About


A disabled Vietnam veteran. I was a Republican since birth.( my parents insisted) since I was forced to retire and had all this time on my hands I began following and participating in politics. It didn't take long to realize something was wrong....my party's beliefs and it's stand on policies that were important to me we're not the same...the evening the tv newscaster told me there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq....I became a staunch Democrat. I joined the local Democratic group and followed my concience and my heart. I get really concerned when politicians mess with individual or group rights, educational opportunities, curtail senior rights and support, Veterans benifits, voting privileges, and I find it fascinating the direction of the Republican Party....I now have the same feeling I did when I quit smoking.....got off them just in time.....
