Conservatives, Grow the F**k Up, Now!

The "rich white boys club" that some people still call the Republican Party is a bunch of immature men with no critical thinking skills. I want to plead with them but the facts are obvious and resounded through the language used by so many of their pundits. But, that would take them being able to listen to anything long enough to understand it with an open mind. They are incapable. I will tell you why in detail in this article. First, I should say that I am white, live in Arizona (a Republican controlled state), was raised as a Methodist, and grew up in a conservative environment. Some people are capable of seeking truth and some just seek the status quo. I am one of the former. That doesn't just happen.
Most conservatives think in terms of their mainstream religion. There are three main religions in the United States who have the most advertising and public indoctrination used and so promote themselves actively, not through attraction to their principles but by indoctrinating their followers' children as soon as they are able to come to the "place of worship". All of these mainstream religions are Abrahamic, which is important, because they are all full of the same antiquated thinking and hierarchical beliefs. No matter how "open minded" a true conservative is, he can't see beyond these things without losing faith in the entire package. First, let me explain hierarchical thinking.
There is no hierarchy of man except in Western style supposed Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Judaism, and Islam) and most people don't know that they are all branches of the same tree. Christianity has only been around for the past 500 years, although the history revisionists that don't want you to know that it stems from King James's need to control the masses when he was in power. Previous to that, there was Constantine, who broke them up into three religions instead of one massive hive of mythology so that it wasn't so far fetched and was more commanding sounding. None of us was told by our parents that we can decide to go to church by our own choosing and to shop around and find one we wanted or to choose not to go at all. Most of us who grew up with mainstream religion were thrust into it beginning with the indoctrination they call "catechism" that amounts to one joining the church as an official member. When they should be kissing your behind and paying you to listen to their mythology, they instead, act like the one being indoctrinated has to "measure up" and prove himself by doing what is expected of him, including tithing.
