(Of the 16 GOP lawmakers listed, I believe only 4 have stated that they're leaving because of Trump. Just sayin'. 4 out of 16 isn't that much of a "notable number" imo)
And then we might have inexperienced people or those from the party we oppose holding that office. We have term limits... it's limited to whether or not the people want that elected official back in office.

They have made it clear that Trump's brand of politics is disgusting. Flake calls it "his (Trump's) coarse tenor of politics". Flake is a fiscal conservative--the old guard who treasures his brand of conservativism AND that of John McCain, who obviously detests everything Trump stands for. In fact, MANY elected Republicans have expressed discomfort, or even disgust, with Trumpís style.
Gone are the days when our lawmakers referred to each other in a respectful, gentlemanly way. Flake is a Mormon who is well-respected in my state. He sees Trump as irresponsible and unreasonable--as does Corker. Flake has said, "The path I would have to take is a path I cannot in good conscience take."

Thank God there are still SOME men--some lawmakers who stand firm on their convictions. They are a rare breed.
Iím sorry but standing firm in your convictions is staying and fighting for what you believe is right not cut and running, that is cowardly.
Thanks from TNVolunteer73
