On the same day that seven Republican Party officials quit in Maine, an Iowa county co-chair quit because Republicans have, “declared war on science and common sense.”

Polk County (Iowa) GOP co-chair Chad Brown wrote about his disappointment with the party in his resignation letter, “Having spoken with a pastor and having prayed about this for hours, I came to the conclusion that this is my only recourse. I’m disappointed with the Republican Party at the National level. I’m disappointed with the Republican Party at the Statewide level. I’m disappointed with the Republican Party at the Countywide level. I find it increasingly difficult to defend issues and statements made by Party leaders and officials from all three levels.”

This appears to be a good thing. Sounds very much like he was in the closets for the dems.

The only thing confusing was the republican party at the national level would be expected to agree with all his rants, e.g. immigration, climate change etc. etc.

So refreshing to hear from a whiner who should have remained in the Democratic [sic] party all along.

I agree, from what he says the demoncrat party appears to be a much better fit for him. I believe the biggest problem with the Republican Party is that there are too many like him in leadership positions. That is why I say I am American first and Conservative second. I don’t have much use for the Republican Party right mow.

Brown said in a phone interview that he became disgusted by a party he believes is being run by the Christian right and the National Rifle Association.

I hope more of these kind of yobs follow suit. They ain’t conservative and they sure ain’t Reagan Republicans. Good riddance to him and his kind.

So he’s for illegals, raping the economy in the name of “climate change”, and gun control. See you Chad, don’t let the door hit you.
