Summary
"A behind the scenes look at how the GOP is out of touch with Americans today and why more voters should consider "no party." No Hope is for disaffected conservatives and moderates as well as liberals who are fed up with the political party system. Forty-three percent of Americans now identify as Independents. Many of them are right of center and used to be Republicans. In No Hope, former Republican Jimmy LaSalvia, cofounder of GOProud, which was one of the highest-profile gay political organizations, will share what he did to ignite change in the Republican Party. But ultimately LaSalvia determined that there was no hope conservatives would evolve on important cultural issues, and for that reason, the Party is an untenable coalition that includes the tolerance of bigotry. No Hope chronicles Jimmy's evolution from team-player Republican to free-thinking Independent, and includes entertaining stories and anecdotes about some of the biggest names in politics today including Donald Trump, Ann Coulter, Roger Ailes, Reince Preibus, Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and others. No Hope also exposes some of the ugliest anti-gay operators in Washington, DC. In early 2014, Jimmy announced his resignation from the Republican Party and changed his voter registration to join the new majority of Independent voters, receiving significant media attention. Now, in No Hope, he tells all and, in the most entertaining outing in political book history, breaks apart the current two party system to energize democracy"--
