        Well, the bastages were smart and registered http://imvotingdemocrat.com to redirect to the other site. So the pubbies don't get to pull the same trick using the same phrase.

        Somehow I don't think the Libs will need any help driving people away. Most people who vote want something from someone else that they're not willing to pay for themselves. (Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.) The Libs aren't going to give it to them. A fundamental principle of "we will leave you alone" just isn't a seller in today's political market. (Boy, is that an oxymoron! :p)

              "I'm voting Republican because we don't like shopping at small, neighborhood stores..."
              Small stores have higher overhead and thus higher prices. Cheap plastic crap from China is exactly that. You decide with your dollar, not with which president you elect.

              "I'm voting Republican because I don't really want a cure for AIDS or breast cancer..."
              AIDS gained the homosexual reputation because they were a great opportunity for a sexually-transmitted disease to be transmitted. The religious right's disdain for homosexuality may let the zealots march with "God made AIDS to kill fags!" signs, but that attitude is limited to the zealots.
              The mysogony thing doesn't really fit; they threw that on to amplify the emotion of anyone incensed by the first half.

              "I'm voting Republican because I think new drugs should be availiable immediately... tested or not..."
              Drugs take a decade to make and a LIFETIME to truly, thorougly test. There are plenty of people who would choose, and have chosen, to take an unproven drug in hopes of NOT DYING. So either you make new drugs availiable early and let 90% of them save lives, or let all those people suffer and die for eighty years while we make super-duper-sure.

              "I'm voting Republican because so my little Katlynn can be in a classroom with at least 30 other students..."
              I thought conservatives were the ones who most-frequently home-schooled or used private schools. The liberals already run our public school system, and it's nothing more than a daycare and a liberal training facility. Gold star!

              "I'm voting Republican because women can't be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies..."
              That's twice they've played the mysogonist card. The abortion argument isn't about female decision making skills, it's about whether a foetus counts as a separate human being.

              "I'm voting Republican because I've already seen the great outdoors... *pause while the cue-card flips* ...fossil fuel > protecting wildlands"
              Oil can be extracted with minimal ecological impact. Moose don't care about a pipe as long as they can trot under it or over it. Nature burns down entire forests with lighting strikes and they come right back so you can't say that ploughing a line to make a road or a pipeline is going to kill mother earth.

              "We're voting Republican because we like a conservative majority on the supreme court. We really like knowing that even if we're separate, we'll still be called equal."
              Wow. Just, wow. I expect Clarence Thomas would perform an epic facepalm should he hear about this video.

              (insert talky gay-rights stuff here)
              Gay marriage is an issue that should be handled on the community/state level. The president should have far-more-important concerns than sleeping arrangements. Besides, gay-rights is a legislative issue, not executive.

              "I'm voting Republican because corporations shouldn't have to pay for environmental damage...
              The EPA is a ham-fisted pain in the butt that has little effect other than making companies pollute with chemical nasties that aren't on the naughty list yet. Give them a tax break, and companies will gladly clean up their messes and then use their clean-up efforts in their advertising campaigns.

              (The Frankenfood argument)
              There have been a number of irradiated- and genetically-modified-food labeling laws. They all fail because of loopholes or exceptions. If you're really worried, grow your own vegies, or research companies and spend the extra $3 to support a brand you can trust.

              "I'm voting Republican because I really enjoy being screwed by the utility companies."
              Utilities are usually local entities, badger your mayor. The president doesn't have time for your water bill.

              "We neeed more minorities in prison."
              That went quickly and I didn't catch it, did you say minorities need to stop commiting violent crimes and improve the general population's impression of minority culture? I agree.

              "Because hybrid cars really suck."
              Oh, we're just joking around at this point in the video. Hybrid cars are useful for specific applications, but they are not going to magically end oil dependency when we're still generating electricity from dead dinosaurs.

              "I just don't feel I deserve health insurance."
              WHAT THE CRAP. Where does this sort of socialist entitlement feeling come from? Public schools? TV? Insurance is a BUSINESS. Didn't the liberals tell us businesses are evil? Here's a pro tip: Save your money so if you get hurt you have money.

              "Because Texas needs more billionares."
              Jealous much? I guess that explains why Al Gore and the Clintons and Obama and all-the-rest live in abject poverty.

              "I'm voting Republican because sometimes the constitution is just one big inconvenient headache."
              Like that Second Amendment. Conservatives HATE that thing. Good thing the liberals are here to protect my right to possess weapons.

              "I think the whole world should be run by one big corporation..."
              Sounds liberal to me. After all, once you socialstify the health machine, the utility machine, the education machine, and the government machine, you can just call everything The Ministry of _____.

              (Insert cliché warmonger lols here)
              No comment necessary.



              I wonder how many carbon credits they'll need to offset for all the energy spent making that video and running the webserver that's hosting it.

                Aw man, you're no fun. Here we were enjoying laughing at the absurdity of the thing, and you had to go and try to use logic to discredit it! It was better as just a bad joke. >.>

                  Re: I'm Voting Republican

                  I don't think the video is specifically about the Presidential election. It seemed aimed at the party all levels, including Congress and your local mayor.

                  In addition to myths Democrats have about Republicans, perhaps there should be a list of myths Republicans have about themselves. Like being the party of fiscal responsibility. Or the party protecting gun rights. (Gun rights advocates are tossed to the sharks when trading votes for some nice piece of pork in one's district.)

                        Yea, cause thats definitely the Reps fault and not the Democratic controlled Senate.

                          Inflation is from the Fed and the Treasury. How much influence does the Senate have on those right now?

                              Inflation also happens whenever prices go up, regardless of what the Fed does. Oil prices go up = inflation.
