Today I made good on my threat ending my relationship with the Republican Party and reregistered as a refusenik, (independent). I was inspired by the mainly Jewish movement that stood up again a corrupt Soviet Communist System. In Oregon we can put anything in the other column.
My reasons for leaving are first the string of losses in Oregon form 200 to 2012 because of ether Oregon GOP not filling a strong candidate or campaign mismanagement, relying on phone baking and singling occupancy homes over high density apartment and condos in my area.
Second reason is Immigration disaster. On Jun 16 Issue of National Review published their anti immigration issue. On article Electing a New People by Peter Brimelow & Edwin S. Rubenstein, both are known white supremacists, suggested with the with immigration rising and voting democrat and white birth rates falling, the solution is to restrict the influx of non what immigrates. Not only this strategy is racist but out right illogical. Both failed to note the rising population of Non-white native born vote vs. declining White population. An equivalent would be in a sinking rowboat, one rectifies the situation by shooting more holes in the boat. The Republican conservative base took the bait and started espousing immigration reform in a form reminiscent of Orwellian Double speak, by saying reform, but really mean ending immigration. The demonization of Hispanics drove minorities, and fair minded whites and evangelicals to the democratic resulting GOP losing control of power in California and eventually in the US.
Finally I just go sock of busting my but for a not perfect but reasonable GOP candidate to only get shot down by conservatives in the Republican party. I tried my hardest to reason with them but the social conservative would rather throw away their vote and then have the audacity to complain when the liberal wins.
