I miss the time when Democrats and Republicans worked together in Congress, back when I was a kid. Now the "our way, or no way" attitude of the Republican party is why I had to leave it.

its a shame modern conservatism isn't true fiscal conservatism. its instead become a perversion or corruption, neoliberal doctrine, religious fundamentalism and xenophobia. This applies to virtually any nation western or not.

What also makes me sad is the fact that the Tea Party was formed around Ron Paul as a libertarian movement (socially liberal, like Democrats, economically conservative, like Republicans, supporting social freedoms like gay marriage, pro-choice even though Ron Paul wasn't, legal marijuana, reducing prison populations etc), but instead was hijacked by the hyperconservative neocon nutjobs to become a faction of racists, bigots, and supporters of draconian social policies from the era of the Spanish Inquisition. Disgusting.

It's sad when you have to go to a fictional tv show to get real news.

this really hit home for me....... I identify as a republican and was amazed when conservative radicals would identify themselves also as republicans....... lets just have them form another completely different political party.. so we can counter balance the crazy radical communists... keeping in mind both are insane radical groups .

My 86 year old aunt could not vote either and she is white, she didn't have a birth certificate because she was born at home and the law says that if you don't have a birth certificate you can't get an ID. My father was a Korean war POW and he could not vote in 2012 either because while he had lots of picture ID but they would not take any of it because none of it had an expiration date, not even his VA card. We tried to get him one but there were piles of forms to fill out and each office took their sweet time about processing the forms and sending them back, they kept dicking around and he died before all of that paperwork was processed. AND that is what happens when republicans rule a state.

If Republican are the like him, I have no problem, since we all share the same goal to do what's best for America.
