Why the Republican Party Hates Me – Floyd Bayne

By Floyd Bayne

Bayne_TeaParty-Rally_largeHey, do you guys know why the Republican Party hates me? Hates me so much that they still, to this day, have people taking screenshots of my blog and my FB page, so they can use it against me in the future, if the need arises? Do you know why?

Because I was "too aggressive." That's right. By their standards I was too aggressive. I said things about Cantor and Republicans in general that people just are not supposed to say. I, and some of those who volunteered to work for me, were willing to point out those Republicans who did not live up to the Creed or to their oath of office. We called a spade a spade, because it needed to be done and it was the right thing to do. I make no apologies for it and will continue to "aggressively" shill for liberty and individual rights as long as I have breath in my lungs.

Many of you are now my FB friends for no other reason than that you agreed with my assessments and proclamations. That has to be it, as we share little else in common. We are not members of the same clubs, we don't play on the same sports team, we don't work in the same office, so it must be the political angle. Yet now that "aggressiveness" seems to be unwanted. People who worked for my campaign and shared my passion/aggressiveness for liberty are being shunned, mistreated, lied to and lied about. They are, in fact, being treated exactly like the Republican establishment has treated many of you in recent years. Funny how the tables turn.

If you no longer appreciate my "aggressive style" and you are willing to mistreat those who share my passion and efforts, now and in the past, then do me, and yourself, a huge favor and unfriend me now. I will not stop being who I am and advocating for what I believe in, and I will continue to call a spade a spade. If that bothers you, if I am too "aggressive," then I see no reason for you to stick around.
