Have you ever heard Senator Ben Sasse? Exactly. 99% of America hasn’t either: He warns He May Leave Republican Party Over Donald Trump

I think you would have to put Ben Sasse on a milk cartons to get people to find him. 
Other than that, if he would leave the GOP like he warns, his absence wouldn’t make a ripple in the stream of life.  

NY Times reports Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican from Nebraska, continued to warn on Tuesday of the dire consequences his party faces if it nominates Donald J. Trump and vowed never to vote for him for president.

A vocal opponent of Mr. Trump for months, the freshman senator said that he would find a new political party if the New York businessman becomes the standard-bearer for Republicans.

“I want to celebrate what’s great about America in the Republican Party, but if the Republican Party becomes the party of David Duke, Donald Trump, I’m out,” Mr. Sasse said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program on Tuesday.

Mr. Sasse’s public resistance to Mr. Trump could give other Republicans in Congress cover to distance themselves from him if he wins the nomination. He said that a leadership vacuum in the party left it open to a hostile takeover.

“Let’s first recognize that the Republican Party is just a tool, as all political parties are,” Mr. Sasse said, lamenting that Mr. Trump has expressed admiration for dictators in Russia, China and North Korea. “And I signed up for the party of Abraham Lincoln, not the party of David Duke, Donald Trump.”

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Ben! 


  1. If they wouldn't vote for Trump and would also leave the Republican party forever, it would be worth the loss of a few votes. They are a small minority that is a major problem.

  2. If Trump takes the nomination, I'm afraid Ben Sasse won't be alone when he leaves. His absence by itself would not be noticed, but a large number of people are having real problems with the idea of pulling the lever for Trump, no matter how odious the other side is.

    1. People are saying that now because we're in the heat of the race. But, when it's down to Hillary and Trump all that will fade away and the folks will fall in line.

  3. No Sam, people will not fall in line

    After Obama and Hillary had a very contentious fight in 08, did Hillary supporters sulk and stay home? No they didn't. But, GOPers aren't as mature as Democrats?

  5. Don't let the door hit your a** on the way out, Sasse.
