With all due respect, I believe it is the Congressional Republicans themselves, along with the leadership, that bare a great deal of blame for the position they now find themselves. True, voters bare some responsibility, the media bares some responsibility, the liberals, but it is the Republicans themselves that, I believe, bare the brunt of blame.
How many hundreds of posts here on FR have we seen over the past 2, 3, 4 years complaining about Republican lack of spine, of Republican capitulation on numerous subjects, of Republican lack of action on borders, etc.
They still have a small window of opportunity to turn this around, but that window is closing fast. I will be voting Republican, but I am not sure how the majority of the peeples will vote.
don't forget the multiple hundreds of thousands of "Boomers" who served this nation in honor and selflessness, leaving 55,000 of our brothers and sisters lying dead on the field of battle for the Ideal of America, when most of the American "parent" generation sat on the sidelines in quiet dumbness and then watched as we came home to be spit upon and reviled in many unthinkable ways.
For God's sake ImpBill, how did my post give you the impression that I have forgotten those sacrifices? I actually do take offense at that. I cannot understand how you came to that conclusion.
I am glad you will be voting and watching. I am not sure if I will even grace the polls with my presence. If I don't it will be the first time since 1967, when I was first able to vote (age 21). But I will more than likely go and do my "duty". Greg Adams
