    Default I just donated to the PAC that supports the Reps who voted to convict Trump

    Americans Keeping Country First is the only Super PAC dedicated solely to defending the members of Congress who took votes of conscience to impeach or convict President Trump after rioters stormed the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021.

    Thank God there are still a few Republicans who have not been sucked into the Trump Cult.

    A group of Republicans has launched a new super PAC that aims to provide support for GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach or convict former President Trump.

    Founders, including allies to Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), an outspoken critic of the former president, started the PAC, which is called Americans Keeping Country First, The Washington Post reported on Sunday.

    The super PAC describes itself as the only one “dedicated solely to defending the members of Congress who took votes of conscience to impeach or convict President Trump after rioters stormed the Capitol complex on January 6th, 2021.”

    Americans Keeping Country First will serve as the sister nonprofit to Kinzinger’s own PAC, which he launched earlier this month to combat “Trumpism” and will aim to “build a grass roots army,” the Post reported, citing documents.

    Mario Castillo, one of the group’s advisers, told the Post in a statement that the new PAC “has a clearly defined mission to provide air cover for the members of Congress who took votes of conscience to impeach or convict President Trump.”

    Kinzinger, who was one of 10 House Republicans that voted to impeach Trump last month, started the Country First PAC to fundraise against a “huge list” of members, such as Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who have backed the former president.

    The new PAC is anticipated to support the 10 Republican House members and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who will face an election in 2022, in the primaries and general elections. Trump has said he intends to support primary challenges to Republicans who crossed him and Kinzinger is already slated to face a pro-Trump primary challenger, who announced her campaign earlier this month.

    Why why why would you throw your money away like that?

    None of these people had any problem with Trump back in 2010 when he was alleging Obama was born in Kenya.

    I wonder if this isn't some trial balloon to see if more ppl are interested in politicians with backbones and ethics, or in reinstalling the would-be tangerine tyrant again.

    If I may ask, why?

    The Lincoln Project folks were straight grifters. These folks, from what I can tell so far, are actual Republicans trying to move the party more towards traditional Republicanism. So why would a Democrat want to help elect more Republicans?

    Donald Trump has shit in the white House or on it- FOR THE VERY LAST TIME!

    Trump- and everyone in his family will never get within 1,000 yards of the White House ever again.

    But you losers who think Donald Trump, or his son, will be on the Republican ticket in 2024 keep on fantasizing!

    I think it is hilarious watching you idiots think that Donald or his son will get the nomination!

    BECAUSE EITHER WAY IS A SURE WIN FOR THE DEMOCRATS.

    Let's all Hope that Donald Trump or his son is on that ballot in 2024!

    Because I'm not a Democrat. Never have been. I was a registered Republican for 40 years until I changed to Independent in 2008 after Bush Jr fucked up the economy with his American Dream Downpayment Act in 2002. I have never been a registered Democrat, even though I occasionally vote for them.

    I have no problem voting for a traditional Republican although they're becoming few and far between. I admire Kinzinger and Cheney for voting for America rather than sucking Trump's dick like so many others have.

    If this group is about getting Republicans elected including support for those who aren't 100% MAGA I'm all for it. I appreciate your donation (though I can imagine other liberals may not, haha).

    Why should I? If you don't believe me, I could give a Trump.
