If I had to sum up the message from the Republican Convention, then I would sum it up like this: the Republicans — unlike those Democrats — do not represent the elite, are first and foremost for the country, believe in smaller government and less taxes, support less spending, and were not the party of President George W. Bush.
I wish I had known this before. This makes my decision so much easier after learning these facts, particularly the one about President George W. Bush not being part of the Republican Party. Whew.
I also didn’t realize that democrats represented the elite and that the republicans represented the poor man. I guess it makes sense, then, that the republicans want more tax cuts for corporations and the uber-rich. Why should the middle-class get tax cuts? Everyone knows that if you give tax cuts to corporations, especially those corporations who export U.S. jobs to foreign countries, and to people who make over $250,000 a year, then eventually the benefits of those tax cuts will trickle down to the middle-class. After all, this trickle down type of economic policy has been working like a charm in the last eight years. We should keep doing that!! I mean, it’s not like we have a big deficit, our unemployment rate has not increased, and we have a very robust housing market with minimal foreclosures. And, just take a look at our rising stock and bond markets. Anyone who says we’re not better off than we were eight years ago has their heads in the sand! If you don’t believe me, just look at your 401(K) statements!
I also didn’t realize that republicans are the party whose primary interest is the U-nited States of America, as opposed to the democrats, who, as I now realize, are probably aligned with terrorists, such as Al-Queda. I now know that those country-hating democrats are against the torture of terrorists, extraordinary rendition, and anything else that would give ‘due process’ to anyone, citizen or not, who is suspected of terrorism. It’s not like our country was founded upon the principle of ‘due process’! I think that term was invented by judges, all of whom are just trying to legislate from the bench. I also didn’t realize that republicans are the party that want to reduce the size of government. This is good news, because our president for the last eight years has increased it. It just keeps getting better for the republicans!
I guess it’s a good thing that President George W. Bush is not from the Republican party. When I watched the convention on television, he wasn’t even there and those Republicans didn’t even mention his name. I don’t even get what those Obama commercials are saying that McCain and President George W. Bush are the “same.” That’s just ridiculous. They are not even from the same party! And, as everyone surely must know, the Republicans have absolutely nothing to do with keeping that President George W. Bush in office the last eight years.
Wow. What an epiphany. You know where my vote is going come November!
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!
