I love what the GOP stands for; a smaller government, states rights, and strong individual rights. At this point in the election cycle who do you
stand behind and why? Or do you stand behind the incumbent, President Barak Obama? Why do you think you would vote for them and why?
The GOP by there actions prove themselves time and time again to be for the wealthy and elite in the country. I see absolutely no evidence that they
are for smaller government, as the last GOP administration grew both the government and national dept to record levels. The argument over states
rights has raged since the civil war and today the states have no rights but to conform to the federal government or risk losing highway funds. The
GOP doesn't support individual rights at all, just look at the legislation they have recently passed and the legislation they wish to pass.
All legislation that points us in the direction of a police state has its roots and support in the GOP. The GOP supported giving the military the
right to patrol our streets and to indefinitely detain citizens without trial.
You will not have freedom or liberty under GOP rule, they have sold us out to big business and corporations and big banks.
All you need to do is a little research and you will find what you have wrote laughable, and while your researching look at the condition of red
states compared to blue states and tell me your happy with GOP government based on there record.
The GOP has one candidate running that I would call good, and the rest are just tools bought by the highest bidder and special interests.
I don't think the GOP has a chance at winning anything in 2012, just look at the approval rating of congress.
