Republicans, Take Note

In all likelihood, you are viewing this blog because you are left leaning yourself and would like very much to see a significant change to the political direction of this great country. You are unwilling to sit silently while the likes of Michelle Bachmann, Eric Cantor, Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell and others try to hold us hostage while relaying to their base a message that is warped at best and criminal at worst. You are concerned not just with the re-election of President Barack Obama, but want to ensure that a democratic congress is elected in 2012 and that the American dreams remains alive and well for all Americans....not simply select Americans.

You may, however, feel limited in what you can do and where to place your enthusiasm, energy and focus.  While volunteering for a political campaign is obviously the most productive thing to do, many people do not have the time to do so or are not comfortable doing this. Donating money is another superb way to help out, but that is not doable for many individuals in this dicey economy.

What I am now launching on my site is something called "Republicans, Take Note". Each day (yes, every day) I will be posting the name of a republican politician and I am asking you to give me a message that you would like delivered to that individual. I will gather all the comments,  remarks and sentiments and commit them to paper. Then, I will mail them to their offices and get our collective message across to them.

You may relay your message to me here on this blog, via my Facebook page at "Left Leaning Liberal Ladies" or via Twitter @theliberallady. I would like to respectfully ask that you do not use profanity during the course of your communication. I know, this will be super hard with some republican politicians who strike us as particularly vile. However, I think this is important in getting our message across in the most effective manner possible.

When you leave your comment please also let me know your initials and where you live. You do not need to provide a full name, unless you would like to. I am committed to doing this whether I receive 3 responses per day or 300 or 3,000.

There will also be some days that I may ask that you direct your comments to democrats as well. Not only do we occasionally needs to give these heroes an "Atta Boy", but we also may need to hold their feet to the fire and make sure that they take our vision of a perfected America to Washington and make it a reality.

Thank you for listening and I look forward to your comments.



  1. Sir, you really need to step down. You are doing nothing but holding the country back from it's full potential with your views on women, which you have made perfectly clear to the world.

  2. Mr West. You're a traitor to this country, it's people and to the sacred trust you were given by your clearly deluded voter base. Go buy some comfy shoes for that unemployment line. You're lucky I'm not in your district.

  3. Why didn't you learn the lessons from the coolidge and harding administrations? Instead of admitting they were wrong , you just keep trying their ideas endlessly expecting a different result.

  4. Ordinarily I would focus my message to you on your appalling behavior to women, but I am watching the stock market tumble today -- this week it has lost a total of 10% and I am distracted from your misogyny. You and your Republican peers have destroyed the viability of the United States of America. There is no confidence in the ability of the United States Government to be a government. You have decided to take the United States down with you. You an your peers are systematically dismantling a nation. You and your peers are a joke. You have no notion of responsibility. You do not understand the severity of the crisis. You have oil companies and banks earning the largest prophets in history. You have the lowest interest rates in history. The cost of debt is less than the cost of unemployment. You refuse to promote the well being of the United States of America. You owe me tens of thousands of dollars as my retirement dropped significantly (I watched it go down the tubes in the market today). Shame on you.

  5. Actually, I would much rather see you tried for treason than resign.

  6. Stop thinking with your lizard brain and try thinking with your cerebral cortex for a change. The people in your district thought they were voting for someone reasonable, not someone who operates out of hatred and bias.
