Confession: Conservatives irritate me

Especially around election time.  The whole, "Anyone but Obama" and "Well why doesn't Super Obama wave his magic wand and change everything like he told you he would with his hopey changey speechs".

Ok really people, Repubicans are ruining this country.  Wake up and smell the roses.  The war on women, 2 unfunded wars, classism, ruling with the Bible and "god", making this country a "Christian" nation, and tearing the foundation of this country up because they rule with fear, emotions and a moral obligation to make life a living hell for liberals (just to name a few).

Why can't people stop voting using their emotions and fear based rhetoric and actually look in a damn history book and see what conservatism is doing?  Educate yourself damn it!

 

Sorry vent over.

I'm a Democrat. I have to "hide" certain people on Facebook during election season to preserve our friendships. This whole birth control debacle is especially infuriating.

It's just like when Bush/Kerry were running and it was "anyone but Bush". Few I heard that from had a real reason to vote for Kerry other than the fact he wasn't Bush. I don't get involved in politics, but damn, have a reason for your vote.

I think politicians in general are ruining this country. It doesn't matter what side they sit on.

Except the original Republican party is nowhere close to how it is today.  The current Republican party is moreso a "conservative" party but that is not how it originally was.  Comparing Republicans now to Republicans 100 years ago is comparing apples to oranges.
