I am 66 yrs old and have been a lifelong moderate Democrat. I voted for Obama in 2008 and again in 2012 because I felt he hadn't had enough time to implement the changes he wanted. I started to really question my choice shortly after the second election. I finally had to admit that the agenda was all talk and was supporting dishonest, dangerous policies. I was mortified when he turned his back on our law enforcement and Israel. I could finally see that politicians are bought
Reasons I decided to #Walkaway When Hate crimes that were Front Page news became Back Page news if they turned out to be fake. When Obama brought up police brutality at the funeral of murdered police officers in Dallas. When Marxism is celebrated even though it murdered 100 million people in the last century. When identity politics became more valid than having an argument. When you can publicly demonize white males to the point of celebrating them becoming “extinct” (literal
I am a UAW member and for the record I am NOT anti-Union. I am Anti CORRUPT Union. I was raised in a a suburb of Detroit. Both my Mother and my father were hard working, blue collar Union workers. They were factory workers by trade, and our household was pure Democrat and members of the UAW. Politically, I was raised a Democrat but leaned Republican after watching Carter screw America so badly. I voted for Ronald Reagan for the presidency. Even though I wasn't impressed when
Ok .. I became a member of #walkaway a couple days ago but here is my testimony. So I walked away from the Democratic Party when I was about 30 ( I am 37). I didn’t know any better and didn’t care to growing up. I grew up with Democrats and that is how I voted. I remember voting for Gore and hating Bush for whatever reason #brainwashed and my stepdad thought Clinton was awesome but until I got married and had my first kid it dawned on me that so should probably look the candi
I have been a registered conservative since I was 18. I don't like radical ideologues of any variety. The scales are tipped heavily, and nearly exclusively left. The hatred and hypocrisy coming from those who do not value diversity of thought is all a bullying tactic to intimidate and silence people. I'm tired of regressive leftists and entrenched republicans. What is more likely? That half the population's citizens are Nazis and racists, or support Nazis and racists and that
I finally decided to post after following this movement for awhile now. Can I just say that every story I read fills me with such hope, inspiration, joy and just pure thankfulness to be an American. I know that may sound cheesy but after this last election I really wondered if all was lost. I watched Brandon’s video and it echoed everything that I felt about the Democratic party. I have friends who are Democrats, Libertarians, Socialists, Republicans, atheists and Christian.
I was raised in a conservative family. I was married for eight years. I have three beautiful daughters. Divorced in 2012, and finally came out to friends and family. Since then, I’ve had to struggle with posting my political beliefs and opinions on social media. The gay community isn’t an accepting community. It’s their way, or no way. You just follow this gay agenda, or be bashed and humiliated. I voted for Trump in 2016. And I lost over 100 friends on facebook, some even cl
There are men and women merrily masquerading as martyrs for the cause. Sinister sentiments incessantly spewing and twitching out of their mouths like a crack addict in withdrawal, while the conclusions they draw are merely illusions that fall and crumble under reason.
Flip-flopping facts and fiction, changing their moral beliefs with the seasons. But one cannot create balance in the world if the path they walk is uneven, so we must decide if we are really willing to die for w
I have been reading all your stories in this group and I must say I'm very inspired by them! I'm happy to be part of such a wonderful movement. I jumped off the Bernie Bus in 2015 and hopped aboard the Trump Train and never looked back. With all the hateful rhetoric coming from the left, the ones who preach "tolerance" are only tolerant if you think the way they do. We need to go back to agreeing to disagree without violence and hate. We are all human, and we welcome everyone
Just #WalkAway My turn to share. Since this movement is getting stronger and bigger the insane liberal left is getting increasingly radical. I’ve been called all sorts of names such as racist, bigot, Russian bot, xenophobic, homophobic, and so on. You all get the point. I’m actually the opposite. I’m a proud gay American sailor serving our country. My mother is a immigrant. I’m half white. I grew up with my parents voting democrat. I’m assuming promises and free handouts? It’
So happy to be part of this group! I see this movement as the beginning of a New America, breaking free from the shackles of incivility, hatred, fear mongering, identity politics, discrimination and reversing the march towards socialism and the NWO! My heartfelt Thank You to Brandon and all the Patriots! As a teenager, I shook hands with JFK at the American Embassy in Rome, where my father was assigned in the Army Attache. JFK was my idol. A few months later he was assassinat
I’m an artist and musician from Orlando who grew up democrat, and only ever really knew other liberals in my social circles. Bought into the propaganda, without much of a thought, that republicans/conservative were strictly for big business/the rich and that they had an ignorant prejudice against anyone, anything, and anybody that wasn’t status quo.
Voted for Gore, Kerry and Obama both terms. The second term of Obama I noticed the media starting to cover certain things up, an
I am an immigrant from The Dominican Republic. I am an Enrolled Agent Tax Professional involved in the field of tax preparation and audit representation. I always voted Democrat because as an immigrant latino and small business owner, I believed being liberal was right for me until President Trump ran for office. I voted for him and fully support him, but it’s all in secrecy (until now). I was concerned that if my liberal clients, friends, and family found out, my relationshi
Legal immigrant from Romania (19 years ago). Citizen 7 years later. Worked my way thru college and became a police officer (my way of giving back the blessings I’ve received by coming here). Never asked for or received any handouts. No such thing as white privilege. I used to vote democrat before I really knew much about politics. My #walkaway moment was during Obama admin’s declared hate for law enforcement and rise of corruption within the Democratic Party. They sadly reall
I am not your normal republican. I am gay and I live in Tennessee. Throughout most of my life I supported democrats and the left. I thought because I was gay I had to support them. I was told Republicans were out to take my rights away. I feared the Republicans from the day I found out I was gay. When I was about to graduate high school I watched Trump's speech for the first time. Remember at this point I was full support of Hillary. I felt something from what he said. I felt
How do I synopsize the evolution of my transformation into a small snip-it of information suitable to share here? My journey has been long, emotional, and tumultuous. I am an Apache/Mexican citizen of this beautiful country. The youngest child of a single father. Being as such, I was raised with a backbone, not a wishbone. I was obsessed with politics from a very early age. I was an oddity. I was nearly 16 years old and completely enthralled by The Iran-Contra hearings. As a
