Why I am no longer a Republican.

With the Republicans in the White House, we may all start to feel like Number 6.

Paul Ryan is supposedly blaming Obama for how partisan politics has become. He is wrong.

Oh, he is correct in that it IS the most partisan ever. It has been getting more and more partisan and farther and farther divided for the previous two elections. Obama has nothing to do with that.

It’s been that way since more and more people hated the way Bush was eroding American freedoms and American values for the sake of a false sense of security.

That why I left the Republican party and voted against Bush on his second term.

Yes, I used to be Republican. But the GOP moved farther and farther to the right and I started moving left.

Because the harder they tried to turn back the clock, the more offended I became by the GOP values.

A bunch of rich old men who have no idea how life is in this country for the average person think they have the right to tell me how to live? I don’t think so.

More and more Republican women have been speaking up and trying to be active too. And I’ve found them even more offensive than the men.

Women active in politics who say that if men did their jobs properly, women would not need the right to vote. Women who actively fight to allow men to control women’s reproductive rights. Women who tear apart programs and funding to help women who are victims of rape and/or victims of domestic violence.

And the entire concept of Social Conservatism is a nightmare. Having one group with one religious ideology saying they should have the right to control everyone’s morality based on their own opinions. They say government should stay out of business but want to put government into everyone’s private homes and bedrooms.

Personally, I don’t see how any reasonable person can STAY Republican. I would think more people would be fleeing such a backwards, actively regressing, party.
