An Apology to my party...

See here's the thing...I'm a RINO (Republican In Name Only) and I'm very sorry. In Fact here's a detailed list of the things I'm sorry for:

-For being a thinking individual that believes in seperating my religion from my government...
-For believing that intelligent discourse examining all sides of an issue is o.k...
-For believing that Democrats don't hate America and may just have a different idea of what's best for it...
-For believing that Tax Cuts that ignore fiscal responsibility are bad...
-For believing that support of science doesn't make me a God Hater...
-For believing that using loopholes in the law are always wrong...
-For believing that pre-emptive war is wrong...
-For thniking future AG Gonzales is no better than Johnny Cochran...
-For thinking that criticizing Republican policies I disagree with during a campaign is more ethically sound than keeping my mouth shut until we win...
-For being Pro-Choice...
-For advocating Gay Civil Unions on an economic basis...
-For agreeing with No Child Left Behind and disagreeing with it's under funding...
-For believing that gerrymandering underminds Democracy...
-For not stooping to name calling to get a point across...
-For thinking that pollution is a bad thing and that factory owners might not be the experts on what's good for the enviroment.
-For wanting to actually hold Cooperations, Insurance providers, Doctors, and Politicians accountable for mistakes...
-For believing that the most advanced society in the world ought to be able to at least provide minimum health care benifits to its citizens...
-For thinking it's wrong to changes rules and laws because they don't work for us...

These are all things that I'm sorry for...I'm sorry for being a RINO and wanting us to be "That shining city on a hill" that Regean wanted us to be. I'm a Republican and don't tow the party line without aksing questions...I want us to be able to look at Democrats, Libertarians, and Greens and say "We are better than you". I want us to look at the American people and say follow us...and when they ask why...well, we can come back with something better than "Because we said so", "Because the other guys are weak, liars, evil, stupid, etc...", or "Don't you love your country?". So for all the talk of inclusion during campaigns and conventions I'd like to point out that I'm a Republican...but "In Name Only". Too bad, I'd like to be able to be an American that can speak with an open heart and mind but I guess that means I'm not a real Republican...So I stand before you all and say I'm a RINO and it isn't just your party "Real Republicans". Any of you that think you can have an intelligent dicourse (and I know many of you can)...Let's have this one...Why am I less a Republican than the rest of you and what does being a Republican really mean?
