The GOP has finally gone beyond the reach of me ever supporting it again in my lifetime. With them backing the non-conservative, traitorous John McCain to another potential 6 years of abusing our country and leaving it vulnerable to a continued invasion, I can no longer support anything that the GOP does. I already voiced my many, many reasons why McCain is a putrid liar. If that is the kind of "leader" the RNC and GOP supports then there is no reason to support them.
To all of you ignorant Tea Party people out there who are continuing to think that you can somehow co-opt the GOP and turn it in the right direction, John McCain is your answer from the Republican National Committee and the top echelons of this corrupt and unfixable party. Their continued support of candidates like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins is an abomination.
As for the Tea Party movement, it has been wholly co-opted by the likes of Dick Armey, a fiercely pro-amnesty for illegal aliens proponent who will never change his ways. And the Tea Partiers stand at the sidelines as he speaks for them. They are the equivalent of the "moderate Muslims" who stand by and do nothing while the extremists take over their "religion". Let Armey lead you down into the doldrums of the continued bottomless cesspool that is our political system - for it will never right itself. You sheep out there who are supporting the parties and the Armey backed Tea Party - being steered by FreedomWorks - should be disgusted with yourselves. You should have denounced Armey from day one, yet you did nothing as those of us who see what he truly is have been shouting it for more than a year. I see no action from any of you as he gallivants around the country talking for you. Silence is acceptance.
At one point I thought I would go independent for years and maybe the Republicans would turn themselves around and see the light, but that is not happening and it is not going to happen. There is no going back and I will never support the Republicans or the GOP again. The shortest straw has been pulled and placed on the camel's back that is our country. I urge you to permanently declare your separation from the GOP - for life.
For those who admit that there is no difference between the two, but supporting a third party is "a wasted vote", you have no integrity or character in my eyes. To continue supporting something that you say is broken is appalling and you should really rethink this "strategy" of yours. John McCain is what you get and what you deserve. He is your just reward for your stance.
I will now actively work against the GOP in any manner that I can. I will actively work against the Democrats in any way that I can. As a matter of fact at this point I am seriously thinking of supporting Democrats. I will scream from the mountaintops the pure disgust that both parties have become and convince anyone I can to turn against them. I am of the mind that we need more Democrats in power, more progressives, more John McCains to leave our borders wide open and to allow our citizens to continue to be abused. For what else will wake them up but mass raping, pillaging and murderous attacks?
Let us drive this country into the sewer so that the coming revolution will hasten to our doorstep. Let our financial systems, capitalism, agriculture and industry fall off the cliff of production and into the gully of destruction. I await its coming with a controlled glee because it now reveals itself as the only potential chance for "We The People" to ever truly have our country back.
And you Gloria are the reason Obama is president by continuing to support those who would actually push people like McCain and back him as a presidential candidate. The funny thing is the most vile comments I have ever seen come not from those who support illegal aliens - who actually try to destroy the lives of those who oppose it by dubbing them racists - but from Republican sheep who try to blame all the failings of the GOP on those who have realized that they are a disgusting blight in the politics of this country right along with the Democrats.
As for your assertion that McCain was the single and sole reason for people turning on the elitist Republicans (including myself) - try and keep up. This has been going on for more than a decade. Go read the article again.
Feel free to attack those of us who have been lifelong Republicans and have realized that they have lost their way and stand for nothing. Their recent "pledge" is full of the same BS that Obama was pushing to get elected; a bunch of vague statements with no firm stance. If you want to continue to believe such tripe feel free to, but many have had enough.
It just continues to show that this country will never recover because people like yourself are too blind to open your damn eyes and take a look around and see the fact that they are lying to you repeatedly and then do nothing once in power but to continue the same tired and country destroying actions.
I throw your statement back at you...
how sad is that?
