Switching to Dems

Registered Republican,
but voting all Democrat.

I want the GOP leadership
to know—
the religious right, the tea party,
they are the fringe, not the base.

The GOP is wrong.
The priorities are wrong.
They use every ruse to excuse
themselves of culpability.

We need to show
the GOP—
the tea party, the religious right
they are the fringe, not the core.

I took this from a letter to the editor.  I think this letter represents a lot of people who have voted Republican all their lives, but can no longer, in good conscience, support a Republican party that more and more represents the fringe and not mainstream Americans.
