A lot of people seem to believe that because I parted ways with the GOP and the right wing, that automatically makes me a left winger or a Democrat now.

If they sign, it’s an acknowledgment that they’ve been uncivil. (Which they have.) If they don’t sign, the Dems will say they refuse to denounce extremism. So, since there’s no political benefit either way, it makes no sense to sign it.

However, when it comes to bailing out the banksters and siphoning money from us to the banksters, both parties are in complete agreement.
