An Old Lady Democrat

I have been a Dem my whole life - six months shy of 80 years. Why? Because I've never met a Conservative I could stand for more than a few minutes.

However, the new crop of Conservatives are probably the most nutso that I have encountered in my entire life - in that they are very dangerous and purposefully so.

George W. Bush was dangerous because he was stupid. Not malicious. Not angry. Just a do-do bird who really just wanted to own a baseball team and somehow wound up being president for 8 years.

But this new crop; the Santorum, Bachmann, Palin, Beck/ Limbaugh crazies - they are not JUST stupid. They have darkness in their souls. They have evil eyes. And they call themselves Christians? I think not! The REAL message of Christianity is to HELP all those in need, not spend time reading some old obscure book and shaming young ones for who they love or the hard decisions they had to make. Shame on them all I say!

I sincerely hope President Obama wins again, as he's doing well enough for me. Mitt Romney doesn't even know which side of the fence he's on half the time. He's just proof that somebody with lots of money isn't necessarily the brightest bulb in the box, as Fox News (sic) might have you believe.

Thank you for reading the ramblings of an old lady!!

Bless you!!! I stand with you ALL the way!! Obama 2012!!!

Your perspective on how crazy conservatives have become today is especially valuable given how long you have had to compare them with. Thanks for sharing.<br />

P.S. What ramblings? You should read my posts for ramblings.

Good comments from both of you...and good information from goodogstay. Thanks!

These Republicans really are evil. They'll never change or apologize when they make mistakes. They are willing to destroy this country just to sell it off to the highest bidder. This country seems to be going in reverse while most of the public is fixated on ball games.<br />

The only thing that ever changed a conservative's mind was the business end of a rifle belonging to the union army.

Thank you brother!!!

These tea-bag neo-cons truly are evil....I firmly believe that. They have nothing at all in common with traditional "conservatives" like Barry Goldwater, Gerald Ford, John Chaffe, or even Mitt Romney's father, George Romney.....These Republicans were all able to work out their differences and compromise with the Democrats when necessary...Even Richard Nixon, with all his ruthlessness and egocentricities, was not a truly evil person, like the evil bastards you name in your story......One popular Republican Senator, Richard Lugar of Indiana was defeated in a primary election because he was one of the few Republicans left who WAS willing to compromise with the Dems. ...These neo-cons have, as you say, "darkness in their souls". Mitt Romney is their new leader.......Karl Rove, Grover Norquist, , and others all have one destroy the Democratic Party. ..The billionaire Koch Brothers' "Americans For Prosperity" are spending hundreds of millions of dollars attacking Obama for his support of solar and wind power.....Another right-wing billionaire, Kenneth Adelman, has promised to spend .$100 million or more to defeat Obama.... ....In 1997, that evil bastard Richard Cheney, came up with the Project For The New American Century, (PNAC) in 1997,,,,a doctrine that called for US power to be that of an aggressive & unilateral approach that would secure American dominance of world affairs by force if necessary; and which was put into place as soon as "W" was appointed POTUS by the right-wing Supreme Court, and culminated in America attacking a country that had nothing whatever to do with the 9/11 attacks, Iraq.<br />
Now, not only do they have ultra-right-wing think tanks such as the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute & the Hoover Institute....they also have corrupt money laundering organizations such as Democracy Alliance & the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) . In addition, thanks to the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, these evil bastards now have UNLIMITED FUNDING through Super-Pacs such as Karl Rove's American Crossroads, which plans to spend at least $240 million to defeat well as other SuperPacs such as Club For Growth Action and FreedomWorks For America......According to data from the Center For Responsive politics, the Conservative SuperPacs outspend the "liberal" Superpacs 7.7 to 1 (<br />
Thank you for reading MY "ramblings"!
