Today when I looked at my local paper I almost sh** a brick in anger. My eyes saw thousands of republicans with signs that said "COUNTRY FIRST". Which of course means that Dems, even perhaps Independents, don't love our country or always put it first when thinking about who to elect. That is extremely offensive. Anyone that was at that convention with half a brain should have refused to put up with that. I know a Republican or two that is a reasonable person and I feel for him too. He is generally offended by what is going on but will "still probably" vote for McCain. Please. Any republicans on these boards, PLEASE tell me this offended you. I don't care if you're voting for McCain or not but anyone with integrity should have been mad. If the Dems pull crap like this I would be equally offended. I think signs that say "HOPE" and "CHANGE" are at the very least less offensive then this. Of course it implies that the Republicans are not messengers of "hope" or "change". Change is definitely debatable while hope is less so. But nowhere should it ever be said that Dems aren't as patriotic as the Republicans.
