This man says it all for me

I didn't grow up in a Democrat household and most everyone I knew was Republican. Reagan's first election, I was in the 9th grade, but I was able to vote for him the 2nd time around.

Breaking up with the GOP

I'm not referring to my marriage to my lovely wife of 23 years, but to my 25-year relationship with the Republican Party. In recent years especially, I have found fewer things in common with the party. I feel used and abused. We've obviously grown in different and incompatible directions.

It's a groan-inducing cliché, I know, but it applies here: I didn't leave the party; the party left me.
