What you said:
Would you explain . . .
Phil would you like to explain your recent change of party registration. You make a wonderful claim to vote at every election despite not being local but fail to mention as a Republican. So, your party switch is attributed to new philosophy or opportunity. We currently have a Republican in office and there for would have to wait until he loses office or switch parties. We deserve more than an opportunist.”

Phil is a Proud Democrat
I became a Democrat because the Republican Party evolved into an organization that no longer places a priority on treating all people with dignity and respect, prioritizing special interests and favoring the One Percent over every day working class Americans. As a human being and a veteran, I could no longer be a part of a Party that tolerates the infiltration of the Alt-Right and nationalist movements and is reckless on national security issues. The Democratic Party has been right, on minority and women's rights, the environment, and national security.
Rep. Matt Gaetz sends alt-right to Trump's State of the Union
The Pensacola News Journal reported that Gaetz invited an infamous alt-right activist and racist internet troll, Chuck Johnston, to the State of the Union speech. PNJ reports that Johnson became known for running an online harassment campaign about the University of Virginia campus rape story plus was banned from Twitter for soliciting donations to “take out” a prominent Black Lives Matter activist. Additionally. Johnson is founder of a right-wing website.
Gaetz said he had no idea who Johnson was even though he gave him the ticket.
However, Politico reported even after Gaetz found out just how controversial Johnson was — the Capitol Police had flagged the name and called Gaetz to inquire about Johnson in a mysterious unrelated matter — the first-term congressman decided not to pull his ticket to President Trump’s speech. Gaetz said he was intrigued by Johnson.
