Reader comment on item: Why I Just Quit the Republican Party

Submitted by Anne Julienne (Australia), Jul 21, 2016 at 17:18

I'm a long way away from the centres of power in this world. I live in an outer suburb of Sydney in a country with little power or influence in the world. But, with the aid of the internet, I sat there in the Cleveland convention hall and listened to Ted Cruz yesterday. He, at least, is no "cowering weakling". And yet, his leadership is fragile and the hope for 2020 that could build around him is also fragile.

The #nevertrump forces must unite and thump Trump. If that means - even - voting for Clinton, then so be it. It may be preferable that she have a clear mandate rather than a grudging one.

In any case, I am heartened to read of your own stand, Daniel, and I wish you and your conservative friends all the best in the troubled times ahead. I'll be watching and hoping and praying.
