Republicans Deserve to lose in '06

I'm actively discouraging everyone I know from voting for any Republicans on the Federal Level in 2006. I believe that the best thing we can do for this country is have some good old fashioned gridlock.

Since so many of you Republicans visit this blog (and I appreciate your presence dearly) please tell me why Republicans deserve another chance. I'm curious what you think...or if you think. (excuse the cheapshot there)

Honestly, I don't think either party deserves the chance. I'm tired of being Republican. I shredded my letter from the RNC asking me to update my membership by giving more. I don't even know how they got my address.

The only reason I still prefer Republicans is because I am pro-life, I want to keep my 2nd ammendment rights and they are usually a bit better on security issues.

As for voting, I might just write myself in for every national office. Or maybe I'll write you in.

I will accept any write-in votes and if I win...I promise to represent the state of (insert your state's name here) to the best of my I want hot interns.

i think our good friend osama and the al queida gang just ensured the GOP will win in this midterm.
this whole thing happened too close to the election, and folks just dont trust democrats when it comes to this sort of thing.

I don't think that the recent events in Britain will effect the election. Polls show that even Republicans are fed up with Bush's handling of Iraq and the so-called war on terror.

Why should anyone not trust a Democrat to fight terrorism? Roosevelt defeated Hitler and Clinton almost killed Osama with cruise missiles. That's closer than Bush ever got. Unless you count when Bush let Osama flee from Tora Bora by pulling our troops back and letting the locals handle it.

Why would you think Republicans are better at fighting terrorism? Their answer to 9/11 was to invade Iraq. I forget who said it first, but that's akin to invading Mexico after Pearl Harbor.

We KNOW Republicans have screwed up the fight against terrorism. We don't know that the Democrats would do worse. Come on now, do you really think Bush the absent Air National Guardsman and Cheney the five-time deferrment king are braver men than John Kerry, the holder of the Silver Star for heroism?

I say if staying the course is bad, your one and only choice is the other side.

Tracy would disagree and say the third choice is the Libertarian candidate. When the Libertarians can win one single state, I might buy into that.

robert, CAN the democrats fight terrorism?
i'm not so sure they even want to.
and dont forget.clinton was offered osama, and refused him.
oh, and then they have lieberman showing what happens to democrats who dont follow the michael moore wing.
FDR couldnt win the democrat nomination in todays's party, and kennedy would have been ran outta town.

the democrats have become the party of jimmy never-met-a-leftist-dictator-i-didnt-kiss carter.

I can't argue that the Republicans deserve anything, but I can argue that the Democrats deserve NOTHING! They can't fight terrorism and they will only worsen the budget with new programs. They will reverse the tax cuts that are now working and raise taxes if they ever get the chance. I might not be campaigning for DeWine, but I'm sure as heck not voting for Sharrod Brown!

But we did declare war on Germany after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

Plus please add Bay of Pigs and Vietnam to your list of military actions led by Democrats.

Also while Hitler was defeated by Eleanor Roosevelt, her husband gave Eastern Europe to Stalin.

I trust only Harry Truman to deal with the terrorists.
