Good Republicans

You forgot two on your list:

19. You have to believe that electing a Republican is more important than actually counting the votes of the citizenry.

20. You have to believe that the biggest deficits in U.S. history occured overnight upon the election of Democrat Presidents.


You know - it is interesting to me that Republicans refer to Democrats as "tax and spend" - but the largest deficits were run up by Republican Presidents who consistently gave tax credits to the rich while further taxing the middle class. It seems that the only reason Republicans keep getting elected is that ignorant lower- and middle-class people keep believing that if they vote for a Republican they too will become rich and privileged. The actuality - even in this economy - is that poor, working-class, and middle-class people actually tend to fair better under Democrats, once they have been in power long enough to undo the Republican machinery. It doesn't happen overnight - and that is what is hurting the current Administration. In a day of "instant gratification" and "thirty minute solutions" we are unwilling to wait to untangle the nation's problems. We forget that even Bush himself as he left office said that our economy was on the brink of disaster. Say what you will, but Obama pulled us back from that brink - and I believe could go a long way to resolving the mess he inherited. Unfortunately, Republicans would rather backbite than work together to find answers. The man did extend his hand and the opportunity to work together - and they refused to shake it - preferring instead to ignore the needs of the nation in favor of seeking power for their party. Shame on them!
