GOP los­ing ad­her­ents

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

The Repub­li­can Party and I are done. My friends and I are hag­gling over whether to un-reg­is­ter our­selves and to­tally opt out of the sys­tem or just sit on the side­lines un­til hell freezes over and the Repub­li­can Party sup­ports its elected pres­i­dent. Ab­sent a change of heart to sup­port the pres­i­dent as the leader of the Party, I am re­solved.

The GOP will never see a penny from me again. How­ever, I will con­tinue to fi­nan­cially sup­port Pres­i­dent Trump. No Repub­li­can can­di­date will re­ceive my vote again. I re­gret my votes for Rob Port­man and Brad Wen­strup. They are traitors to those of us who voted for them, ex­pect­ing them to sup­port their duly elected pres­i­dent. I will sit out as many elec­tions as it takes to re­place them. I no longer care about “lesser of two evils.”

I will not par­tic­i­pate in this sham sys­tem un­til there are term limits and Congress sub­jects it­self to the laws of the land by re­peal­ing the pen­sion sys­tem and the other perks they have set up for them­selves. We need a re­turn to a cit­i­zen leg­is­la­ture.

I say this to the Repub­li­can Party elites: You will not re­tain con­trol of the House or the Se­nate un­less there is a change to sup­port the pres­i­dent’s ini­tia­tives. I un­der­stand there is al­ways room to dis­agree and com­pro­mise for bet­ter poli­cies, but un­less there is will­ing­ness to follow the lead of the pres­i­dent and stop the back-stab­bing, the days of the GOP con­trol­ling the House and Se­nate are wind­ing down.
