After this latest national disgrace in which our President once again abandoned the people who supported him in order to appease those who hate him and hate all that the Democratic Party stands for, I can no longer be a Democrat.
I have not left the Party. The Party has left me. And I am grieving because of it.
But until some hoped-for day in the future when those we elect actually stand and fight for the ideals our Democratic Party was built on, I will not call myself a Democrat. When this party again defends the poor and the powerless, when it protects the weak against attacks from the rich and powerful, when it speaks for labor and jobs and not for greed and corporate corruption, I will happily welcome my Party home.
I don’t see that day coming anytime soon, though. So I will be Montco PA Ex-Dem from this point on.
You have no idea how sad this makes me.
