I'm glad his reasoning is in the news.... I've been saying what Mr. Guillory has been saying for the last 10-years and every democrat told me to put my tin-foil hat on....

EVERYTHING this man said is 100% correct.

Of course as a "Libertarian" you still think he's full of it because Republicans are no better than Democrats....:lamo

All he did was switch from one half of the problem to the other half. If he actually "woke up" he'd be independent.

I view his position as a tea party/libertarian position..

The guy obviously hasn't figured everything out yet but he is on the right track and has the right idea.

If it matters I don't like NEOCONS because they're no different than democrats....

Did you watch the vid and hear his reasons for switching parties? I'm thinking you didn't.

It's not that he became a Repubkican, but rather shucked the Liberal agenda....he left the plantation.

What one calls themselves doesn't matter - their ideas matter.

I share the same ideas Mr. Gillory holds, however I'm a libertarian and I'm a libertarian for the same reasons Mr. Gillory explained.

I don't want government dictating freedoms, I don't want government providing for people in an attempt to control those people because they rely on handouts..... These are libertarian ideas.

Even though it was clearly rehearsed, this is a very intelligent, well spoken man, far superior in relaying a message than the phony propped up in the White House today. Regardless of whatever political party he represents, I hope he seeks federal office in the future - his kind is needed in Washington, desperately.

Hes already in office..... He finally realized the democratic party is authoritarian and that their "free handouts" translates into slavery (which it does).

The majority of the southern democrats switched to the republican party 40 years before he did, thus making his historical analysis fairly horse****.

Neither party gives a **** about the people.

Yes, he's in office but in the Louisiana State legislature, not the US Senate, unless I've got that wrong - I'd like to see him in Washington.

As usual, you're the one race baiting....sadly typical.

I don't care which team he plays for. They're both bad and going from Democrat to Republican only changes which color of kool-aid he professes to prefer.

He's in Washington - just as a member of the House - hes one of 435 members that makeup the House.

A knowledge of history and the evolution of the southern electorate. I guess you can ignore reality though, if you say "wrong" whenever it rears it's ugly head.

Let me get this right... this guy switched parties.. from the party of the President that has been caught using a known program as it should... to the party that created the program and put it in place in the first place...

This guy must be nuts....

Reality. You should try it.
I know history..... Republicans didn't flip democrat over "Jim Crow laws" - democrats legislated "Jim Crow laws" via the Tenth Amendment and republicans were opposed to them.

Then around 1965 democrats started using minorities for personal gain.... Now we have housing projects with minorities who rely on government to subsidize their entire life and they will continue to vote democrat just as long has they have a free roof over their head, free phone, free cable, free tv and free food on the table..... In order to be free one must be independent - and minorities generally aren't independent - they're dependent on democrats redistributing wealth to them and keeping them enslaved on those "entitlements."

I thought he was in Louisiana's state house since the video identifies him as a Senator and I'm pretty sure Louisiana's two federal Senators are Vitter and Landreau

Actually, his historical knowledge is quite impressive.

It was the Democrats the voted against the civil rights bills, in greater numbers than the Repubkicans.

The burden of proof is on you...

Show me republicans flipping party lines over "jim crow laws."

You do realize it was republicans who actually drafted emancipation laws, and total civil liberties to blacks and other minorities and it was the democrats that opposed them entirely?

You do realize in the south racist whites are democrats do you not?

The democratic party is the party of racism.

Democrats did flip to Republican when they were killed by Federal law. A section that was solid Democrat suddenly turned red. Just a coincidence though.

Then around 1965 democrats started using minorities for personal gain.... Now we have housing projects with minorities who rely on government to subsidize their entire life and they will continue to vote democrat just as long has they have a free roof over their head, free phone, free cable, free tv and free food on the table.....

Race baiting again? You guys on the right are hilarious - "Liberals play the race card" but the race baiters in this thread....

You realize that in 1910 Republicans were "Progressive" right?

It's funny how far you'll go to defend the Republican party for someone who isn't one.
