Republican Party


Why does it seem that all the crappy nominees and presidents come from the Republican Party these days? What happened to greats like Abraham Lincoln?


Today, we have Republican presidential nominees that want war for 100 years--referring to Mr. McCain-- and a lame duck Republican President....we all know who that is. *cough* *BUSH* *cough*

It seems to me that the Republicans have to have the dumbest, most selfish ideals when it comes to governing. I understand that they pride themselves on American patriotism and that being an American is a "privilege." Let's not forget the strong conservative values they believe in. The truth it, however, that none of these values work in the United States, or in the world, for that matter.

We live in a world movement and diversity. We all have the ability to go to a different country or place. Republican values don't seem to comprehend this. The United States is changing and will continue to change. The U.S. Census Bureau states that by the year 2050, African-Americans will constitute nearly 15% of the U.S. population as opposed to the 12.7% they constituted in 2000. Asian will more than double to 8% by the year 2050. Asian constituted 3.8% in 2000. And finally--this one is my favorite-- Hispanics will constitute nearly 1/4 of the total U.S. population by 2050. That's right, nearly 25%!! In 2000 Hispanics constituted only12.6% of the U.S. population. (http://www.census.gov/ipc/www/usinterimproj/natprojtab01a.pdf)

To say the least, minorities aren't going anywhere and the white race need to move over because in the future they will not hold a majority. Republicans need to realize that they must also change with the changing demographics of the U.S. population. They must abandon their strong held ideals and make way for a variety of different views that will come with the different types of people entering the U.S. They need to adjust to the different types of Americans. How are you going to run a modern country with values of the 19th or 20th century? They just can't seem to understand that.

Immigration, is a great example of Republican ideals ruining America. How cool would it be if anybody could come to the U.S. for help and a better life. People in Mexico cross the border illegally because they have no money or hope and they believe that the U.S. is there only hope to advance in their lives. (i know that from first hand experience because I crossed the border illegally, myself). Some people come here homeless, and poor. Imagine if the U.S. could just take them into its arms and give them a better life with "unalienable rights." Instead, we find people trying to get into the U.S. and we kick them back to were they came from.

Does this sound familiar:

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.


If it doesn't then go read what the Statue of Liberty says. If a Republican wrote that then it would say at the bottom, "I lift my lamp beside the golden exit door, which leads you back to your country."

Republicans just don't want learn to accept other values and people. Instead they try keep straight to their values and they don't allow immigrants in.

Now, I'm not saying that we should have a free open border. We should just regulate the people that come to the U.S. with bad intentions . If the rest want to come to better their lives then let them come. They are received by big open arms by me!

To say the least Republicans have some fucked up ideals that need to get set straight. Maybe their values worked when the U.S. pop. was almost completely white and of one color. But it doesn't work today and it won't work in the future.

I have just begun to scratch the surface of Republican stupidity.
