Myths

From Why Republicans Suck
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm not sure where to put this chapter...

American Sharia

Republicans and other right-wingers often claim that Muslims are constantly trying to impose Sharia law, often citing (as evidence) court cases which either found against the validity of Sharia law or were disputes regarding legal contracts which stipulated that Sharia should be followed.

Republican Fiscal Responsibility

Republicans often campaign on the basis of a myth that they're more fiscally responsible than Democrats, that they will reduce debt and improve economies.

The reality is that they're terrible at it. Republicans tend to run budgets into the ground with special favors and reduced taxes for their "friends" (i.e. largest donors) while slashing budgets for essential services, whose absence then drives the economy into the ground.

Islam vs. Christianity

Myth: Islam is inherently more violent than Christianity.
