Skip to comments.I'M AN EXTREMIST

Last night, I accompanied my wife to a Republican womans meeting where the guest speaker was one of three Repubs running in the primary for MD governor.
First thing - when he took questions, I asked him that lets say he won the primary and his Dem opponent charges that he wants to turn back the clock on the rights for women, take away abortion, the choice of divorce, etc. How does he answer that charge? Well, I got a basic non-answer, such as I listen and people can look at my record, etc. Bloviating BS. I did not press the issue as I am a non-voting member and did not want to make my wife uncomfortable.
Second thing - one women asks the question how do we - Republicans - get extremists such as Tea Party people and Libertarians to vote for Republicans. So - since I have been to a couple Tea Party rallies and support what the Tea Party is doing - I am now an extremist.
Last thing - the same woman who asked that question at the end of the meeting stated that everyone should opppose Common Core. I wondered last night that a moderate Republican - Jeb Bush - is the main Republican pushing that piece of crap.
Basically, this is a vent post. I am thinking of contacting this woman via the leadership and letting her know the real deal.
Congratulations. I am apparently a racist, extermist, right wing nut job, conservative pos. Welcome to the dark side. LOL!
I am a straight, married, employed, white American father. I am The Root Cause of all of the world’s ills.
Oh my GOD! YOU’RE an extremist TOO?! This is provident! I felt so alone in the world. Now I have company.
If a man speaks in the woods and a woman is not present is he still wrong?
I’m anti eating feces so I guys I’m anti-gay.
I wouldn’t worry about words like extremist.
She asked a question. How to get libertines and Tea Partiers to vote for the Republican candidate.
You seem in a great position to answer and patiently provide wisdom and guidance.
I actually know this douchebag (a neighbor of a relative) who is a total liberal in virtually ALL his positions, but he's also a complete racist. Since he's a racist, he thinks he's a conservative, because that's what his television told him racists are.
This thread is therapeutic. We should start a group and have a party. I had no idea there were other “extremists” out there. I thought it was only me and the founding fathers of this nation.
Whew! I am so relieved.
You too? Same here!
But the really odd thing is that I thought I was a left-leaning Democrat when I first came to Maryland...then some left-leaning Maryland Democrats set me straight on that.
Even worse for me, I am all those things plus I am a veteran.
Can’t understand the Post without knowing who the candidate was.
I just sit around all day in my cube working and paying for millions of illegitimate, illegal immigrants’ health care wondering, “Gosh, it’s so hard being this extreme in my views.” I sometimes wonder if it would be easier to just fall in line and stop being so extreme. Just go from extreme down to hard core or even milquetoast.
Goodness, it feels so invigorating to be among extreme friends.
I see your veteran and raise you Christian.
LOL! My birth state is going down the dumper. Just hatched there, never lived there. One state down several times as a youngster. Service brat so no place was “home”.
I drive an SUV, a big one.
Don’t bother, the Republican Women’s group is mostly a waste of time, kind of like any other Women’s club. I used to belong and I just gave up after trying to talk to some of the women.
One afternoon, during lunch the women were discussing the opening of Trader Joe’s in the town and this one woman was just raving about and finished up by saying, “ and everything they sell is free traded.” I just shook my head and asked, “and you think that is a good thing?”
You poor, evil bastard.
We should get together and beat some hippies!
I have a 3/4 ton truck and know where my guns fell out of the boat... i also have been know to chew tobaccy and burn tires.
I don't use drugs and eat meat, dark red meat.
