My proudest political moment: When I was a registered Republican

Barbara Anderson and The Angelic One shared some comments about the 1980 GOP Presidential Primary battle, which prompted my walk down memory lane where I shared the fact this I became a card carrying member of the Republican Party during this period.  

Even more surprising, my act of becoming a Republican was (and still is) one of the most uplifting experiences of my political life.  Something I look fondly on as an example of how “ordinary” voters can make a difference by the simple act of voting.

As I asked in my comment I linked to above, can anyone give the historical context of why I still feel this way?
