OK, first let me agree that George W. Bush is the worst president since Nixon, and the two of them are clearly the worst in my lifetime (although Lyndon Johnson was right up there).
However, that doesn't mean that ALL Republicans are evil, any more than it suggests that ALL Democrats are icons of fiscal restraint. In recent history, Democrat-controlled Congresses have a terrible record of over-spending and creating massive deficits. The Clinton era was better, but a large part of that resulted from the restraint that Newt Gingrich and the Congress showed at that time. Frankly, I think there's a great advantage to having a different party in Congress than the President, because the disagreement serves as a deterrant to overspending.
By the way, it is horrific for you to damn people to hell, regardless of how you feel about their politics. I'm no great fan of Newt Gingrich either, but I know he'd be better than the current president, and better than John Kerry would have been too. Not passing budgets is one way that the spending was kept under control. If you could see past your partisan bias, you'd realize that.
Finally, if you've ever lived in a one-party state, you'd realize how dangerous it is to have the Democrats control everything. You'll be amazed how much corruption will develop and how little care will be paid to real solutions. Divided government is a good thing.
Yes, we're all thrilled that it is the end of the Bush regime. But get some perspective. Otherwise, you'll be living under a new regime...one which never bothered to dismantle all the centralized powers this government gained for the presidency.
Meanwhile, please stop insulting people who you don't agree with. There's nothing to be gained from invective.
Finally, you need to be aware that not everyone who is registered as a Republican believes in what the president is doing. Don't attack us if we try to regain control of our party from these neo-con loons. We're trying to make a change, just like you are. But if you're so closed-minded that you can't even speak to someone, just because they have a "R" by their name, then you're really worthless to the cause of change. I'm supporting real change WITHIN the Republican party. If we can't get that, then perhaps I won't be voting Republican in the general election. But until we get to that point, it is premature to condemn all Republicans. Are you aware that many Democrats have voted to support the President, while many Republicans have voted NOT to? So, try to be a little more circumspect in your criticism.
