Excerpts from an article that shows the author's dissatisfaction with the direction of the Republican party. The article made me wonder if there were other long-time Republicans who are dissatisfied with the direction of their party. (edit) I cut out only the following to illustrate my question. The actual article has a lot more and is an interesting read regardless of whether you agree or disagree. http://www.longislandpress.com/2010/03/24/off-the-reservation-republican-party-1856-2010/ I do not think the Republican party is dead, and I'm not posting this to try to rile rabid right-wingers up. I'm just curious. The Republicans in congress are so uniform in how they vote; are their supporters that uniform? I know that there have been times I have been very dissatisfied with the Democrats, and times when I felt more represented by certain Republicans.
