Welcome to "Both Parties Are NOT the Same!"
As these endless Republican debates have gone on and on, I have been increasingly disturbed with what I see from these candidates and with what I see from the Republican crowds watching these debates.
I have been equally frustrated by many people, many from the progressive uber-left, many supporting someone like Ron Paul or a third party candidate, some from the Occupy movements, that are adamant that "Both parties are the same". Look, I know that the Democrats and Obama are not perfect (Did anyone expect them to be perfect?), but I know in my heart that they are NOT THE SAME as these, racist, homophobic, anti-woman, and anti-human people who populate the Republican party in the year 2012.
What about a Third Party?
I firmly believe that a vote for any third party candidate this year is a vote for the Republicans. I furthermore believe that staying home because someone believes that "There is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans; they are both tools of Wall Street" is the same as voting for one of these race-baiting, despicable Republicans.
I intend to include two major types of articles in this blog:
- Information, articles, comments that really highlight the difference between the current crop of Republicans and the Democrats.
- Information, articles, comments that answer some of the complaints from the uber-left, disgruntled Progressives, Ron Paul supporters, and various Third Party supporters that "both parties are the same; both parties are supported by corporations", etc.
I will say that Ron Paul is fair game on this blog. I contend that the poor quality of education in this country has led the way to many young people completely missing Paul's racist and sexist character and somehow seeing him as a hero.
Unlike my Molly's Middle America blog, which highlights jobs, employment numbers and trends, and other political commentary, this blog will not feature as much original writing and research. I expect that it will mostly include links to other information, paragraphs, "blurbs" and comments from Facebook and other places that are relevant to the topic of the blog. I intend to organize all of this information for easy reference.
I welcome all comments and any emails, particularly those with articles or sources. I will not delete comments with opposing viewpoints unless they involve name-calling, abuse, lies, or repeated inane statements. Those will go.
