In 2000 the Republican party forced a Florida court to name G.W. Bush as president.
In 2004 we were denied entrance to political rallies if we did not sign loyalty oaths.
Now it is nearing 2010 and the same people that would not let me gather at their rallies are standing on soapboxes at town halls across our nation.
I was born six months before Nixon resigned in disgrace.
In my life Republicans erode peace and prosperity from Vietnam to Afghanistan, Abu Ghraib to the Iran-Contra scandals. Donald Rumsfeld accused the Pentagon of making over two trillion dollars disappear and the next day our nation was attacked on 9/11.
For eight years Bush offered no protection or guidance regarding economic crisis. He started two wars that continue to this day.
So now the Republicans deny their party affiliations (which were required to attend their public gatherings) and grandstand for the sake of chaos.
"Though not legally binding, the Republican National Committee (RNC) used both signed Loyalty Oaths and spoken Loyalty Pledges as a requirement to attend certain 2004 re-election campaign speeches, a possible first in U.S. election history.
During the 2004 presidential campaign, the campaign of George W. Bush routinely required all attendants at its rallies to take what some have called a "loyalty oath". Those who refused to take the oath were not allowed to attend the rally. The "loyalty oath" was actually a pledge of endorsement. These endorsements were used during some of the campaign rallies in 2004. The Bush campaign asserted that the oath was valid because the president was conducting a partisan campaign event. Opponents countered that the oath was intrusive to individual conscience, somewhat fascist in nature and denied general public access to the president.  " http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loyalty_oath
"PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla.—"I want you to stand, raise your right hands," and recite "the Bush Pledge," said Florida state Sen. Ken Pruitt. The assembled mass of about 2,000 in this Treasure Coast town about an hour north of West Palm Beach dutifully rose, arms aloft, and repeated after Pruitt: "I care about freedom and liberty. I care about my family. I care about my country. Because I care, I promise to work hard to re-elect, re-elect George W. Bush as president of the United States." http://slate.com/id/2108852/
