    I'd seriously consider switching sides. This censorship from the left is solely democratic controlled and it should scare the hell out of you. Another shut down of a free-speech site that sides against your way of thinking.

    This is the tip of the iceberg. America is gifted for freedom of speech on both fronts. And if you think life would be better if the right is completely shut down, you've got mush for brains.

    There's absolutely nothing the democratic party is doing right now that inspires anyone. The hardcore dems will feed off TDS, but the moderates on the left will likely either not vote, or vote for Trump or a write-in.

    Trump wins by biggest margin since 1984.

    Walk Away was founded by a gay hairdresser who was devastated by Hillary's loss. Walk Away is for Democrats who think for themselves.

    Walk Away and BLEXIT are gaining momentum so Zogby and Rasmussen tell me. Most new members have a triple digit IQ.

    I was talking to an old friend who lives over on the Gulf yesterday; who told me he has never bothered to change his party from Dim to Repub, but was finally so ashamed to have to show his voter registration card that he was changing.
    Some of us are "seasoned" enough to recall when Florida was a hard core Blue Dog Democrat state, with a Legislature to the right of any Republican today.

    Most of those guys from days gone by are surely rolling over in their graves.

    As Florida was when I was stationed at Homestead AFB.

    The sheriff in the county where I work (I live in the neighboring county) recently publicly announced his switch from D to R; his reason being the attitude of Dems towards law enforcement.

    When I was growing up in Kentucky in the late 70s / early 80s, both Senators and 5 out of 7 congressman were Dems, and they dominated the statehouse and most if not all statewide elected offices.

    McConnell defeated the incumbent Dem for the Senate seat in 1984, and HOF BB pitcher Jim Bunning took the other in an open-seat election in 1992, now held by Rand Paul.

    5 out of 6 congressional seats are now held by the GOP, along with both chambers of the statehouse, and all state offices except the governorship.

    My parents are still registered Dems but are Dems in name only.

    I predict another close one, but I would love to see your prediction come true.

    I was a Reagan Democrat, and then became a Republican under Clinton - used to be the Democrat primary in Kentucky decided the state elections - no longer


    PS: in the optics of full disclosure, I had a brief stint as a Ross Perot malcontent

    I was never a registered Dem. I was fairly liberal as a teenager and into my early 20's but fiscally speaking, I was always conservative.

    My parents were Dems. Still registered I guess but Jimmy Carter (1976) was the last time they voted Dem. They're still embarrassed.

    I was profoundly influenced in a positive way by Ronald Reagan. The contrast between him and Jimmy Carter sold me on being a Republican. I was and always have been both a social and fiscal conservative.

    In full disclosure I was a registered Dem from 1983 - 1998. We were allowed to register as high school seniors. I initially registered as a Republican, but my high school teacher and many of my classmates essentially browbeat me into changing it to Dem. Even my parents freaked out. As IPD stated, in Kentucky politics in those days, the Democratic Party was so dominant in most place that the Democratic primary was were the action was in terms of voting.

    After I graduated from UK and stayed in Lexington, I changed my registration to the GOP and have never looked back.

    I voted Carter the first time. The Hispanic mayor of Northcrest and I were thrown out of the Democrat Party on the same day. The Dimms pretty much told us , "remain silent and send checks."

    My yellow dog mother voted for Clinton. The first Assembly of God church never opened the doors without my mother attending. My mother could never vote Republican. When the Sultan of Sleaze ran for a second term, my mother didn't go to the polls. With every scandal, the Sultan would grab a 5 pound bible and motor to a black church.

    Days after I voted for Carter, my father of color warned me of my mistake. He never let me forget my mistake till he died of leukemia at 75.

    My grandfather the deacon was a democrat. Carter was the last president he voted for. He was pro-life .

    He sat the rest out. He never voted for a republican even though his dad was one. My grandmother the most pious woman I ever knew, voted for H. She said: "I don't know what ever happened to that Al Gore he used to be such a nice boy" in reference to abortion.

    That was a bridge to far for my FDR socialist socially conservative grandparents.

    If they were alive today I bet even paw paw would vote Trump given the LGTBQererty immorality, rioters, flag burning, kneeling and abortion. He might of needed 3 clothes pins to do it but I think even he could have been gotten off the sidelines and voted for the adulterer to save the country from the D@mned godless democrats

    I'm technically an independent-libertarian-Christian but I have no choice but to vote Republican because of the flaky Dims. They promote abortion, denounce Christian values, removing Law&Order, removing weapons, censorship, replacing private transportation, removal of Charter and private schools, and the removal of Capitalism/US Constitution. Only a complete Marxist moron would back that plan. If you are pragmatic you will never see eye to eye with a dreamer.

    The values of the left continue to drift away from God. More and more good people are leaving them as as result.

    True, they use that platform to rationalize sin. For a sinner (that refuses to repent) the Dim party is a safe haven for not taking responsibility for sins, parenthood, crimes committed, and not paying their bills.

    Walk Away is gaining momentum. Walk Away members share a triple digit IQ. Walk Away is no place for Maxine, AOC and the TDS patient.

    When you know you're completely wrong and you grill an innocent man anyway this is what you get. A bunch of angry cops interrogating a suspect because they don't personally like him.
