I have friends who are family who are smart hyper educated Mormons who are the antithesis of Mitt Romney. Not only do my friends have an opinion that changes only when facts are irrefutably shown to them. Still they have opinions that remain firm regardless of outside pressures. Unlike Mitt they are proud of their church. Nothing in his current public discourse on Immigration has changed my opinion of Mitt as a waffling wuss. What creeps me out more are the fringe gun toting yahoos who seem to be bullying the Republican party worse than Grover and no one is worse than the triad of Grover- Rove and Cheney except the second amendment creeps who think going after Holder is a good idea. It bothers me that we don’t police these asshole better but maybe the FBI or the CIA are on it…the industrial complex that is homeland security hopefully is on it. So much violence and anger in America, it scares me. It is alike George Zimmerman is the poster man for the mindset violence against men and women of color. I think that we need to respect these fringe people who are bombing abortion clinics and bullying politicians and going after policies country wide. Weirdly the very people who are claiming war are creating that very thing, aggressive attack on freedom of choice. The intelligent gentle elite they better reset the thinking because these fringe elements are serious and they are going after “us”. Obama is coming to talk and I am nervous because I live in a small state that is red and they love their guns here. I am going to hear him speak but the secret service better be vigilant. In fact I wish he had a pope mobile. I know silly …and I hope he survives this era of weird polarization. I have strong negative feelings about Republicans especially Mitt dislike is too mild a term. BUT I don’t want to be a bigot against bigots it’s just not right.
