I'm not afraid to say it. I actively despise the Republican Party and all that it stands for. It is a gang of criminals, hypocrites, liars, thieves, crooks, bigots, fascists, and theocrats, whose only goal is the creation of an America that would make George Washington vomit out his own spleen.
They want an America where I'm not free to practice my own religion, but I'm forced to participate in the public display of religions in which I don't believe.
They want an America where my partner and I are vilified and ostracized, and can never have equal marriage rights, but where heterosexuals are free to marry on a whim in Vegas and divorce the next day.
They want an America that goes to war based on lies, and covers those lies with more lies and more lies until the lies become truth.
They want an America where the working class is stripped of the minimum wage and can't make ends meet, but millionaires get a break on their taxes so their heirs can afford one more yacht.
They want an America where habeas corpus means they ask for ID before they waterboard you.
They want an America where secretive private companies control easily manipulated voting machines, so that you and I can't even be sure that our votes count.
They want an America that builds walls around itself, instead of bridges to the world.
They want an America in which every person fends for himself, and hates and fears his neighbors, instead of an America where people work together, as a community.
They want an America where the answer to violent crime is to fill the streets with guns and tell people to shoot first, and forget the questions later.
They want an America in which questioning the government is treason, but when the government itself is lying, then it's the media's fault for reporting it.
They want an America where torturing people is o.k. as long as we don't call it torture.
I don't want that America.
