Screw you, I got mine (that I or my ancestors used the public infrastructure to help acquire)?

I'm not a big fan of gay people (or insert other minority/minorities here)?

I don't want to pay not stinking taxes to help anyone else (or even myself as I'm too short sighted to see the point of taxes in the bigger picture)!?

I ain't got a pot to piss in, but one day when I've made my millions off what I built without using any public infrastructure, I'm not gonna wanna give it all away to the govment in taxes?

Jesus!?

Obama and the Democrats are after my guns!?

Because Socialism!?

Muslims are out to establish their religious laws in 'Merica and make us Muslim, and someone has to stop them (and I totally don't understand why people are opposed to using the Bible as the basis for our laws in 'Merica)!?

I'm against government run health care and other socialisms (but don't touch my Medicare or Social Security!)?

There's only two REAL reasons to be Republican today:

either wealthy sociopath or ignorant/delusional.

It's pretty damn scary when you think about just how many Americans are willing to swallow obvious lies and vote against the best interests of themselves, their country, and world. And you can FORGET about reasoning pretty much any of them out of it-- their faith in The GOP is very similar to religious faith. You might as well try to reason the average Southren Baptist out of Christianity.

Yes, most of the Democratic leadership is corrupt too, but they aren't trying to lock-step the nation into some kind of bankrupt, theocratic third-world hellhole.

Because those Democrats want to take all my money and give it to big-city welfare queens so they can buy $200 sneakers for their 14 kids who sell drugs all day instead of attending school. And don't even get me started on the queers. Bunch of filthy heathens.

"It was because of [Virginia Gov.] Bob McDonnell. I met him at an event, and he was focused on higher education, transportation, smaller government. All the things I'm interested in."


Guess you're very disappointed.

FTA: "My parents taught me individual responsibility. You have to rely on yourself to get you anywhere."

Because democrat's parents taught them to suckle from the government teat? Or did his parents throw him out in the woods as a child and tell him "Survive you pussy, enough of this handholding."

Ridiculous, and no you didn't build that no matter how much work you do on your own. The human species is ill equipped to survive alone. It's a social animal that thrives in groups and builds off of our shared creativity. We have nothing as individuals. We most likely die of exposure or hunger when left to our own bootstrappiness. So while it's fantastic that they believe in accountability for the self, it's also ridiculous to insinuate they are anything without the benefit of a government structure that provides a platform for people to be successful.

[prettysureyourejokingbut]

I'd rather my taxes went up so that every black person in American can use food stamps to buy steaks and Champagne, than to have one more penny of it go to the richest assholes that will move it offshore to avoid paying taxes.

2012-09-02 12:16:49 PM
why I'm not a Republican:

Stumping on abortion as a major platform issue.
Christianity in government

Gimme a call after you've backed away from those two things, no promises but I'll reconsider.

No, it's the truth.

When the reason you're against health care reform is because more people will get insured which will mean longer waits for the doctor, then that's just being a selfish asshole.

Right, because Republican tolerance involves repeated usage of words like Libtard, Marxist, Socialist, Kenyan Muslim Usurper, America Hater, Liberal Scum, etc.

You have no argument there, Vin boy...seriously.
