An official from Nevada recently announced that he would be ditching the Democratic Party and switching over to the GOP as his former party begins a fast downward slide into complete and total socialism.
According to WND, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee conducted an interview with the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” where he stated that there isn’t any room in the current radicalized version of the Democratic Party for those who are more moderate, even slightly conservatives thinkers.
“They had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist Party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with anymore … ” Lee stated during the interview.
“The working class, or working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore. It all has to do with the elitists and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country of the future,” he said.
“When you’re a pro-life Democrat, a pro-gun Democrat, and you’re a very conservative person, that’s not really well known in the Democratic Party anymore. And so for me to hang on as long as I did, hoping the party would change, it didn’t, it got worse. So therefore, I found a new place that I can put my allegiance to and help. Once again, forget about the last eight years. It’s the next four years that predict the future,” Leed went on to say.
Last month, a socialist-backed slate of individuals took over the state party leadership, which ended up causing every single current staffer to quit their jobs. The fact this massive shift to the left is happening could eventually cause other Democrats to jump ship over to the GOP.
“Today, I switched political parties. The Democratic Party is broken. It’s time to bring people together to get things done. It’s time to stop shouting and start solving problems,” Lee wrote on Twitter.
The fact that Lee shared his party switch might be an indication that he’s considering a run for a higher office. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Lee might well fit in with the Republican Party. That doesn’t mean he is a rock solid conservative. In fact he might be what the GOP needs less of-RINOS.
