How did the GOP become cowards, and heartless?

How did the GOP become cowards, and heartless?
Once upon a time, there was a great nation that a brave President called “The shining city on a hill.” That leader feared no one. He knew he had a political party and a nation that was courageous and principled. He stood up against an Evil Empire bent on destroying our way of life. His... Read more »

I quit the GOP after 42 years as a loyal member and became a Democrat. I wish I had done it sooner rather than later.

I quit the GOP after 42 years as a loyal member and became a Democrat. I wish I had done it sooner rather than later.
We cannot turn back the hands of time and redo our mistakes of the past. If we could, I would go back to 1992 and join the Democratic Party. That was when the Republican Party turned a dark corner. Leaving one’s political party is as gut churning as changing one’s religion. My family was involved... Read more »

We need to plan the funeral for the GOP

We need to plan the funeral for the GOP
The GOP I knew, and for whom I worked for over four decades is as dead as its founders. The Republican Party had a long life, 162 years. From 1854 until 2016, the year of its passing, the GOP saw many triumphs. Abraham Lincoln, the Party’s very first President, preserved the union, signed the Emancipation... Read more »

We need to practice more kindness and less politics

We need to practice more kindness and less politics
I do not care about a person’s politics or their religion. I do not care about their race, or sex, or sexual preference, or national origin. It is unimportant to me if they are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Socialist, Communist, Libertarian, or Anarchist. All I care about is whether a person has a good heart.... Read more »

Enough with the empty “thoughts and prayers”

Enough with the empty “thoughts and prayers”
That is the GOP answer to every tragedy, “thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers,” I am sick of hearing it. Has it dawned on anyone that just maybe God is saying, “I gave you a brain, fix this yourself.” Praying is a good thing in my book. We should pray for comfort; we should pray... Read more »

The GOP takes the wraps off of racism and shuts down the Government

The GOP takes the wraps off of racism and shuts down the Government
Let’s be clear, the only reason the Government is shut down is racism and xenophobia. Donald Trump and his minions in the House and Senate have come out of the racist closet in full KKK robes. Chuck Schumer gave Donald Trump his wall and wanted DACA reform in return. Fox News seems to have overlooked... Read more »

The GOP despises the Trump base, and so does Trump

The GOP despises the Trump base, and so does Trump
I spent 44 years in the GOP. More than half that time, I worked in politics as a Republican in Washington, DC. I was a corporate lobbyist and a registered foreign agent. My clients were mostly Fortune 100 companies, foreign governments, and trade associations. I worked with CEOs and heads of states and their ambassadors... Read more »

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP
Today is a good day to be a Democrat. Today is a shameful day to be a Republican. There is not a day that goes by that I am not embarrassed about my past affiliation with the GOP. Not only was I a member of the GOP, but helped GOP candidates raise money and win... Read more »

In the wake of the Texas church shooting what drives the GOP? Tax cuts and not mass murders

In the wake of the Texas church shooting what drives the GOP? Tax cuts and not mass murders
How did I ever belong to the GOP? The longer I am away from the party, the more frequently that question comes to mind. To the GOP it appears the mass shooting in Texas has zero questions for Washington. Instead of asking how it is the shooter could legally buy a gun with a past... Read more »

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics
Donald Trump doesn’t have a base. Like Charles Manson, he has a cult of personality that is oblivious to crimes, lies, and Trump’s childish behavior. It wasn’t just a quip when candidate Trump said he could walk out on 5th Avenue in New York and, “shoot somebody” and not lose a vote. He was serious,... Read more »
