Dear Conservative Americans,
The years have not been kind to you. I grew up in a profoundly Republican home, so I can remember when you wore a very different face than the one we see now. You've lost me and you've lost most of America. Because I believe having responsible choices is important to democracy, I'd like to give you some advice and an invitation.
This is heartfelt, encyclopedically researched, and very good read. It's from someone who describes himself this way: "A 1960s/70s mainstream Republican, which makes me a 2010 socialist/communist fringe Lefty Democrat bent on destroying America. Go figure."
