Lifelong Republican express his doubts

I’ve been a Republican all my life. But I believe that this nation and the Republican Party can’t survive four more years of Donald Trump. He’s transformed the party into an obscene caricature of itself that Lincoln, Eisenhower and Reagan would not recognize. His lies have assaulted the very concept of truth. His insults for our allies and his cozying up to dictators such as Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un have not made America First, but America Alone.

Joe Biden will bring integrity and dignity back to the presidency. No more childish name-calling, midnight Twitter rants or daily chaos.

Only a return to civility, cooperation and steady leadership can rebalance the American political system and restore America’s place in the world. Biden is the only candidate on this year’s ballot who can do that. That’s why, for the first time in my life, I’m voting for a Democrat for president.

Sad to see someone attacked for seeing through the Trump train wreck that is destroying this country. Him and McConnell bot need to go

Larry Caillouet,

Thank you for your letter. It's nice to know some of us still have independent minds.

Kudos for speaking your mind.


Yeh right, you’ve been a Republican. Guarantee your a life long democ rat. Still crying over your Hillary support doll all tucked away in your safe place. But just like a true democ rat, every word that exits your mouth is a lie.
