yeah yeah, this coming from a so called life long Republican who had a transformation in his old age what a joke[/QUOTE] Old age? In 1976 I was 42 years old. 1956 Eisenhower 1960 Nixon 1964 Goldwater 1968 Nixon 1972 Nixon 1976 Did Not Vote 1980 Anderson(I) 1984 Reagan 1988 Did Not Vote 1992 Did Not Vote 1996 Did Not Vote 2000 Did Not Vote 2004 Kerry ********* 2008 Obama ********* 2012 Obama ********* ******** Voted Against Republicans I was a dyed in the wool Republican when they believed in balanced budgets, individual rights and small government. The goddam crook Richard Nixon was a criminal and lied to the American people repeatedly. After voting for him three times that was the first thing which raised my eyebrows and caused me to take a look at things. Then I settled down and even voted for Reagan one time. When I realized the asshole increased spending, cut taxes for his wealthy friends and began to borrow from foreign banks to cover the shortfall which resulted in he and Bush41 quadrupling the national debt that was nearly it. When Clinton balanced the budget, generated surpluses and had the entire debt on a course to totally settle the entire national debt I raised my eyebrows higher. Then....when George W. Bush came along and immediately cut taxes for the rich two times using reconciliation to block Democrat resistance, started two wars, one totally unnecessary and doubled the national debt again that did it. I wouldn't vote for one of the crazy pricks again if I live to 100. The Republicans have become a party of corporations and the rich with a touch of T Party(T stands for Thumpers) I Didn't Leave The Republican Party......They Left Me!!
