Oklahoma Republican Advocates Euthanizing Poor and Disabled: A Republican gubernatorial candidate in Oklahoma named Christopher Barnett has allegedly proposed we employ euthanasia for people on food stamps or who are too disabled to work in order to save taxpayers the expense of supporting them.
Wow - and who says the Republican Party isn’t the party of ideas anymore? After all, nothing says I’m “Pro-Life” quite like euthanasia. This kind of talk makes White House staff remarks about John McCain’s dying or Republican’s promises of “death squads” under “Obamacare” seem like mere child’s play.
Of course - not surprisingly, Barnett’s now claiming he was hacked. I’ll bet a lot of Germans would have wished that excuse was available during Nuremberg. As for me, I often wonder how anyone could ever even consider voting for someone like this, but then I remember that nearly half the US population has double-digit IQ’s - and suddenly the GOP’s appeal begins to make sense again.
