I call myself a Republican because I am one. I believe in market solutions and common sense realities and the necessity to defend ourselves against a dangerous world. The problem is now I have to be homophobic. I have to count the number of times people go to church. I have to deny facts and think scientific research is a long con. I have to think poor people are getting a sweet ride and I have to have such a stunning inferiority complex that I fear education and intellect… in the 21st century. But most of all the biggest new requirement, really the only requirement, is that I have to hate democrats.
I’m a registered Republican* and I’m ashamed of that sometimes but I really shouldn’t have to be? like I am allowed to have political opinions? except a minority bunch of assholes ruin it for everyone else and every time their dumb mouths open it gets worse and everyone hates everyone else more and then all of a sudden it’s like I’ve joined the dark side and started strangling kittens.
this is such an important thing and if we could somehow make it better maybe we’d be able to make a lot of things better for a lot of people
* that said, I did not vote for romney ok
I feel this way…as a democrat. >:/
