In Kansas, Former Republicans Leave Their Party

Why, in a solidly Republican state, are Republicans defecting en masse to the Democratic Party to run in 2006?

I want to work on relevant issues and not on a lot of things that don't matter.

The Kansas GOP has also moved so far to the right that lifelong Republicans have become somewhat alienated from the more recent conservative zeal of their party, but as the man quoted above implies, it is true that being a Republican today means shying away from real issues. Part of this must owe to the fact that Republican policy ideas aren't in tune with what more Americans want.
