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!
Woo hooo! I'm here pre-kitty!
You mean like going to Madrid (BOOM!), or London (nearly BOOM!), or Israel, or Pakistan, or Indonesia, or on the continent of Africa, or NYC, or Wash D.C., or PA?
Hey lifelong Pubbie, if you don't $#!@!&! care for the $#!@!&! Vice President's $#!@!&! language to Leaky Leahy, what does a good Christian like yourself think of John F'in Kerry's $#!@!&! Rolling Stone interview?
Okay, but just don't tell her I said that!
I have never voted Republican in a presidential election, but after listening to your arguments I will never again vote for a democrat.
"I was also taught there MUST be a separation of church and state"
No. The Constitution says that 'CONGRESS shall make no law establishing religion....'
It does NOT say that religion could not be established by the states.
As a matter of fact. It says that states have the RIGHT to establish whatever they wish.
There is no constitutional 'law' prohibiting religion in any government established institution, just as long as Congress doesn't make it an 'official' policy.
clinton wasn't Republican. The author has the party names reversed.
And this year, I'm voting for George W. Bush!!
I'm the love child of Che Guevera and Rosa Luxemburg and I'm voting for George Bush!
"Well, I'm a lifelong liberal Democrat, but this year I'm voting for George W. Bush!!"
Beautiful! Deserves a thread all its own.
LOL! Post of the Day!
Bring on the Kitties!
Sure you are, buddy. Sure you are.
Now which seminar did you attend again? Slate Magazine's? Michael Moore's? The DNC's?
"I am a life-long Stalinist and founding member of the Comintern, but this year I am voting for George Bush.
LOL Very funny.

Come on, someone's got to post the "You're a dumbass" picture of the dad from "That 70's Show". (Gotta admit, I love that picture!)
