Star, this is why I changed my party affiliation to Constitution Party years back. It was in protest of the direction the Republicans were headed it. Since that time I changed party affiliation back just to try to defeat Democrat races and show at least some unity of thought.
The traditional values of the Republican party should be evident without concentrating a whole heck of a lot in a person. Something done without thinking, nearly a natural reflex. Now we have to have long debates about what used to be self-evident truths.
