I don't think it can be repeated often enough. The Bush/Cheney years the GOP is totally ashamed of to the extent most that were in leadership positions were not even invited to the convention, was the worst thing that has happened to America in my lifetime exceeding eight decades.
There are no Conservatives. The last truly Conservative President was Eisenhower. Reagan was an actor playing a part that he did better than any movie he was in.
Get this straight: Without regulation on the de facto governing entities, the Banks, Big Parma, Military Industrial Complex, the Health Care providers, Big Oil that is not really an American entity, they are Internationalists, etc. this nation will go all the way to Totalitarianism.
We can pick on all the warts Obama and the Democrats have and they still will be in favor of Americans over international control of our future.
I heard so much Bull Sh*t at that convention than we can not be expected to believe. Let me ask any on this blog. What exactly do you see as the Right Wing plan that will be good for average Americans? More tax cuts for the un-needy? More military hardware that is left in the hands of our enemies that will use it against us, but does put our wasted bucks in the pockets of the likes of Halliburton? How about a sham health care deal that will not save enough lives or bring comfort to the aged but again will put our treasure in the hands of greedy bastards? Does it seem reasonable that drugs we ship to Canada that are retailed at lower prices there but are illegal for us to buy except here where they stick it to us? Are you happy to pay fifty bucks for an aspirin at most hospitals? Is everyone OK with bankers gambling with our money and if they win or lose they make it big while we have to cover the losses? Who exactly do the stupid trade deals we make help? Not the general population of America.
Do I make my point? I'm not saying that Democrats are free of such things. What I am saying is they are the only party that gives us the ability to make the country better through voting by every citizen or are you satisfied with voter suppression, the only actual voter fraud as there is almost no voter impersonation detected anywhere?
My first vote for president went to a Republican that was a genuine Conservative patriot that actually cared about all of us, Dwight Eisenhower. What we have now is the Tea Party tail wagging the dog that passes for actual Republicanism .... but, they are a gang of liars.
I voted for Reagan for his first term, then I learned what a hoax the "Voodoo Economics" the Trickle Down Theory was and have never voted for the Right Wing again.
I agree it may take a bit of holding one's nose to vote for the Democrats but they have the only path out of the coming Totalitarianism. I should remind us that it was the Blue Nose Democrats that screwed us when the party had the numerical advantage that kept the Obama administration from doing much of what was promised. We do need to nominate people other than those that are fake democrats.
When some say people like Romney are out of touch, I disagree. They know exactly what they are doing and they get away with it because they are definitely in touch with their greed.
I'm at the time in my life when I can see the light at the end of the tunnel moving towards me. If there is one failing that holds us back the most to do with human nature, it is the inability most have to see beyond their own lifetimes. If we do think of the future, then we can all be Founding Mothers and Fathers.
