Over the years, Republican Party left him

Amid the current turmoil over anyone even remotely connected with President Donald Trump, and the endless investigation into anything he has ever done, I am compelled to write once again.

I started out as a Republican 6 decades ago. Much like how Ronald Reagan said about not leaving the Democratic Party and the party left him, I also feel that the Republican Party has left me.

There may be a few real Republican politicians out there, but they’re a handful in the herd of RINO’s – Republicans in Name Only. That is how the Libertarian Party came about; many of us got tired of voting for RINO Republicans because they were the only viable alternative to the LPDSC’s (Liberal/Progressive/Democratic/Socialist/Communist). 

Call me an absolutist, I don’t care. I have seen for decades that Democratic Socialists and Communists are only a matter of degree. As should be obvious to anyone with eyes with the way that the Democratic Party is transforming itself into the Social Democrat Party, just like in Europe.

I should qualify these statements with my personal political views. I didn’t vote for Trump because I didn’t know enough about his politics at the time, but now I’m a total fan of his.
