Roger Stone Quits Republican Party

Roger Stone, a long time GOP operative dating back to Nixon, has left the Republican Party and joined the Libertarian Party. The GOP is never going to change its warmongering, statist and anti-constitution stripes. Perhaps the GOP just needs to die a natural death.
Roger J. Stone Jr, the celebrated political consultant, lobbyist and strategist, and youngest staffer on Richard Nixon’s 1972 re-election campaign, announced Wednesday that he has quit the Republican Party. Stone - who has been noted for his use of opposition research for Republican candidates - is now registered as a Libertarian...I voted for Ron Paul in the Florida Republican Primary in my last official act as a Republican. I leave the GOP with a heavy heart. Theodore Roosevelt left the party in 1912 and he came back. Ron Paul left the party in 1988 and he came back.
