Rick Scott’s loony-tunes 11-point plan: Classic GOP projection, and a roadmap to theocracy. No wonder Mitch McConnell is unhappy: Scott’s “batsh*t” plan reveals way too much about what Republicans want.

No surprise there. Fascism in the name of religion and (false) patriotism. These people don’t want to live in a constitutional republic (which is our particular form of democracy), they want to live in an evangelical version of iran. I’d like them all to fuck off and leave the rest of us alone.

My reaction to some of his points. Not that the others are good, just would take a lot more typing to examine why they are bad as well. Point 1 – Our kids **will** say the pledge of allegiance, salute the Flag, learn that America is a great country, Start’s off with requiring a pledge and flag salute. Ignores that SCOTUS said requiring these activities is unconstitutional.   Point 3 – The soft-on-crime days of coddling criminal behavior will end. We will re-fund and respect the police because, they, not the criminals, are the good guys. Ignores the whole point that police sometimes are the criminals. I also wondering what coddling he thinks is taking place. Does he mean to arrest Donald Trump?   Point 5 – We will grow America’s economy, starve Washington’s economy, and stop Socialism. … sell government buildings and assets Starve Washington’s economy? Does that mean severe limitation to lobbyists? Stop Socialism – sounds like code words for axing Medicare and Social Security. And sell government buildings and assets. I suspect what he really means is get rid of national parks and lands. And lets not get started on why turning government programs into for profit private enterprises isn’t the way to go.   Point 7 – Fair Fraud-Free Elections – We will protect the integrity of American Democracy and stop left-wing efforts to rig elections. Apparently right-wing efforts are still a go.   Point 8 – We will protect, defend, and promote the American Family at all costs. The nuclear family is crucial to civilization, it is God’s design for humanity, and it must be protected and celebrated. To say otherwise is to deny science. In other words, screw the gays, they give straight families cooties.   Point 9 – Gender, Life, Science Keep screwing the LGBT. And while we’re at it, screw women’s rights.   Point 10 – Religious Liberty and Big Tech – Americans will be free to welcome God into all aspects of our lives, and we will stop all government efforts to deny our religious freedom and freedom of speech. For now on, it’s only freedom *for* religion; none of that freedom *from* religion stuff.

Rick Scott is a purulent diaper rash on the butthole that is Florida. Keep him out of the rest of our universe.

Perfect example of when a pinhead becomes rich he expects everyone to think he is no longer a pinhead. Scott is not only a rich pinhead, but a religious lunatic. Avoid, vote out, ignore.
