I grew up in a family of Democrats thus I spent many years as a registered Democrat. I was a big JFK fan and was heart broken when he was killed.
But at some point I began to realize that the Democratic party was moving away from my values and beliefs. So I changed my voter registration to Republican.
I always thought that someday I would go back to the Democratic party and have followed all of their platforms and positions throughout the years. But I have now come to the realization that the Democratic party has moved so far away from the party I grew up in that I can never go back again.
Also I firmly believe that if JFK were alive today he would be a Republican.
The bottom line is that I should thank Obama, Biden, Reid and Pelosi and the like who have saved me from all that reading and studying I used to do as there is absolutely no way I will vote for another Democrat the way it stands now.
