FLUSHED WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE WITH A ENVIRONMENTALLY UNFRIENDLY TOILET!!!

I seriously hope Amash and his family are eating garbage under a bridge when Trump is re-elected in Nov 2020.

Rep. Justin Amash announces he is leaving GOP; Trump calls it 'great news'

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash announced Thursday that he is leaving the Republican Party, saying he is disenchanted and “frightened” by party politics -- a move that was quickly described as "great news" by President Trump.

JUSTIN AMASH GONE FROM HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS AFTER SAYING TRUMP'S CONDUCT WAS 'IMPEACHABLE'


Amash, a libertarian and a critic of President Trump, made the announcement in an op-ed for The Washington Post, in which he said he had once run as a Republican due to the GOP’s belief in limited government, economic freedom and individual liberty.

"In recent years, though, I’ve become disenchanted with party politics and frightened by what I see from it,” he said in the op-ed. “The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions.”

Trump soon responded, calling Amash's departure "great news" for the GOP and suggesting he quit because he was likely to lose to a primary challenge for his re-election bid.

He was no true Republican anyway:

Amash supports decreasing U.S. military spending

Amash supported a repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, saying that the "real threat" to traditional marriage and religious liberty is government, not gay couples.

Amash opposed President Donald Trump's 2017 executive order to ban citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States.

Maybe Amash should run for president in 2024. We are long overdue in seriously considering independent and third party candidates.

It has been a long time since any of them were worth seriously considering.

more people are independent than either R or D

R's are only ~25% of the population (& shrinking because of the piece of garbage)

down with both R's and D's... but mostly R's... especially any actively propping up Trump

Well, that sucks. He, alongside Massie/Jordan and just a couple others, was one of the only true small-government Rs in Congress. The GOP will still be around when Trump is gone.

Even Bernie realized the best way to advance his message is through the party, cancer and all.

Trump's biggest accomplishment is destroying the Republican party

The GOP died when the parasite Tea Party invaded it and drained it of life. Now the Trump party is gnawing on the rotting carcass of what was once the GOP.

The GOP died when it ignored the message of the Tea Party that sought to restore the party to its roots, and astroturfed it, elevating only its most retarded figureheads like Palin and Bachmann

Election soon. I get the loyalty to the office, not the man.

But lest you forget.

The man in the office is due to change.

So peddle back on your stupidity soon?

tw,

Sorry, *9 million illegals.

jergul,

If you're saying that in five years' time I should be abandoning my loyalty to Donald Trump in favor of President Ivanka...fair enough.

I think you are a good example of why staring into the abyss is a bad idea.

It changes you.

jergul,

Surely I don't need to point out the absurdity of that accusation being uttered by someone whose entire worldview has been shaped by a combination of being raised in a culture of post-modern nihilism, spending years working in the crippling isolation of the the Arctic Ocean, and fearing for much of his youth that everything he held dear might one day be destroyed by a Soviet invasion.

If my embrace of contemporary counter-culture really disturbs you that much, I apologize.
