									What happened to my grandfathers GOP?My whole life I was raise around
republican elders, my grandfathers, dad, etc. etc. I have been interested
in politics from an early age, even remember the election of ford and
carter (date). The people in my life were not hard core republicans, more
like moderates, even a few blue dogs. They rarely talked about abortion,
gay rights, or prohibition of marijuana. They believed in a strong
military, but not being cops for the world, and personal sacrifice if we
did go to war. They believed government was for the people, but not to
make people dependent. My grandfather was an educator Principle and
always said the feds should stay out of education, my dad was a police
officer, liked the dems on gun control, but believed in the 2nd
amendment, just didn't think you really need an assault weapon unless you
military or law enforcement. My nana had her own beauty salon, her father
was a local republican judge, grew up going to many GOP events. But still
found time to give to charity, and understand the dems views, and
sometimes agreed. She also thought the government had its place but, not
in her home. And now fast forward to present day, I'm a 44 year old white
male who has owed a business for 11 years. I have voted in local
elections 6 times, and two senate elections and three presidential
elections. And yes I have voted for two for two dems one being Jim web,
and the other bill Clinton. So what happened? I can honestly say I don't
know the GOP anymore, who they are, not the same party my grandparents
voted for. I have looked at all candidates running for 2012, and the only
ones who are honest, and true republicans, don't have a snow ball's
chance in hell of winning. And why, cause all the losers get all the
attention. And let me say this so where clear, gw was the worst president
of all time, he was more or a dem than any president day rep. president,
no child left behind, two wars and didn't pay for them cut vet benefits,
gave us the so called patriot act, and the man was a moron, couldn't
sting together two sentences, and yes I voted for him, the first time.
Wow never vote for a guy I'd like to drink a beer with again. Let's look
at the candidates we have now:Mitt (Willard) Romney, are you kidding me,
the front runner, a millionaire who made his wealth from chopping up
companies and selling the parts overseas. The man who said he was against
Obama care, but that's who Obama modeled it after, almost word for word,
oh by the way it worked, just saying. The man who literal said
"corporations are people WHAT? I'm for a woman's right, no I'm against it
now, no I'm for it, flip flopper from hell. Oh and the one big reason
Romney won't win, one word "Mormon" Herman Cain. Ok we can all admit that
we most likely won't have another African American president. But despite
all that, Cain has never had any political experience. And maybe that's a
good thing,,, but in the end people won vote for a guy who hasn't even
been a mayor of a small town. 999, sounds good at first, then you realize
it will hit the poor and middle class like a ton of bricks. And small
business will lose all of their tax breaks with 999, which means a
construction owner buying a new truck, who normally would be able to take
30% of in taxes, will now have to pay about $2,000 more. Now I'm going to
confuse you, I love Herman Cain, Why? Because he's the first politician
in a long time that speaks the truth, kind of, he's not interested in
becoming President, he's just selling his book, true business man.
Michelle Bachman. Ok where do I start, this woman don't have a clue, I
sure as hell don't someone who truly thinks carbon dioxide, is not
harmful, CO2 is toxic in higher concentrations: 1% (10,000 ppm) will make
some people feel drowsy.[7] Concentrations of 7% to 10% cause dizziness,
headache, visual and hearing dysfunction and unconsciousness within a few
minutes to an hour.[8] Wikipedia• 5. ''Carbon dioxide is portrayed as
harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows
that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.'' True quote from Bachman.Newt
Gingrich Mr. Family Values is amazingly similar to Bill Clinton - both
are pot smoking, draft-dodging adulterers from poor Southern families.
Newt Gingrich's Skeleton Closet Last time I checked Newt's own party
kicked him out for writing bad checks. He's a has been. Come on GOP, we
can do better. Rick Perry. Can you say George Bush? Texas Governor can't
speak past a first grade level, thinks that drilling for oil, will solve
all are problems. Please not again. Perry graduated in 1972 with a
Bachelor of Science degree in animal science with a 2.5 GPA.[11] was
elected senior class social secretary, and was also elected as one of
A&M's five yell leaders ,a male cheerleaders just like old G.W).[10]
Perry graduated in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science degree in animal
science with a 2.5 GPA.[11] In 1993, Perry, while serving as Texas
agriculture commissioner, expressed support for the Clinton health care
reform proposal, describing it as "most commendable." Texas ranks next-
to-last among states in terms of affordability of health insurance.[52In
February 2007, Perry issued an executive order mandating that Texas girls
receive the HPV vaccine, which protects against some strains of the human
papilloma virus, a contributing factor to some forms of cervical
cancer.[59] Following the move, news outlets reported various apparent
financial connections between Perry and the vaccine's manufacturer,
Merck. Enough Said!!!Ron Paul. Well, I really like Ron Paul, but he's
like Ross Perot, people think he's crazy, and he will never will make the
cut. Paul proposed reducing the federal workforce by 10 percent, slashing
congressional pay and bringing down the president's salary to $39,336 ,
hell yes. He wants to get rid of the Department of Education, Commerce,
and Interior. He wants to bring All our troops home, and stay out of
other countries BS. But for every good idea he has, he's also got a nutty
one. For instance, Paul says he would cut all funding for the Justice
Department's "Community Oriented Policing Services" (COPS) program, which
provides grants to state and local law enforcement agencies to hire and
train officers. And, abolish the Transportation Security Administration,
leaving security at airports and other transportation systems up to the
private sector. Sorry Mr. Paul I would vote for you, but Not too many
others will. I was in high school during the Reagan years, and those were
good times. I felt comfortable, proud, and had money in my pocket. Reagan
didn't do everything right, but he sure made you fell American. He was a
strong and confident President, but he was also a mediator. He and James
"Tip" O'Neill would sit in the west wing and drink a few, and hammer out
some good policies for the good of the country. Here's my thought, we
need some like Reagan, Eisenhower, or FDR, but instead, we get puppets.
Read this bio on Reagan and remember who we are.Ronald Wilson Reagan
(/ˈreɪɡən/; February 6, 1911 - June 5, 2004) was the 40th President
of the United States (1981-1989), the 33rd Governor of California (1967-
1975) and, prior to that, a radio, film and television actor. Reagan
served as president of the Screen Actors Guild, and later spokesman for
General Electric; his start in politics occurred during his work for GE.
Originally a member of the Democratic Party, he began to support
Republican Party candidates in the early 1950s and eventually switched to
the Republican Party in 1962. After delivering a rousing speech in
support of Barry Goldwater's presidential candidacy in 1964, he was
persuaded to seek the California governorship,Reagan began his political
career as a liberal Democrat, admirer of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and an
active supporter of New Deal policies. In the early 1950s, as his
relationship with Republican actress Nancy Davis grew,[52][53] he shifted
to the right and, while remaining a Democrat, endorsed the presidential
candidacies of Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952 and 1956 as well as Richard
Nixon in 1960.[54] In August of that year Reagan formally switched to the
Republican Party, stating, "I didn't leave the Democratic Party. The
party left me."[60]And from the words of Ronny, I didn't leave the
Republican Party, the Republican Party left me. Dwight Eisenhower, 34th
President of the United States (1953-1961) Eisenhower is often ranked as
one of the top ten U.S. Presidents. He was the last President who was
born in the 19th century.
