Hundreds of voters who were registered to vote as Republicans are changing their party affiliation. The press is claiming that Republicans are leaving the party because they disagree with the riots in the Capitol.
I think that they are getting it wrong. There is a good number of voters who are sickened by how tone deaf the Republican leadership is towards its members. Perhaps many of them are leaving the party because they have come to realize, as I did more than a decade ago, that just because the Democrats are your enemy doesn’t mean that the Republicans are your friend, and the Democrats telling lies does not mean that Republicans are speaking the truth.
Too many of us are tired of being ignored by the political class in this country- a political class that intends to be our master, rather than our servant.
