I was Walk Away before Walk Away was a thing

Walk Away

I think the new Walk Away movement is bloody brilliant. I really do.

It’s something else seeing a massive exodus from the Democrat Party unfold before our eyes.

The Walk Away movement began when this video hit the scene:

 
If you’ve read the story of my transformation from Liberal to Conservative, you know I too walked away.

Of course I walked away fifteen years ago. But for a lot of the same reasons that Democrats are choosing to walk away today.

Given what the Left has become in the intervening years, I’m not at all surprised to see this Walk Away Movement gaining strength.

And I don’t just mean through a #WalkAway hashtag on Twitter. Though, that’s going gangbusters.

This Walk Away Movement is unfolding in real life.

Yeah. It is an earthquake.

And despite the rumbling tremors beneath their feet, the Democrat Party stands there oblivious to it.

While the Democrats promote open borders, increased taxes and a total disregard for the rule of law, their voting base is fleeing.

All the lies the Democrat Party has told over the decades about “fighting for the working class?” Well, folks are starting to realize they were lies.

What the Democrats can’t comprehend is that embracing socialism, hating America while attacking the American people isn’t a winning strategy.

In fact, it’s driving people away.

To be sure, Donald Trump has a lot to do with this Walk Away Movement.

The monster he’s portrayed as in the news media and among Democrats and Hollywood just doesn’t mesh with the accomplishments he’s made in less than two years.

He puts the American people first.

And it shows – not just in his words. It shows in the results.

Jobs flooding back, consumer confidence on the rise, wages increasing, taxes going down, the border enforced – these things are self-evident.

And the Democrat Party’s only response is shrill anger, violent rhetoric, outlandish portends of gloom and doom, and Nazis, Nazis, Nazis.

This is why people are joining the Walk Away Movement.

They’ve had enough of the angry vitriol and sputtering hatred.

They’ve had enough of divisive Identity Politics and endless appeals to Victimhood.

They’ve had enough of a party that treats them like second-class citizens while going all out to defend those in the country illegally.

And rather than realize that their control over their voters is slipping through their fingers, the Democrat Party doubles down on the very things that are driving those voters away.

One final note.

If you haven’t seen this latest ad from the RNC, you have to watch it.

 
This is the Democrat Party in 2018.

The lunatics are running the DNC Asylum.

And frankly, you’d have to be a psycho not to walk away from that.

    Well I was president of my college YD’s 55 years ago. But Ronnie was ahead of me, and you, he walked away in ’60 – – 58 years ago!

    All men in my clan were “D” til my son. But, all “R” are not conservative
    , all “D” were not progressive! I never was leftist;I was a “D”!

    I hadn’t watched the “Walk Away” video before now. It’s excellent, and thank God people are listening.

    If these words and pictures against Trump had been against Obama, there would have been a lot of people arrested, ending up in prison.

    Why not now?

    There should be.laws against threatening others, as they do. Conservatives and Trumpers are too tolerant and forgiving.

    Dianny, I just read your conversion story. It was pretty instructive. I plan on sharing it with a bunch of folks. My journey from the dark side was a bit more abrupt than yours.

    I, too, was a lib (or thought I was) in my misguided youth of the late 60’s & early 70’s.
    I lived in what became Schumer’s & later Weiner’s district in Queens. Although I was 9 during the “Summer of Love” and 11 during Woodstock, and thus too young to participate, the whole anti-war, anti-establishment, hippie culture was prevalent, and I bought it. Then came Watergate which solidified it. I turned 18 in the summer of 1976 and promptly voted for Carter. I was at NYU for the next couple of years, so you can imagine where my head was then.

    But then a funny thing happened. In 1978 I started working full time. When I took a look at my first paycheck, I was SHOCKED at how much the government at all levels was taking. I started checking my assumptions & paying attention to how the money was being (mis) spent. At how much they were wasting and how much corruption there was. I noticed that even if you were for some government program on a philosophical or moral basis, say something like School Lunch programs or Head Start, etc., it was still a waste. For every dollar crooked politicians threw at a problem, after the waste, mismanagement and corruption, you’d be lucky if a nickel stuck.

    I didn’t have the answers, but my feeling then (and now) is that except in rare, unavoidable cases, things like the army, cops, firemen, etc., the worst possible and least efficient way to address a problem was through government. I knew that if government=corruption, regardless of how well intentioned, I want less of it.

    By 1980 I voted for Reagan and never looked back. For the next 25+ years I kept my nose clean & shoulder to the grindstone. I bought a house, had a family and stayed out of other peoples business and politics. My philosophy became very simple. Leave me the hell alone & stop telling me what to do, and I’ll be glad to do the same to you, and we’ll get along fine.

    Then 2008 happened. That Joe The Plumber moment raised the hairs on the back of my neck about what I knew would be coming. In February 2009 I read Levin’s Liberty & Tyranny & got ANGRY. The last chapter in L&T was about what to do about it, about becoming a Paul or Paulette Revere, getting politically activated.

    I attended my first Tea Party rally April 15, 2009 at City Hall in NYC with 13,000 other Patriots & never looked back. At that event Sandra Smith from Fox News saw my “Stop stealing from our children” sign and asked me why I was there. If you remember the Spring of 2009, Barry was spending money hand over fist. The so-called stimulus bill, Tarp II, Cash for Clunkers, etc. I told her (and Cavuto on a live feed) that it was immoral to keep spending all this money that we didn’t have. That we were robbing future generations and it had to stop. I said there were books written about my father’s generation as having been “The Greatest Generation,”
    and that I didn’t want mine to be remembered as the worst. The one that was given everything and threw it all away.

    I became a hard core activist & have been rallying, petitioning, communicating, donating and campaigning ever since.

    As always, thank you for all you do in this regard.

    People are waking up to the fact that conservatives are classical liberals in reality.

    I was never a leftist because I come from a family that the left left behind during the Great Depression. My teeth were cut learning what was done to them. My great grandparents and grandparents taught us that ‘for the little guy’ was a slogan and a ruse and would point to real world examples to illustrate that. What also added to that was/is my curiosity and love of learning. That was one side of the family with the other side working directly for Reagan as governor (Yes I volunteered and yes I did meet and talk to the man).

    However I would be less than dishonest if I didn’t admit I wasn’t always this conservative. I have moved further right with age especially in regards to abortion both philosophically and scientifically. I grew up.

    I much appreciate Dianny because she always shows me something I have missed but really do need to know….plus she makes me laugh with her sense of humor.

    Thank you.

    Ok so Dianny I went and read your link of your transformation and I read the responses to it.

    I wonder if you realize that you basically foretold the coming of Trump?!

    My first national vote was for Ronaldus Magnus’ first term. Was always an “R” after that,(although Poppy Bush was like wet toilet paper to me), til early 2004, when I broke independent. But I am proud to say I have never voted for any democrat in my life. About the only thing I ever did right, lol, but I will take it.

    Never had to walk away, cause I never walked in. I was anti-Democrat and anti-anti-Vietnam since the late Sixties … and I was born in late 1955

    I may very well be the first boomer defector
