The US Republican Party is WORSE than al-Qaeda, ISIS, the Taliban, and the Ukrainian junta all rolled into one… it’s the main dynamo behind Godless Mammon… “Winning is the only thing”… “Greed is good”… “The race goes to the swiftest”. Our Lord said, Not all those who say ‘Lord, Lord’ will win the Kingdom of Heaven. Anyone who argues for Free Market Crapitalism argues for Godless Mammon… if they mouth religious platitudes as they do so, that makes them all the worst… ponder that.
The hatred of the Republican Party for Russia is well-known. It’s not a new thing, sadly speaking… here’s a quote from D O Rogozin, from 2011:
Rogozin mentioned past meetings that he attended in the US Senate with US Republicans clearly demonstrated “that this part of the American political establishment doesn’t intend to have any business with the Russian Federation”. The Republicans use their “hatred for the incumbent master of the White House to… spoil relations on a global scale” (source).
One reason that the Republicans hate Russia is that it panders to its Know Nothing base. These are mostly Evangelical Sectarians, who hate Christianity (we’re not real Christians in their eyes, dontcha know). Therefore, the GOP panders to their ignorance and hate… leading to policies that harm our Ancestral Motherland and our Church. The Republicans are going to do what they’re going to do… but we as Orthodox shouldn’t vote for them. If they hate us… OK, that’s what they do. However, we’re stupid if we vote for or support ANY Republican candidate. The Republican Party is calling for warlike measures against our Russian Motherland as it hates the very idea of Holy Rus… you see, if there were an independent Holy Rus, people might look to it and its ideology, and not to Toddler Crapitalist America and its Me First Greedster ideology. That’s the situation in a nutshell. Don’t be fooled by GOP bleats of “Pro-Life”… they’re anti-abortion… which isn’t the same thing at all.
As Russian Orthodox Christians, we have an obligation to support Truth, Justice, and Compassion… the GOP supports none of that… it supports Greed, Power, and Might Makes Right. It’s your choice…
