I'm assuming that this is not just a Colorado thing, but, I've noticed that those who chose to place a Bush/Cheney or the 'W' sticker on their car, have done just that, just that sticker. At least half of the cars I see with a Kerry/Edwards sticker are accompanied by another sticker spouting an insult towards the President or Republicans.

The over-zealous hatred of Republicans does little good for the Democratic Party. When I have a liberal troll call me a ugly, fat, white trash cunt and tell me that he was going to pray for something bad to happen to me and my family; how well does rubbish such as that sit with the average American? Not very well at all, whatever your party of choice. I would never wish ill upon someone simply because I do not agree with them politically.

I always have and do to this day, believe that as a whole, both parties want the same things. We would like to see an end to poverty and crime. We would like to see world peace. We want our children to grow up healthy and well educated and we both want our freedom to come at the smallest price possible. We just simply believe in different paths to reach the same destination.

This past election season we chose not to place yard signs up. We wanted to be respectful towards our neighbors and not create unnecessary animosity. Because come November 3rd, our neighbors were still going to be our neighbors. Our cars are the same situation. You aggrevate others around you when they read bumper stickers that insult them. Additionally, there were more reports of vandalism towards individuals with pro-Bush stickers and signs than the opposite. Again, what good does that do for the Democratic Party when a car sporting a Bush/Cheney sticker has it's windows broken?

Voicing our opinions is best accomplished at the ballot box. Well, there and the blogosphere. ;-)

You've just got to understand what these folks are facing now. For at least the last 60 years, these libs have gotten used to being the "high road" types, saviors of our society, the ones that lifted up the underprivileged and the downtrodden. In the last ten years or so, they have been exposed for the extremist, anything goes, abdication of personal responsibility advocates that they are. No longer do they get to wear the white hats. Couple that with the fact that they have lost congressional control, and have a hard time getting elected to dog catcher, and you have insight to how they have become the shrill, bitter nasty people they so plainly are.

Yes, Eugene, that includes you.

I have yet to see a vehicle sporting a Kerry/Edwards sticker, to also have any kind of "Support Our Troops" sticker/magnet. Not a single one.

Its not just a Colorado thing. I haven't seen anybody's car be vadalized over it, but that doesn't mean it hasn't happened.

But around election time there were Democrat signs all vandaled up and another sign put up blaming Republicans. Right,sure.

A good time to go shopping for a new house is election time, when you can see what all your neighbors affiliations are.

Crap, does that mean I have to take down my car magnets that says, "support our troops" and the other one that has our church/school name/logo on it?

Depends TGT, are you insulting anyone with them? LOL Honestly 99% of the 'support our troops' ribbons I've seen on cars have no other stickers promoting a candidate. Again, this is my area I'm speaking of.

Personally I have not seen anything vandalized myself but have read many national reports regarding this issue. There were also several Republican offices in the country that were vandalized last election season that I never heard mentioned in the MSM.

Good point Stacy, I probably am insulting someone with them, I am sure of it. Athiests. People who don't support our troops. I'm still leaving them on. No one has stolen them yet, so that is a good sign, yes? I haven't heard of any vandalizing here in our town either.

But I did read that during this last election that car tires were being slashed at the voting places. Now, that is sad.

Great observation Stacy, but it's sadly not just a Colorado thing.

Hey, if I can get insulted by having to drive behind a John Kerry car, I see nothing wrong with proclaiming my Republicanism to the world in kind. And guess what, folks? Even when you rip the Bush/Cheney sticker off my Harvey's back window and throw it on the windshield wiper...there's another where that one came from. I am a proud Republican and I DRIVE that way.

Hard left moonbats have no respect for private property - because in their heart of hearts they lothe the very concept of private property.

Here in the Memphis, TN area I see a lot of F the president stickers. I think that's pretty damn disrespectful. If there is a Democratic president after the next elections, I hope those of us on the other side can show a little more decency.
