Absolutely! This party has devolved into a dysfunctional, corporatist, pro-oligarchic, xenophobic, zealous, misogynist and inhumane entity. If Abraham Lincoln were here, there would be tears in his eyes. We've got to vote out these bastards this November!
Totally! I'm sick of the partisanship! You hear Ted Cruz pontificate about "standing up for principles" But don't mean anything if you obstruct legislation, even for the most basic of governmental functions. And the DNC won't leave me and my Dad alone with their fundraising pleas online. We can't afford to donate to them, they're bleeding their base dry.

If Republicans are racist then I'm Batman! And last time I checked I'm not... Democrats are the biggest racist in the world. I have never had a Republican call someone out on race, but when my friend (who is black mind you) said he supported McCain during the 2008 elections, you know what they called him? A House N****r... I have never seen a people more idiotic and bigoted then the Democrat. They are the only one's who hold race as a THING to think of. Republicans like us have MLK and Alan West and many others. The NBRA (National Black Republican Association) was started to fight Democrat racism. When we Republicans fought the Democrats in 2008 and 2012, it was about character. You asses made it about race.
It happens countless times in the history classes of middle school, high school, and college, when they study the late 18th century in America. A stuck-up (and probably misinformed) history teacher/professor smugly informs his students that even though Republicans led the charge against slavery after the Civil War, the poles have since reversed and Democrats are now in favor of racial equality while Republicans are closeted members of the KKK. However, any historian truly worth his or her salt knows how ridiculous this notion is. We don't even need to look that far back in American history to prove this to be false. The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s is a perfect example. Was it the racist Republicans trying to stop civil rights legislation from being passed? On the contrary, it was Democrats in Congress who proved to be its biggest obstacle. Famously in 1964, a group of 19 senators, 18 of whom were Democrats, managed to filibuster the bill for 54 days. Not recent enough? Consider the "racism" behind the appointments of the only black member of the Supreme Court, the first black Secretary of State, and the first black female Secretary of State. All of these were appointed by Republican presidents. In fact, when it comes to slavery, the right to vote, ending segregation and many other issues, any careful study of American history will turn up Republicans fighting for equal rights for African Americans while Democrats try their best to maintain the status quo. So why does this myth persist so much? The answer is easy in this case. Republicans are associated with conservatives, and conservatives generally oppose programs such as government assistance and affirmative action. This is not because they are racists, but because they believe in the principles of self-sufficiency and equality. No candidate for a job or a school should be judged by the color of his skin over the content of his character. Sound familiar?
I'm white, really don't care what homosexuals do (I think there is more important things to do instead of legalizing same-sex marriage at the moment), Catholic but not very religious, female, and STILL a Republican
