    Default Joe Piscopo’s confessions of a disillusioned Democrat

    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.
    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.
    Congratulations Mr. Piscopo. Better late than never.

    How many of you have woken up from the stupor like Mr. Piscopo? Reagan was once a Democrat as well.
    Senator Rand Paul is alive because of modern medicine and because his attacker punches like a girl.

    Well, if Joe Piscopo says it....
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I know how he feels. I used to be a Republican. I'm glad that it is in the past.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I used to vote Democrat, and then I learned that my idol Joe Piscopo stopped being one, and that broke my heart. "Say it ain't so, Joe", I said. But then, I woke up one morning, and realized I was only sad because he was right. He was the voice from the darkness, the prophet showing me the way. How could I have refused the call? Ever since then, life had meaning again. I remembered laughter. I remembered the smell of pines on the mountains. I remembered bald eagles, soaring above the sky. I remembered how awesome pirate hats and tiny bells are. I remembered the joy of punching a redcoat in the face. But most importantly, I remembered how George W. Bush successfully ended conflict in the Middle East, brought freedom to Iraq, and banished Islamism forever.

    Oh, and I love your sig, by the way. Shocking for an INTP, I know.

    Outgrowing Democrat and Republican is bare minimum.
