I’ve been a registered Republican from day one. I was always very proud to be a Republican, because I believed that party best shared the same ideology as I with free economy, faith based and conservative values. Of course the greatest point in my life of being a Republican was when I got to help put Ronald Reagan into the White House…twice! Now those are the good ole days.
Take a look at what the GOP has now turned into. Those we’ve placed in DC stand up for no one except their own self serving interest. They’re overpaid and their pension plan is beyond ridiculous. Hell, no wonder people want to be a politician. You don’t have to do anything, you get more vacations than Bill Gates can afford…well…we pay for their vacations and you get to determine your own work hours and salary. Now that doesn’t suck! Let’s quickly examine two of the most powerful Republicans in office; Mitch McConnell and John Boehner.
What has the long time self proclaimed conservative Mitch McConnell done for us lately? Well, he stated that Obama is eligible to be president. He voted with the Democrats for that atrocious bill that allows Obama to take away even more of our constitutional rights. He voted with the Democrats to start allowing the Federal Government to start funding abortion…yeah; he really sounds conservative to me.
John Boehner, well, what can I say…useless. He’s personally blocked many attempts by the Republicans that have the majority in the House from passing bills to put Obama in the hot seat. He was nice enough to meet with Obama the other day (after Obama got in his round of golf of course) to discuss releasing some of our oil reserves to help ease the price of gas at the pumps. After they met the only thing Boehner had to say was, “President Obama does not think it is a good idea.” WTH? You don’t have an opinion yourself Boehner? No he doesn’t. He’s now just a mouth piece for Obama.
The GOP has now turned into the “Gravy On-top Party” and they just keep pouring it onto themselves and to hell with all of us normal folks. You can’t even tell the difference anymore between the GOP and the Jackass party. This is a very sad, angry and disgusting time for me.
I’ve made the personal choice to change party affiliations and register as an Independent. I’m not leaving the GOP; they left me! I love Elephants, but not when they stomp around DC with the opinion they are of more importance than the people that voted them into office. So I shall now remove this stain from myself that now has a stench to it I can no longer stand to smell. Good bye GOP. You now think differently than I and I have no use for you anymore…
