    Come on, tell the truth, today only 20% of Americans are registered as Republicans. Of course, if I had been so (stupid, scared, ignorant, greedy) foolish as to vote for Bush twice, I'd be embarrassed too, but I'd man up and admit I wasted my vote.

    The foundation of this Republic is not some stupid "my team vs your team" football game. Is this best you can muster for intellectual debate? With the numerous problems facing this Republic, this is the question pressing on your mind?

    It is no surprise as most people who know me from other boards, that I was registered as a Republican and left the party early in Bush's second term but was unhappy through much of the first term.

    Interesting response, and open to debate. But, were you registered as a Republican until George W. Bush completely fucked up? Did you, or did you not vote for him?
    Simple question, man up.

    I did not vote for President Bush either time. What I said was true and you know it. Freedom and Liberty is not about political parties or allegiance thereto.

    You want to play some stupid gotcha game, so you can try and score a political party touchdown. And if you do, you can yell "my teams crap doesn't stink as bad as your teams crap" song.

    Is Freedom and Liberty a joke to you?
