Flake says he has no plans to leave the Republican Party and become a Democrat or an independent, despite his disagreements with the president. Im a proud Republican always have been always will be, Flake said. Why would I do that? Im for economic freedom and individual responsibility. The Republican party is more closely aligned to those principles. And so thats what this book is an affirmation of those principles and a call to return to civility and decency and decorum.
