I’m a registered democrat, but now consider myself an Independent.I have said on this site before that I made one of the biggest voting mistakes of my life by voting for Obama. Yes, long held, brought up in a very liberal household white guilt played into my vote, as did my aversion to McCain.
BUT — understand that now many people like me have their eyes wide open & are horrified at what their vote has wrought. We could spend all day debating how we could not have known the full extent of what Obama is doing, but the truth is MANY of us (myself, my brother, friends I have talked to- sadly- not my mother) are appalled & won’t ever make this mistake again. You can say, “Too little, too late”, but the fact is he is in office. That we can’t change. I do believe that there are alot of people out there like me, like my brother, like people I have talked to— we won’t be fooled again. When the next presidential election comes up I do believe that many people like me will have long ago abandoned him.
I also believe that you will see a surprising number of people like me who never in their lives thought they would go on a site such as Freerepublic, let alone post & find they are in agreement w/ many of the thoughts posted here. It’s mind blowing really. We are coming over to your side. It is scary, some people here are suspicious of people like me, but it is what it is. Sometimes it takes a monumental mistake such as voting for someone & wondering how you let yourself do that to wake you up.
Have patience w/ us, we are looking at what you have to offer & it IS looking good.
My “yellow dog” democrat friends need to know this. Obama, his handlers and minions are not dogs. These people are WOLVES. The Democrat Party of old has been co-opted by the progressive movement.
