As a lifelong conservative and a 40+ year Republican, I haven’t given up on the GOP yet.
But its getting close.
You said — As a lifelong conservative and a 40+ year Republican, I havent given up on the GOP yet.
Yep, and precisely the reason why this will result in the Democrats winning from now on.... (can someone say H. Ross Perot?).... LOL...
It is 50+ plus years for me, and I've given up on Republicans. This Nation requires some serious work, from the ground up.
I'm with you. I've begun looking a little more into things I used to not really pay attention to!
Like Ron Paul (I don't support our War On Drugs, neither does he), the Constitution Party, the Libertarian Party.
I'm participating in local Tea Party's and helping out with one, tho I'm not so sure how that's going cause we (organizers one 1 party and I) don't see eye to eye on exactly what a conservative LOOKS like (there is more to being a conservative than being an arrogant, white snob... I don't care if you go to church 7 days a week, IMHO).
I was a FredHead during the campaign and I supported McCain as the lesser of two evils. I'm done with all that. I went to a went to a Glenn Beck viewing party, I've logged onto Project 9/12. This morning I find myself questioning if participating in the Tea Parties is even worth the effort!
If someone asked me today if I am a Dem or a Rep I probably say, I'm just a FReeper.
