Posted by  ▪  November 25, 2012
As a co-founder of one of the largest California Tea Party groups (SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition), I often am asked why I choose to remain a registered Democrat. In part, it is because the state Republican party doesn’t inspire much confidence. Or, as I like to put it: Better an honest enemy…
