The following article, ‘I Stand for the Ideals of the Republican Party’ — Pennsylvania Sheriff Switches Party Affiliation, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Aside from Justin Amash, who is technically an Independent, or Colin Powell, you hardly ever hear of a Republican deciding to become a Democrat. It doesn’t go that way.
When switching from the left to the right, a person announces they are finally ready to be an adult.
Welcome Sheriff James Albert to the GOP, y’all!
A Southwest Pennsylvania sheriff has deflected to the Republican Party from the Democrats, saying he feels out of place in his former party.
“It was a really difficult decision and I’ve thought long and hard about it, but I feel I stand for the ideals of the Republican Party platform more than the Democrats today,” Westmoreland County Sheriff James Albert stated, according to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
“I’ve been a lifelong Democrat, but a conservative Democrat at that,” he added. “I’m pro-life, a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, a lifetime member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) and, today, I feel my ideals are closer to the Republican Party than Democrats.”
Albert, who was elected sheriff last year, switched over to the Republican Party on Monday.
Joe Biden has come out in recent days and condemned the violence of Antifa and other leftist groups, but so what? That’s not enough. He’s in a position of powerful influence over other Democrats, particularly those running the cities where this violence is taking place.
If he were to chit-chat with these folks and encourage them to turn to Trump and ask for help to quell the riots and violence, they no doubt would follow his lead. But he doesn’t do that because it would be breaking from the current strategy adopted by the party to win in November.
The left wants this chaos. Radicals feel that if the nation is unstable and Trump doesn’t violate the Constitution and do something to stop it, folks will trade liberty for safety and pull the lever for Biden in November.
If he does violate the Constitution, then liberals still win, because others will refuse to show up and vote for him, thus enabling them to win.
They are playing political games with the safety of their own citizens and it is shameful.
