There’s some buzz going around that a Republican State Congressman from Iowa recently left the Party and is resigning his seat in the Iowa Congress. That’s true, and the left has picked it up and gleefully run with it.
As I have a Yahoo email address, I get their newsfeed automatically. Yahoo is decidedly leftist, which is why I’ve retained it and read it regularly, as I do CNN, the HuffPo, ThinkProgress, VOX and others. It’s good to stay abreast of what the enemies of liberty are thinking, both abroad and within our own borders.
The July 18th Yahoo article is entitled, “Republican politician quits party over Trump’s ‘erratic and misguided leadership’ following Putin summit.” I thought it interesting, so I read on.
“Ken Rizer, a retired Air Force Pilot, took to Facebook to announce his decision after the US leader met with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki and suggested that he did not believe that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential election.”
“As for me, I can no longer call myself a Republican given the erratic and misguided leadership of the president. I will always be a (Ronald) Reagan conservative, but find no place for such views in Trump’s world. Until the Republican Party recovers its values, my party affiliation will be ‘No party,’” wrote Rizer.
