Hi, I am a life-long republican from Iowa, and am very concerned with the direction the Republican party is going. As a man of faith, I am very skeptical that George Bush holds the same faiths I do, I feel he politicizes it FAR too much. I hope this is a true and open dialogue so that we may keep to our values and keep the good in office. I want my two children to grow up in a country with real Republican values, many of which reflect the Christian household I was brought up in. I was also taught there MUST be a separation of church and state, a small government, and compassion for fellow man are necessary. I want to live in a country where I can speak my mind about the issues that matter to me without fear.
Some of the things I am concerned with are: What is Cheney saying Go **** Yourself to other national politicians?? And making money through Haliburton off of the war? He thus Breaks the commandment Thou shalt not steal. See: http://www.voanews.com/article.cfm?objectID=E6171DC3-72C4-45CA-A8F32792A426EFAA
I do not think that increasing the national debt by $445 billion! dollars is very conservative, I myself have no debt and was raised to never ever go in debt. My kids are inheriting a massive debt from my generation that their kids just may be paying on too!
Now that it proven there were no weapons of mass destruction, didnt President Bush break the commandment Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor?
Going to war breaks the commandment Thou shalt not kill. My family has fought in every American war since the Civil War. War is SOMETIMES justified obviously, but violence begets violence. Even more ~ not supporting our troops properly, putting them in harm's way needlessly, cutting their pay and screwing with Veterans Benefits.
I have several friends who have traveled abroad this summer and everywhere they went people were enraged by the actions of our government, I want to live in a world where my children can travel abroad at will peacefully.
And to quote a fellow blog poster: "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing." Take that, hand-wringing liberals!
So, I guess I am asking any fellow citizens what they think, any suggestions?? Where has our party gone? The other option looks better everyday!
Well, I'm a lifelong liberal Democrat, but this year I'm voting for George W. Bush!!
Uhh, sure you are. Begone troll!
OK I'll bite. What about the "other option" looks better?
Me too...weird coinky dink, ain't it?
Tell your pal Moby, nobody listens to techno.
But this year she's voting for George W. Bush!
If by the other option you mean death by ZOT, you got it!
Markus, Markus, Markus. What Cheney said.
Interesting... I'm a lifelong Green Party member but will be voting for GWB this year. ABK, I say.
That ain't in the Constitution buddy.
I am a life-long Stalinist and founding member of the Comintern, but this year I am voting for George Bush.
Hey Goober, I ain't no filosofur or nuttin', but exactly how does one prove a negative? (And we won't even mention everything we've found that proves the weapons existed.)
I hear the ZOT capacitors charging now.
If you truly were a man with faith, you would not criticize W for living his faith.
I love the smell of ZOT in the morning.
Sure you are.
