Why Athletes Are More Right than Left

 
ElephantI have my own opinion as to why but I don’t want to anger to many people. I think for the most part it has to do with who feels ok with a few handouts and who feels hard work gets you where you want to be. More than Republican or Democrat it’s Liberal and Conservative. 

History is what tells all in the end.  And whithout going to deap into my other interest, Politics, this is a baseball blog and it will stay just that. But I am grateful for George W. Bush, keeping our country safe so we can still enjoy what we always have.  Every American whether they believe he was a good President or not should give him that much and as President that is his number one obligation. And he succeeded!

ConservativeNow of course like most people these athletes aren’t confined to these two parties however voting records, there own words, and where their money has gone dictates where they stand on most issues. But I am a proud CONSERVATIVE who swings a little libertarian and swings back to Republican.  But may a baseball strike me in the head if I ever claim to be a liberal.
