Why it Matters

BelleofLiberty lays it out in plain, blistering language - this election isn't just about what we're doing. It's about who we are.

Any conservatives reading this may think, "Hey, does she want every office in the U.S. to be held by Dems or something?" Now? YES.

And I'll tell you why, in a brief lunchtime rant. This is not your grandfather's GOP. No. It's a cabal of disgusting and hateful people.

And those disgusting and hateful people have been enabled and empowered by people deceived by decades-old impressions & marketing.

Newsflash: I used to vote Republican a good 1/2 the time. And hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. That party deserves to die after this.

What should be a debate about HOW we help Americans live better lives through our self-government has become a "should we?" WASTE OF TIME.

The fact that GOP bloodsuckers and haters showed up and took government paychecks to NOT represent people and help them disgusts me.

So yeah, I've about had it with that party and I abso-frickin-lutely want to burn it to the ground, figuratively. To REPUDIATE it. SCORN it.

As many stories I've tweeted & conversations I've had even in my red-red-red neck of the woods show... the GOP has lost "WE THE PEOPLE."

Nobody EVER had a resounding defeat coming more justifiably than that rudderless ball of rage and cynicism. So let it go DOWWWWN.

02/10/2012 00:48:09 WIB
J @LibertyBelleJ

Yeah. I'm angry. I've managed to look solemn, sad & delicately horrified by "let him die" and "not my job to care about those people."

But inside, I am positively screaming that people can talk that way about their countrymen, and I say again, YOU ARE NO PATRIOTS.

In fact, I'm having a hard time considering SOME of you to be functioning human beings. You're a cancer on this nation, & you will NOT win.

So just in case still wondered where I stand on the viability of the last several years of GOP rhetoric... *chuh* NOW YA KNOW.

02/10/2012 00:51:10 WIB
J @LibertyBelleJ

I'll smile when it benefits my community for me to do so, even if I am horrified. I'll listen to rage sympathetically... until it runs out.

J @LibertyBelleJ

I will go forth and do whatever I can to absorb, blunt and transform the ugliness I have heard from the mouths of my neighbors.

02/10/2012 00:53:10 WIB
J @LibertyBelleJ

I will do everything in my power to uncover the common thread of humanity, aspiration, & community spirit that once made this country great.

02/10/2012 00:53:46 WIB
J @LibertyBelleJ

Even if I must grit my teeth sometimes to do it. I will. Because it matters. And as Martin Luther King, Jr. said so well...

J @LibertyBelleJ

It isn't easy though. And it costs us all to bite back the harsh words of reciprocal hate. BECAUSE THEY WOULD SOLVE NOTHING.

Pardon me, conservatives, if I laugh, darkly, at the utterly repugnant things you say, look around, and think, "Is everyone hearing this?"

In those evil moments, one has to doubt one's OWN sanity, seeing others SIT, QUIETLY, OR WORSE, CHEER IN AGREEMENT. DEAR GOD.

J @LibertyBelleJ

Yeah. This one matters. If Romney were to manage to fool this country, if this country EMBRACED that casual cruelty, gave it power? OMG.

02/10/2012 00:57:56 WIB
J @LibertyBelleJ

This one really is a contest between good and evil, to me. Even if the execution is less than perfect, at least this side DOES have love.

J @LibertyBelleJ

It's difft at local levels, of course. One-on-one, in-person. But I despise what the GOP has chosen to represent, the words they've spoken.

J @LibertyBelleJ

I have little respect for anyone who still wears that label, after all that's been said. Who hasn't stepped forth to police his or her own.
