4 Amazing Things About The US The GOP Wishes Were #AlternativeFacts

Here are some lovely little factoids to piss off your nearest Republican:

1. We are not a Christian nation.

Sorry, Fundies. We do not have an official national religion. In our First Amendment of the Bill of Rights, we have a clause specifically saying this:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

Also, the word Christian doesn’t appear anywhere in the Constitution.

2. The 2nd Amendment Applies To A Militia.

While we are on the subject of the Bill of Rights, let’s look at the 2nd Amendment that the Republicans love so much. It reads:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Yes, it does say that the people should have guns. However, it also refers to a well-regulated militia. This right doesn’t come without regulations. Sorry, gun nuts.

3. Trickle-Down Economics Doesn’t Work

Trickle-down economics doesn’t work. Cutting the tax rate at the top doesn’t benefit anyone but the people at the top. In the 1980s, when former President and Republican Saint Ronald Reagan was using trickle-down economics, wages and jobs did not increase. Rich people don’t get that way by giving away their money.

4. The “Liberal Media” Seems Liberal Because They Report Facts

Republicans say anything besides Fox News is “liberal” media. Sorry, guys, Politifact and other organizations have found that Faux News lies more than it doesn’t.
