Due to a (kind of) last-minute drop-out, I decided to participate in the College Democrats vs. College Republicans debate. I was woefully unprepared. Furthermore, I hate Bush and I’m disappointed in Congress. I think our foreign policy is a mess. I’m abstaining from voting because I can’t in good conscience vote for the current batch of Republicans. So, you can see how difficult it was arguing for a party I’m disillusioned with. But during a deficit question, I managed to say, “As a Republican, I’m confused…” and then proceeded to say that we need to cut spending.
I don’t know if the other Republicans agree, but we got our asses handed to us. At least they didn’t quote from the article I (barely) co-wrote for the Black Student Union in which the Republican party was chastised for suppressing the black vote. Hahahaha.
*Sigh* At least I got a free bottle of water, and some more public speaking experience.
Guess I’ll continue wandering the political wilderness…
