    Probably not. This guy has always been a conservative. I'm not sure why he was in the Democratic party to begin with.

    This defection by this lone representative will be a mere blip on the pond and quickly forgotten. Next November we'll see if the people want totalitarianism or Democracy. If they want Democracy, the "Democrats" will be tossed out of office by the dozens as they should be. Obviously few of them have ever bothered to read the Constitution. All they care about is power and the power they wield over the peons out in the boondocks.


    Right.... So that is the difference. Please expand. In what way are democrats supporters of totalitarianism and republicans supporters of democracy?? All evidence points that republicans may not be totalitarian, but they do not care much for republican government. This is clearly shown by all the republicans rejection of Obama even though he is the democratically elected leader of this country. I dislike obama, but he is the president, and if you support democracy you can oppose obama politically, but Republican opposition goes beyond that. They have no respect for the fact that he is democratically elected. They irrationally hate him, and the fact that he was elected would not stop them from removing him from office by any means necessary!! I have seen secession threads!! If that is not a rejection of the democratic process in this country, I do not know what is.
    I'm a Tarte, what!! You want some of this??

    It's interesting to see so many with open arms considering what the RNC thought about him just a little while ago:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nbv2EC9u6Ns"]YouTube- Parker Griffith states America's Greatest Enemy is....[/ame]

    I guess all that doesn't matter, now.

    Why Bush backed Specter when there was a real R challenger is beyond me. His bit about Scottish Law during the Clinton Impeachment was an awakening to a moron. If you didn't know anything about him, that would tell you all you needed to know.

    They named a damned website after this guy: Twitter (Serial Twit).

    LOL! I'm downloading this video so I can call the GOP out on this later. I wouldn't doubt it if they remove this video from YouTube since he's on their side now.

    Political ideologies vary by state. Where I live (Louisiana) the Democrats are pro-life, pro-gun, anti-health care reform, and anti-welfare. I'm sure it's very similar in Alabama. So at the federal level Griffith is a conservative guy and it's no surprise his district voted for McCain.

    The switching party from Democrat to Republican isn't a new thing either. Rodney Alexander (from my state) was a life long Democrat and served as a Democrat during his terms in the state house, but once he got to the federal elections he switched to Republican because he quickly learned that he wasn't a real liberal at all.

    What makes you a centrist?

    That first statement is just idiotic. I mean, duh? Left -- Center -- Right. You do know your left from your right, right?

    What makes you a centrist?

    In a word... pragmatism. Neither party has all the answers. The right jumped in bed with Christian evangelicals back in the 80s. The left wants to expand federal government, unchecked, too big, too expensive. Both parties are in bed with banks and big business.

    The Federal Government does have a roll, general welfare, public safety, consumer protection, but it should not govern personal morality, private lives.

    Ok, now that we know that you know what it is supposed to be, let's see you back that.
