A Short Rant About Republicans, Because of a Democrat

Umm… I know that sound weird, but… the truth is I’ve been avoid politics since Obama won a second term. Mostly because I’m so disappointed. I thought there were more people in the States who thought like I did. But it turns out there are more people in the States who want free stuff.
So… My ranting is caused by an article a liberal friend posted on FB (yes, I’m addicted to social media. Sue me). Although, the more I talk to him, the more convinced I am that he’s not REALLY a liberal. Deep down inside I think he’s a Libertarian, but like  a few people I know (myself included) he’s just not comfortable voting for a “Third Party” candidate. Either way… That should be a working link to the actual article and below is the conversation that ensued.
 

MY LIBERAL FRIEND shared a link.

Not a clue…these guys have learned absolutely NOTHING!

HIS MALE FRIEND: They continue to believe they lost the election b/c they ‘weren’t conservative enough’. Let em, to their detriment. Can’t wait for the 2014 Congressional elections.

HIS FEMALE FRIEND: that ilk is specically designed for white men only

HIS MALE FRIEND: HEY, Shawn and I resemble that remark

ME (MY RANT): Huff Post as a source? shame. Altho, I am disinfranchised w/ the Republican Party… The problem most of them need to realize (or maybe have realized) is that Dems are just plain better at the minority/ women votes… both “groups” (in general) were more worried about different issues than the Repubs (who thought they could run and win on the economy), while the Dems realized that pounding women with birth control and “womans rights” and minorities with immigration issues would (and quite possible did) win them the election. Then you add in the “lower & middle class” who got tossed the entitlement bone… Oh dear, I think I just ranted on your status. Don’t forget you’re my favorite Liberal, and I’m not a Republican. 😉

MY LIBERAL FRIEND: LOL! we need a face to face, but…c’mon. look at the state level republicans. immigration crack downs, early voting, anti-abortion laws (why are women REQUIRED to have an ultra sound even if not medically necessary?) , planned parenthood defunding (really? aren’t we throwing out the baby with the bathwater here?) The republicans truly don’t have an umbrella opened wide enough. and unless they wake up to the new demographic shaping america, they will cease to exist.

HIS MALE FRIEND: Alienating minorities and women lost the election for the conservatives. Asians, who did not benefit at all from any ‘Obama gifts’ like the Dream Act voted for Democrats in the 70th percentile b/c of the rhetoric on the right re immigration. Women felt it in the state legislatures dominated by conservatives that passed bills requiring unnecessary and invasive ultrasounds, to the US House passing a bill that redefined rape. Did it to themselves, and I haven’t gotten to the appearance of favoring the rich over the middle class. Did it to themselves.

ME (RANT CONT.): haha throwing out the baby? Literally. I think things like PP AND PBS should be privately funded… like charities. as for the new demographic… I think there will be lots of defection from BOTH parties to the Libertarians by the next Presidential election. Hopefully.
@HIS MALE FRIEND… I agree. I just don’t think they should fall in line with the Dems. The parties are so diff. on things like the economy…
the Federal gov has too much control over people’s lives. Let the border states deal with immigration how they want, let the people of each state make the choice to allow abortion, gay marriage, school choice, etc…
OOOPS. Sorry MY LIBERAL FRIEND, I just did it again. I do need to see your face. I’m still think I can convince you that you’re not an Icky Liberal.

HIS FEMALE FRIEND: pounding women with birth control? that’s really offensive

ME (BEING POLITE): Patricia- I’m sorry that was offensive. It was a poor word choice. I was too lazy to spellcheck & type “inundated”.

Yup… pounding is offensive. I think I might post the “Day after Election Rant” soon. PS… please excuse my AWEFUL grammer & spelling! I get so heated, and i have clumsy fingers.
Happy Thursday!
