Why are so many GOP leaders being exposed?
I think God is tired of them using his name in vain and coming across as moralists when in actuality they are of their father, the devil. For years, the GOP has paraded as the Christian group. Few if any are real Christians. If you were to take a survey, you would find more non- GOP as sincere Christians. Folk like Huckabee who pretends to be a former pastor but says whatever to whomever. When he was running for president. This man was a notorious liar, which does not rule him out of being a Southern Baptist. When he went to South Carolina to campaign, he began talking about the confederate flag. No one asked him to elaborate on the flag. He said, "If someone tries to tell me what to do with this flag, I will tell them where they can shove it." This is real godly coming from a self proclaimed man of God. This is "White Christianity." It has a form of godliness but denies the power thereof. We have not seen the end of the exposure. I believe the worst is yet to come by some of the most sanctimonious GOP on television and on Capitol Hill. These folk are hate filled narcissists who feel a strong sense of entitlement. The democrats have little to nothing to worry about because the republicans are totally freaking out. Obama should not have a second term but will be given one because his opposition is laughable. How pathetic is it when the best you have is an air headed female who quits in mid-stream. Alaska has less folk that most moderate size cities. She is their queen, their hope for tomorrow. She too praises God in church and lives like the devil outside of it. Remember, if you want to be a GOP simply go to church. It matters not your lifestyle just tell them that you are against gay marriages and abortions. It is okay to screw guys or get screwed by guys until you get caugth. It is also okay to get a woman pregnant then give her money on the side to pay for an abortion. All that matters is that you speak against it in public and keep going to church.
There are true republicans who know full well that I am telling the truth. The deceptionis overwhelming them as party members. Some have since left and thousands will leave. I left, and it was one of the best decision I've made in a while. The "Million scared GOP March" highlighted the hatred and racist ways of the party. I could not believe what I was reading. To say it was not about race but march with signs showing a noose around the neck of a dummy is an oxymoron. Sign after sign said deplorable things. This was expected, so the masses were not shocked.

That was a little harsh, most republicans are not as described .Hypocrites transcend party, ideology and geographical lines.. I am an ex-republican because there was no room for a social moderate/liberal after the family/moral values folks starting making a lot of noise.
Happy to be an unaffiliated voter who doesn't have to bow to the party line.

This is one of the reasons I am an Independent. Both the Democrats and Republicans have many decent and moderate members, but there are enough people in either party doing strange things so that I can't support either party entirely. The only sensible approach is to look at each issue and each candidate individually.

Really?! I am going to tell you something that will most likely make your partisan mind explode! There is corruption on both sides! The Left gets away with it because the mainstream media is nothing more than the propaganda wing of the Democrat party!
Charley Rangel is the chairman of the committee that writes tax law and yet he can't seem to pay his taxes. He forgot that he owned all of that property and was getting millions of dollars a month from it?!
Tim Geithner the Treasury Secretary didn't know that he couldn't deduct his kids summer camps as a business expense?! But he is now in charge of the IRS!
Bill Clinton gets a Lewsinski in the Oval office and it is just sex. A Republican gets caught having sex and it is an offense worthy of losing his seat!
Barney Frank allow a male prostitution business to be run out of his condo by his lover and he is still in politics!
Plastic Nancy ordered 5 private jets at taxpayer expense because some days she couldn't get one, when she and he husband are rich enough to easily afford on one their own! Thank god that the order for the jets got cancelled!
The husband of either Boxer or Fienstein is making millions in government projects given to his company by the committee that his wife is the chairman of!
The stench of your hypocrisy is unbearble and lingers on everything you touch!

Does the fact that there are some "bad" republicans excuse the corruption that is rampant in the democratic party and democrat controlled government? Republicans will get rid of their own offenders, why do the democrats ignore and/or reward their miscreants?

wow this is the longest dumbest with out factual information rant I've ever see in my entire life. I think one thing you should know, and I know this is information kids get in preschool, but 1 or even 100 people don't speak for the group. Of course their are bad eggs. You'd be dumb not to agree with that. But to say an entire organization is corrupt because of them makes you ignorant.
