I was a dem in the 60's and as the party moved further into kookville I left and became a conservative. Conservative and libertarian values represent my interest far more than the loonytune dems do. And the republican party more closely follows (but certainly not always) those values. We work within the party to improve it.

Lost my vote in 2000 and have continued to lose it as they lurched further and further to the far right.
I'm not too enamored with the Democratic Party to say the least, but they are what's left of a moderate to center-right party in this country as the real left wing has no real voice on a national level.

This line always gets me. Exactly what "kooky" and "loonytune" policies does the Democratic Party espouse? For all intents and purposes they have morphed into something akin to the pre-1990's Republican Party just without the social conservatism.

I asked a very specific question that should be fairly easy for you to answer.
"Exactly what "kooky" and "loonytune" policies does the Democratic Party espouse? For all intents and purposes they have morphed into something akin to the pre-1990's Republican Party just without the social conservatism."

Certainly you have specific reason for thinking the way you do?

Absolutely but you're not really interested in learning, you're playing a game. Sorry, I don't play games with lefties.

So asking you to explain how you arrived at conclusion is playing games? Again, what policies of the modern Democratic party do you consider "loonytoon?" Unless you're a social conservative there's nothing there really out of line with traditional Republicanism.
