Franklin Graham has resigned from the Republican Party and become an independent, declaring that "I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or tea party to do what is best for America.
"Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble," Graham, 63, wrote on Facebook.
Graham called on "Christians, even pastors, across the country to pray about running for office where they can have an impact.
"We need mayors, country commissioners, city council members, school board members who will uphold biblical values."
The budget deal was widely slammed by Republicans and conservatives last week, who charged congressional leaders — including new House Speaker Paul Ryan — with "betrayal" for putting through a spending plan that financed many of President Barack Obama's programs.

Say goodbye to the GOP.
I think a lot of us will be doing it.
TEA PARTY Time!
This will become a New Trend. M
Bye Bye GOP!
The only difference between the Democrat-Communist Party and the Republican-Socialist Party is THIS. The Dems want to spend $1.00 and the GOP wants to hold the line at $0.99. I am done with the GOP Lifers and RINOS. Only Tea Party candidates for me.
I did too. Why support a party that does not have your back like uuuhhhh benghazi
Well I understand resigning from the two socialist parties, but what in the world is wrong with the TEA party? Glad Rev. Graham has stood up but the last one leaves me wondering.
I think he's afraid that, what the Media has said about us mite be a half truth and not a total lie.
We need some our big guns to reach out and talk with him, about Our vision for America.
Next time we have a gathering,WE need to invite him to Open it with a mighty prayer. Something in the order of the one Gen. Patton requested when he moved his Army to the Bulge. Amen.
Millions agree this GOP does not represent any conservative. The independent vote will rise a lot.
What a disgrace for our GOP, but one has to admit he has some valid points there in reasons for deep disappointment.
What is Graham's beef with the Tea Party? I have heard more biblical talk from Tea Party members than anywhere else. I do not understand his thinking.
