I left the Republican Party after I was forced to support and campaign for John McCain. Although even though I believe McCain to be a scumbag and a traitor I did my duty that year and tried to help the scumbag win.
I am a registered Independent even though I still shill for and aid the Republicans for the most part. You see there are only two parties in the US. Democrat and Republican. You can’t win major office and just about every minor office unless you are a member of one or the other.
The Democrat party once a blue collar working class Union party was taken over quite awhile ago by the communist radicals that flourished and were nurtured on the American University Campuses in the 60s. It was a slow and steady take over of the Party. In the last 8yrs the Conservatives and Constitutionals have been working on taking over the Republican Party.
Unlike the Democrat Party the leadership of the Republican party attacked and minimized any candidate that won office through this not so quit revolt in their ranks. Removed them from any committee positions they held and even supported the opposition when one of these candidates was in an election.
The result was the Primary we just went through. The establishment candidates were utterly destroyed. The presumptive heir a Bush was pushed out almost immediately. The establishment was left with only Two other Candidates besides Trump Rubio and Cruz. Both of these candidates were a problem, both were Tea Party, and therefore members of what they viewed as the cancer within their own group. Rubio they could co-opt he proved that with the gang of 8 and immigration, except he lost his home State. Oh well. That left the only insider that could win as Cruz.
The quit story behind the scenes is the Tea Party and their affiliates have taken over a majority of elected positions from Dog Catcher to complete control of over 30 State Governments. The most logical candidate to follow this trend was Cruz.
Except Mitch McConnell the RNC and the Republican mouthpieces in the Press hate Cruz they hate the Tea Party. They have done everything they could to destroy the Senator and the movement. Now refusing to give their backing to Cruz they allowed Donald Trump to run unopposed thinking that he wasn’t serious and the establishment would gain back control….
Well it hasn’t worked out that way. And the Tantrums are blossoming into full bloom. Take for example George Will he has come right out and publicly declared that not only is he taking his ball and going home, he is throwing his support to Hillary. He’d rather see a Felon and a Marxist in office than a candidate he helped create.
‘This Is Not My Party’: George Will Goes from GOP to Unaffiliated
WASHINGTON – Conservative columnist George Will told PJM he has officially left the Republican Party and urged conservatives not to support presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even if it leads to a Democratic victory in the 2016 presidential election.
Will, who writes for the Washington Post, acknowledged it is a “little too late” for the Republican Party to find a replacement for Trump but had a message for Republican voters.
“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” Will said during an interview after his speech at a Federalist Society luncheon.
Will said he changed his voter registration this month from Republican to “unaffiliated” in the state of Maryland.
“This is not my party,” Will said during his speech at the event. He mentioned House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) endorsement of Trump as one of the factors that led him to leave the party.
Will, a Fox News contributor, said a “President Trump” with “no opposition” from a Republican-led Congress would be worse than a Hillary Clinton presidency with a Republican-led Congress.
Will did not say if he would vote for the Libertarian Party nominee, former Gov. Gary Johnson (R-N.M.), telling the crowd he does not know whether or not the Libertarian ticket is going to help or hurt Clinton.
