Reasons for Supporting Republicans

VotingRepublicanCourtesy of Digg, I just saw a very well made video titled I’m Voting Republican.  In just three-and-a-half minutes of YouTube content, the video captures the essence of most Pro-Republican arguments.  It’s entertaining and information.  Here are some quotes (apologies in advance for minor typos).  I’m voting Republican because…

“… if the major pharmaceutical companies’ bottom lines are healthy, then I feel healthy, too.”

“… women just can’t be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies… never, ever, ever.”

“I just don’t feel I deserve health insurance”

[Black couple]: “… because we like a conservative majority in the Supreme Court…”

[Gay woman] “… because I need to be told who I can love”

“… I really enjoy being screwed by utility companies.”

“… we need more minorities in prison.”

“… because Texas needs more billionaires.”

“… sometimes the Constitution is just one big inconvenient headache.”

“… I think the whole world should be run by one big corporation…”

“… because all other countries are inferior to us, and we should start as many wars as we need to keep it that way.”

It’s good stuff, but not quite good enough to keep John McCain from running as a serious Presidential candidate.  The end of the video is a great call to action. The site allows you to register to vote and provides links to some excellent books and the Get Involved page provides some good recommendations.  Now, let’s see if Americans can truly get what we deserve.
