Right... dems are all left wing. I'm a dem and I'm far from left wing. Are all repubs right wing? Most repubs would argue not, and I would agree. Your statement implies that dems are to the left as fascists are to the right, which couldn't be farther from the truth. So supporting gay rights is communist? It would seem that supporting the rights of gays is closely aligned with protecting our gun rights, so why is that a communist thing? Repubs mught have been about small government and small spending in the past, but that is no longer the case. We have new laws like the patriot act and record high defecits caused by a republican government. The big government that the current republican party now endorses (controlling who we marry, what we talk about, revoking the right of habeus corpus, etc.) seems closer to a communist state than most people would like to admit. I don't like that many of the more extreme dems try to gun grab any more than you guys. But how can you be content with a republican party that is now so far from its claimed values simply because it doesn't try to gun-grab? I really wish the Libertarian party was more powerful as they see that equal rights are equal rights and that government should stay the hell out of our bedroom, home, gun safe, and anything else that is rightfully ours.
And Rummy stepped down. That must add insult to injury, no?
