A year ago I joined the Democratic Party, though many of my positions were once considered Republican. This column explains why.

Democrats are more in touch with reality, reason, and facts. We Democrats respect science. This includes the science that shows that human-caused global warming is a serious problem. It also includes the science that shows that wearing masks, social distancing, and vaccination are appropriate responses to a deadly pandemic.
