I was just doing a little channel surfing and watched the Republican Platform Committee for a few minutes.
They were putting together the Republican Platform for 2008.
I saw something that really, really pissed me off.
They just voted to include in the platform a statement that they supported the balanced budget initiative.
Isn’t that pathetic?
These assholes were in charge of the government for six years and the Federal budget grew almost a trillion dollars a year and the country accumulated almost ten trillion dollars in debt but yet they have the gall to now talk about a “balanced budget”? My god that is ridiculous! The Republican Party Platform is not worth the paper it is written on unless you want to use it to wipe your ass after taking a shit, or something.
They have lost all credibility in my mind. They talk conservatism sometimes but never practice it. Instead when they are in charge of the government all we get are lip service and more pork and entitlements and bigger government. At best they are only marginally better than the Democrats. It is either Liberal Heavy with the Democrats or Liberal Light with the Republicans.
I have given up on the Republicans as being acceptable. They are no more acceptable than the Democrats.
