Centered Citizen - I love your post, but especially your analogy of supporting a terrible team just because you own the jersey - it's really funny but totally true! I may have to borrow that one from you... ; >

I wouldn't swap my Jersey for anything! I have done research on your team, and you minds well say you are a communist, socialist, anti american! Yes your party was the party of slavery!! Thank God my team's Leader stepped up and fought your team, yes I am talking about Abraham Lincoln Republican! Did you know that your party passed the Jim Crow laws? Did you know your party blocked black kids from attending school? Did you know your heralded member of Congress Robert Byrd was a big wig and a recruiter for the KKK? Yes and he fought the Republicans every step of the way when they passed the civil rights act! Did you know the Planned Parenthood that your party supports, has slaughtered more people than, if you combined all the deaths from every war that ever took place! I bet you didn't know that! Food for thought!
A CONCERNED CITIZEN November 10, 2011 at 02:32 PM
That is why, I could never support your party! Please don't try and blame Republicans for anyting, your President has spent more money than every president from George Washington through George Bush! I bet you didn't know that! See I believe in self reliance, I don't believe in raising people's taxes because they are more successful! That is not in our Constitution and not the American Way!! I do understand that there are people who will alwalys need assistance and that i fine! What I do not agree with is creating a Nanny state, that is not what my Great Grandfather, Grandfather, or Father fought for when they went to battle for your rights!

You are too angry to understand the words I wrote. You keep saying 'your party'. If you are as intelligent as you think you are, read my name, and try to understand my post. I don't pick candidates based on what others bearing the same 'jersey' have done for a hundred years prior. I am able to look at what they are doing TODAY and make decisions based on their actions. The irony is that my post tried to make that point about you, and it took you two posts to prove that I am right. Face it, if Repub candidates were revealed to be Nazis, you would close your eyes and ears to the truth and vote for them because they were REPUBLICAN. Did you know that many of the elected officials in Bloomingdale, including one of our recent Mayors were actually Republicans at the national level even though they ran locally on the Democratic ticket? Why? Because the county Republicans control the local Republican party and choose the candidates, positions, and in our case even the Lawyer that costs 3x as much and increases taxes. That's OK by you because he is a Republican lawyer, and it's OK when Republican's raise taxes because they wear the same jersey. Did you take the same logic class as Yogi Berra in high school? This is about the podunk town of Bloomingdale, not the national history of American politics, so get with it, or just move on your way, so the rest of us can continue the real conversation about improving our town with WHICHEVER party is going to do the best job!

Wow....brilliant! Now, can we get on with what needs to be done in Bloomingdale and let those who want to just vent and grind personal axes find some other forum? There are a lot of important issues going on NOW--not back when Lincoln was president--and it's going to take a lot of getting along with one another to solve them.
