69. Just FYI...

I was registered as a Republican for more than 20 years. I am disgusted by what has become the Republican Party. I voted for Obama in 2008 and was going to keep my affiliation to be a spoiler in Republican Primaries.

But... When I voted in this years primary. The person checking me in called out "He's Republican" to the person giving out the ballot materials. I cringed. In that moment I remember looking over my shoulder to see if anyone heard what he called me. I felt shamed.

I changed my registration that day. I thought it did not matter what party I was in before that moment. But in that moment of shame I knew that I could not be a part of the party that has become a fun house mirror reflection of how it started. http://whateverworks4you.blogspot.com/2012/07/new-american-independent.html

I do not think I will ever vote republican again. What the Republicans have done to Our President, and Our Country, disgusts me to my core. It is not funny anymore. I can't just laugh at the loony right and and be a part of such a hatefulness. And, I do not believe I am the only one who feels this way.

I believe more Republicans will vote for President Obama than most can imagine. I am one of them who cannot be a part of their madness anymore. I am not alone.

Our President deserves another term

Thank you barbtries for your efforts. They are not in vain; because if not for anything else, you have shown me that there is reason to hope. Your efforts have directly touched the hearts of many seen and unseen. You are a hero.

Thank You!
