    Now they are in the pockets of corporations and the wealthy through campaign contributions and high paid lobbyists. I was a Republican for most of my life..voted for Nixon three times. I really began to open my eyes after he ordered grid bombing of North Vietnam. A million people who had no part in the political war were slaughtered. The Watergate thing just put icing on the cake.

    The last time I voted for the Spend and Borrow Republicans was for Reagan in 1984...wish I had the vote back. I'll never vote for one again if I live to 100.

    If you say you wish you had your vote back in regard to Reagan....there are two things I know for sure.

    1) You were never a republican
    2) You never voted for Reagan

    And where were you when the debt raised every single year since 1957?? Any wonder why you do not use Obama's time on here??

    And your 'Reaganbushdebt.org' stuff is just as bullshit when you post it as when Chrissypoo does

    You're a parrot... and a stupid one at that

    LOL.

    Wow you guys are kicking in early. Here comes the "I was always a republican but I can never be a republican now or ever again mantra ".

    Seen it over and over. This tactic ain't gonna work this time around AGAIN.

    Hey buddy, you know when I threw in my shoes with the Republicans on the right wing / and true conservatisim instead of Democrats is when I read Pairie Fire and Rules for Radicals.

    I used to be a true and tried feisty lib. I could out rock and roll you in a heartbeat wild child of the 60's.

    BUT Prairie Fire is dedicated to Sirhan Sirhan the man who murdered my great white hope Bobby, and Alinsky dedicated Rules to Satan.

    Hello???????????/

    So fuck you former conservative for loving a team of individuals who admire the man who shot Robert Kennedy Jr. in cold blood and use political tactics of a man who dedicated his book to the Devil.

    Heehehehe, and the party of KKK Byrd or sorry Mary Joe I got to swim out of here Senators.

    Lions you admire. Riiiiiiiiight..............

    Johnson made all his money over Haliburton (that's what they are called in today's day and age) over Vietnam.
    Why aren't you pissed off at Dems for Vietnam.

    You must be fabricating your voter history. No honest Dem can blame Nixon for the mess Dems got us into.
