As a lifelong Republican, other members of the GOP express surprise or worse at my support of the President. Sometime after Ronald Reagan’s presidency, the GOP stopped offering candidates who were good men and good for the country as a whole. If there is a class war in the US, the GOP started it. I will not support any candidate, Republican or Democratic, who will not work for the good of ALL Americans. I believe that Barack Obama has the welfare of all Americans as his goal. Therefore, I support him.
Our political system works best when we have two competing candidates and parties that offer competing solutions for the nation’s problems. What we have today are too many individuals in both parties who put their careers and welfare ahead of their duty to the country. In a word, the system is rotten with corruption. Washington, DC, makes the Augean stables look like a pristine clean room by comparison. The cleansing of the Augean stables was one of the 12 labors of Hercules in ancient mythology.
