This is what I see in the republican party. They make accusations not based upon scientific or peer reviewed data and then act on it as if it were factually correct. To me the republican party has become the party of assumptions. They assume something is right or wrong and then act on that assumption with their standard harsh and brutish solution. What is even worse is that they are not consistent in their attacks on presumed rights and wrongs. It is their inability to blame anyone for anything that is outside the working/middle/poor class. As if every problem in society is a scar to the wealthy and the cut comes from the masses.
For me, I see their problem is in their unwillingness or inability to reason. Logically speaking there are many problems and the problems stem from all quarters of life, yet not to republicans. I have always considered myself a simple person who occasionally entertains some complex thoughts. When I do entertain these complex thoughts I spend a lot of time reasoning them out logically. I question what kind of impact will these thoughts have if they became policy or what is alleviated by their inception? I try to see a list of good and not good and then weigh that list as to whether my thoughts are of value. I don't see that process with republicans, instead I see them already decided upon a value that helps the wealthy and hurts the less than wealthy and implementing it without a second thought.
