This was a good letter, and a good start at a conversation.
I'm a white male, and have been a Bible-believing Evangelical for four decades. Missed voting for Nixon by one month (too young) and voted the straight Republican ticket all those years. Served in the Republican Party as an elected official (minor), walked and canvassed the district, elected to the state convention for the national election of 1992. Encouraged people to vote Republican, hosted open community meetings to explain Republican principles. Proud of my work, I was.
I voted for Obama this time, and I voted a near straight Democratic Party ticket. And I don't intend to vote for another Republican.
I'll explain in my reply.
