I have been a lifelong independent with democratic leanings. During the 80's I was converting to Republican leanings because of their mantra of
fiscal and personal responsibility.
That was until the first Bush election and the Republicans started their game of dirty pool and underlying racism with the Willie Horton thing.
I have voted for one Republican since in all the various posts that I have voted for.
That party is controlled by many who preach fear while hiding under their sanctity of God. They disgust me, and many like myself.
The cards have now changed. It is now the democrats that are preaching fiscal responsibility, etc. The Republicans are still preaching fear. They
paint democrats as unpatriotic which offends millions like myself that honorably served in the armed forces. They even succeeded last cycle in
getting Max Cleland defeated in Georgia as being unpatriotic. He had lost three limbs in Vietnam while being so unpatriotic. The gullible people
fell for it.
When will the American public quit listening to this bullsh.t? It is time for this to stop.
