GOProud Founder No Longer a Republican

GOProud co-founder Jimmy LaSalvia announces that he announced on Tuesday that he is leaving the Republican party.  

In a recent blog post Jimmy LaSalvia said  that he changed his voter registration to “no party”, because the Republican party had “lost its way”.

LaSalvia said that he is now “an independent conservative”, which he said: “sounds much better than ‘gay Republican'”.

I have to call shenanigans on LaSalvia’s claims that he is a conservative.  Here is why:

LaSalvia supported the Libertarian In Name Only straw candidate Robert Sarvis for Governor instead of Cuccinnelli

LaSalvia’s co-founder at GOProud Chris Barron voted for Terry McAuliffe for Governor instead of Cuccinnelli

LaSalvia was “offended” because Ted Cruz prayed in public and thought Cuccinelli was comparable to David Duke.

LaSalvia’s organization appointed to Gabriel “I pledge to support Barack Obama’s agenda” Gomez to its Board of Directors

I think he left the GOP because his guy Chris Christie is becoming a less viable presidential candidate in 2016 due to his many scandals.

Ronald Reagan said it best when he said “A political party is not a fraternal order. A party is something where people are bound together by a shared philosophy.”

RINOs like LaSalvia, are free to go. RINOs like Gabriel Gomez for whatever reason are content to remain as registered Republicans.  We don’t have to purge RINOs, they’ve done a great job purging themselves from the party.
