Resignation from the Republican Party

Ever since I rooted for Tom Dewey to beat Harry Truman in 1948 – 68 years – I have considered myself a Republican. No more. As of now, I am a conservative Independent. I will not be associated with a party which would nominate a man such as Donald J. Trump as its presidential candidate.

The GOP has just committed suicide. May its death be as swift and painless as possible.

"It has now become the doctrine of a large clan of politicians that political honesty is unnecessary, slow, subversive of a man's interests, and incompatible with quick onward movement."

Thought for Today

"Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost."
