There is no longer hope that the South will come out of the 1860′s. There is no longer hope that the GOP will dump the TEA. After 35+ years as a Republican I have become an Independent. It is one thing to be conservative and quite another to be radically right socially, religiously, and economically. My old party has ceased to exist.

Another Republican who sold out what is right, for money and power.
