Paul Gessing's two page confession sounded like a GOP advertisement. I, too, am a political convert but have only this short paragraph to confess mine. In practically all my 85 years I was an independent voter and still not registered with any political party. However, that does not stop me from never voting for a republican candidate again. I've seen what the GOP has done to our country. Their constant bickering over less government and no taxes thoroughly sickens me. Who pays for our roads, schools, Medicare, Social Security, Etc.? The Limbaugh deciples all benefit from these things they complain about. Gessing needs to take another look at what he just gave up.
