crazily calling for a revolution. Through her distortions she is blaming President Obama for the crisis that the previous administration has left us in and trying to scare constituents. Calling the president's economic policies Marxist, Bachman is trying to smear the Democrats for dealing with the mess by making the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.

She masks this by going on Sean Hannity's program claiming our freedom is at risk. And just yesterday a friend from high school in mid-Michigan sent me an email out of the blue quoting a Dr. Adrian Rogers saying "you can't legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom...." Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Interesting coincidence.

With the active campaign against this president, led by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, it's no wonder some people who listen to these shows believe what they hear. How many of them read the now disappearing newspapers? The country is becoming more disconnected.

Bachman and those like her take advantage of this fact by using polemics to stir the pot. Like she did at the Republican National Convention last summer, Bachman is coming across as the twisted, far-right idealogue that she is. She thinks she is better than other people and wants to preserve the disparities that have kept hardworking people down during the Bush presidency.

Now with all her armed and dangerous rhetoric, she is stirring the pot. To what end? This narrow-minded true believer is one scary woman. Kind of reminds me of someone else only moreso, also.
