Kelley Reep: A new Independent

October 19, 2013 

I have been a registered Republican since high school, and even though I’ve often thought of changing my voter affiliation, I have never taken the action – until now.

The Republican Party should be ashamed of what it has become and how narrow-minded it is that it would shut down the federal government and make people go without pay just to make a point.

In N.C., it is no better. The hypocrisy of Republican Gov. Pat McCrory taking away benefits for teachers while enriching his own Cabinet is appalling.

Sign me: “Happily Independent.”
