I find myself shaking my head in shame every time a "republican" and I use that word meaning "is in the party" opens his mouth these days.
My father hates the president, but these days I can notice not so much his dislike wavering, as his support for all the asinine things the republican party is pulling and saying. I think he's just as sick as I am of trying to find a way to justify their statements in logical terms.
Diffrence is he was raised in a conservitive farm family, and in the first generation to get a high school diploma, and while I have the same values. I do not have ANYTHING to wax noglasticly about, and am therefore going to call bullshit bullshit, no matter what party says it.
Basicly my father is old guard republican, and ever since bush I've gone independent, the party and it's ideals left me and so many others in the dust over those eight years.
I also remember people on the TV going on about "we're winning, life is grand" and I'm looking around and think "it's not"
I've been voting mostly democrat ever since.
