Something I've never done before

I'm one of those people that is called "brand loyal". I have only one gas card. I have the same insurance I've had since I started driving. I was raised in a Republican household and I vote Republican. And if I don't vote Republican, then I vote Independent. In the early 90's I couldn't bring myself to vote "the enemy", so I went half-way and voted for Perot.....twice.

This time, I went all out and voted Democrat. I am so angry with the party and I had no other recourse. That was it. That was all I knew to do. And now I discover, I'm not alone. There are other loyal Republicans who feel as I do that the party is letting them down.

My issue is not so much with the war on Iraq as much as it is women's issues and a lack of tolerance overall for people who see things differently. I sincerely think that the Republican party is just a bunch of white, self-righteous, christian men who believe they know what's better for us than we do. I'm sick of it. Really, I am.

The Republicans think they are the Party of God. Which in Arabic is pronounced "Hezbollah"...

Hmmm.... can there be more than one Hezbollah? Can two Hezbollah be enemies of one another?

Which Hezbollah is right? Oh, nevermind, I know....the one with the most money.

Sometimes I think the "parties" would like to think that people are either one or the other. But I think most people really vote for the candidate. Sure, you're aligned with one party normally because you generally believe in their party lines. But if somebody on the other side is more in line with your perspective, it's who you should vote for. Especially when the person on the other side is running against someone on your side who's a total prick.
