You know, I have received quite a few PMs from people asking me why I changed my lean from Conservative to Independent. The answer is in the link. Conservatism has become a completely different animal than it was when I was growing up.The anger of one conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court justice boiled over last year when he called a fellow justice a "bitch" and threatened to "destroy" her, according to a published report.
So why did I change my political lean from Conservative to Independent? Because I do not want to be associated with the kind of lunacy that I am now seeing. In retrospect, I believe that it was an excellent decision on my part. No, I don't like Obama, but I will be the first to say that he loves America too. I just don't like his policies. And no, I don't believe that calling a State Supreme Court Chief Justice a bitch, and threatening to destroy her, is anything that Conservatives would have done back in my day. So, to today's Republican party, I say "Adios". I'll keep Goldwater and Buckley. You can have Beck and Palin. As for Justice Prosser? A session on a psychiatrist's couch wouldn't hurt. Just sayin'.
