I admire the man for having the courage to stand up for and behind his convictions. But I do have to question, why when he was practicing medicine did he find the Democratic Party served his needs better than the Republican Party. Now he feels the party he supported all his life is letting him down? Maybe itís taken this long for him to realize there is a problem.
I donít think he is going to be much happier being a Republican though. I would like to think that PG has come to a point in his life where he now knows independence is the true road to happiness. When you attach yourself to any type of group you are just another member of the herd, and you must follow the herd to be heard.
