You end up with someone one in office who's views are so far in the 1800's that we end up fighting for rights that were established years ago. The video isn't that far fetched because we have Teaparty Republicans in office not-cut from the same cloth.
My point is that the title of your blog is as misleading as most Democrats and the way that they go about presenting it with a false narrative. Let me explain. 1. This is an Idaho primary for the Republican candidate for Govenor so this should have been known somewhere in the title or in the narrative. 2.. Mr. Brown and Bayless aren't politicians and don't possess the necessary leadership qualities and experience to win the position; however the main attack upon "Republicans" is the main topic for discussion in the blog is focused on their personal views and philosophy's instead what the state needs to improve itself. 3.That is misleading too because if you watch the whole debate as I have done, it is very clear that Govenor Otter or Mr. Fulcher is going to win this primary and what's even more evident is they are Republicans too and both have different approaches to how the state should be run. Just from this debate if I was in Idaho I would vote for M.Fulcher because his policies would help all Idahoans. Governor Otter is a RINO" Republican in name only" A conservative Republican don't compromise on time honored principles that have been proven to work in this country.
Citizens have to be concerned about the country as a whole.
Another example of Republicans/tea-party candidates that have run or won office.
PN, what's your opinion on these 12 Democrats that voted for Obama in 2008 and not even knowing simple answers to questions such as who's in control of congress and who's Nancy Pelosi? While in the meantime they know Sarah Palin has a pregnant daughter and how was spent on her wardrobe in addition to believing that she said she could see Russia from her house?
Funk- for the record- I was leaning towards the Republican party early in life before they lost their mind and message. The Republicans have declared war on women, middle-class poor, elderly, young people, minorities and gays.
When you run for office you represent the needs of everyone. If you can't represent blacks, whites, Asians, gays women and etc; you shouldn't run for office. It's about the people.
You are a very smart person and you seem to be hardworking and involved in the community. I appreciate you taking time to share with me in a respectful manner. However, we will never agree when it comes to politics.
@PN. Yes ma'am, you are so correct and I just got back from the courthouse in the middle of the town to cast my Democratic vote via early voting. Easy and quick.
MICHELLE NUNN Democrat for U.S. Senator from Georgia and all the other Democrat candidates.
Kind of reminiscent of voting for "someone" based on color as opposed to a candidate possessing a successful track record... Just saying...
PN, for the record I grew up a dedicated Democrat throughout President Clinton's tenure. However I never was an ideologue , always believed in rule of law and doing the right thing. Of course it was impossible to not make mistakes get in trouble or do wrong sometimes. The top 3 Oresidents in my lifetime are Ronald Reagan, JFK and Bill Clinton. You see I base my political beliefs on someone who enforces and support the rule of law. Contrary to what you believe Democrats of today have lost there minds again as they have done so in the entire US history. You won't be able to realize it unless you are able to "keep your friends close and your enemies closer". You have acknowledged that you can't stomach Fox Rush and so and so forth therefore you are restricted in the information that you receive to make the best decision about the issues. Just remember this all Republicans aren't conservatives and being conservative doesn't equate to racism or a war on women gays etc ect. By enforcing the rule of law you are upholding everyone's rights. You continuously give President Obama a pass because he's a Democrat and is black. You also say the ACA is a good law and is working. Can you explain to me since the constitution states that the President is compelled to execute the laws on the books, why is it ok for him to have a pen and a phone and change the legislation enough that it don't implode before our very eyes before the mid-term elections. I does not care whether you Democrat or Republican. I cares about enforcement of the law.
"Citizens have to be concerned about the country as a whole."
That's right - and the Democrats have undermined "the country as a whole" for as long as I can remember. I, too, was raised a Democrat by parents who were staunch supporters until they were ultimately torpedoed by the provisions of the Democratic Party platform. Since the days of Jimmy Carter, the Democrats have ignored the fact that business is the engine that runs our system and our society, to the detriment of the vast majority of Americans. Further, the Democrats maintain their constituencies by ensuring continued subservience through programs which maintain their dependence on GOVERNMENT.
Our society is NOT socialist, but many Democratic party goals and objectives clearly are pushing the country in that direction. Socialism does not serve the interests of the whole of our capitalist country. In fact, socialism is the antithesis of capitalism, and the Democrats' implementation of socialist policies actually undermines the foundation of this country.
