75. I think I can do this

See I was a Republican until 2000. As a matter of fact - my entire family except myself are Republicans. I grew up hearing stories about Clinton and how much of an ass he was. My father studied for the bar with him and HATED him. Still does.

I attended Reagan's campaign speech here in AR when I was a boy. I attended Bush Sr.'s inauguration in Washington D.C. as a guest of my father's friend John Paul Hammerschmidt. I watched it from some reception room in the Capitol building sitting next to Senator Paul Simon as he groaned and bitched.

I shook Bush Jr.'s hand in Austin when he appointed my father's friend to Railroad Commissioner of that state...and I can assure you that the rumors of his handshake are quite true. He stared at me like I was some kind of freak. I'll never forget that.

So why did I switch? Two things - one, they no longer seemed to be the party of fiscal responsibility and I knew - I knew that when they nominated that freak in 1999, that things were not right and that I had been very, very wrong. The years proved me right, of course. He was the worst president we have ever had.

Then I got married in 2004. My then wife was diagnosed with Bipolar II and rapidly fell apart. We could not afford psychiatrists bills at the time as we were on one income as she tried desperately to finish her schooling. And all the while, I saw how the Republicans pissed on the common man. Pissed on people's health and claimed patriotism and national unity against the terrorists. Meanwhile, my wife suffered - and in the end, without treatment, we made the decision to get a divorce so that she could go to Massachusetts, live with a friend, and get the help she needed. With us being married, they would have denied her coverage.

By then, her condition over the years, without the treatment she needed, had eroded our relationship so badly that there was no going back.

So you see, I hate them. I'll hate them until the day I die. I can also think, act, and talk like them. Wooo - this should be good fun. I'm going to Zartan them. I wonder what I will do?
