In a way he is correct. I was a proud Republican back in the 80s and early 90s, but once the party starting talking about punishing those that
didn't vote in the same manner as the rest of the party after the Republicans took control of congress, I knew it was no longer the party I once
loved. Been an independent since then.
It just shocked me that suddenly being a conservative no longer meant having traditional values, but to tow the party line. That our beliefs must
match that of the parties to be accepted. The big tent party that accepted all Americans was dead.
