15. Republican politicians? I can't think of any. But I personally know a few people
who are Republicans for reasons I can't begin to understand. They may be confused, stubborn, naive, one-issue voters, etc. They may even be hypocritical. But they're not hateful disgusting assholes.

One friend of mine is a talented artist, married to an artist, lives in one of the most liberal suburbs of Chicago, has a gay brother (with a partner and children) to whom she is very close, is really into natural foods and natural medicine, does yoga, etc. Everything about her would suggest that she's a total lefty, yet I found out the hard way that she's a Republican. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. She's a lovely person and I like her a lot but we can't discuss politics. If the Bush years didn't change her mind, nothing will.

35. Odd! Why does she claim to be a Republican? Is there any reason to believe she is? nt

36. She definitely is. Believe me, I found out the hard way and so did everyone we
worked with because it was an art department full of liberal artists. We've speculated but have no idea why. I *think* she came from a military family and I know she's religious, not that either quality makes one a Republican. I truly don't understand it. If you knew her, you'd be just as perplexed.

38. My only guess is that she's a one-issue voter.
Which I find sad.

9. A reflection of my good judgement anyway. We tend to be much too kind and respectful of those
Edited on Sun Mar-08-09 08:13 AM by old mark
scum here, and I fail to see the reason for it. The GOPs are the lowest form of trash walking upright, and the few that remain are getting worst by the day.

10. Your comments are simple bigotry. And the only people who equate bigotry with good judgment are...
bigots.

13. People chose that idealogy
Its hardly bigotry to call someone out for choosing to be part of a party that has destroyed the country.

22. That is so fucking stupid on so many levels
How does someone chose to be African American, Mexican, Gay, etc.

I know I chose to be a democrat when I filled out my voter registration. You can dislike someone over their political idealogy and its not bigotry.

25. Oh, shit. You don't know the meaning of the word bigotry.
Seriously. Look it up. And when you've taken this step in your education, try out a little maturity. It's not too late.

28. Nope the definition states without a thought
Seeing I grew up in a Repubican household, I've given those set of beliefs quite alot of thought.

30. Your problem is obvious. Anyone who would make such comments about their own flesh and blood...
... has issues beyond this discussion board.

Good luck.

Edited on Sun Mar-08-09 11:36 AM by AllentownJake
but the man didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground politically. It makes you mature to be able to say your flesh and blood is deeply flawed and decide not to be a part of their set of beliefs. But hey I could be wrong and I should get my politics from Bill O'reilley and Sean Hannity everynight and tell my son when I have them that he is becoming a socialist.

16. Wrong.
Edited on Sun Mar-08-09 10:28 AM by Baikonour
They're all, at the very best, willfully ignorant people. Ignorance should not be tolerated, especially in today's global climate. At the worst, they are xenophobic, hateful and INCREDIBLY stupid people with ZERO grasp on history, science or economics.

The republican party needs to die, and a new party that is based in the world of FACT needs to emerge in its place.
