Crazy Video WATCH: Colorado 'Trump Supporter' Burns GOP Voter Registration Card
A man who says he has been a lifelong Republican is now saying, “Goodbye, GOP.”
The former Republican voter, reportedly identified as Larry Wayne Lindsey, says he lined up for an hour at this weekend’s state convention in Colorado Springs to vote for Donald Trump.
But after his precinct captain found out who he was supporting, Lindsey says he was “removed and replaced.”
“My vote nullified, because I voted for Trump,” he said in a series of videos posted to YouTube. “They think they are gonna get away with this, they are sadly mistaken.”
“I’m voting for Trump, and to hell with the Republican Party,” he said, setting the sheet of paper on fire.
“I will not be forced to vote for somebody that I don’t want to. I quit. I quit the party.”
Lindsey said that “for the time being at least, I’ll be independent.”
“I’ve been a Republican all my life. But I will never be a Republican again,” he vowed.
Donald Trump on Fox and Friends this morning had called out the GOP’s nominating process, saying that after Ted Cruz swept up Colorado’s 34 delegates he now sees that “the system is rigged.”
The GOP front-runner also responded to the voter on Twitter later today:
This is happening all over our country—great people being disenfranchised by
politicians. Repub party is in trouble! https://t.co/wNXRqVl9Uu

“Republican Party, take note,” said Lindsey. “I think you’re gonna see a whole lot more of these.”
