Liberals: Would You Consider Voting For A Republican?
Let's say that this candidate was a social conservative but could guarantee you a job and could fix social security. Is that enough to earn your vote?
Probably not, because none of the conservative actions have done anything to promote real jobs and they want to privatize and jeopardize social security. I also cannot go along with the current social policies that force medical procedures like transvaginal ultrasounds under the guise of "protecting" women. It is as big government as it gets and this is the party that claims to want less government. They want to legislate women, they don't want to guarantee equal pay for women and they do everything in their power to gut worker's rights to organize and put labels on it like "right to work" states which basically means "right to work for a non-living wage".
I can't stand democrats either though as they are a far cry from the "liberals" they are made out to be. Both of our current parties are bought and paid for by lobbyists and corporate interests and we are all being systematically robbed no matter which loser party we vote for.
That's funny your 2nd paragraph is the exact same thing as mine when he asked the mirror question. =p
So I guess there isn't really hope for national unity after all?
There might be when the whole corporations as people thing is overturned and if we ever get it together enough collectively to overthrow/overhaul our current system in washington - until then, no I'm afraid not & it's unfortunate.
I think we should all vote for whom we think best represents our values and mindset. I would like to see the parties disappear completely and we start voting for the best people instead of a machine.
As far as the question goes it is hard to answer because of the wording. I am a liberal, but also a centrist I believe in meeting in the middle and compromise is the way to come to a solution to any problem. And when I talk to my Republican friends and Family members we agree more than we disagree so I am wondering who the party is really representing?
Since the election of the Shrub (Also my former home state governor. could not stand him then either.)The current people running the Republican Party are so far out of touch with my mindset I doubt I would vote for one.
Also don’t get the whole Conservative Machines double talk really. The people want smaller government but they support every war that’s put on the table. How does that work? Too bad they don’t support our returning Soldiers and all those who served in the Armed forces with the same gusto. And do any of them ever look into the Contractors who are supposed to be the solution to a smaller government?
The countries infrastructure is falling apart and they are trying to figure how their compatriots can cash in on that… The problems with the climate is not of our making it is a Socialist plot as is alternative energy, and anything else that does not generate dollars profit! And lets turn a blind eye to our friends who are responsible for our current job crisis. Heck those profits are still rolling in from overseas what is the problem?
I won’t even go into the Abortion and Women’s issues because, it had gone past controlling reproduction rights, name calling and insulting women seems to be the latest fad in some kind of attempt to rekindle the Kinder, Küche, Kirche motto of days gone by.
They come across to me as mean small minded, bible pounding(not a real Christian among them) bigots and if you don’t tow their line you get the famous “you are either with us or against us” tirade as they point out they are they are Patriots and you are trying to turn this paradise into a den of Socialism...
So I guess the answer is a resounding NO!

How can any American support the Republican Party???They are out of touch with reality and really don't care about the middle class and poor. We can only hope that the Hispanic people will vote for the Democrats and keep a Republican President out of office any time in the near future. Have you...

It appears that modern conservatism, built on ideas of ideas from William F Buckley, Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, Leo Strauss, Russell Kirk, Joseph McCarthy and the like...formed those ideas as a result of the civil rights movement, or rather, their opposition to the civil rights movement....

Stay on message. The issue is the Federal Government co-opting 17% of the economy. The issue is personal freedoms eroding. Let them whine about a few vocal people at town hall meetings. Stay on message.
