Cliven Bundy has officially left the Republican Party herd
Washington Post ^ | 5/27/14 | Philip Bump

Posted on 05/27/2014 12:47:22 PM PDT by ghost of stonewall jackson

Rancher Cliven Bundy, who you may remember from American politics circa April 2014, has officially left the Republican Party. The news is unlikely to cause too many sleepless nights at Nevada GOP headquarters.

Bundy and his wife signed new voter registration forms at an event held by the Independent American Party, to which the Bundys now belong. The event, the AP reports, was "held to honor Bundy for what organizers called 'his courage in standing up for state sovereignty.' " The IAP promoted the Bundys' cause earlier this month, calling on Nevada residents to file "CRIME REPORTS" against the Bureau of Land Management agents involved in the seizure of Bundy's cattle.

I’m in Nevada. Not only do we have to fight Reid, but the good old boy Republicans on the take. Good for Bundy.

This needs to be a news story? Wow this is a slow news day. At least it isn’t about anything Kardashian.

He’s not the first to leave nor will he be the last.

The GOP until lately had been the party that made more sense. It was pushing for egalitarianism about race long before egalitarianism about race was cool.

Democrats in contrast were slick good ole boys pulling sly moves.

Now there’s been an estrangement from God in general. This does not bode well, unless corrected. In the middle of the grocery store, even though blocking a display that some other shopper is trying to get at, we can pick up that cellphone and yack with an uncle on the other coast, but will we talk with such urgency to an omnipresent Father in Heaven or His Son?

Good for them, can’t blame them at all. I’m not exactly sure why anyone would want to be in the GOP.

American Independent or Independent American? It seems they are two different organizations.

Maybe Mr. Bundy will run for Dingy Harry’s seat. :-)

When Sarah loses the (R) I’m next.

Only thing keeping me (R) is to vote in the primaries. But if the stupid party pushes a stupid candidate, I’m voting for the beast.

Crash and burn this thing asap!

ROFLMTO....my thoughts exactly, I am tired of seeing the “K s” wedding photos.

What took so long, I’ve been an Independent since 2007.

as officially left the Republican Party.

So? I've had it with the spineless statists in the Republican Party, too. They want a republic, all right-- a tyrannical fascist republic, not one that comports with the Constitution.

But the WaPo is trying to divide and conquer here. They have gone all Alinsky. Cut off Bundy's support. Freeze it, polarize it, and all that.
