Democrats Become Republicans! Voila!

All across America conservative democrats are saying adios to their party and becoming full fledged republicans.  The story is here.

I used to know some conservatives democrats, Reagan democrats I guess, and some stayed in the D party and some moved to the R party.  What they shared though, regardless, was fiscal and in many cases social conservatism.  Many people are D's because their parents were.  Also, I have always joked that as soon as a young person gets their first paycheck, expecting a full check and getting 25% less because of taxes, the world smacks them upside the head and they are on the road to being a conservative.  Liberal silver spooners seem to be the only ones that are not affected since mommy and daddy are supplying the dough.

Anyway, I digress.  13 more D's jumped ship at the state level and in one case, the Louisiana House is now 51-50 R.  Yeah!  This number is added to the 675 other switches on election day and 19 houses as well.  Ballotpedia is also a good place to see the results of the democrats crushing defeat last month.  California will be different in 2012 and maybe even Massachusetts.  We can only hope.
