I don't want this to get into a debate, and I'm not republican, I'm actually not really either or, but being a republican is NOT a bad thing. Republicans don't go out to countries and act like ugly-americans, and andy could be a republican. Being a republican also doesn't mean that you automatically support the current administration, or don't support gays (hello, dick cheney's daughter is gay).
And people hating on republicans is just like people hating on you based on your sex, religion, and choices, etc. Discrimination...ok I'm done.
When I wrote that I was thinking more of Bush and Cheney (the true Ugly Americans) when I wrote that and not necessarily the normal Republican living next door to me, but I see now how my comment can be misinterpreted so I'm sorry if I offended anybody in here.
