My darling HillBuzz boyz, don't just leave the Democrats, JOIN the Republicans

by CynthiaYockey on November 11, 2009

I am up way past my bedtime, but I just got quite the shot of adrenaline from seeing in my newsfeed the following headline from HillBuzz: “We are very close to no longer being Democrats.”

My darlings — I love you with all my heart — as Ronald Reagan said — you are not leaving the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party is leaving you.

I was a lifelong liberal and Democrat until the 2008 presidential campaign. As soon as I found out about Obama’s 20-year association with Rev. Wright, I knew he would be bad for homosexuals, women and Jews. After the nomination was stolen from Hillary, I became a fiscal conservative in the process of doing my research on the issues because I thought my Democrat friends would respect my choice to vote for McCain/Palin if I could explain it in more detail. Stop laughing.

I changed my registration from Democrat to Republican in December 2008 because I am a passionate person, I fight with a team and I want to be able to vote in the primaries. You are all too passionate to be independents. You fight with a team. Please come join me and register as Republican — if you support capitalism and liberty, that’s enough common ground.

As you know, it is Republican Colin Powell calling for the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” It is Republican Dick Cheney supporting full equality for homosexuals. There are plenty of Republicans who would be become true and staunch advocates for our equality because this is in tune with their ideals of liberty, if only they see that we love the same founding principles of America that they do. So — please — don’t just leave the Democratic Party — join the Republican Party. You may be centrists and moderates, but you are not wishy-washy enough to be independents. There’s a place for you in the Republican Party. Fight with a team.

    The Religious Wrong got a foothold in the GOP because we as a community allowed it. We put all our eggs in one basket and hoped for change, dating back to the 1970s. The results of this support-one-party-at-all-costs strategy are documented by history, yet HRC (which should be called the Homosexual Rip-off Campaign) endorsed an anti-gay marriage Democrat over a pro-gay marriage Republican in NY-23.

    Now that the Orwellian “National Organization For Marriage” plans to bully pro-gay marriage Republicans with primary challenges, proving they hate gays more than they want to prevent another step towards socialism. These “people” need to be stopped. They can’t have my party, they can’t have my rights, and they can’t have my country.

    I’m fascinated that the Jeremiah Wright imbroglio was defining for you, because it was for me and my husband, too.

    My husband comes from a family of democrats, and he had voted that way all of his life. Clinton’s behavior in office embarrassed him, and he started to look at alternatives to voting for democrats simply because they were democrats. In the end, he discovered that he was fiscally conservative, and more libertarian on many social issues.

    My views pretty much mirror his, although we do disagree on some points. Bottom line: we were disgusted with our choices for the presidency last year. I can honestly say that, as a result of the potential choice between McCain and Hillary, we were both open-minded about Obama, and researched him as much as we were able to in light the media blackout about his past.

    That silence is what made me mighty suspicious, but still I did not dismiss him, and neither did my husband. When I learned about Wright, I was disgusted, but thought that one could attribute Obama’s membership in that church to mere political opportunism, and I couldn’t condemn Obama for doing what most politicians do.

    Until I discovered that he took his kids to that church. And Ayers was a family friend, not just “some guy in the neighborhood.” There were even allegations that Ayers and Dohrn were occasional baby sitters for the Obama kids.

    That revelation, combined with Obama’s lack of experience, abysmal voting record (when he didn’t vote “present”), what he actually said on the campaign trail, and other unsavory associations made it impossible for me to vote for him.

    One does not expose one’s children to hatred of that sort unless one actually believes in it.

    Attmay – ouch!

    In a previous post, Cynthia mentioned that she believed that love – love for gay family members and friends – is what would change the tide of public opinion when it comes to gay marriage, and I think she’s right.

    The “religious right” (whatever that is) has the right to representation, has the right to lobby, has the right to be heard, just as do advocates of gay marriage. Just because people want to preserve certain traditions does not mean that they “hate gays.” Yes, some people do, I’m not denying that. But to think that most objections are founded in hatred, instead of a commitment to traditional beliefs, is a bit narcissistic.

    We are all going to have to learn to live together and unite for common causes if we want to save this country from going down the tubes.

    One Cynthia Yockey is worth a million Perez Hiltons. Once people become familiar with the beauty, intelligence, and integrity of someone like Cynthia…….well, it’s the best cure for what ails us as a party.

    • Ad rem,

      Thank you for your kind and generous praise!

    I have to totally agree with you sister! Being registered as a Repulican has never come into question with me. I have been disappointed in the party’s movement, but I believe liberty and capitalism is still found in the Repulican Party. I have not become an independent because I wanted to vote in caucases and primaries. Then if someone comes along you find yourself most aligned with, you vote for them. If you can do it in the Primary, your voice has more power.

    I think the religious nutters to which Attmay refers represent only a minute, tiny fraction of the GOP. My 76 year old mom may have at one time fit in that religious nutter mold. But, frankly, this nation has evolved, and most people have accepted, some reluctantly, admittedly, that people cannot be conformed to a likeness of which you approve. That includes my mom. She, like a majority of Conservatives don’t give 2 flying figs what you do, or who you do it with. Just keep government money, OUR money out of it, and we are fine.

  • Just two more battered Democrat wives swearing to leave that bastard party… as soon as they can get over their terror of life in the world outside…

  • Stinky–I applaud your insight that just because religious people have a traditional view of marriage doesn’t mean their homophobic or hate the gays and thought it was refreshing. I was so glad to hear you say it. I have said the very same thing on my blog and in various articles for quite awhile now. Many proponents of keeping marriage between a man and woman view it from a sociological perspective and not a homophobic perspective.

    I discovered that when I actually picked up a book by Ann Coulter and read her analysis of her opposition to gay marriage. That’s not to say I agree with it…but, it made me realize that many view the heterosexual family as the bedrock of society because it does produce children…and therein lies the difference. I do, however, believe everyone should be treated equally under the law and have often discussed keeping marriage a religious issue and getting it out of the hands of the government altogether both straight and gay. Equality for benefits sake can be handled in other ways. I could go on…but, trying to discuss in a post is difficult.

    And I actually think the devise rhetoric with which the gay Left tries to further their agenda (not to mention the bad public behavior show in parades at times) does more to hurt our cause than help it.

    I also welcome any gay men and women over to the Right side of the aisle. It really is not as scary as you think. There are wonderful and loving men and women over on this side. Don’t be afraid to shed the veil the Left has put over your eyes for so long. And to add to Cynthia…I would say–study conservatism which is our Founding philosophy. As we’ve all learned the parties are beginning to mean very little…though I would hope conservatives get hold of the Republican Party again rather than Progressive liberals hiding as Republicans.

    Tammy Bruce has excellent thoughts on the entire subject and deserves a definite reading!

    If any gay men and women reading this want to chat further with me and make a new friend shoot me an email! Cynthia has an awesome blog and maybe between the two of us we can make it less scary for you! 😉

    “Just keep government money, OUR money out of it, and we are fine.”

    Of course, same sex couples are forced to pay extra in taxes that heterosexuals do not because of the tax benefits they get from marriage.

    No one is fighting to force the state to make people like us. We are fighting to forbid the states from denying us the right to seek marriage license.

    Homosexuality is not going away, ever. The science is on our side. And our relationships cannot be pushed back into the closet. Thus, if the state feels the need to subsidize heterosexual marriages through tax credits, then

    As for heterosexual marriage and family being the “bedrock of society,” the creation of children is an act. It is the rearing of children, whether their existence results from the sex act of those raising them or others, that is the real bedrock of society, and all research has proven gay couples competent to do so. But what about childless heterosexual couples? Do they not deserve the right to be joined in matrimony as well?

    “Thus, if the state feels the need to subsidize heterosexual marriages through tax credits, then”

    Sorry, I forgot to finish this…

    Thus, if the state feels the need to subsidize heterosexual marriages through tax credits, then why should gay couples have to pay more?
