Name one.

I would like any Republicans to come forth with a selfless or humane act the party has committed in the 20 years.

Can't use "Tear Down this wall" as W.'s trying to start it all up again.

Can't use "We gave em $300.... " cuz that's just plain lame and I used it on Car Insurance in two months.

Can't use "We lowered taxes" because... the average Joe can't afford property taxes

Can't use "we keep the world safe" cuz terrorism has jumped up 300% under your watch.

Can't use "Terry Schiavo" cuz you cut her medicaid.

You can use.. Dave benefits from Stem Cell reserch..

Oh wait... no you can't..

Gimme one... I want to understand.

Tell you what. Take a look at my blog, "Stop the Republicans." Then imagine what this country would look like without them.

Hey this Lone Ranger guy posted here and invited me to see his blog, which I did.

However his blog doesn't allow comments... go figure A Republican not interested in listening to anyone else points of view.

I am not Repub "hatah". I think there are good Repubs. I think the party has done some great things through out history. However the current state of the Republican Party is in contridiction to values of the 65% of the American People according to recent polls.

To be fair he gave me a list of good things the Repubs have done in the last 25 years. (Well actually since 1865 and I am arguing the "Current Quarter Century Only so I am just giving you the last part.)

For the last 25 years (1980 on ny comments have my name first.)

CRACKPOT- 1981-1986 This new virus comes out that seems to be affecting gay men. Since it involves predominantly gay men, they ignore it and hopes it goes away. The Republican Party have let millions die long, painful deaths because of bigotry. See New Book by Jesse Helms in which he calls not doing something about AIDS the biggest mistake of career.

September 15, 1981
President Ronald Reagan establishes the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, to increase African-American participation in federal education programs. (CRACKPOT QUESTION: When Reagan later announced the budget a few years later didn't he say there were going to be cuts in every aspect of government except defense... how was this program effected?)

June 29, 1982
President Ronald Reagan signs 25-year extension of 1965 Voting Rights Act (Crackpot Press: I think ANY politician would have signed this)

August 10, 1988 (CRACKPOT NOTE: This is the first entry of the last 25 years, nothing between 1980-1988)
President Ronald Reagan signs Civil Liberties Act of 1988, compensating Japanese-Americans for deprivation of civil rights and property during World War II internment ordered by FDR. (CRACKPOT NOTE: The internment of the Japanese Prisoners was a horrible chapter in our nation's history. Yes the Bush Admin decided to repeat it)

November 21, 1991
President George H. W. Bush signs Civil Rights Act of 1991 to strengthen federal civil rights legislation (CRACKPOT NOTE: This was good, however the current Admin is trying to disband Affirmative Action)

August 20, 1996
Bill authored by U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari (R-NY) to prohibit racial discrimination in adoptions, part of Republicans’ Contract With America, becomes law (Crackpot: This is a good thing. Period.)

April 26, 1999
Legislation authored by U.S. Senator Spencer Abraham (R-MI) awarding Congressional Gold Medal to civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks is transmitted to President. Crackpot Question: Why did this come out of Missouri, not Alabama?)

January 25, 2001
U.S. Senate Republican Policy Committee declares school choice to be “Educational Emancipation” (Crackpot Note: Equality is not cutting Education Programs for EVERYONE!)

March 19, 2003
Republican U.S. Representatives of Hispanic and Portuguese descent form Congressional Hispanic Conference (Crackpot Question: What are their achievements?)

May 23, 2003
U.S. Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) introduces bill to establish National Museum of African American History and Culture

February 26, 2004
Hispanic Republican U.S. Rep. Henry Bonilla (R-TX) condemns racist comments by U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL); she had called Asst. Secretary of State Roger Noriega and several Hispanic Congressmen “a bunch of white all look alike to me” (Crackpot Press: Also in 2004 Bush Addresses the NAACP "I am hear to ask for your vote," which is greeted by laughter.)
