That\’s me! I just wanted to please my Daddy and that meant, when I was 18, it was a given I would register as a Democrat. I was raised by 2 parents who were very liberal – San Francisco Democrats, we lived in the Haight Ashbury in San Francisco. Every political election was an all-out holiday event for my parents who volunteered, blacked-out our windows with posters and that was our life. I noticed at a young age, hypocrisy. I remember one time, at election headquarters for a San Francisco city council race, where I heard racial remarks – from someone who was supposedly for civil rights. He won. My dad was a gun owner. The Democrats have always been trying to take away the rights of gun owners and my Dad did see this and didn\’t like it – yet he still voted for the Party. Maybe because my dad and mom had no line in the sand. I noticed how the supposed \”tolerant party\” who was \”supposedly\” a friend to the less fortunate was not tolerant at all. The people who tried very hard to keep my son, from entering public school were liberal democrats. How can that be? To this day I hate the California Teachers Union.
Being raised Liberal was probably one reason why I always questioned things. I admit my first reaction to something, comes from my \”liberal Democrat side.\” on occasion. No party is perfect – not even the Republican Party. I cannot ever be a \”registered\” Republican (I tried that once) so I am a proud Independent or in California, we call it, \”declined to state.\” I have mentioned before, I do have my \”lines in the sand\” which are issues that I won\’t ever budge on. One such issue is I am Pro-Israel. It took many years for me to slowly walkway. I was secretly leaning right – on many issues. I have been a supporter of the #Walkaway movement for close to 2 years now.
I recently have joined the #Walkaway campaign as a volunteer. Every Wednesday, on my blog, will be a #Walkaway Wednesday where I will post a video of a former Democrat who has walked away from the Democrat party.
The Democratic party doesn\’t do it for me anymore – I so DONE with them.
If you comment, be civil. This is MY BLOG MY OPINION.
I don\’t go to your blog and argue and say mean things to you,
so please be \”tolerant\” of my position.
