Zealot…”a person who has very strong feelings about something (such as religion or politics) and who wants other people to have those feelings…”
That’s what Webster’s dictionary defines as those who are running away with the Republican Party…and trying to do the same with our government.
Our government. Not their government. Not the president’s government.
A coming together of contrasting ideologies for the good of all…not for the good of a handful.
Where I might have entertained the idea of a Republican president, Boehner’s resignation as Speaker of the House cemented my vote for a Democratic president. Second in line for the presidency, Boehner, the most powerful Republican according to the constitution…if he has no faith in the Republicans…why should I?
By his action, Boehner voted against his own party. I cast my vote with him…
…i’m sure i’m not alone.
I just wonder what the Democrats will say and do. It’s an interesting race this time. 🙂
I can’t imagine that the upcoming Democratic debate will be as interesting as the Republican on was. However I am curious to hear Bernie Sanders speak…a product of the Hippie era, I think. He’s probably saying all the right things; whether or not he can handle the presidency is another thing. Obama said all the right things, but was thwarted from enacting much of what he wanted. Considering the racial divide, not to mention the political one wrought by the Tea Partiers, I think Obama’s done fine. As a black president, I think he opened up “Pandora’s box.” Not necessarily a bad thing. All that was festering beneath the surface is finally out in the open. Now we HAVE to deal with it. No more closeting…racial prejudice, gun killings, shenanigans of the uber-wealthy, etc. I don’t think any president since Franklin Roosevelt has had so much “on his plate” than Obama. hugs…
