Hell of a Guy

A Manifesto, of sorts…

08/27/2012

I am a Republican, and proud of it.

I am not a homophobe, I am a Republican.  I believe in traditional marriage but will not condemn any loving couple that chooses to unite in a religious ceremony, nor will I vote against same-sex marriage rights.  I am not a misogynist, I am a Republican.  I abhor abortion, but am not about to interfere with what a woman decides to do with her body, but I do think it is ridiculous any company or organization should be required to supply anyone with birth control, when abstinence seems to work just as well.  It’s a personal choice.  I am for less government in my life, and I am for a fiscally conservative government.  I am a Republican.  And I am not a member of the NRA, but totally support some restrictions on some types of gun sales, especially semi-automatic weapons.  I am a Republican, and I do not watch NASCAR events and have no favorite NASCAR driver.  I am a proud Republican.  I am not a racist, I am a Republican.  I have never discriminated against anyone because of race, color, creed, or sexual preference or political persuasion.  I recognize we are all connected.  I am not of the religious right, I am a Republican.  I do not attend a church and probably won’t.  I am, however, a spiritual person.  I believe in the God of All Things, and that all things are God.  I am a Republican.

I voted for Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, John McCain and I will vote for Mitt Romney.  I am a Republican.
 
I, as a senior citizen living on a fixed income, fully recognize and realize Social Security and Medicare as we now know it will not survive, and may very well go away in my lifetime leaving me totally dependent on my liberal children for support, especially as our elected officials continue to kick these cans down the road because none of them have the gonads to tell the truth to the American people that these entitlements are in imminent danger of insolvency…save Paul Ryan.  The rest know it but are too much into saving their own jobs, benefits and pensions rather than facing the reality that confronts them and ultimately us.

I believe each and every one of us should pay his/her fair share.  I do not believe the top 1% should pay more than the 20% of the tax burden they now pay.  I do not believe the top 10% should pay more than the 45% of what the US Treasury takes in each year, and I sure as hell don’t think the top 25% should pay more than the 79% it now contributes as long as 45 million Americans pay no income tax at all and some get money back just for breathing.  The current administration can say everyone should pay they “fair share” but their actions don’t support it.  And then there is the supposed 99%, an assemblage of “ne’er do wells” wishing to live off the government dole while vilifying those who are willing to work and be successful. 

With this I will beg off Facebook for a while, at least until after the election.  I am a Republican and want to see our current president voted out.  If that makes me a racist, homophobe, bigot, religious fanatic then so be it, but I beg to differ.  I don’t wish to offend my Liberal friends, relatives or anyone else, but I am a Republican and so very proud of it.

And that is all I have to say about that…

You could not have described my position any better.  Somewhat right of center, fiscal conservative and social moderate.  What this country needs is more of US!!!!!!
