I'm a huge Obama supporter, and while I'm not the type to wear my political views on my chest, if I was going to buy any gear it would be from his official campaign website so the money could help fund the campaign.

Let me rephrase that. I think broadcasting your political views via clothing, pins, bumper stickers, etc is tacky.

Ugh. I think broadcasting your political views is low-class, and tacky. There are other ways to support your candidate and NOT look like a complete idiot. Cabaker, lol! I always love your comments :ROTFL:

McCain is not a great debater, or that is my opinion at least. I think buttons are pretty harmless, even when they are stupid. My boyfriends father, a successful 62 year old Republican, has voted Democratic twice in his life time; for Kerry in 2004 and Obama in the primary in New Hampshire. He believes this war is ruining us financially, and is impossible to sustain. He has built himself up from scratch, being the first of his family to go to college, and he struck up in the Reagan years, and he is a quintessential Republican. But he also believes that Bush has ringed us into financial ruin, and that voting for a candidate who wows to continue these economic policies is out of the question. He might be one of few, and I'm not saying this is a big trend among Republicans, but I'm pretty sure he is not the only one. With that said, I have the a lot of respect for aware and knowledgeable conservatives. I don't think you guys are a evil makers and stupid rednecks, and I'm sure we all want the best for our country and families. Even if we disagree on the approach most times; once in a blue moon we might agree on something too! ;)

I think its too early for many Republicans to say they've jumped shipped. A lot of are still pissed the McCain got the nom, I'm not a huge McCain fan, but when it comes down to it, I'll still throw my vote his way and I think a lot of Republicans will once they've calmed down. Plus I cannot wait, CANNOT WAIT for the Obama/McCain debates... McCain will clean the floor with him! yeehee!

Sweet!! First time ever that I'd actually consider putting a bumper sticker on my car.. I hate those damn things but I lurve me some Obama. One of my good friends is a registered Republican (extremely conservative, to boot) and he is voting for Obama. Truth be told he 'hates' all of the candidates but if it comes down to McCain vs Obama, he's going the liberal route. I don't think that pin is trying to say reps for Obama are cleared of a disease.. Just that they believe him to be the best candidate. I absolutely agree :P

I have to say, I have much respect for you. Again, I may not agree with all of your view points, but you have as clear of an understanding of your views as anyone following politics can ( :) )and appreciate you sharing them with me.

Well, I have never been socially conservative, so my Republican-ness was always in question, I suppose. ;) I do wish there was a candidate (or a new party?) that was kind of Old School Republican, though. Then I wouldn't have to spend so much time undecided and confused!

Thank you very much Bethany. I can understand how you got to where you are, I may disagree with you on points, but I can understand your logic in your movement. I believe it is also fair to say that some of your values have become less conservative in your support of certain viewpoints.

I'd still be a bit weary of Obama, he is the most liberal person in the Senate. If you notice he very rarely talks about the issues at his rallies, only really in the debates. I think its because he's trying to come off as a moderate when he really isn't. BTW, I'm not chastising him for not talking issues, he's a great speaker if he can get votes on that, then hell yea! I wouldn't talke issues either!

I'm a registered Republican because I'm from MS, and that's just what you do. lol No, really, I like the Republican ideals of small government and conservative fiscal policies. When I was 18 and registering to vote, I knew I liked my Republican mayor and our Republican congressman and senator. However, in the last election I voted more by the candidate than by party affiliation. I find more and more that the Republican party is losing touch with its original principles that I liked so much, and the focus lately has been on a war I disapprove of and socially conservative issues that I disagree with. So there ya go. I'm a Obama supporter because his policies make sense- reducing tax cuts we couldn't really afford to have and shuffling money around in more useful ways, sensible ideas for fixing the mess in Iraq and immigration reform, and transparency in government, especially. He has some great ideas, but I acknowledge that Dems are not in any way "small government," but neither are the Republicans at this point. Though I'd prefer the states have more power, the programs Obama suggests are quite good regardless of how they're handled (through state or federal agencies, I mean). Whew, that was long! I hope I answered your question fully, M3.

That pin pisses me off. Its like saying to people "I once had a disease but now I'm cured"... I can just see the reactions "Oh you were a republican?" cue sad face like you said you have chicken pox "Yep, I was a Republican once, but then I got some ointment and it cleared right up!"

M3 - These will sell to people who probably aren't really Republicans (ie don't agree with the majority of the party's views), but want people to think a bunch of Republicans support Obama. Sneaky sneaky!
mymellowman mymellowman 9 years
If you don't mind, would you clarify why you are registered Republican and why you are supporting Obama?
bethany21 bethany21 9 years
M3- :wave: I am a registered Republican and an Obama supporter.
mymellowman mymellowman 9 years
I'm not saying there aren't any at all, but I don't know any Republicans who are for Obama. It really makes no sense to me.
