Joe Piscopo’s confessions of a disillusioned Democrat
I’m a Democrat. I’ve been a Democrat my entire life.
I used to utter those two sentences with pride and would shout them from the highest rooftops. Now, I’m almost embarrassed to say those words.
I almost can’t articulate my political affiliation in public (or on the radio) without immediately offering an apology and an explanation.Congratulations Mr. Piscopo. Better late than never.In good conscience, however, I can’t continue to call myself a Democrat.
In becoming an independent, I think I’m maintaining the independent (dare I say, libertarian?) mindedness and patriotism that my parents endowed me with.
How many of you have woken up from the stupor like Mr. Piscopo? Reagan was once a Democrat as well.
