‘Libertarian’ Justin Amash Abandons the Republican Party, Surrenders to the Political Left

He has been working with the Democrats for months to undermine President Donald Trump.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has finally made it official. He is leaving the Republican Party, and made the announcement on Independence Day in an op/ed in the globalist Washington Post.

“Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party,” Amash wrote. “No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. I’m asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it.”

Amash is framing his abandonment of his political party and his betrayal of his constituents as a rejection of partisan politics.

“The Republican Party, I believed, stood for limited government, economic freedom and individual liberty — principles that had made the American Dream possible for my family,” he wrote.

“In recent years, though, I’ve become disenchanted with party politics and frightened by what I see from it. The two-party system has evolved into an existential threat to American principles and institutions,” Amash added.

But a close examination of Amash’s voting record shows that he has in all actuality flipped to the Democrats. His support for the impeachment of Trump is to the left of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, he voted to affirm illegals in the voting booth, he supported Democratic overreach to censure Trump administration officials based on the proposed census citizenship question, he voted with the Democrats to subpoena Kellyanne Conway over fake ‘Hatch Act’ violations, and he voted against denying green cards to known violent gang members.

His opposition to Trump has won him the monetary support of ‘Never Trump’ neocon Bill Kristol’s Democrat-funded front group as well as gushing coverage from the fake news media.

“My parents, both immigrants, were Republicans. I supported Republican candidates throughout my early adult life and then successfully ran for office as a Republican,” Amash said of his Palestinian heritage.

But now, Amash is no longer a Republican. He will be rallying voters against Trump in the key battleground state of Michigan, and liberals are thrilled that Amash’s self-serving subterfuge may put them back in the White House come 2020.
