SandBoxBlogs: Glenwood Springs Post Independent "Reasons to leave the Democrats"

This Letter to the Editor from liberal Chad Klinger feels like manna from heaven.

Thank you, Chad!

Chad Klinger:
"In his letter “Reasons for Leaving the Republican Party” on May 12, Thomas Rutledge describes his “awakening,” after 45 years, to the realization that the “Tea Party, Paul Ryan, Ayn Rand, Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, fundamentalist Christian” party has no place for him.

I've had a rather different epiphany. Having voted for Johnson, Carter and Clinton (twice), I now find myself viewing Democrats as the party of Saul Alinsky, Frances Fox Piven, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayres, Van Jones, ACORN, anarcho-communist Occupiers, atheists, abortionists, shameless corruption (The Chicago Way), fiscal insanity (The Sacramento Way), Big Brother (in every way Orwell imagined), racism (the anti-white Justice Department way), class envy and class warfare.

Not only does this party have no place for me, I feel that it despises me because I'm white, Catholic, and an advocate of individual freedom as underwritten by the United States Constitution. Most of all, because I believe in America — what's left of it.

I remember the days when people complained that there were no real differences between the two parties and their candidates. To be sure, whomever we elect, it's always greatly about money and power, but factoring out such human constants, there sure are differences now."

"Unapologetic pursuit and tracking of patterns within the news others make since 2010."
