Those are FACTS….. So go ahead now all you avid far right hawks, post your comments on how un-American I am because I stated facts. Give me the thumbs down. Or better yet come back with a statement that refutes those facts that have no evidence of truth. Swift Boat anyone?
Are all republicans cowardly and un-American…of course not. I myself have voted both republican and democrat, because I look at the issues and vote accordingly. It’s called thinking and researching. I don’t vote a certain way because it’s republican or democrat.
But this current administration has not followed republican values, has embarrassed America, has hurt America, has trampled the Constitution, has lied to it’s people, spied on it’s people and is well on the way to destroying our economy. Is it the republican party and republican values that have done that?....... NO!!! it’s the current republican administration. I would have a lot more respect for someone that would say “I’m a Republican, I’m proud to be a Republican and I support the republican values, but the current Presidency was a mistake, just like so many other electorial mistakes that have been made” But instead what the CURRENT far right spews is mindless, factless, hateful and shameful gibberish, so absent of any fact or honesty that they will attack Veterans that served with valor during wartime, even one of their own party. Is there even a word for that type of dishonor?
Republicans will stand a chance if they are true to republican values.
