Found this "letter to the editor" on DailyKos:

I have been a registered Republican all of my adult life, but after observing the Bush administration for the past five years, I feel obliged to express my public outrage at the actions of a president who claims to represent my party.

The Republican Party I joined 25 years ago believed in fiscal responsibility.
Under the "leadership" of President Bush, domestic spending has risen at the fastest rate since Lyndon Johnson's "great society," and of all the pork-filled bills passed by Congress, Bush has not vetoed even one.

Consequently, the deficit has ballooned, and future generations face an ever-growing mountain of debt.

Is this fiscal responsibility?

The old Republican Party championed the individual against the might of Washington, D.C., but this president in his arrogance thinks checks and balances don't apply to him.
He asks us to trust his judgment with our civil liberties, but why should we?

His judgment must be questioned because the only thing that matches the administration's arrogance is its incompetence.

One only has to consider the prosecution of the Iraqi occupation, the shambles of post-war reconstruction or the hurricane response to realize that this administration is not fit to be trusted with the rights and liberties that generations of Americans have sacrificed to acquire and preserve.

President Bush has called for an investigation to find out who leaked the information about his domestic spying program.

In reality, it is this appallingly arrogant administration's blatant and egregious abuses of power that should be investigated.

It's great to start off the year with Republicans jumping ship on the Bush Crime Family. Some of those "positive" traits the writer mentioned about the Republican party sound pretty Libertarian. Let the GOP sink to the ground along with the Bush Crime Family, if you feel like William T.S. in the letter does then join the Libertarian party and get it off the ground and running. America needs you!

Bravo, William. I came over to catch up on your posts and to give you a link to a post that I think you'll enjoy and may want to do your own post about.

Delilah writes for Democratic Underground, and this is a post she wrote about a DC soap opera that is just starting to make the news: http://ascrivenerslament.blogspot.com/2006/01/fiance-jilted-abramoff-indicted.html

Hope all is well, and Happy New Year. Peace.

If an occupier who had no right or reason to be in my country killed an innocent family in my neighborhood, I'd be an insurgent, too. I'd turn back into a monkeywrencher (used to dress in black and pull stakes from construction sites and spraypaint billboards in my angsty youth).

Thanks much, but compared to your blog, mine looks like scribbles in a journal. I'll be sure to nominate you, too, and once I get my blogroll (within 48 hours I hope), I'll be sure to add you. Peace.

much love and thanks for all the love, your blog is awesome too, the link you gave me doesnt work but i kinda know a lil about that soap opera where the fiance of Abramoff got pissed and ratted him out. I have some liberal friends who told a bit about it and how a scourned woman can bring you down for your sins. Funny shit, especially since it will cost a lot of Republicans their jobs! God bless ya and take care Kat.
