Well said.

I will quibble about one point though, the GOP now is a revolutionary party. A party that more closely resembles the Bolsheviks or Jacobins than anything else.

They intend to destroy all the things that make America great; freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly. They intend to remake America into a authoritarian state where only 'proper' people get any say in how the country is run.

That is revolution in my book.

Absolutely fantastic article. I would love to see more of this in the pages. Don't get me wrong, I love people linking to articles that I might not see otherwise. I would just like to see more stories of personal experience. Once again, great piece.

Well put. Good read.

The democrats may want my money, but the republicans want my soul. The republicans can piss off.

Nothing more I can add here but to echo everyone else. Great article!

Exactly. It's why I could never call myself Republican.

I tried doing the whole "vote for the person, not the party" thing for a while, and have cast a few (R) ballots in the past at the local and state level, but never again, especially after the State Board of Education fiasco here in Texas.

The Dems might well suck as a political party. They have an uncanny knack for pissing away a sure victory, and of letting the GOP set the tone and the agenda for everything they do. Still, I'd rather take my chances voting for them rather than giving tacit support for a socon platform that I consider anathema.

Wow, that sounds like it's been building up for quite a while. Kudos to you for taking a stand based on things that are not only important to your well-being, but also to that of your fellow Americans.

Interesting.

One of the readers at LGF had a very wonderful article/diary/blog over there and I registered to try and thank him for it and get permission to publish it here. Alas for some reason my confirmation email for my registration seems to have been lost in the mail.

I saw that nic go by when it was registered. "Gangster Octopus" can ask for the confirmation to be re-sent.

I think I just found my new bumper sticker. That's it, in a nutshell.

re: #10 passingby

Way cool. Thanks for the heads-up. I just zipped over to Kos and took a gander.

Of course, now I see all my typos. Ah well.

I stopped voting Republican about the same time as Charles did, and for roughly the same reasons as this poster.

I found myself forced to choose between two equally important values to me: liberal social issues versus fiscal conservative ones.

I had to go for the party that had a stronger record on the first, than the party who had a laughably disingenuous and self-contradictory record on the second.

So what part of the Republican agenda did you ever support?
