I have been a Republican for many years. Recently I came to the decision to no longer align myself with the party.

The party has given us candidates with Matt Gaetz and Donald Trump. Gaetz cares more about creating chaos in the House because of his ethics problem than the good of the country. Trump's policies as president were good for the country but his disgraceful behavior and personality caused chaos and division in the country.

Now Governor DeSantis joins Gaetz and Trump in pushing attack ads about Nikki Haley that are disgusting as well as dishonest. All three of these people care more about their personal political future than the country.

If this is the best the Republican party can offer us — the country is in real trouble.
