We live in a country that is constantly at war with itself. No, not the kind of war as in Civil War, although it sometime seems that the Republicans would be OK with that; right now it is only in the bullying stage. The Republican Party has bullied its way to power on numerous occasions. Richard Nixon believed “the end justifies the means” that whatever measures you have to take to achieve something it’s worth it, for the Republicans this means achieving dominance. This is happening because the GOP has been taken over by Sociopaths; the adults of the party have given up and allowed the juveniles to rule. Anyone who has had the unfortunate experience of dealing with Sociopaths eventually comes to learn some basic facts.
1. YOU CANNOT REASON WITH THEM - The debt crisis nonsense highlighted this first point. There was nothing which President Obama or Dems could possibly have offered Tea Party Republicans that would have satisfied them. Sociopaths adopt a righteous stance and no degree of fact or logic could dislodge them from their beliefs.
2. THEY PLAY THE VICTIM CARD - Stand up to a sociopath and call them out on their actions and they instantly cry foul. When Vice President Biden accurately compared Tea Party negotiator’s tactics to those of a terrorist, the right-wing freaked out. Case in point was Sarah Palin who called Biden’s remark “vile” and “quite appalling”. Yes, that’s the same Sarah Palin who is fond of making the claim that the President of the U. S. “pals around with terrorists”.
3. PSYCHOLOGICAL PROJECTION - Is a form of defense mechanism in which someone attributes thoughts, feelings, and ideas which are perceived as undesirable to someone else. Projection reduces anxiety by allowing the expression of the unwanted unconscious impulses or desires materialize without letting the conscious mind recognize them. Perfect example was how the Republicans ‘lusted’ to impeach Bill Clinton over a sexual indiscretion, when many in their party had a closet full of sexual indiscretions or worse.
This undermines the strength of a country but that doesn’t matter to the Republican Sociopaths because their intrinsic nature is to care only about themselves. At this moment, I have to ask: WHY? Why are they allowed to carry on in this way, when we all know that if they succeed in their quest to achieve Absolute Power our country will not survive in the long term, little by little they will dismantle it (they have already weakened it quite a bit during the Bush/Cheney years) until its dominance on the world stage will resemble that of sub-Saharan Africa. OK, this may look like an over statement but the USA will suffer many years to come if something isn't done to stop these Republican Sociopaths from gaining more power. thinkingblue

What is a narcissistic sociopath?
A narcissistic sociopath is someone with a combination of narcissistic personality disorder and definitive behavioral signs of sociopathy.
People with narcissism are characterized by their excessive and persistent need for others’ admiration and positive reinforcement. They generally have grandiose opinions of themselves and believe they are superior to other people. Narcissists are also frequently convinced that they are above the normal responsibilities and obligations of everyday life, so they usually have significant difficulties maintaining employment or relationships as a result.
The narcissistic sociopath has this type of personality along with a noticeable lack of regard for the rights of others and a tendency to regularly violate those rights.
One noted difference between a narcissistic sociopath and people with narcissism alone is that:
The narcissist with the sociopathy reacts strongly and sometimes even violently to negative feedback. True sociopaths generally do not respond to criticism or care what others may think of them.
A narcissistic sociopath is unable to tolerate criticism and needs constant praise, as well as deference from other people. Many with this condition present themselves in the best light possible and are able to easily charm others to gain their trust.
