soapbox

I know quite a few Republicans and I’m related to more than I care to count. Granted, I don’t have a ton of Republican friends. With gay rights being one of the polarized issues dividing the two parties, I’m obviously not too keen on snuggling up to those who want to treat me as a second class citizen in my own damn country.

Now with that said, I know there are some moderate Republicans out there. I know there are some that just truly believe in fiscal responsibility (although how you supported GWB and that Congress I’ll never understand?!?) and less government. I also know there are members of this party who are intelligent and truly educated on the issues at hand. I know there are decent human beings that are members of the Republican Party.

I am now just praying that those people, you know the ones with at least half a brain and some common decency, stand up and take back their party from the hate-mongering yokels that are currently leading them down this dark and sinister path they are on.

The latest from Mrs. Palin:



She posted this map on her Facebook page showing cross hairs set on the districts where Democrats who voted for the health care bill hailed.

And then sent out this little Tweet:

"Commonsense Conservatives & lovers of America: “Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!” Pls see my Facebook page"

All I can say is...WOW!

Really?? This is someone who is leading your party! Are you really okay with this blatant call for violence towards those who you disagree with on healthcare???

I don't care what political party you belong to- this is dead wrong.

Shame on you Sarah Palin and shame on anyone who condones her and her insanely irresponsible actions.

man, i heard about this and was flabbergasted. i am finding it more and more difficult to see the Repus as anything more than the party of hate, violence, ignorance, and racism. The moderates who are NOT this way are most culpable because they have allowed the crazy right to take over without a fight. It's like watching a train wreck!

I know! I'm livid...if you couldn't tell ;)

This political party is quickly turning into a domestic terrorist organization.

I feel like we're reverting as a country and am just waiting for American kids to start dragging their knuckles on the ground!
