    You know, I said this partially seriously in another thread but then I realized I think it's true. I cannot think of a single thing the GOP has done effectively or done correctly in the last decade. Aside from pushing religion, war and rape what exactly have these people done for Americans? You also have to look at the colossal failures of the Tea Party and John Boehner. Sarah Palin running away from her elected office like a silly twat for money and fame. The hilarious trainwreck that was the Romney campaign. And creating a North Korean like mindset where everything is the strawman liberals' fault.

    Please enlighten me, what has the GOP done that has been positive for this nation?

    And please keep in mind, I'm not attacking conservatives or conservative ideology in this thread. I'm genuinely curious what the Republican Party has done that's been good.

    Republicans have done well in non national elections.

    They have demonized math and science which furthers a pro business cause I THINK. Now I somewhat understand needing to keep the economy going to fight the Chinese and how environment and labor cost CAN slow it down.

    Um..... I am grasping straws. I support the death penalty as I think it is a deterrent and it is still legal in most of the same states I believe....

    I believe folks need a fear of starving to be motivated and they control the compassionate bleeding hearts a bit.

    Ey, I tried!

    Republicans over the last decade have successfully backed the Patriot Act and I THINK helped keep GITMO open?

    What states would that be since every state in the union has a projected budgetary shortfall for 2013?

    States Continue to Feel Recession

    You expect a serious answer when in your OP you say that Republicans have pushed rape?




    My serious answer is "thank you for making it so easy for me to see that there's no percentage in opening your threads in future." :thup:

    So you don't have any answers, you just want to get emotional and run away...

    Strived to limit the growth of government, attempted to curtail the intrusion of the government in peoples lives, Exposed the financial reality that the sacred entitlement system was not sustainable and destined to collapse. Strived to protect the constitution and bill of rights, waged a war against terrorism, attempted to secure out boarders. Attempted to audit the federal home loan system, presented before congress a budget. Provided the leadership and muscle to back up the UN's resolutions and failure to address the threat posed by Iraq. As for the strawman effect, maybe you should read some of the comments your Messiah and his devote followers stated over the past decade.
