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.
