James McCoy: No more Bones to hide with Indiana GOP

James A "Jim" McCoy Jr.​ Local Accountant and current Teacher over in China decides to leave the Republican Party and join the Libertarian Party.

So people ask me: why are you suddenly against the GOP?

As I said, I did not leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me and my Reagan Era Conservative values, which in the words of Reagan are based upon Libertarianism.

For 25+ years, I supported candidates, voted Republican and worked for the party. Then I moved off of the coasts (after having lived in CA and the east Coast) and made the mistake of thinking that in Indiana I was joining a Conservative "American" Party.

That is where I learned that Nixon was a Communist and Barry Goldwater (the Father of Modern Conservatism) was a Liberal. That is where I was told that my fiscal conservatism, ideas for small and unobtrusive (or as little intrusion as possible), fair and the lowest possible tax rates for all, equal rights, and especially "freedom of religion" were equated with "progressivism" and "communism". I'm stilled baffled by that, but it seems that anyone that does not attend a proper Republican endorsed church is a "commie".

That is where I encountered the single most corrupt political party I have ever seen, and I work here for the CPC (Editors Note: Communist Party of China).

That is where I really learned to understand the term xenophobia, the irrational fear of foreigners. The primary fear is of brown-skinned foreigners (mainly Mexicans). They love to use cheap Mexican labor on the farms where they burn their crosses, but they resist allowing them to become citizens. It's not just non-white foreigners that are met with the phobia; it's anyone from out of town.

If you move there from another state, even if you are a Republican, you're likely to be greeted by some Al Capone wannabees, assorted Klansman, the cast of deliverance, the offspring of some kissing cousins who left their condoms back at the trailer park when they went off behind the barn at the church picnic, and a few extras from Smoky and the Bandit saying "you ain't from these parts".

After witnessing first-hand the extreme corruption, which is more harmful to the economy than anything else that is going on, and saw the state of the education system (the least educated state in America), and Republican resources being applied to elect Democrats; I had no choice but to resign.

With an AA in accounting, a BA in International Business (with a minor in Economics) and now an MA in International Relations (with essentially three languages), this party which rules over the least educated state, and where 65% do not believe in science, considers my background to be "uneducated". Again, I'm baffled; but I give up trying to figure that out.

This is a party that thinks that Moses was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States and that the First Amendment to the US Constitution declares the US to be not just a "Christian only" nation, but one of a new Republican only Christian denomination that was created in the 1970s and revised when they invented a new version of Jesus on 9/11.

Even with a world-class education, solid Conservative values, business experience and an international resume, there's just no room at the Kornfield Kounty Kristian Inn; so I parked myself with the Libertarians until I decide what to do.

Although not guilty by reason of insanity, there is just not much of anything for anyone in the IN GOP; my last home before returning to the real world.

In the meantime, the main argument in the GOP is "who will be a better President: Hillary or JEB?”
While that is going on, no one seems to see the significance in the fact that Herbert Hoover (1929–1933) was the last Republican elected to the White House without Nixon or a member of the Bush family on the ticket. This still stuns me. The GOP gene pool has become a *shot glass, and some of those genes (well, see the kissing cousins comment above). (NOTE: *original source text was modified after this posting)

Perhaps someday I will return to the national GOP; in the meantime, there needs to be major changes.

These accusations need citations. Who said Moses is one of the Founding Fathers? That Nixon was a Communist? That Republicans debate whether Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush would make the better president? These are hard to believe because I have never heard anything like them from Republicans, and saying these things would be self-destructive for Republicans. McCoy's statements sound exaggerated to me, and I hope these statements are not reported as being Libertarian accusations. So, Mr. McCoy, who said these things?
