Even a Stopped Clock is Right Twice a Day WorldNetDaily columnist Tom Ambrose is unhappy with the Republican party. He writes:

It's time for a major reality check: The GOP doesn't walk on water, nor has it been anointed by God as His personal ambassador to Washington, D.C.

Today, many people feel the Republican Party is at least as corrupt as the Democratic Party. There are good reasons why large numbers of conservatives are leaving the Republican Party. Indeed, why any religious conservatives still continue to support the GOP is difficult to comprehend, since the GOP not only supports the same causes as Democrats, they also lie about what they really stand for.

I can hear the howls of protest even as I write this, but just so you know where I'm coming from, I twice was an elected member of a large Republican county central committee. Nobody wanted to see the Republican Party succeed more than I did.

But the facts are clear: The GOP only pretends to support conservative values.

The WorldNetDaily publishes some of the most comically extreme right-wing rhetoric to be found on the internet, and this column proves to be no exception. Here is the list of offenses Ambrose provides to back up his claims about the GOP's perfidy:

Since Bush has been in office and the Republicans have controlled the House and Senate, here are just a few of the most egregious things that God's Party has done for America:

  • continued to support the United Nations, which seeks control over America.
  • continued to allow the Internal Revenue Service to destroy the lives of U.S. citizens.
  • continued to allow judges to use the U.S. Constitution as toilet paper.
  • continued the cover-up of the attack on TWA Flight 800.
  • continued the cover-up of the Oklahoma City bombing.
  • continued to pay lip service to protecting U.S. borders, while actually inviting more illegal immigration.

Ambrose is obviously insane. I also wonder about the connection between any of his six issues and belief in God.

However, it's nice to see a conservative point out that the GOP is completely full of it when they present themselves as the party of fundamentalist Christianity.
