Response to silvershadow (Original post)

6. Stories like these always make me cautiously happy.

On one hand, I take great pleasure in seeing the GOP's tent shrink. But on the other hand, there was a reason why they became Republicans in the first place, rather than Democrats. I'm OK with Republicans-turned-Democrats having a few moderate or right-leaning stances, but once about half of their views start to look Reagan-esque, that is when it becomes a problem because it could make the party shift rightward if too many of these types join and vastly outnumber those of us on the liberal-wing of the party.
This is surely something to think about.
