You are certainly entitled to your own opinion ! Since this is an anonymous forum, I have no reason to lie...what would that prove ? Your post indicates that there is only black and white. I see many shades of grey. Neither Republicans nor Democrats represent all of the views I espouse, so the choice becomes a scale. Which political positions come closest to the ones important to me and which are not. That scale has shifted over the years. If you are satisfied that Republicans represent everything you believe in, by all means vote for them. I will give you a ride to the polls...but your opinions carry no more weight and your vote is no more important than mine.<quoted text>
YOU SAID:"I have changed as well, but I assure you, not as much as my former party has !"LOL
Yes you have changed, that is if you were ever a republican which I doubt. You are one of those Fricken Dem/libs that set on the fence and shout 'I am on your side' and all the while, would stab a person, party, cause, etc. in the back if it was not going your way. Right now in the government, you have everything you wanted yet you still complain. Harry Reid will not let anything pass thru the senate so even though the congress as you would put it 'is in the enemies hands',cannot do anything to help or hurt! Now the Government will continue to grow, the country will go further in debt, more people will lose their jobs, get on welfare, food stamps, disability and unemployment, health care will get worse and cost more, privacy will be a thing of the past, guns will be marginalized, property and the so-called 'property rights' will go out the window, and during the next four years, things will change so Obama can get re-elected again. A perpetual one party gov. that will take care of 'YOU'. People like you are pushing it that way in hopes of finding a 'Utopia'. Over the previous 200+ years it has been tried and failed. With the help of the mainstream media, and a lot of Dem/libs holding high offices in the gov., it will not fail this time. You will get what you want up to a point, THEN the pendulum sill swing the other way and you.......... will shout to the other side of the fence,of course from the top of the fence!!
Just as the silly predictions from radical Democrats during the Bush years predicted that "W" would not yield the presidency after his term, here come rhe radical Republicans predicting a never ending Obama Administration. I called the Dems on that then and I call you on it now. This is not how America works and it never will be.
It is my opinion that the Republican Party will have to change to closer represent 21st century America, or their appeal to voters will continue to diminish. As far as stabbing a "party" in the back, I do not owe my vote to any party, and when they cease to represent a majority of my interests and my values I will withhold my vote and my influence.
