MEET THE NEW TALIBAN, SAME AS THE OLD TALIBAN!

.
AMERICAN-TALIBAN.
Ramming a religiously tinted ideology/orthodoxy down the throats of the populace was only supposed to take place in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan and  (until recently) Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and the like.
.
Observe the machinations of the Republican Party on the state level in this country over the last several months as it pertains to abortion and you have to conclude that it falls into the category of a Taliban-like imposition of religious orthodoxy.
.
If we include gay rights the Republican Party is similarly predisposed to quashing any prospect for equal protection for the LGBTV community with rare exceptions such as Republican Senator Rob Portman (OH) who reconsidered only because his own son is gay.
.
The Republican Party is a fundamentalist-oriented political bludgeon that has no qualms about squashing the rights of others to placate their hyperbolic antediluvian religious base.  The only thing propping up the GOP in the 21st century is the 4 or 5 multi-billionaire donors (Koch Bros., Phillip Anschutz, Adolph Coors, Richard Melon Scaife, et al.) willing to fork over good money after bad.  Sheldon Adelson (Las Vegas Casino owner and a $100-million donor to the Romney campaign) is probably going to think otherwise in the future.
.
Without these handful of ultra-wealthy political donors the GOP would blow away like a Texas tumbleweed.  It remains to be seen whether that will in fact happen but if the immigration issue is not resolved soon in this session of Congress the final nail in the coffin of the Republican Party will, in effect, have been driven in by the total inability of the Party of Boehner & McConnell to come to terms with reality.
.
I think the religiousity that is at the core of today’s Republican Party will suffer the same fate as the Muslim Brotherhood did in Egypt in June when their leader, Mohammed Morsi was removed as head of state by the army after a colossal outpouring of opposition from regular people (20-million) demonstrating in the streets across Egypt.  Nothing like that will occur here in this country but the total disconnect between the average voter and the Republican Party as it finds itself in 2013 will result in across-the-board repudiation of their party in the 2014 mid-term congressional elections.
.
The Republican Party is the new Taliban, just like the old Taliban.  Their days are numbered as a meaningful national political entity.
