Orange Juice blogger Art Pedroza has decided to quit the Republican Party. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kind of been on the outs with the local GOP for a while now; independent thinking and vocalizing opinions that werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t handed down by the machine are frowned upon by local Republicans.
I am declaring myself a Free Man. The fastest growing bloc of voters does not hue to any party. I am talking of course about DTS (Decline to State) voters. That is what I am going to do. Scott, if you are reading this, please consider it my resignation from the O.C. GOP Central Committee.
I spoke with Art briefly earlier this week about this decision and he shared with me a couple of his goals as a Ã¢â‚¬Å“free man.Ã¢â‚¬Â IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m really interested to see if a political activist like Art can make as many waves as part of an unofficial party.
In the words of Commie Girl, “See you, Suckers.” Only I hope not to actually have to see any of you anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong – I am sure that I will back a few Republicans. Ron Garcia in Brea comes to mind. But most of you simply aren’t worth it. You don’t serve the public – you serve yourselves. Ã‚Â¡AdiÃƒÂ³s Republicanos!
Muchos huevos, SeÃƒÂ±or. Muchos.[Read Art's entire post here]
