44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent, today I'm joining the Democratic Party

44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent, today I'm joining the Democratic Party
This was not an easy decision to make.  Politics is like one’s religion, you just don’t change it unless you have a moment of clarity and realize you are on the wrong path.  My family’s involvement in the GOP goes all the way back to the mid-1850s and the start of the GOP in Illinois....

Ronald... Read more »

Why this Ex-GOP is voting for Hillary
I’ve never voted for a Democrat for President. I’ve been voting for 44 years and have always voted for the GOP nominee. Many Republicans have announced they will vote for Hillary, as a protest vote against Donald Trump’s nomination. The list of protest voters is long and impressive and includes a former Republican President, First... Read more »
