There is a limit to the amount of jackassery that I can endorse. So I will gladly take Mike Huckabee’s advice to leave the GOP.
I can “turn off” my sense of smell at will by controlling my soft palate, just as easily as I can close my eyes to avoid seeing. (This came in really handy when changing my kids’ diapers!) Unfortunately, my “superpower” doesn’t work when it comes to politicians. So here I am, breathing in the full stench of the 2016 presidential election.
I try not to get too worked up about the presidential election. I don’t believe any single person can make America great again. In fact, I think we are in for very rough times ahead, both economically and culturally, regardless of who is elected as our next president.
But the past couple of weeks have been especially gut-wrenching. What do you do when it appears that your options are going to be this bad? After much thought, I have decided that I cannot, in good conscience, support Donald Trump, or a party that submits to him. As a result, I feel the need to declare the causes which impel me to separate from the Republican Party. Let the Trump facts be submitted to a candid world.
