Roots of My Party

09/28/07 | by steveg [mail] | Categories: Political

Lately, I have been subjected to an unbridled bashing of my chosen political party. Every problem that can be thought of, from the Iraqi war to the revival of bellbottom jeans has been blamed on the GOP. With ex-expatriate Smiths coming back to depressing old home, I expect some more earfuls of rants.

Folks, the root cause is not one party or the other. The shit has been flying from the fan no matter it was an elephant flipping the switch or and ass. Conservative does not mean republican, as neither does liberal means democrat. Some of the most conservative people I ever met were Southern Dems in North Carolina in the late 70's. Nixon had to deal with a Dem Congress, Carter had a Dem congress, etc. Tammany Hall was Democrat as was the the first Chicago Mayor Daley. Boys and Girls, check out the politicians, not their affliation.

abe lincolnThanks to John Ettorre for posting this Abe Lincoln quote. These are the roots of the Republic how I was brought up. I even played A.L., beard and all, in a school play. It is up to "real" republicans, republicans that hold onto the ideals of the party that will save it and the country. Same goes to democrats. Dems, you need me and if I (like Diogenes)can find a true democrat, I need him.

Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
-President Abraham Lincoln.

Wise up, People. It ain't the party, its the party guests, and they aren't sharing the hors d'oeuvres. If you can find a quote or example of someone that epitomizes the ideals of the democratic party, send it to me.

smith for pleasuredentgotta tell ya that it's no longer good guy dems and bad boy republicans in my book - they're all scum, all spineless immoral lying thieving murdering war-criminals who need to be jailed and sterilized so they don't pass their sins on.

how can you tell if a politician is lying - they're still breathing.
