It's only okay if it's MY religion...

I am so frustrated at the way that the Republican party has been hijacked.
I cannot agree with the Democratic Party's position on most issues, like taxes, education policy, gun control, fiscal policy, government entitlement programs, universal healthcare... it's a long list.
But apparently to be a Republican you have to check your education and common sense at the door, and accept that global warming is natural and that homosexuality is not, and that we should go to war to free people in the Middle East from being forced to live according to the Koran while imposing the Bible on everyone in America.
Who ever thought that Ronald Reagan would become the poster child for political moderation? And why can't I be a Republican without being an ignorant, narrow-minded, reactionary hatemonger?

Hi. I'm a friend of Billy's and am always asking about the kids. One day he said, "you should just read my sister's blog" and I replied, "Great!". Being a blogger myself and having many blogs that I follow, I'm always in the market for another. However, that suggestion by Billy was several months ago, and I finally got the address from him today. I hate it when people just blog stalk me and don't let me know they are reading, so I just wanted to let you know that you have another reader.
