Go, Elephant! Sis boom bah...Rah Rah!!

WARNING: I'm on a tree stump.

Alright, I'll admit it. I'm a faggot Republican. Given my sexuality/generation/"audience"/friends, I'm hesitant to admit it, yet I'm not ashamed. In fact, I'm tired of being on the defensive about it. It's sad that I have to feel like this is yet, another, "thing" to hide from untrained ears, but it's true. This is not a "dig" on any, but I'm sick of feeling lambasted all the time by liberals. They clearly scream out their opinions left & right (and good - glad they do - it illustrates our democracy), but it seems that most Republicans our age shy away and keep their mouths shut. Why?? Because all of us, at some point, have expressed our opinion and, in return, have been literally yelled at for it. Lots of people in our generation seriously get angry when they discover a Bush supporter in their midst. I mean, violent. Others just become extremely vocal and declare their dismay. SO, to avoid hearing "What?? How can you even think that?!," most of we Republicans are kept in the closet. We only talk about it amongst ourselves.

Well, not I. Not anymore.

I'm a Republican. I'm so glad we are fighting the war on terror. I love big business. I love success stories like Trump's and Martha Stewart's (whether they're Dems or not). I love libertarianism. No offense to most of my friends, but I'm sick of liberals screaming their opinions on every street corner -- then myself feeling like I have to shut up & sit in the corner. I've just grown so weary of it.

I'm a recruiter. Therefore, my job/career relies on a healthy economy.

Yes, when G.W. was new in office, the economy busted -- I was laid off twice -- I had to change careers for a couple years because nobody was hiring recruiters. Was that G.W.'s fault? Certainly not. Did it have everything to do with a bust that no President could have prevented? YES. Did it have everything to do with the Sept. 11 Terrorist Attacks, which, by the way, were planned during Clinton's administration - ?? VERY. (I don't blame Clinton, but I'm sick of G.W. getting blamed for 9/11 -- he had been in office LESS THAN A YEAR!) If any president is to "blame," Clinton should be held just as accountable by anyone who points the finger at G.W. Anyway, the fact remains that our economy has rebounded and we are strong again. The proof lies in the fact that I'm busy hiring for new jobs and doing very well.

Before ye cast judgement, listen. My great-grandfather didn't support FDR...and he was a poor farmer in South Dakota -- so, you can see it's a family thing. I was raised Republican. Clearly, I don't support President Bush's opinion about the queers. But, really...this country has more to deal with than whether or not I can get my marriage recognized by the state/federal government. When society is ready for it, it will happen. And the church marriage thing? Moving to the other side: LISTEN YOU EXTREME RIGHT-WINGERS: we couldn't care less if your stupid church recognizes us. I want the goddamn right to see my partner in the hospital if he's dying of cancer (not AIDS - we don't all have it). Is that evil?? Is that going to make your husband/wife turn queer?? Ughh...that extreme conservatism frustrates me too.

Anyway -- Back to my own moderately conservative nature. In the meantime, I'd rather not see my Minneapolis IDS Tower (where I work), nor any other American city, be crashed in to by a plane. Fighting terrorism is what we should focus on.

Swear at me all you like. You won't change my mind - just as I won't change your mind. And don't even play the "uneducated" card. I went to college just like everyone else, and guess what? I studied my ass off and finished with a 3.6 GPA. I was accepted to law school (but decided not to go). So -- abandon any thought of my being uneducated and/or ill-informed.

I'm tired of feeling like I have to keep my mouth shut in order to appease the opinions of my peers. I won't do it anymore.

There - I feel better. Carry on.

Oh - and by the way, my Dad would have turned 59 today. Regardless of the message, I'm sure he's happy that I'm expressing my opinon. When he was teaching, he wore a button that said, "Impeach Nixon!" He wrote it on the chalkboard, too. I guess we're alike in our expressiveness.

    By Blogger zeppgoddess, at 6:34 PM  

  • Who cares if you're a republican, it's the supporting Bush that befuddles.

    I would like to clarify one thing, though. The idea that Republicans sit quietly on the side while the Democrats and liberals "clearly scream out their opinions left & right" is a an invective statement that is echoed by the liberals about the Republicans. It all depends on what side you're on. I for one, feel like I hear very little from my fellow liberals, while lunatic rants from people like O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Zell Miller, Ann Coulter, the majority of the senate, and every Garage Logic fan out there seem deafening.

    We are probably both right.

I think it comes down to this: I am secure enough in my own beliefs to be OK if someone else doesn't believe the same way I believe. Those who yell and get angry from the get go need to grow some balls and consider why it is they need everyone to view things the same way as they do in order to be happy with themselves. The world would be a boring (and dangerous!) place if we all had the same views. I'm proud of you for sticking up for what you believe in. Screw the rest of em'! :o)

    And trust me, any idiot can get a GPA of 3.6 these days. I should know - I parcel out grades. All you're proving is that it doesn't take much intelligence to get through an undergrad program (or into law school).

  • As an ex-republican I can't compliment you on your decision. Your understanding of the economy is extremely poor. George Bush has been in office 58 months and the percentage of people employed (a different and much more important figure than the percentage unemployed) has gone down in 54 of those months. We now have no more of our population working than France and Germany, whose "unemployment" rates are double ours. Indeed, since much of our population is working part time or temp, the situation here is really worse than in Europe. The government said the economy grew 19% during Bush's first four years, 10% of which was growth and 9% inflation. But they got this number by changing the way inflation was counted repeatedly to minimize it by hedonic pricing, imputed prices, changing the market basket to reflect low interest rates but not high asset prices, etc. By 1980 standards, we had 0% growth and 19% inflation. In other words, there was no job growth because there was no economic growth, not because economic laws have changed. The only thing that prevented a depression was a rapid increase in credit which is unsustainable because the very low interest rates Bush has kept have starved the economy of investment. In almost all states median family income declined between 5 and 12% since 1999, and the total personal income reported to the IRS declined for the first time since the Great Depression, something that never happened in recessions of 1958, 1973, 1982, and 1991. G.W. Bush turned in the worst economic performance since the Great Depression and mainly it was his fault, due to irresponsible policies. You see, the wealthy do not drive the economy, the middle class do. So when you keep taxes on working people flat and give money to the rich, you reduce aggregate consumption. Keeping interest rates too low encourages disinvestment in America. No serious attempt has been made to tame corporate corruption, and the system of corporate governance has completely broken down. The average CEO is a thief and the average accountant a fraud. George Bush can be held partly responsible for these trends because he was part of them -- his company Harken Energy used the same fake-sale of liabilities fraud Enron was caught doing. And the Administration represents foreign outsourcing as a good thing, when perfectly mobile capital and captive labor markets is NOT free enterprise but slavery. The period of highest growth in the American economy was the 1950's, when taxes on the rich were also the highest in history. The current attempt to lower American workers' incomes neglects the fact that it is the American MANAGER who is uncompetitive internationally, much more than the workers.
    What would cure your wrong-headedness is what cured me. I went to live in the Deep South, where the republican agenda of low taxes, privatization, no unions, and pro-business legislation has always prevailed, under both Democrats and Republicans. The result is chronic widespread poverty, an ignorant and unskilled labor force, and corruption so endemic people don't understand that it is wrong.
    This is the result not of southern stupidity, but of the long term impact of republicanism.

  • As a gay man I might even agree with you that queer marriage shouldn't be the most important issue. Although it might be enough to hate Bush, let's say there were other things to admire about him. But that's where you lose me. Just because you're educated doesn't mean you're informed and you make that very clear by trying to continue the bullsh*t that the "war on terror" is the same as the "war on Iraq". The war in Iraq didn't become the war on terror until Bush's war decimated the country and created a breeding ground for terrorists. Anyone who links those two together has been doing little more than watching Fox News. And how wholeheartedly humane of you to determine the state of the economy by how many people you have hired and how much money you have made. I've worked with recruiters and they are maybe 1/2 step above telemarketers on the food chain. And I'm being generous. Somewhere in the afterlife that's a tear in your father's eye. He may have been brave enough to call for Nixon's resignation. You're just a coward who sells out to his sexuality and to his country. I wouldn't worry much about gay marriage. There will be few takers.

  • I'm really sorry for you. I know that being a Republican is in your family, but one of the great things about growing up and being an adult is that you can form your own opinions. The Republican party has had a disastrous affect on the world. Our economy is in the tank, the environment is taking a beating, and our civil liberties are slowly but surely being eroded. As a gay man, I'd hope you have enough pride in yourself to rage against their homophobic policies. As a human, I wish you had enough of a heart to see that the Republican party is horrible for everyone... who isn't a well to do white male.

    The republicans have succeeded in spreading their message of fear, obviously. This country is not innately conservative. GWB won a second term only because he was able to convince people like you that we would not be safe under the Democrats. It's a fraud, of course. After the collapse of Communism, it appeared that the Republicans had lost their lock on the white house. They had lost their enemy. But now they've got the terrorists. They project an image of strength, resolve, and determination, and people bought into it. Fear is powerful.

    What's amazing is that even after the Republicans have proven themselves incompetent (Iraq, not capturing Osama, Katrina, etc), some people still think they are safer under GWB. Based on their ability to lower their voices and sound commanding. People are stupid.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:20 AM  

  • The fallacy in your argument, Kiddo, is that it ignores the reality that the Bush administration's misadventures in Iraq have likely rendered us *more* vulnerable to terrorists, not less. I'm all for fighting the war on terror too; the problem is Iraq has little to do with it. The hundreds of billions of dollars we're spending there could be much more effectively used to root out Al-Qaeda cells and secure our borders and ports of entry (did you know that 95% of the cargo entering this country isn't even inspected?). Instead, we're throwing money down the toilet in a country we will soon be exiting -- I'd be shocked if we don't pull out entirely before the midterm elections next year, particularly if Republican poll numbers are still in the shitter -- and leaving to disintegrate into civil war.

    You say you're college-educated, but you don't sound terribly educated on the *real* reasons for terror (and how to stop it), and why radical Islamics hate America. (Hint: it has nothing to do with them "hating freedom" and everything to do with our support for Israel.)

    When the rest of the gays follow his example and come to their senses maybe they'll stop trying to divide this great country and pull with the rest of us against the terrorists.

  • Gay republicans are as pathetic and self-loathing as jewish Nazis. Bush is completely incompetent, and the Republican party is completely corrupt. They lie almost constantly, spinning and saying anything to gain a little more power and a lot more money. They're bankrupting the country with their fiscal irresponsibility, and they've massively grown the federal goverment's power and size faster and to a greater extent than any other president in the last hundred years. And he's harboring a traitor, putting party and power above the good of the country.

    For a gay man to suppor the most anti-gay, anti-minority, anti-working-class party is just reprehensible. Your ignorance and self-loathing are stunning to me. You don't have to be a Democrat or a Liberal, but look at the Repulbican party closely, and you'll easily see that no sane, rational person, let alone a sane and rational GAY person, should ever support ANYONE in the Republican Party. Period.

    You should be ashamed of yourself, and ashamed of the people who have destroyed conservatism over the last 20 years, making the Republican party nothing more than a propaganda and political arm of the fasciast religious right.

    Wake up and smell the coffee. Stop being so gullible. Stop supporting the liars, the cheats, the corrupt, the cronism, and the incompetent fascists destroying this country and everything it has ever stood for.

    Kiddo, because you can't get married or have equivalent civil rights, you have no guarantee of being at your partner's bedside should he be sick. This is esp true if his family doesn't like you or his homosexuality. I used to volunteer at a legal hospice for AIDS patients, and you would not believe the horror stories they told me about their families and lovers.

    Under which president did the per-capita federal spending actually decline ... the ONLY president for which this has occured in the last century? William J. Clinton.

    Under which president has the per-capita federal spending risen the fastest, EXCLUDING any expenses for the military or wars? George W. Bush.

    Under which president have civil rights and constitutional rights eroded the most? George W. Bush.

    Under which president did we balance the budget and get a surplus? William J. Clinton.

    The Republicans control both houses of congress, AND the Presidency, and what happened to the size of government, the power of federal government, and the size of the deficit? Each has grown faster than ever before in history.

    Gee, you think Republicans lie about that whole "small government" thing? Hrm? Or that whole cutting spending thing? Or that whole fiscal responsibility thing?

    Look at what Republicans DO, not what they say. They're notorious liars and spinners... EVERYTHING is politics with them, and they'll say or do anything to grab a little more power or a little more money for themselves. Ignore their words and look at their actions, and see them for what they are: a party and a president that are completely unworthy of your support.

He posted a link to his own site meter (which reqires a unique username with a numeric element) to a widely trafficked gay message board, and the meter shows thousands of hits during well-known low-traffic periods on the web. The page view data also shows an average of only one page view per hit, which leads one to believe that there is some sort of an automated bot used in tandem with a proxy. The proxy hides the identity of a unique IP address such that it shows up on sitemeters as coming from a multitude of sources worldwide. This explains the hits from places all over the world:

  • You must be living in a fantasy world. The Republicans do indeed have control of the presidency, both houses of congress and will most likely soon have control of the Supreme Court. They are making a mockery of all three branches of government. I once had faith in this system, but to see your party undermine the checks and balances designed to protect “We the People” turns my stomach. Where is the accountability, where is the justice and where is the apology this Nation, under God, so deserves? The deficit is at a record high, our young men and women are dying to instill a form of government in Iraq that your party seems hell-bent on proving is dysfunctional, at best. Republicans spend a considerable amount of time crying about putting prayer in schools, but seem unconcerned about those same schools’ funding (I thought it was “no child left behind”) and President Bush’s penchant for cronyism has cost an untold number of lives here on our own soil. Many people voted against their own best interests because the Republicans ran on a red herring ticket of hate and discrimination. There are real problems here behind the aforementioned smoke screens. Believe me, I am not whining. I'm angry at the abhorrent behavior this administration has displayed to the American People and the rest of the world. I only we hope we are ready to galvanize and vote out your pitiful constituency of paper tigers.

  • Raised Satanist by Catholics, spawned by Satan Him Self (Daddy!), I am devoutly Catholic because of the mystery of the faith and also knowing that infiltration is key to getting at the marrow.
    I totally get your drift.

  • Wow...this is the first I've even noticed the barrage of comments. And I thought all the traffic was from the Goonies post. My only response is, you won't change my mind and I (certainly) won't change yours! BTW, the "party" certainly hasn't dedicated itself to "bringing down" gay people. That's just silly to even say.

  • I hope one day to have PJ make sense of all of this to me, because the whole concept for which you stand seems counter to what it means to be an evolved, whole human being; or at least a whole human being with concerns beyond the wallet and self-preservation. I don't say that as an insult, but more of a way to clarify why I don't get it. If the material world is the only concern, then I get it, but I wouldn't relate, yet if relationships, rights, and peace are even remotely important to a Republican (let alone a GAY Republican), the whole things seems so contradictory. I'm not a Democrat, btw, just someone who doesn't understand.

  • I am still shocked at some of the "evovled" liberals who spew such hatred on this post. Mind you, most of my friends completely disagree with my tendency to lean more toward the Republicans. In reality, that means I agree more with liberal Republicans...maybe even conservative Dems. I learn every day. Amy D. is not an Ava Braun, nor even close. The one who posted that really awful comment is not the same person.
    I am DONE defending my educated opinion...other than to say, I am not the equivalent of a Jewish person supporting the Nazis. In fact, how dare you compare Republicans to the Nazi Party? That is completely ridiculous. MOST Republicans are not apart of the extreme, ridiculous right. Just b/c you're gay doesn't mean you have to be anti-Republican. Maybe a new party should be become well-known? For instance, Libertarian??
