Skip to comments.Confessions of an Ex-Democrat

[snip]...Furthermore, in the interests of full disclosure, I should confess that for a long time I was a Democrat. But, in my own defense, I was never a liberal. For those of a tender age, I should hasten to mention that there was a time when it was possible to be one without being the other. So, for instance, I could be a registered Democrat while simultaneously opposing unilateral disarmament. I could be a Democrat and still believe that Whitaker Chambers was telling the truth and that Alger Hiss and Julius Rosenberg were lying when they denied being Soviet spies. I could oppose Jim Crow laws while at the same time regarding racial quotas as reverse racism. I could be angry about Watergate and still oppose the slandering and libeling of Clarence Thomas. I could even be a Democrat and still despise the universally beloved Walter Cronkite, whose pose as an objective newsman was as phony as Obama's attempt to foist himself off as bi-partisan, for doing his best to make certain we didn't win the Vietnam War.

My tagline below...
Unfortunately, this is not just a Democrat problem.
Being Democrat means being Liberal.
Liberal = Progessive = Socialist = Commie.
.... The truth is I have removed a fair number of people from my social circle over the past few years simply because they support Barack Obamas policies and respond favorably to his race and class warfare rhetoric.
.... That may strike some people as petty and intolerant, but what would it say about me if I associate with people whose beliefs, values and behavior, I abhor? Why on Earth would I want to spend time with those whom I am convinced are doing their utmost to destroy the nation I love ...?
The truth is, so have I - included among them, my best friend.
The other Truth is that I love Burt Prelutsky!
