Why the Republican Party Lost My Vote

I used to be a Republican.

Well, I consistently voted Republican. I never officially joined the Republican Party. There were one or two votes for another party, but the majority of my votes were for Republicans. Before I was able to vote, I supported Republicans, as did my family. In fourth grade we did a project showing which presidential candidate we supported. We made a booklet with newspaper clippings talking about the candidate we supported. Mine had a big “N” in red white and blue on the cover, showing anyone who looked at it that I supported Nixon.
