A plea to all dubyas/republican supporters.greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
The way 'dubya' is trying to steal this election is oprobrious. The man knows no shame. He is an embarassment to everyone who calls themselves an American. He will do anything to take away the will of the people which is obviously a Gore/Lieberman presidency.
If you consider yourself a Republican or you voted for George W. Bush you have the civic duty to call you local auditor and demand that they retract your vote. Do it for your country. Down with the fascists - up with the people.

I voted for Bush 8 or 9 times this year. So I demand that the Democrats take 18 or 19 votes away from Bush and give them to Gore.

DO IT FOR THE GIPPER!

The "will of the people" this time out seems to be rather equivocal,don't you think?
If Gore gets in, he will be fighting a rearguard action every day. His chances of accomplishing anything other than a few well-timed vetoes are practically nil. Bush, however, would be able to do a lot more mischief, since Republicans hold razor-thin margins in both chambers of Congress.
If you are in favor of muddle and governmental constipation in 2001, you should be rooting for Gore.
If you are in favor of partisan rancor, rising bitterness, and cramming a conservative agenda down the country's gullet, only to become mired in muddle and governmental constipation in 2003 (when the Democrats acquire a razor-thin margin in at least one chamber of Congress in the off-year election) then you should be rooting for Bush.
If you want something better than these two piss-poor alternatives, you had better be willing to get involved in the real politics of getting things done, not just indulging in political nagging, bickering and sniping from the sidelines. Be ready to compromise.

Were you abused as a child?

>> Were you abused as a child? <<
No. My parents were excellent, loving and fair-minded. Superb examples of the parenting genre. No one outside my home abused me, either. What makes you ask?

Don't mind Bob, he just has a problem understanding anyone who isn't a redneck.

You were very close Bob. Brian abuses HIMSELF and unfortunately, for the most part, he is unsuccessful. This should help explain Brian’s ‘shortness’ of reason that has become the hallmark of his posts. Be nice and give him some slack, as he just is not able to ‘grasp’ the situation.

Good answer to an offensive question, Brian. If someone asked me that based solely on my political views, I'd be considerably less polite.
