    Well, looks like my gut instinct was right. Local politicians started throwing cops and firemen under the bus in 2010 on the wave of the tea party drunkenness. Now, Mitt Romney flat out says he doesn't give a shit about....oh....around 150,000,000 Americans.

    I wasn't part of the "99%" movement.

    But I am part of the 47%. I was part of it when I was a cop. I'm part of it now in my new (and far safer) job. LOTS of military members are part of the 47%. And teachers. And firemen. And stay at home moms. And nurses. And daycare workers. And pet shelter workers. And tradesmen....carpenters, electricians, steel workers, construction workers....you know, the unsung contributors that keep America humming.

    Yep. I thank Mitt Romney:clap2:

    Why? Voting Democrat in 2012 was a hard choice. I made it almost purely on the anti-cop, anti-firemen trend many local GOP'ers have shifted to. But now....Romney reflected the self-satisfied, pure arrogance that many of the extreme right show now. Absolute selfishness.

    And as a Christian, and an American who has lived his whole life as part of the 47%, I find that attitude disgusting.

    And I salute Mitt Romney. Thats all we ever asked for out of a politician. It took some staffer at the ballroom of the $50,000-a-plate dinner to secretly record it for it to come out......but we got HONESTY. Thats all.

    We know where he stands now, and where his supporters stand. Vote accordingly.

    President Obama....if he wins, and I'll have voted for him.....man, you have to do better in the 2nd term. We have major problems, and you're the lesser of two evils.

    FYI Willow. You're part of that 47% as well. Not that you care about being hypocritical.

    Why would I shit on a cop car? Thats disgusting, and the people who do that disgust me. The Occupy movement disgusts me. Maybe you can't read "Im not the 99%". But I'm part of the group, mathematically, that is the 47% Mitt doesn't give a fuck about.

    Yes, I can't afford to join a country club.

    Yes, I'm second-homeless. And third-homeless.

    No, I dont have money stored offshore. Unless you count the cash I lost in my wallet that fell overboard on a cruise back in 04.



    These radical righties are pushing more and more people away from them. It's not that the Dems are attracting us. It's that shit like Mitt's attitude are making us sick, and incapapble of voting GOP.
