Because it goes both ways...

I'm a Republican and I'm not ashamed to say so. It seems that affiliating yourself with either party these days will make you subject to being called names, questioning your intelligence, and so on. This needs to just stop.

We have been a military family for 16 years, and if you research it, the majority of servicemembers vote Republican. Why? Because it's the best for our way of life. I believe in a woman's right to choose and gay marriage. But if by voting Republican makes it better for myself and my family, the obvious choice is clear. I have made sacrifices for my family, large and small, including leaving a job I loved after 10 years because it was best for my family.

I read a comment months ago that said all Republicans are idiots. Nice blanket statement there, twatwaffle. This is one of the most ignorant comments I've ever seen. They might have well said a person is wrong for what color skin they have what and what sex they are. It's this sort of political crap that really boils my blood. Here's a mirror, now go fuck yourself. (I know, I have a bad potty mouth, get off my fucking back, I'll try harder, okay?)

By the time November rolls around, I think most of us are going to be annoyed to high heaven by each other. Sorry, but a million postings of Democratic leanings are not going to sway me. I am adamant about keeping an open mind in every situation, and trying to see both sides of something. It seems most people aren't willing to do this. Your loss, bud. Do some soul-searching, think about what your morals and convictions are, not everyone else's, or your parents, or your significant other. Think for yourself.

That's my opinion. If you don't like it, here's your mirror.

Erin, I agree that both parties sling mud way too often. As a democrat I often receive the occasional hateful comment from the military members around me due to the majority of them being republican. Neither party is more or less intelligent, only differing in position on topic. It seems that partisanship is a real dividing point in some circles, and it shouldn't be. . . we are all AMERICAN. Keep blogging, it keeps us honest and real Lady!!!
