Personally, I can't support any of these Republicans. And Since I can't support the Democrats either, for other reasons, where does that leave me? This new "Tea party" seems to be full of nut cases, not to mention that the Republicans are jumping all into the Tea Party like it was their idea. The Libertarians, whose ideas I am more closely aligned with, spend too much time trying to get drugs legalized. While I am for the decriminalization of drugs, it's not my top priority.
The Democrats have it right in a lot of ways, they are for restricting government when the republicans are for increasing government. The Hannities and Limbaughs say the GOP is the party of "less government"; the party of freedom, (Hannity's bumper music is "Let Freedom Ring"). True, the Republicans believe you should be free to do anything they think is moral. If you're homosexual (I'm not by the way) and you want to marry the one you love, they're the party of "no". If you're a woman (and I'm not by the way) who wants to make her own decision about her reproductive system, they're the party of "no". If you're an adult (which I am by the way) and you want control over your body, and what and when you put something into it, they're the...well, take a WAG...
Until the GOP gets the balls to stand up to the extremist groups (and by the way, that phrase is WAY overused) like the religious nut cases, the Tea Party nut cases, and nut cases in general, they will continue to falter. They need to stand up for their own principals, but also allow their members to think for themselves without party repercussion. We know the Democrats are not going to do this, but the GOP, the party of freedom, should allow their members to be free. It's OK for a party to have a platform, but to force the members to conform to every plank for fear of being cut off, is not the party of freedom, it's the party of Freedom to do "anything we think is OK".
