I am up way past my bedtime, but I just got quite the shot of adrenaline from seeing in my newsfeed the following headline from HillBuzz: “We are very close to no longer being Democrats.”
My darlings — I love you with all my heart — as Ronald Reagan said — you are not leaving the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party is leaving you.
I was a lifelong liberal and Democrat until the 2008 presidential campaign. As soon as I found out about Obama’s 20-year association with Rev. Wright, I knew he would be bad for homosexuals, women and Jews. After the nomination was stolen from Hillary, I became a fiscal conservative in the process of doing my research on the issues because I thought my Democrat friends would respect my choice to vote for McCain/Palin if I could explain it in more detail. Stop laughing.
I changed my registration from Democrat to Republican in December 2008 because I am a passionate person, I fight with a team and I want to be able to vote in the primaries. You are all too passionate to be independents. You fight with a team. Please come join me and register as Republican — if you support capitalism and liberty, that’s enough common ground.
As you know, it is Republican Colin Powell calling for the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.” It is Republican Dick Cheney supporting full equality for homosexuals. There are plenty of Republicans who would be become true and staunch advocates for our equality because this is in tune with their ideals of liberty, if only they see that we love the same founding principles of America that they do. So — please — don’t just leave the Democratic Party — join the Republican Party. You may be centrists and moderates, but you are not wishy-washy enough to be independents. There’s a place for you in the Republican Party. Fight with a team.
