I want you to know that I am registered Republican and I am not proud of it. The party that I joined is not the same party that exists today.
It has been hijacked by the tea party and the religious right. I wrote about their coming mistakes in this blog back in April of this year and I suggested that they cater to women’s needs and try not to tell them what they can do with their bodies.
The immigrant situation other than self deportation.
Try not to ignore any minority.
Give the youth of this country some new ideas other than outdated 1950’s dogma.
Be sensitive to the gay population and to cut out all these banned same sex amendments.
Make sure the rich pay their share of taxes.
Be sensitive to the enviroment, stop saying you will eliminate the EPA.
Planned Parenthood does a lot of good, keep it.
The old ,white, rich, cranky old men that run this party have ruined it and they are headed to oblivion. Pretty soon they will be a non factor.
Before Obama had received enough votes I told my wife that he was going to win because I saw the following:
Claire Mc Caskill, Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Baldwin won their respective races. In Florida an amendment to remove Supreme Court Justices that were deemed too liberal by Governor Scott and the Republican led legislature failed miserably by a 3 to 1 vote. I could see the handwriting on the wall at that time. The people were fed up with the partisan political bullshit.
I hope this party has gotten a wake up call and that the national leaders get their act together before they become irrelevant. If they keep up with the obstructionist crap, I hope they get voted out of office when it’s their turn.
Congrats to President Hipster and I hope he does the best for the people of this great country as he has promised.
