People need to vote on policy decisions, not race, or hate, or fear-mongering. Both parties use those tactics because they work and it's unfortunate that most people don't see past them. Agree with no invasion of privacy, etc. but I also don't think it's a single party issue.
While I agree that historical positions of the two parties doesn't mean much, the more important reasons this guy gave for becoming a Republican don't have anything to do with that.
