Leaving the Left

I saw this on Sunday, and haven’t gotten around to mentioning it until today. I thought I’d let a [former?] liberal explain my feelings about the so-called ‘progressives’ that seem to have completely lost their bearings in this country. Give it a read; Keith Thompson says it better than I can (although I’m about to say it anyway).

Many say that the country is ‘moving right’—some have said the same about me as my views fall more and more in line with the ‘conservatives’—but that’s not the case at all. The Republican Party is largely run by moderates today (pro-immigration, pro-equality, and generally quite progressive as compared to their predecessors), while the Democrats ramble on about racial quotas and how spreading freedom and prosperity is somehow bad.

Scott Bradford has been putting his opinions on his website since 1995—before most people knew what a website was. He has been a professional web developer in the public- and private-sector for over twenty years. He is an independent constitutional conservative who believes in human rights and limited government, and a Catholic Christian whose beliefs are summarized in the Nicene Creed. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University. He loves Pink Floyd and can play the bass guitar . . . sort-of. He’s a husband, pet lover, amateur radio operator, and classic AMC/Jeep enthusiast.
