I'm voting Republican because...

Those were the words in the subject line of an email I received from a friend of mine who is one of those folks declaring that if the nominee wasn't Hillary, they would rather vote for McCain. So I was going to pass on watching the video - figuring it was just more justification for what I can only describe as rank stupidity. Then I decided I'd watch it and try one more time to show her how ridiculous she was being.

More after the jump...

Then I began watching and my focus shifted from the email I was already composing in my head in response to her to watching to see just where my issues were in the video. They're almost all there! And I actually laughed out loud at the lesbian couple!

Now, having said all of that, other than entertaining me (and maybe some of you) do you think videos like this have an impact on anyone as far as changing their opinions or even the way they might vote?

No, because the only people who watch them are Democrats or liberals.

But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy them!

I got fooled the first time I saw this posted as well, by a blogger I know to be a staunch Dem. Unfortunately, I have to agree with Alex. Anyone who needs to be convinced by this is likely to hit the "STOP" button pretty fast when they see where the video is headed.

I'm having a good laugh, anyway.

I am sending this to my Hoosier Republican ladies. They love me and promise to watch whatever I send them. They don't write me back for a while, but they love me. Hi Jan, Hi Judy!

Anybody who's deluded enough to vote against their own political interests for a superficial reason such as they're mad that Hillary didn't get the nomination, despite the mounting eveidence of just how bad eight years of GOP control has been for this country, deserves the type of government they get as a result of that decision.

Voting Republican is just as wrong as voting Democratic.

They both support the genocidal oil war, NAFTA, union busting, and tax breaks for the rich. They worked hand in glove to pass DADT and DOMA, junk ENDA and the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes bill and they both oppose same sex marriage and socialized medicine. And don’t bother asking them to vote for a decent $25.00 per hour minimum wage or unemployment compensation at trade union levels. Obama's bigoted ‘spirit advisors’ are no less rancid than McCain’s.

Anyone who votes for either party votes for a long war, a very rapidly declining standard of living and a policy of liberally appeasing bigots. Then we’ll get four-eight more years of the same old crap, which, even if it comes wrapped in pretty tissue paper with a cute ribbon, is still crap. Then the majority of voters will once again find themselves organizing to shovel up the mess made by people who mistakenly voted Democratic/Republican.

You know I am Trans but I am not a liberal or a Democrat but I will let you have your fun during this campaign. When you however insist that because we share a similar gender or sexual orientation I must vote like you because were the same forget it I am voting for McCain for my own reasons which have nothing to do with the fact im Bi and Trans I do not vote with my body but what I believe and the liberal Democrats have nothing in common with me the Moderate Blue dogs and the few conservative Democrats that are left in your party those folks I have a lot in common with but I refuse to join a party who sees me only for my gender and sexual orientation! Many here also would love to see the Blue Dogs run out of the Democratic Party as well word of warning just look what the “neocons” tried to do to the Republicans. If you secede in that you will be a poorer party for it. Decent means many things so remember that before you scream off with there heads.

The last eight years has forever invalidated er that BS 'Both parties are the same' red herring.

Being Transgender was only a small portion of why I'm a Yellow Dog Democrat. I came to the logical conclusion thanks to long, bitter experience as an African-American who watched in horror as her progressive birth state was turned into a laboratory for failed conservative policies and the hardball amoral tactics they'd use to seize power.

GOP policies not only do not help my people, they are wrong for this country. They are anti-Black anti-civil rights and anti-working class. The sad part is that the GOP as currently constituted doesn't care.

At least I can reason with the Democrats since my people have major influence in that party. That's more than I can say about the GOP.
