I changed years ago because the party was changing. The way the polls are going, many more will change.
Line from a song I wrote, to the tune of "G-D Bless America."
From his right ear, to his left ear,
and with nothing in-between.
I'm not a member of any political party and don't buy into generalizations -good or bad- about them.
Is this meant to upset people? It's like: "why are you xxreligion? Don't you know that if you are you're a vapid idiot?"
Totally antagonistic. *tsk tsk*
Asking why is antagonistic? I'm sure reporters think like that.
No, merely asking why is not in itself antagonistic. However, going on to quote the song which implies that Dems are brainless IS. S'cool with me, just pointing out.
I am independent but voted democrat because of the people who put George Bush into office for eight years. Funny, these same people want a democrat to clean up the mess they voted for.
Never was a democrat or a republican. I believe in eliminating much of government and privatizing it since our government can't seem to regulate their spending and has drove us into to debt harder than ever with the new "Change"
Maybe I should write one.
Why are you affiliated to ANY political party ?
Why are you still a republican ?
I am not affiliated to either party, I HATE politics, but I must say. It was the former Republican President who has created much of the current debt by putting us into a pointless war which has not only cost us money but thousands of lives. And sure the current President has added to it, but money has to be spent to recover doesn't it ?
seems like the economy is slowly rebounding as well... hmmmm
I vote for the candidate I think is best for America. Bush had a higher approval rating at this time in his Presidency. Bush did lose control of thins his last year, that killed his legacy. Before that our economy and unemployment were great.
Bush lost control of things in his last year? Um, I had better not touch that one. I'll just let it stand alone and bask in its own glory...
Apparently, Bush supporters do not remember him denying we were heading for a recession or depression long before leaving office. Not surprising, they also don't remember him saying the oil would pay for the war in Iraq, or Osama bin Laden could run but he could not hide. In fact, Bush supporters suffer from memory loss about his entire presidency. Were we not better off economically before Bush was elected?
Apparently, it was all a dream...the WMD's, the "cakewalk," the (scuse me while a throw up a teensy bit) Patriot Act, the "don't question what my administration does.." crap, the assault on protected wildlands, the "persons of interest" being held with no formal charges, the torture (or not, depending on which dictionary you use), the scandals and corruption attached to nearly every one of GW's buddies, the redacting of half of the information in the 9/11 Commission's report, shall I go on? Guess it doesn't matter since apparently none of that stuff happened. Or at least it was way better than all of the horrible things Obama has managed to do in a few months....which are...?
Don't give me WMD! Four countries had the same info. The best support for Bush on WMD's was Saddam Hussain saying he had them.
Obama's "transparency" has Congress voting on bills they know nothing about. I'll bet you enjoy 24, beat the hell out of them, Jack! No torture, unless you're a puppy. Some of these guys at Gitmo never had it so good. No cold weather, 3 meals a day, bible, prayer rug, TV, medical, dental, soccer, walks in the sun light, throwing urine and feces on the infidel guards and more. Obama was going to close Gitmo, until he realized no one wanted the people including people in the US. They must represent NIMBY!
Obama is trying to change everything about America. I told you he follow's the teachings of Saul Alinsky. A self professed COMMUNIST!
I said "Bush supporters" have memory loss. Let's not forget the corruption of the Justice Department by Bush appointees. This is still being investigated by the way with Cheney seemingly implicated in the whole mess. (surprise, surprise)
If you like we can add up all of these scandals and keep a running count on both. I can kind of understand people voting for Bush the first time, but the second time, no excuse.
Every President has memory loses. Obama is having them very early in his term. Didn't Obama say; "unemployment won't get above 8%, Green Energy will create 300,000 new jobs" and more. George Herbert Walker Bush; read my lips, no new taxes.
Bush wasn't great. I thought he would be if he turned around the middle east, he didn't.
all you 'democrats' make sense
careful roobee, you make a lot. u watch u e-mail
Your jumping on Obama who hasn't even been in Office for a full year ? and is actually doing a good job on a lot of levels (yea some things actually take time)
and can we at least agree that Bush was a major &%#^ up ?
I think one of your statements is great when you wrote "Bush said oil would pay for the war"
exactly, we went to war for oil...nothing else. OHHHH yea those weapons of mass destruction =P ?
either way I do respect everyone's political opinions and it is fun to have decent arguments. I think everyone on hubpages is generally easy to discuss any issue with and that's why I love this place. Nobody really gets angry...
Ok, how long before it's ok to "jump on" him?
Quadrupling Bush's deficit is a good job?
How many times were we attacked after 9/11? Oh, yeah. Zero.
And Obama said taxing the rich would pay for health care.
It is fun, I agree!

In light of the preparations for the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, past conversations with conservatives have come to mind.They told me that Democrats went away from them after Kennedy. Was it LBJ's Great Society, Medicare or Civil Rights...

I am not an American, but what goes on in the USA is important to the world.Lincoln was a Republican and freed the slaves. One would expect black Americans to generally vote Republican. But they don't.How did this come about?

Are You A Democrat, Republican Or A Independent If So Explain Why?
by Amy Magness Whatley 5 years ago
Okay, this may start a war, but I am truly curious- especially with the "why" portion of the question...You are being shipped to a remote, deserted island. You must choose one person to go along with you, but all you know about him or her is their political affiliate. Only three parties...

I'm curious. Why do you affiliate yourself with a particular Party, especially with being a Democrat or Republican?
by American View 6 years ago
I find it interesting when Democrats say the only reason people will vote for Romney is because he is a Republican. They chastise the people on the right who are loyal to their party. They cannot see that people will not vote for Obama because he is doing a lousy job. OF course it is Ok for them to...
