The Democrat Party continues to bleed supporters as yet another one announces his departure from the party. Texas House Democrat Ryan Guillen proudly announced he is joining the Republican party.
Welcome to the party of freedom, opportunity & prosperity @RyanGuillen.
As Dems move further left, they're abandoning the people of South Texas & their values.
Rep. Guillen's decision to switch parties is indicative of a shifting landscape in South Texas. pic.twitter.com/6gwEV0DNqB

“Friends, something is happening in South Texas, and many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington, D.C., are not our values, not the values of most Texans,” Guillen announced. “The ideology of defunding the police, of destroying the oil and gas industry and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas.”
He’s being welcomed with open arms on the local and national level.
“I am proud to welcome state Representative Ryan Guillen to the GOP. The Republican Party is the party of faith, freedom, and opportunity, and we will continue to stand for these ideals in Texas and across the country,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said about the switch. “With trailblazers like Representative Guillen, we will continue to make gains in South Texas and grow the party in our way to victories up and down the ballot in 2022.”
“John Lujan’s upset victory earlier this month in a district with a majority Hispanic population already proved that Texans are fed up with the failures of Democratic leadership and Ryan Guillen’s party switch makes that fact all the more clear,” Republican State Leadership Committee President Dee Duncan added. “Today’s Democrat leaders are so focused on appeasing their fringe-left base by putting teachers’ unions ahead of parents, pushing socialist tax and spending schemes, and fighting for open border policies, that even elected officials in their own party cannot support their radical agenda anymore. We welcome Representative Guillen to the Republican Party with open arms and look forward to working with him as he partners with the Republican majority to deliver solutions for the people of his district.”
will Guillen be a RINO helping the democrats or will he actually be a republican?
Guess we shall see!
Guillen, who had been a moderate Dem for years, decided to abandon the Democrat party after seeing how much this party has swung to the left in the past two decades. The Democrat party, as we knew it, is no longer HOW we knew it in years passed. The Democrat party of yesterday is quickly being politically replaced by today’s Socialist “party,” and its Socialist supporters are pushing further and further towards a one-party system for America. Eventually, it may very well become the one-party government for ALL 50 STATES, which is the goal of ALL Socialist “Dems.” And the principles which have led and governed America since its inception will be totally abandoned and replaced by Communism, the ultimate goal of what we have seen already begun happening in the U.S. If this continues and the Republican party weakens, then there is very little hope for curtailing Socialism, which will then blossom and flourish to fulfill its agenda.
As long as I am still living there will NEVER be a socialist leader in any part of our wonderful country. I didn’t wear the uniform of our military just to see it become a socialist dictatorship – that would only happen over my dead body!
I know, I have serious doubts when it comes to trusting the dems/COMMUNIST REGIME!!! But I do think however that even moderate dems are watching closely as CONSERVATIVES roll on, we do have a few things to be positive about!!!
We know the liberal,progressive,socialist,marxist,dumbocrap party are the enemy of the american people. They love their illegal immigrants, and hate the american citizen,why do u think their is an open border,time for rebellion against this corruption.
I believe there are MANY more dems that see the CATASTROPHIC DAMAGE CAUSED BY biden and his ENTIRE REGIME!!! I am happy to see rep. Guillen saw the light, hopefully more will see that light!!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC!!!
LETS GO BRANDON!!!
The problem, IS, a demoncrap that switches is not necessarily a conservative but rather closer to a RINO! So even though he helps dilute the DCAP (demoncrap/communist/atheist party) ranks, he will have to prove himself to me. Ya think he could see the red tidal wave coming and he didn’t want to get “washed away”!
Don’t paint us all with a broad brush….JFK democrats and Reagan republicans are not RINOs…we are Constitutional Conservatives. Right now the Dem party has been taken over by the Socialist Commies and no one with half a brain, would stick around that put rid mess.
Right on bro! I don’t see much about the heehaws that I like lately. Good to know that others are waking up to the narrow socialist agenda of donkeys and serfdom for us forever like Roosiaz, Cubjazz, and venezuelazz. America for the Americans and ok for LEGAL Immigration but nuttin for illegals. Don’t hide the School agenda for CRT on the sly and making parents out to be terrorists as the effingbeeeye is doing to us now. Meritless Garbelland LIES to Congress and also to US. Whotta dumbocrapepaperarsewipe!
Good News finally.
I think it’s good that he’s switching, but it might be a ploy. All I could say I hope he does mean it and really become a conservative Republican
The dummycrap death party is about to become irrelevant, even people in their own party are jumping ship, that’s all u need to know. This liberal,progessive,socialist,marxist,commie party has become the enemy of the American people,hidenbiden and minions have declared war on the american citizen, by opening our borders to illegal criminals,drug,guns,fentanal,human trafficers,terrorists.
Hopefully Rep. Guillen will retain his traditional views when the going gets tough. Although I’m happy he made the change for the reasons he cited, I wonder what took him so long to see reality?
Let’s hope all these Democrat defectors don’t turn out to be RINOs. I am wondering if this is not a Democrat trick. Be careful and judicious in your excitement for defectors.
There is a lot of buyers remorse out there. A lot of those are too embarrassed to talk about it.
The left should be brought up on charges for committing fraud against the American electorate. They had to know how compromised Biden’s brain was and that he was not fit to compete in the election.
Aside from that, Biden has always been an opportunistic liar. He will go to any extreme, tell any lie to attain his goals.
I can’t wait till the remaining liberal Democrats find out how much
Biden’s ‘Buy Back America’ is going to cost them in taxes. That it’s funded is another such a bold faced lie I’m surprised anyone of sound mind believes it. With the inflation, cost of utilities and taxes and fuel for our gas tanks we are going to go through miserable times made more miserable when we realize Biden has promised a billion or more to illegals before he grants them citizenship.
A bouquet to you seniors who voted for Joe. Biden wrote and worked to pass the first bill that taxed Social Security. A year or two later he returned to the well and voted to raise the taxes on social Security.
Spend more time researching your candidates and there won’t be so many surprises.
Can’t be trusted! Dems way of getting seats back! Got to start at the top and remove all the corrupt Dems!
What ya expect a politician to do…when he starts to 👀ppl who use to vote for him going… red, white & not blue❓
Recycled news and recycled by you! Please, there is plenty of news going on, find one of your journalists to write something a little closer to being new.
