    Take the Teabagger Pledge!!! No Socialist ANYTHING!!!!

     

    Here at Americans Against The Tea Party we get emails all the time from stupid idiot TEApublicans who claim they’re not “socialists.” Usually the messages are barely coherent with misspelled words and grammar that would embarrass a kindergartner. This Teabagger Socialism-Free Purity Pledge made the rounds a few years ago and we thought we’d re-post it again for the trolls here and at our facebook page. Thanks to Daily Kos for keeping it real. Share this with the TEApublicans you know and watch their socialist heads explode!
    I, TEApublican, do solemnly swear to uphold the principles of a socialism-free society and heretofore pledge my word that I shall strictly adhere to the following:
    I will complain about the destruction of 1st Amendment Rights in this country, while I am duly being allowed to exercise my 1st Amendment Rights.
    I will complain about the destruction of my 2nd Amendment Rights in this country, while I am duly being allowed to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights by legally but brazenly brandishing unconcealed firearms in public.
    I will foreswear the time-honored principles of fairness, decency, and respect by screaming unintelligible platitudes regarding tyranny, #$%$-ism, and socialism at public town halls. Also.
    I pledge to eliminate all government intervention in my life. I will abstain from the use of and participation in any socialist goods and services including but not limited to the following:
    Social Security
    Medicare/Medicaid
    State Children’s Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP)
    Police, Fire, and Emergency Services
    US Postal Service
    Roads and Highways
    Air Travel (regulated by the socialist FAA)
    The US Railway System
    Public Subways and Metro Systems
    Public Bus and Light Rail Systems
    Rest Areas on Highways
    Sidewalks
    All Government-Funded Local/State Projects
    Public Water and Sewer Services (goodbye socialist toilet, shower, dishwasher, kitchen sink, outdoor hose!)
    Public and State Universities and Colleges
    Public Primary and Secondary Schools
    Sesame S

    • bluecloud -

      I posit that before one can complain (in a intelligent, coherent, rational, meaningful, etc., etc. manner) one must understand what it is their complaining about. As regards your 2nd Amendment, does anyone in America, including your Supreme Court, have a grasp of the scope, breadth, depth, limits, and parameters of said Amendment? The Amendment is 27 words, each and everyone are as important as the others. The true meaning of the Amendment requires all 27 words be accounted for. So, what's the complaint?

      As regards the 'I pledge to eliminate all government intervention in my life.' pledge, is not this an example of one of the reasons USA is in the circumstance it is in? I offer, and rather respectfully at that, that both your pledges and your societal leanings be somewhat more biased toward a 'one for all - all for one' standard than an 'every man for himself' standard. You might want to review the work of Martin Niemöller as regards the price one might pay for subscribing to a 'I pledge to eliminate all government intervention in my life.' History shows said price can be rather substantial.

      Cheers,

    • You are such a joke Blue. You post this like its some clever indictment of the right but all you do is show the depth of your ignorance. Being against socialism doesn't, never has and never will, mean being absolutely against government programs - we all get that government has a role to play - its a matter of degree.
