Welcome To The Fold

A journalist from the Las Vegas Review Journal comes out of the closet and makes the jump to the GOP

First, I’m not trying to time anything. Enough was enough. Could stand no more. So, when it came time to renew my driver’s license on June 9, I also gave the Democratic Party the pink slip.

I pushed the DMV clerk the paperwork. She shoved it back and said I didn’t have to fill out that form if my address remained the same.

“No, I want to change party affiliation.”

“Oh,” she said. “Had enough of the president, have we?”

“Up to here. I quit.”

Welcome, Mr. Frederick.  I have a feeling that you won’t be alone.  Come 2010, I think there will be more defections to the GOP than anytime since the 1994 Republican Revolution.  I think a whole bunch of folks are having some buyer’s remorse.  And I think a lot of people who were so cavalier about politics are now scared shitless over the things they are seeing from the Democrat regime in DC.

  1. Here’s hoping, bud. Here’s hoping. We certainly need to overhaul the GOP, though–because they have been, if you’ll pardon the phrase, verbally fellating the radical liberals for quite a while now–so it’s no wonder that people are fed up with them.
    But, thank God, conservatives (with or without a party affiliation) are still the majority in America.
    Great post! After all the stuff I have been reading on Malkin’s blog, this was a small lift to my day.

  2. I was at a quarterly church confernce this Saturday. I am a delegate from my parish.

    Nationwide, church tithing is up 6% even in this bad economy. Perhaps this is due to fear of Obama and people turning back to God? I said such and was shouted down once again.

  3. “I don’t want my great-grandchildren growing up in cradle-to-grave government care, where only the privileged few may afford a car, or own a home, or get non-rationed health care.”

    Even I don’t think Obama wants that for America. But I do think he wants to take it farther than it has ever gone. That’s scary enough. We’ve ventured far enough to the left to know socialism does not work.

  4. Hmmm, so you can change affliation at the DMV? I need to do that, I registered myself as a socialist when I was 20 or so (GAG) and need to fix that.

    Yes. You can change party affiliation at the DMV. It is called Motor Voter.

  6. Dan, thanks for the baaclne you add to my postings. I don’t necessarily agree with all you say but that is ok. I don’t believe that the Christian Right is anti-Christian, just misguided. And that is certainly not an unusual road for Christians to be in; especially when they give in to the political arenas of this world. The examples that come immediately to mind is the Crusades, the Inquisition, and even the 1950 s when whole Christian denominations landed on the segragation side of the Civil Rights movement. I think many on the right let the words of their leaders (Rush Limburgh, Jerry Falwell, and that gang) crowd out the teachings of Jesus. I don’t think it is intentional but it does happen. They think that just because the leaders say they are against abortion, but nothing ever changes in that area even when they had almost total political control, that they are somehow aligned with all Christian principles. That couldn’t be further from the truth, as least as I understand it.Yes, I do believe that a Christian Left political movement would be just as harmful to Christianity as the right is now. Harmful but not lethal. Many who proudly align with the extreme right wing of politics are not unchristian just misguided and I pray daily they instead of listening to the hate spewed out by their spokesmen they instead spend that time in reflection of Jesus Christ’s words as found in the Gospels. The two are very different.
