It really does not matter how I voted this November. Yes, I am happy about the election results but that does not mean I am a bleeding heart liberal. In fact, I am very moderate and even voted for McCain against Bush before the world was put into a deep freeze 12 years ago. You see, it is the moderates that get things done. This includes both democrats and republicans.  It is the moderates that have compassion and see the bigger picture; moderates from both sides come together and find a compromise that is mutually beneficial for ALL the people of our country.

Oh, so you defend George Bush? His presidency is so controversial even the Republican Party did not invite him to this year’s GOP convention… huh…

How soon do we forget that America is a nation of immigrants, a mélange of cultures and spiritual faiths. If you have a problem with that notion then you are living in the wrong country.

Do you know what the fundamental problem with the Republican Party is? Their voice is fed and led by irrational, Bible thumping crazies that do not care about the poor minorities that are part of the backbone of this great nation. I am not talking about the deadbeats that republicans say lay around doing drugs and buying cigs with their food stamps. I am talking about the social services and help that is available for victims of hurricane Sandy; People do lose their jobs, their homes and their dignity and it is not because of Obama fueled laziness. I think I would shoulder more blame on greedy corporate America. I agree it is not a perfect system but you have to be a team and not a tyrant.  You have to have compassion for those less fortunate and put systems in place that protect spiritual freedom, minorities and women.

Crazy nut bag case in point:

Ted Nugent’s Tweets in regard to Obama winning the Presidency: “Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters have a president to destroy America. What subhuman varmint believes others must pay for their obesity booze cellphones birthcontrol abortions & lives. Goodluk America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools”.

Donald Trump called for a “revolution.” Former “SNL” cast member Victoria Jackson said “America died.” And born-again Christian actor Stephen Baldwin tweeted that God’s wrath is now upon the U.S.  Really?

These people are crazy… They think their God is superior, that all poor people are abusing our social services and that our country lacks a soul. Who do you think is really going to go to hell? Fortunately for them, I do not believe in hell…

Now, I know many fine, compassionate republicans. Most of my family is republican and though there are some political differences there is not this type of crude, cold indifference I see from these fringe crazies. The problem is these people like Rick Santorum, Paul Broun,Todd Akin and Ted Nugent have the loudest voices – BECAUSE THEY ARE CRAZY! People that are crazy have loud voices. These people are afraid of blacks on the street; Mexicans spilling over the border. Do you know who you should be afraid of?  The crazies in your political party like Sarah Palin and Michael Bachmann.

Just word of advice to the Republican Party: Let moderation be your loudest voice. Guess, what, whites are not the majority anymore. If you have a problem with that, then you are racist. Jesus is not the only path to Salvation and religion should not be a benchmark for people’s fundamental rights. If you are that pious, go start a Quaker colony in Siberia.  America is changing and if the Republican Party does not wake up, they will never see the oval office again. Here is an idea: Maybe break the Republican Party into two new parties; one for the sane moderates and another for the insane nut bags… Tea bags?

When people in Georgia are writing in Charles Darwin instead of voting for a right-wing reborn Christian, you know something is not right…

I like this country… I like having political parties that work together and settle their differences. Like like democrats and republicans… By the way, I may have voted for Colin Powell or Condi Rice; even Chris Christie – all moderate Republicans… but Romney was the best you could do? Don’t be mad at the country, be mad at yourself…

BTW: Getting political does not sell books…  …but in my defense, I do not write self-help books for the money. I write them with the genuine effort to help people who want to be helped. If that means I am a democrat then so be it…
