Typical GOP Hypocrit- Do as I say, not as I do. My Christian religion good, your "other" religion bad, Gays are bad/not equal, but gays in my family good. Gay marriage bad, but gay marriage for my gay children good, Dick Cheney. Abortion bad, but Death Penalty good ! Food stamps bad, but corporate welfare and tax evading loop holes to make me personally filthy rich good- Mitt Romney. Social security and welfare good for my family to recieve, but others are moochers (Rep Paul Ryan). My immigrant parents good, other immigrants bad- Marco Rubio. - The GOP hypocracy list is endless and nausiating.
