Republicans Don't Like Themselves

| Filed under: Politik

elephant.jpg

What's wrong with the Republican Party?

Apparently a lot, if Republicans are are unhappy with their own party!

According to a new poll, almost 4 out of 10, about 38% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have "an unfavorable opinion of their own party."

In comparison, only 7% of Democrats have an unfavorable opinion of their party.

As for the American public, 53% of them have a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party as compared to just 34% who favor the Republicans.

It's a sign that the times are changing.

    Democrats may be happier with their political party, but Republicans are, by far, happier people. And yes, there's research to support my statement, too. I hope they retake your poll in 3-ish years. It will flip when the one-termer is sent packing as he deserves.



  2. 2

    I,d rather be an unhappy republican than a far left fucked up liberal idiot like the democratic party.



  3. 3

    I would agree its a dying party, not many people agree with there agenda it's dying out. Only old, redneck and southners still support them.



  4. 4

    fucking first



  5. 5

    Yeah but they don't hate themselves nearly as much as they hate the Democrats. Obama needs to be our President not a freaking celebrity. In 4-8 years when Obama has let our economy go to hell and we are crazy in debt, all the swing voters will be sick of the stupid corrupt Democrats. At least when a republican is in office, people usually have jobs!

    It must really suck to have voted for a man who is a complete facade… abandons his platform… so much for gay rights, huh? I like that he removed anything about having no presence in Iraq from his website. His passive take on terrorism is going to get this country attacked.

    Why have you not mentioned that Nancy Pelosi was caught lying about her knowledge involving water-boarding in previous years?



  6. 6

    if democrats get too cocky though they'll be the minority sooner than later.



  7. 7

    democrats are typically smart enough to understand what their party is doing, Republicans are completely different. I am a VERY proud Republican and always will be, i feel sorry for ignorant uneducated people. You guys REALLY ARE clueless. Lets keep on sending our tax dollars to lazy people that just want to pop out babies and live off welfare. Idk about you guys, but i sure as hell don't think thats right!!!!



  8. 8

    I think that both parties are full of shit…they should all stop with there own agenda's and start working for the people that elected them….but thats never gonna happen so were all fucked.



  9. 9

    Why are so many libs worried about the Republican party? Yes Republican well really conservatives are fighting back to regain there party from they Moderates. Right now both parties are controlled by the left.



  10. 10

    I am a very happy Republican. We are just all being quite in the background so we can tell all you dems…WE TOLD YOU SO!!!! Seems like it will happen sooner rather than later!



  11. 11

    Republicans are just dealing with the Rhinos that are making the party more left-leaning…or so they want it to be. Every party goes through this - just out with the bad in with the good. It all starts on the local/state levels. Get ready because next year Republicans are taking back at a local level and will be a huge contender in 2012. And republicans are a happier bunch. There are studies to prove it. :)

    I'm a happy republican. I'm proud some of them are standing up to that crazy Pelosi in defense of our troops etc. I know far more republicans who have a healthy attitude about life in general, most of my liberal friends (while I love them dearly) are just not happy people. You'd think since Obama won they'd have something to be happy about.

    Now that I think about it I don't know many of my liberal friends who are upbeat, happy people. They are too busy walking around thinking everyone else is an idiot but them.



  16. 16

    It was only a few years ago that the Democratic party was called the party of doom and gloom, while the Republican party was in the ascendancy. Live a little longer, and you will see that the political pendulum swings back and forth in a regular fashion. The political theories of either party are only window-dressing anyway, because the real power functions as always in the control of the money supply.

    Obama is the worst thing for this country!!! God help us now!



  19. 19

    Democraps are happy now because they control everything!But more importantly lets see in a couple of years and a couple of trillion dollars later how happy the American people are with the party in charge.
    Obama hasn't been in office a year yet and Mario your more critical of him than I am!

    Re: Tate08 – you do know that welfare is very hard to get approved for? You just don't go down to an office and be like "i need welfare." You have to have tons of documentation.

    The Republicans are a dying party - they keep making things up as they go and this right-wing extremism is fucking scary. I love how fox news says it's because of the leftist - no, dumbasses, white supremacists are ultra conservatives that only believe in a white, christian, heterosexual nation.



  21. 21

    That's because Republicans are usually less educated as a whole than democrats. There are direct links to education level of people and self esteem. I will say that if we don't stop this nasy line drawing, we will be in real trouble. People need to grow up and realize that even though we will all never agree on every point, we still need to work together to get something done. Republicans in teh senate acting like children about every single bill just because it's brought forth by a democrat is going to end up ruining this nation…and the same goes for far left Dems. We have got to start working together for the betterment of the people and not the lobbyists who are lining their pockets.



  22. 22

    Re: Tate08 – people on welfare do make it their career, if we did something like having them pick up garbage on the side of the highway (unless they are not able) with 'welfare worker' on their clothes I bet you they would find a job in no time.

    This is a glimpse of what ReThugs believe in:

    Lowering taxes for the wealthy
    Going to war on countries despite resistance from the UN
    Maximizing oil profits so their families can get richer
    Reducing the size of government because "the market will work it all out"
    Letting CEOs get richer and the poor get poorer
    Bashing anyone who isn't white
    Bashing anyone who isn't straight
    Bashing anyone who isn't Christian



  26. 26

    that's because Republicans fucking suck. Simple as that.



  27. 27

    just shut up, perez. i don't think anyone relevant gives two shits about your political opinion or agenda, which you are clearly touting in posting this garbage fluff. isn't this a CELEBRITY blog? stick to what you know.

    Re: AlexPoland – Lie. My ex-friend was getting welfare and it was EASY to get! Who gets welfare who owns an xbox 360 and a big plasma tv?

    Too many worthless Americans, that's who.



  29. 29

    Please Mario…Democrats provide the information for these polls. Republicans are grounded happy people in general and the only thing making us unhappy right now is the MORON in office….Please dont get us started on how that bafoon ended up there in the first place… Apparently crime pays….



  30. 30

    Repubs aren't happy because too many in the party are acting like Dems! RINOS have ruined the party. Time to get back to basics.



  31. 31

    Yes, come on kids, let's all take political advice from a pseudo-journalist who writes at a fifth-grade level (on a good day). That guy MUST know what he's talking about!



  32. 32

    Sitting back watching the Republican party implode!
    .
    And Smirks, don't know what you are smoking.
    .
    Bitter puppy!



  33. 33

    Another great piece of celebrity juice, freshly squeezed.

    Mario, if you want a political / gay rights blog, start one. Please leave your original blog to be what it is about, not a bully pulpit for your political views.



  34. 34

    They're waiting for Ronald Reagan to come back from the dead to rescue them. Not the real Ronald Reagan (you know, the one who granted mass anmesty to millions of illegal aliens), but the mythical one that no republican candidate (past or present) can compare to.

    They owned the white house, both houses of congress (for most of Chimpy's terms), and a majority of federal judge appointments, and they drove the country into the ground. It's now a regional party that had better get used to being the minority. They can blame themselves for electing an idiot like George W. Bush.



  35. 35

    If I was a Republican Id' be ebarassed by my party! And I'd hate myself too! Ignorant fools!



  36. 36

    What I find scarey is the 34% who think Republicans are fine. I think that's too high. It means all the fearmongering and hateful screaming and yelling out here is beginning to take effect on people. The Republicans only offer fear. They are negative. They screwed up the country. But to listen to the news you'd never know it. The news media treats Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich as if they are right!!! I hate them. The Republicans don't offer any hope. They almost ruined this country. It will take us years to get over it. Our parents lost all their retirement savings. People have lost homes and jobs and companies went out of business. THEY did it. So they need STFU.



  37. 37

    Re: Long Dong Connery – 4 No, sorry Dong, fucking whiner Smirks has that "happy" position. LOL!



  38. 38

    Mario, why the heck you and most minorities follow the democratic party is beyond me. The republicans are the fiercest defenders of human rights and the constitution. Blacks and others have been unbeleivably brain washed into thinking only the democractic party could care for them. Every time I see a black democrat I want to pull them aside and ask them what party fought hard to free the slaves and which one fought it tooth and nail. The democrats want to keep on offering up affirmative action and welfare and the repubs want people to be independent and succeed. Just sit down and think about it.



  39. 39

    Re: Tate08 – I love the judgmental attitude. Yes you are a proud Republican! True to form!
    .
    Do you actually know the figures for welfare? Maybe $35.00 a year goes to that cause.
    .
    That is not the source of our problems. But yes of course, the Republicans who profess their true love of Christ are so anti-Christian not to want to help their fellow man. Money is the root of all evil you know!
    .
    Hypocritical fool.

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – Haha. Hi Sweetpiece!! I am about as bitter as a piece of chocolate cake.

    In fact, watching Obama's moves provides me with endless entertainment and plenty of opportunities to "smirk". And you KNOW that makes me happy!!!

    I got plenty of chuckles out of Obama's (non-)handling of North Korea, and just this morning reading about how he gifted his major political donors with ambassadorships in Europe while the career diplomats got postings to lesser African and South American nations was positively hilarious.

    Wathching him bow to the Saudis, and in turn being bowed to by Brian Williams was better than watching a Chaplin movie. Me? Bitter? lol. Surely you jest. ;)



  42. 42

    Re: AlexPoland – I wouldn't know how hard it is, because i don't need to live off of government funding - i can support myself and my family. I can't imagine it being that hard though, especially when you're popping out kids left and right - someones got to support them when unfit parents can't.



  43. 43

    BTW Obama totally ruined this country in a record time of several months. Everyone knows you can't print off several trillion dollars and not have a bad impact on inflation. I've got an impressive amount in savings and it will probably be worth pennies in several years. Just go to the grocery store and look I Can't Beleive It's Not Butter. It was 69 cents and now it is $1.69. Who the heck thought you would pay 5 bucks for two chicken breasts.

    Re: lemonbird – They have almost ruined this country? Are you serious? Since Obama has been in office its just getting worse and worse. I know you ignorant fools will blame Bush until you're blue in the face, but just remember who was in control of congress for the last 2 years…when the economy went to the shitter. It's not that hard to educate yourself, stop listening to what someone is feeding you and figure it out for yourself. This country would be a much better place if people weren't so damn ignorant. I personally could careless if someone is gay and wants to get married, as long as it doesn't effect my life…do whatever you want.

    I'd like to know what it is about a liberal that they can't post a comment without calling someone else an idiot? It always comes down to name calling because liberals cannot stand that someone has a different opinion than they do…so the only way you try to defend yourself is to call the other person an idiot or uneducated. I'd rather be a Republican ANY DAY than a liberal who doesn't have a positive bone in their body.

    Re: SWEETPIECE! – Anti-Christ? Really? You don't even know what you're talking about, but thats usually the case when i try and have a conversation with a ignorant democrat. Its okay, when America is destroyed by Obama (yes, its happening!) maybe you'll think differently? Hmm, doubt it. Why should i help someone out that isn't even TRYING to help themself out? I don't mind giving money to things that i believe in, but giving money to lazy people isn't something i believe in.



  50. 50

    I said this last year - the decent, half-compassionate republicans had their party stolen from them by the fanatical whack-jobs.
    -
    If they can't get rid of Palin, Newt, the non-political mouthpieces of Limbaugh and Fox Faux news, and the most recent home-grown far right killers, their party will continue to decline.

    Re: Tate08 – Don't bother attempting to make Sweetpiece see reason. She has all her liberal talking points memorized and is in lockstep with comrade Obama. Pointless waste of time, imo.



  52. 52

    The republican party of earlier years is dead. I'd hope the decent folks could find so form of better representation — right now, The Republican Party and Jerry Springer Show are pretty much one in the same.



  53. 53

    the only reason i made a freaking login name was to comment on this post. this whole country is corrupt. but what you are uneducated on is that most democrats regret voting for obama and hes too busy surfing, dining, watching broadway shows, than being the president! he sends the pictures of his family to people and us weekly for millions of dollars..oh so our country is in an economic tragedy but he can make money of his celebrity family..its a joke and so is everthing you claim to know about politics



  54. 54

    Re: RedWingsFan – Excellent post. Even when the Democrats controlled Congress and all the voting - people STILL blamed Bush, so many "last 8 years of policies" when most that were passed were on the Democrats agenda, NOT Bush's. But that's too much to think about or retain for most idiots that voted Obama. Now, in a few years, when we're all eating North Korean, and no one has a house, and everyone is living in a slum (people who make bank aren't going to anymore, since more than half their money they work their ass off for will go to taxes - almost all taxes come from 2% while 40% pay NO TAXES at all… and the coffers are so empty, the crickets won't even come to them.

    Re: PCdrama Try again there stud. The last 10 years of studies show not only completion of secondary education, but post secondary education is highest in those who have been with their party more than 2 years (a traditional benchmark to throw out party hoppers without an actual affiliation). Anyone can "call" themselves a democrat, and I know quite a few who did, without even knowing why. Obama's one, so they are too! Take the stats today - not only will it be viciously skewed against Dems because of the idiots who don't know party lines (like morons who think liberal = gay rights, when almost all Dems are AGAINST what they are asking for) and you've made the Dem pool about as bright as a dead "green" compact idiocy florescent light bulb (yeah, save the Earth, by saving energy with MERCURY).



  57. 57

    8 years to 6 months.
    Hmm, common sense is out the window with these "crazy" Repubes.
    .
    Our country is definitely going in the "right" direction. Environmentally, socially, and economically. It doesn't happen overnight.
    .



  58. 58

    If I were a Democrat I would be happy about not having to work as hard and collecting all the tax money from hard-working Republicans. Democrats, its the party for the free-loaders. Republicans ACT, Democrats TALK. Whatever the outcome I would always rather walk the walk than talk the talk.



  59. 59

    it's because many repubs think the party is supposed to be more conservative. dems are more unhappy as well but won't admit it due to pride.



  60. 60

    Re: Smirks:) No!



  61. 61

    the problem with our party (Republican) is that they, in Washington, are becoming more and more moderate and won't stick to our conservative values and constitution…no one believes what they believe anymore and that's sad….we're slowly moving left in Washington, and I don't think any Republican wants that…that's why most people are upset…

    Re: Tate08

    You know, some people really do need that money, and it can't be helped a select few use and abuse the system. As few fucking cents out of my paycheck isn't going to kill me. Don't screw over everybody because of a few. Most people on welfare are on it for a few months and get off of it as soon as possible, as most people are too embarrassed to be on there to begin with.



  64. 64

    Re: Wenchtits A "Select few" - you mean millions collecting welfare right now, that have no intention of doing anything AND Obama lifting even more restrictions on being able to use it? If you think it's only a select few, you need to do a helluva lot more research before you open your mouth. Most recent reports by their own agencies put abuse at above 30% and guess what Obama made it even easier to abuse the system AND made more be able to qualify. A few cents - you're funny. By the time the initiatives pass, you're looking at more than $50 a month (AFTER his single tax "cut" that didn't even fall for 47% of Americans), maybe not "much" to you, but to our family, that IS a lot (guess you don't realize most military live at or below poverty line and don't qualify for most programs because they are "employed" by the government).

    As a Republican I was willing to give OB a chance. But his "change we can believe in" was just a bunch of crap. Obama's stimulus plan cut substantial amounts money for cancer research. CANCER-it's one of the leading killers of people in this country and he cut research funding??? He then decided to cut death benefits for police and firefighters BUT it's ok to spend 200 million on sending 17 prisioners to an island or it's ok to spend 20 million on a NYC trial for another? but our military, police and firefighters families will have to struggle to survive after they've lost someone in the line of duty? His priorities are not in order. He says he's a "citizen of the word" but what about being "a proud citizen of the United States!" I wish he cared more about the welfare of people in THIS country as he does his popularity across the globe. I think he makes us look weak.

    Re: cockface
    It doesn't take too much research to figure out that if Obama was the member of a racist church for 20 years that he also heard hatred spewed about gays. His church preached against whites, homosexuals and others and he sat there and listened for 20 years! Do some people not get the fact that Obama is just not that accepting of the gays as Perez would like to think. You're right, Cheney is more supportive of gays and always has been…for that matter so was McCain who has a staff full of gays. YES he has a staff full of gays and his daughter is best friends with numerous gay guys. SHOCKER. People assume that because you call yourself a Dem that you automatically support gays. The majority of Dems I know are VERY anti-gay. Me, I'm a Republican and I believe that love is love in my book, but because I'm a Republican people assume I'm also anti-gay. Not true in the least.

    Re: kjen – "I'd like to know what it is about a liberal that they can't post a comment without calling someone else an idiot?"

    Check the comments - I think you are skewed in your observances. Here are what some of the Conservatives/Republicans said:
    #2-Idiot, #5-corrupt, stupid, #7 - ignorant, uneducated, clueless, #46-ignorant fools, #49-ignorant Dems, #51-compared dems to commies, #54-iditos, #56-idiots/morons, #58-freeloader - 9 comments and 13 insults, compared to:

    What Liberals/Democrats said:
    #3-old/redneck, #21-less educated (NOT idiots), #35-ignorant (again, not idiots), #39-hypocritical fools, #59-crazy fools - 5 comments and 6 insults.

    Seems like the repubs have the lead on the insults.

    As #21 said: - (paraphrasing) can't we all just agree to disagree and stop the name calling and insults?!?!

    We are never going to agree, so why waste so much time arguing?

    This is because the "republican party" just any PARTY doesn't represent all people. Douche. The current republican party is no different than the democrat party. They're both spend-happy, power-hungry egomaniacs that don't listen to their constituents. Moron. Keep to the gossip and keep your ignorant, small-picture viewing ass out of politics.

    Re: kjen – He cut benefits, because there was SUCH a surplus. Even Suzie Sawyer, executive director of Concerns of Police Survivors said that this budget will be enough and extra money is always found when necessary - such as after 9-11. In the 2 years before Obama took office, cancer research funds were cut 3 times. Scientist were nervous because they had no other type of research available. The funds were cut this time because there still is a surplus and the introduction of stem cell research (which is basically cancer and other deadly disease research), will get some of those funds. We are lucky that we have a President that is willing to expand our research for cancer by offering stem cell research and with the procedures they use today, no loss of life is necessary to collect the stem cells.

    Re: Bobo Dinky – I've been talking to my very free-minded cousin about the Libertarian Party and it sounds good. I'll research it, but it sounds like my kind of thing. People try to call BS on me, because I say that I'm not really a Dem or Rep, but it's true. I believe that if two gay people want to marry, go for it. I also believe that this is MY country and if you want to be here, then you do it legally. I HATE the welfare system, but it does help the poor hard-workers that don't want to use it. Yes, conservs, there are people out there that truly deserve it and don't abuse it. Like wenchtits (#69) said, 70% of the welfare recipients DON'T abuse it. The Libertarian Party is exactly what this middle-of-the-road lady needs!! Thanks for your comment - it's nice to hear from someone who is from neither the right or left!!

    Re: Jodman – WOW, you must really have a lot of free time to go through each post and quote everyone. That, or no life. I'm gonna go with that one. BUT ANYWAY:

    -it is true that Republicans aren't happy with their parties actions IN CONGRESS, i.e. trying to move more towards the left. Hell, Rush Limbaugh isn't happy with the party right now. Neither is most Republican figureheads like Bill O'Reilly or Hannity. If you paid attention to any news that wasn't on CNN or MSNBC, you'd know the Republican voters are pissed that the party is trying to become more progressive, so your stat about Republicans not being happy with the party means we're not happy with a handful of powerful "Republicans" in congress.

    -I'd like to see how long it takes before all the Liberals who were brainwashed by the media to admit that Savior Obama is making a mess out of this country. He's trying to do what the UK did years ago, and guess what…it didn't work out for them. It's insanity to think it's going to work out any differently for us.

    Now, did I say 'idiot' one time in that post. Methinks not.

    Perez while I love your website because you have the BEST dirt, I completely disagree with your politics. Please stick to celeb gossip which you have a talent for and let politics be decided by each individual. The article you site in this post is absolutely engineered by a liberal media outlet. It's funny how replublicans as a party are constantly told to be tolerate of liberal views while liberals are never tolerant of conservative views. I believe thats call being a hipocrit.



  80. 80

    Perez, how about we should all be worried about being AMERICANS? Why must you always try to divide people? Aren't all Democrats and Republicans AMERICANS? Maybe if ALL OF US acted like AMERICANS, got together and pushed to bring our jobs back from other countries and got rid of the ILLIGAL immigrants, we would have AMERICA back as our country. I would love it if you actually would promote AMERICAN PRODUCTS, LEGAL PEOPLE. Then maybe we could actually get somewhere. You backed OBAMA and look where that got you? False promises you fell for. Lets all forget this garbage of Republican and Democrat and push for AMERICAN. After all, isn't that what we should be pushing for? Are all of you tired of Illigals taken your jobs? Are you not tired of loosing jobs? This will not end until AMERICANS get together and STAND UP FOR OUR COUNTRY. I could give a rats ass if that AMERICAN is Republic or Democrat.

    Re: kjen
    It really wasn't that hard. I just know, from personal experiences, that Liberals are denounced just for being so, so your first post entrigued me. I had a feeling it would be more towards one side, but I had to prove it, because I hear that way too often. Conservs have complained about party bashing and name calling by the Libs, but fail to realize/accept their own name calling and bashing of Libs. For once, I wish EVERYONE would realize that there are idiots, criminals, liars, etc, etc on BOTH sides, so to argue it is basically a moot point.

    Re: Wenchtits Wow, you don't get it - you're happy to throw away MILLIONS of dollars so that rules can be relaxed so that those who ARE on it don't have to be beneficial to society? Not to mention the 30% figure is off CONFIRMED reports… the scope is much higher… you'll make any stupid statement, from a select few, to now "oh that 70% then"? Given that many others qualify for other programs including Medicaid and Medicare. OR forget the fact that figure does NOT include women who pop out babies to abuse the system, but only known FRAUD of the system, the system itself is TRULY beneficial for about 10-20%. And forget the fact that some people are being overpaid. And NO, I'm not willing to sacrifice my hard earned money to support programs I don't support the handling of. You don't get it, you'll just piss and moan and take what ever is spoon fed to you. What a shame.

    We are unhappy with our party (I shouldn't say "we"- I'm now a registered libertarian) because we can't get the old sucky guys out and you liberal media types just make fun of the newer, better guys, even though they have the best ideas. Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Bobby Jindal….all automatically get shot down by most mainstream media outlets for the simple fact that they are republicans (or conservative) and easier to take out than the big guys. This is why we are unhappy with the party. We try to support "change" or more fresh ideas and then the jackasses on TV (and sometimes people like Limbaugh and Coulter, too!) make fun of them so much that we stupidly begin to doubt.

    So we should only have a one party system? That will be the death of this country.

    The Republican Party is just fine but thank you for caring Perez! Obama better shape his shit up soon and stop trying to be the new "mainstream celebrity."



  86. 86

    Wow if you people think that, then you are drinking the fucked up kool-aid. I'm happy with my party! The problem is that people like Schwarzeneggar and other liberal republicans want to change the party, and that is what I find unexcusable. If you want to be liberal, then go to the other side. Republicans believe in principles, where obviously people like Letterman who is a die hard liberal has no morals so it's okay to make fun of someones daughter and make sick jokes out of it. That is the difference. I find it disgusting that people have the gull to laugh at that stuff. What if it was your child that was being talked about? Or Obama's daughter's, oh.. let's not go there!!!

    Re: PCdrama – Are you kidding me!! Republicans are less educated than Democrats?! Are you a total halfwit? You can't even spell correctly in your comment, your sentence structure is random, and you have the nerve to call US less educated? What a moron. Then, you try to justify your ignorance by saying the Republicans are acting like children because they oppose every bill put forth by the Dems. HELLO!! That's what the Dems were doing the last 8 years to all the bills submitted by the Repubs. That's how it ALWAYS works with either side in power. Wake up and smell the last 100 years dips@*t.

    And as for you "AlexPoland" - get out from under your rock. You, and all the small minded morons like you, can suck my d@*^! Trying to group everyone who doesn't agree with you into a "dumbasses, white supremacists are ultra conservatives that only believe in a white, christian, heterosexual nation" catagory just makes you look like the idiot you are. Better cover up dummy, your ignorance is showing!

    Because fiscal conservatism and social conservatism are conflicting beliefs, as well they should be. Why would you want small government with your money but not with your personal lives and religion? I live in a pretty conservative district and most were turned off by McCain by the election - NOT because he was a moderate, but because they felt he was not the McCain they liked to begin with. So of course it's going to be a mess watching people with two completely incompatible ideologies try to make sense of things. Hopefully the ones that aren't hatemongerers end up on top of the party before we end up with socialized health care or something.



  89. 89

    Oh, and I'd also like to know who runs these "polls". Funny, I wasn't asked this question. And I'll bet none of many other Republicans on this website were asked either. These so-called "polls" are as meaningless as the idiots who post them. Ask only the question you want to only the people you want to answer them, and you can have a poll say anything you want it to.

    I just hate that people assume if you are republican that you can't support gay people. I find it interested that Chastity Bono (now Chaz) came out and said that her liberal mother hit the roof and didn't speak to her for a while. It was her "conservative" father who had no problem with it when she came out and showed the utmost support and that was right after he'd joined congress as a Republican! It is her conservative step-mom Mary Bono who is publicly backing her now..why is Cher so mum? Isn't she a big time liberal? Why is it the step-mom showing all the support! I just hate how some people automatically assume things about certain groups of people. When my cousin came out it was his liberal mother who didn't speak to him for 8 years. His die-hard Republican father was the one to never judge him. And ya know what my gay cousin votes Republican because he votes on issues other than just the gay issue.

    The Republicains have really missed the boat on updating the Party line to encompass the ideals of the next generation of Voters. They continue to cling to outdated "old man" ideals and party line. Time for the old gaurd to move over for the younger generation. Once they do they should be able to raise the voting "Q" score

    Here's something to think about before you start assuming all republicans are "white, heterosexual christians."
    I am a homosexual man but also a republican. Obama promised many things (much like Hitler) and has come through on nothing thus far. He was going to give me marriage rights, has he? No.
    Also, black people bitch about not having anything and being discriminated against. Give me a break. Discriminated against is the wealthy white kid that can't get into college because of 'affirmative action.' That's discrimination. Entrance to college should be based on accomplishments and education, not how much money someone has in the bank or what their skin color looks like. I am a wealthy white male and pay roughly $15,000 per semester for my college. A poor black male goes to my same college for free, yet he is an idiot. That's discrimination. Don't sit here and think you deserve anything because your great great great great grandad was a slave. HE deserves retribution, not you. Republicans fight for people that work hard, not people that are lazy, incompetent, detrimental members of society.

    not true. Republicans are very civil and I bet alot of them kindly declined to take the poll. I'm a republican.

    THAT'S BECAUSE IGNORANCE IS BLISS.

    Most democrats are either young and dumb, or poor and stupid.
