Political Parties & The Program
« on: September 23, 2006, 06:27:44 PM »
First off, I will state that I dislike both Democrats and Republicans equally and for different reasons. I consider myself a non-partisan; I'll never register as one or the other. Now, I fully acknowledge the ties that exist between the Republican party and Straight Inc., yet I wonder have the Democrats always kept their noses as clean as they'd like us to think?

Call me a skeptic, but I doubt it...

a friends bumper sticker:

under the republicans, man exploits man

under the democrats, it's just the opposite

Exactly.

In the big picture, (beyond just Straight) the problem of 'troubled teen' abuse goes deeper than just republican/democrat. Fager's site is a good example of sensationalist grandstanding and mindless bandwagoning. Do we really want the average Repub to think to themselves, "Oh, they're just a bunch of libs; look at how they're always pointing the finger at us Republicans"? Or, do we want to keep the door open (or at least ajar) to all of the support we can get no matter what "side" it's coming from? Just some thoughts.
