    My Thoughts On Republicans

    Republicans are all scumbags. They don't care about the people. All they care about is corruption, bigotry, greed and power. If you happen to be a Republican by any chance, I'm sorry if I offended you but this is how I truly feel. By the way I'm speaking about Republicans in general, not the election.

    There are no absolutes when it comes to groups of people. To argue that there are is to commit the logical fallacy (error in thinking) of "hasty generalization":

    This particular fallacy is the root of most prejudice, and creates more woe than most other logical fallacies, which tend to be merely annoying, and lead to lousy thinking.

    Also, consider this - if you feel the need to pre-apologize, it might be a good idea to take your finger off the trigger, and reconsider what you are about to post.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    I'm sorry. I should've used words more carefully.

    LOL - replace "all" with "some," or even "many," and you're golden.

    Personally, as someone who self identifies as a scumbag, it is troubling to be associated with the Republican Party.

    Well I'm a democrat and to be fair. I believe that the Democrats is considered the light side of the force while the Republican consider the dark side of the force.

    Yeah, if only things were that simple. But since this isn't the authorized thread I'm not going to get into it here lol.

    I've met many good Republicans (And Democrats). However, the actual politicians are quite...annoying.

    I think Republican were great, when they cared about progress and not about appealing to the bigoted and/or anti-progress crowd.
