OT has posted that he used to be a Republican until the Republican Party went so far Right that he just couldn't support it, anymore. I think OT was a Moderate Republican and that he is a Moderate Democrat, now.<quoted text>Dang, I never knew OT was a Conservative, I guess because like you say he is generally calm and gives a honest opinion rather than those profanity laced insults.
Moderates are not bad People, in either Party. But, all of the Moderate Republicans are leaving Congress because they just can't uphold what is now going on in the Republican Party. It started with the influx of the Evangelical Christians' influence in the Republican Party and it has progressed to the Tea Party Members' influence. If the Republicans don't rid themselves of both influences, it will be the death of their Party, IMO.
I've voted Republican in the past, but I never will, again...not until they get back to being a sensible Party, instead of a Radical Party.
Greed and the Love of Money has corrupted both Parties, IMO. Even the Democrats have some that members that have fallen into that trap. I yearn for the Democrats of Old, but I'm afraid those days are gone forever.
Man, I sound OLD, myself, don't I? Maybe my Age is catching up to me! That's what Old People do, wish we could go back to a better place in time...and that's just what I posted! Topix did it to me! Lol!
Wow! I gotta change that! Lol!
