Response to think (Reply #8)

47. I do too, surprisingly, agree with him since he's representing his constituents well.

It's his job to do that, but it's interesting he didn't seem to support this kind of thing in previous disaster aid votes.

Ah well, we come to enlightenment through different paths. I hope that his present awareness is permanent.

After all, I used to consider myself a Republican until I realized that everything they stood for disadvantaged and marginalized me personally. When I opened my eyes, I realized that they were against everything that I believed about social justice, personal liberty, and appropriate fiscal policies.

Seems like a lifetime ago that I came to that awareness though it's only been about 30 years ago. I'm still doing penitence for my vote for Reagan's first term.
