I’m one of those that walked away from the Republican Party. I’m conservative in some respects, moderate in others, and liberal in still others. It will be a long time before I consider rejoining the GOP. I joined the Democratic Party last year to at least have a voice in primary elections, otherwise I might have become an Independent.
SGT (Join to see) Mom was a democrat until Kennedy was assassinated. She decided that a party that would elect a loud mouthed rancher from Texas President didn't need her vote. Dad was a Republican, but he voted for Kennedy, said he believed in him. (He switched to democrat after he died, but that's New Jersey. We stopped his reincarnate voting, though) Us kids grew up taught to think. We're all Constitutional Conservatives, if you need a defining term. Over the years, there's been a couple local/state dems that I've voted for, but they were nothing like the dems out there now, and from what I see of the herd, they're all culls anyway.
