I consider myself conservative. I don’t believe that abortive services should be allowed, I served 13 years with the Sheriff’s Department, volunteer with my church, kids’ school, for wounded veterans.
I cannot support the Republican Party with Donald Trump at its head, and urge others to forcefully and proudly stand up to his rhetoric. This weekend I heard nothing from Republicans regarding his comments urging Democratic women to “go home.” Just imagine the feigned indignation if roles were reversed.
Every single day, every single time that he says or does something ridiculous, and Republican leadership does not repudiate it, it shows to me they have traded their values for power.
My son has Type 1 diabetes. Republicans say they will keep safe protections for pre-existing conditions, yet last week supported removing all protection and still no health plan put forward. Traded our values for power.
We stand for family values and fiscal responsibility. Yet Trump repeatedly cheated in his marriage, paid off women. Lost in courts about racial discrimination. Our leader, the self-described “tariff man” with multiple, multiple bankruptcies. Traded our values for power.
We stand for strength. Yet we are led by a draft dodger. Traded our values for power.
Until Republicans can find the voice to speak the truth, and stand up to the idiot in chief, I will not support the G.O.P., nor any conservative causes. I will not volunteer, nor donate. I will not even put a sign in my yard.
