Steve Schmitt, MaCain’s campaign manager, announced a few days ago that he was changing his registration to Democrat. David Brooks has written thoughtful columns warning how Trump is changing America in terrible ways and why he needs to be reined in. George Will is urging people to vote Democratic this November.
I understand that there are many people out there who will support Trump no matter what. They are invested in him, and will back him no matter how outrageous or evil his policies are. I also know there are thoughtful conservative Republicans who are appalled at this administration and what it is doing. I urge those Republicans to change their registration, to speak out, and to save our country.
I know from personal experience how difficult it is to turn one’s back on his or her political party. I also know that sometimes it is the right thing to do. Remember that once Trump is rejected, you can always change back to the party with which you feel comfortable.
