How Mitt Romney Won My Vote

My parents a mixed pair, a Yankee Union Railroad family and a Southern Democrat, both stopped voting for the Demonrats because of the scum-bag LBJ, followed by the wimp Humphrey, and the cry-baby McGovern. We did vote Demonrat for awhile in State and Local elections, but quit that in the mid-80's. The Demonrat Party is just the CPUSA in a different "suit".

Back in May of 1999, I made a decision to leave the Democratic Party. It was an easy decision. I had been a Democrat for 11 years. I voted for Dukakis when I was a committed leftist. But, later, when I became a pro-life conservative, there was no room for me in the party. So I became a Republican and also joined the NRA. I've been a straight shooter ever since. Excuse me if that last line sounded heterosexist. I’m a work in regress....
