ROFLAMO, this is what happens to your brain when you vote conservative

While I'm not up on the US political scene other than what makes headline news, I've gotta say that the clip is priceless, what a buffoon

To me, it is pretty obvious that republicans are being targeted.

It's we Republicans who are holding up this BIG bulls eye shouting, "COME AND HIT ME!!!"

No one here at Susan's is targeting us.  Our party leaders have set us up and we are doing it to ourselves.

Then we had John Ashcroft, the Patriot act, Guantanamo bay cuba, secret searches, secret courts, Secret prisons, Arresting Americans in America and denying them their constitutional access to the courts, lies to go into Iraq, Torture, Secret rendition, Outing a CIA agent, All the corruption, Katrina, Warrantless spying on Americans, Abu Ghraib, Haditha, Iran, tax cuts for the wealthy, the supreme court, I could keep going.

As things stand now my vote will be for anything but Republicans. Now that might change if a republican worthy of my vote runs but I seriously doubt that happens with the religious fundies in charge of their party.

The party needs to go back to its fundamental roots of smaller Federal governement and fiscal responsibility.

As a republican, I, to, am so disenchanted with where the party has gone that I am also not voting republican for the next several elections.  It will take that long to start swinging the party back to where it needs to be.


A friend of mine calls me a social Democrat and a fiscal Republican.  I think that is pretty accurate and it may be the best of both worlds!

Well, you can't have your cake and eat it too.  Maybe there's another party that better stands for what you believe in like what you stated above.


Up till 2000 I was a Republican btw, incase I didn't make that clear in my previous message.  Before the 2004 election, I voted mainly a republican ticket. Yes I even voted for Bush in 2000

Shame on you Susan.  I voted Gore in 2000.  Washington won the democrat vote, but it wasn't enough.  At least you learned your lesson. :)
