Thanks to its increasing anti-police extremism, the Democrat Party has lost three influential voters in Virginia.The three influential voters — Sheriff Chip Shuler of Smyth County, Sheriff John McClanahan of Buchanan County and Sheriff Brian Hieatt of Tazewell County — were once all Democrats. But not any anymore.Shuler made his switch two Mondays ago when he formally filed a membership application with the Smyth County Republican Committee and the application was promptly approved, as reported by local station WJHL.“I am changing to the Republican Party because of the relentless attack on law enforcement by Democrats in Richmond and Washington. My deputies work hard to serve and protect the citizens

Lots of folks in the old South are Dems because their family have been Dems, and conservatives, for generations. The extreme leftist tilt of the current Dems are steadily driving people out.

Ok fine. But keep in mind that here in small town America, people change parties just to win elections. They have no ideological path at all except for what gets them or keeps them a job.

I''m a little confused. The Democrat Party has been anti-police and soft on crime for decades. What took them so long to leave?

So, perhaps there is hope that Virginia may once again become a sane, conservative state. May have to exclude the top left part that “work” in Washington. If so, do it.

It's big news when it's the Loudoun, Fairfax, and Arlington County sheriffs. That's the heart of the relatively new progressive Virginia smack dab in the DC - NoVa burbs.

I appreciate the new Republicans, but being a Democrat for all these years shows some very bad judgment. I think the 3 need to go through a de-brainwashing pit, and not bring any of those former Democrat ideas with them.

On January 7th, all I had to do, #10, was log in to my county voter registration home page, find my voting record, and change my party affiliation from republican to unaffiliated. It took about two minutes. But, yes, I am still getting bludgeoned with beg-athon texts messages, emails, and political junk mail. At my age, I need to focus now on my own financial affairs and stop pouring retirement money into the campaigns and fraudulent elections. Of course, I am committed to voting for non-RINO pubbie candidates and especially President Trump if he decides to run again. But, I can't do the thousand-dollar contributions anymore.

I remember when our (sleazely) DA switched from Democrat to Republican in Texas oh, 20 years or so ago (he's long since left office). Said at the time, if you're a Democrat elected official in most Texas counties, you have to consider the Three R's when running for re-election: Retire, Resign, Republican.

I believe these sheriffs have finally become aware of the fact that today’s Democrat party is nothing like the party of their youth. In the campaign to attract every fringe group, they have become the party of the radical left. And, that radical left wants nothing to do with Democracy.

The Supreme Court is being asked to decide whether it is discrimination for the government to require only men to register for the draft when they turn 18.The question of whether it is unconstitutional to require men but not women to register could be viewed as one with little practical impact. The last time there was a draft was during the Vietnam War, and the military has been all-volunteer since. But the registration requirement is one of the few remaining places where federal law treats men and women differently, and women's groups are among those arguing that allowing it to stand is harmful.

Obama suggested that urban areas will face more barriers in order to vote, alleging that the law made a "different set of rules for how votes are counted in Atlanta versus how they're counted in the rest of Georgia."

A heartbroken Jon Rahm was forced to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament after being told he had tested positive for Covid-19, moments after he had established a six-shot advantage at the top of the leaderboard. The Spaniard had hit an incredible 64 to put himself in pole position to take home the £1.2million prize money but his test result means he now has to pull out of the competition. The world No 3 had hit a hole-in-one in the second round before three birdies in the third left him on 18 under par, equal to Ben Hogan’s tournament record for the lowest three-round score.
