Is that really all that different from somebody who says "I used to be a Republican and now I'm a Democrat"?

It's like that recent viral video of Bill Maher saying something like, "I didn't change, the Democratic Party did."
It’s funny to watch extreme leftists on twitter call Maher a traitor. Lord forbid he should think and speak for himself.

Then what happens when your next party betrays or even disappoints you? You go back to your former party and, so on?
Gotta pick your battles, Vinny. Whatever issues are most important are what you should vote on, in my opinion. So yes, you might end up back in your old party. Why not?

It's not so much that the liberal voices have come back, it's that most all of the conservatives stopped posting. If none of you noticed that, maybe that also explains why. This is what I mean to say. I don’t know if it’s most , but a lot of conservative, libertarian, and conservative-libertarian. ...
