When I was young, I was a democrat. The democratic party has been pushed so far left it is not the same party as when I was young. I have become conservative in my old age and much wiser. Happens to lots of people.
You are correct.
Michele Bachmann came from a Democrat family. In Minnesota, what would you expect? In Texas, Rick Perry, who is no youngster, dates back to the days when in politics you were a Democrat in order to get anywhere, and you could be anything on the spectrum from left to right to in-between.
BTW, I love Sarah Palin and could proudly support her. Or Michele. Or Herman Cain. Or Rick Perry.
I was a Democrat because my father was a Democrat. I didn’t leave the party, the party left me. Now it is happening with the Republicans and I may change again-—to a third party? If one comes along that I like better-—yes.
Right now I see a Republican party with a lot of Democrats (RINO’s) running it.
This country needs term limits, and we need them bad. Older politicians are more interested in getting re-elected than in what is good for America.
