The only way to be a better republican is to be more like a democrat! The republican party is made up of the most f-----up people hows hate and ignorance is driven daily buy the lies of gop leaders and FOX LIE NEWS . GOD BLESS OBAMA!
That's only a recent about face because of the Tea Party.
Abraham Lincoln was the GOP presidential candidate in 1860. If memory serves he won that election and subsequently abolished slavery. The man must be turning in his grave the way GOP turned out.
By the way, my comment is political group agnostic. It has nothing to do with Rep's or Dem's, per se. It's the attitude and philosophy engendered by a particular group that raises my ire. Always has; always will. I have zero tolerance for racism (it's just stupid to judge people solely on their color, sexuality and/or ethnicity) and the rest. If I were to label myself by an "-ism" I'd label myself a bigot against stupidism. Stupid people should not be allowed to breed. We should be all about raising the standard of the species, not catering to its lowest denominator. Shoot me if I'm wrong.
Eiret: Indeed. And if you bother to read a bit of American History you can quickly discover that the role the Rep's have today is the one the Dem's held back during Lincolns day. They were the party of Jim Crow.and interestingly enough they, too, courted the Southern vote and were about as white oriented and racists as the Klan can be. (heh)
Funny how the more things change the more they stay the same, eh?
So it goes...
