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.

What they are doing is sedition and treason...and all deserve to be hung according to our Constitution. Franklin need not loose faith in the Tea PArty...lots of us have turned Independent too..or will after the primaries.....as far as I am concerned the GOP no longer exists....they are all commie/Marxist/progressive/demoncraps...
Rev. Graham was a bit slow to catch on; I resigned from the GOP back in 2006, after being a registered republican for almost 50 years. I'm guessing I was a republican because my mom and dad were republicans, way back when. Anyway, I am a registered INDEPENDENT and shall remain so. And don't worry about the possibility I'll vote for a dimwit; the only democrat I ever voted for was JFK. There has never been a decent one since and I doubt there ever will be.
This is a huge event that could give the election to the murdering traitor Killary. What does he believe about the TP that would cause him to distance himself from them? Everyone I have ever met who is involved in the TP are good people who believe in God's word.
This could draw millions of votes away from Trump, assuming he survives the attacks on him by the traitors in the gop who hate him more than they hate Killary. Out of the frying pan...
Naahhhhh! Trump is Trump - (and/or Cruz is Cruz) and the majority of voters would vote for them no matter what party they were affiliated with. The 'R' means absolutely zippo. This 2016 election is an absolute no-brainer. Even the dumbest of voters know the distinction. It's either save the America or plunge it deeper into socialism and poverty.
I have had it with the GOP and must concur with Mr. Graham. Many of the so called Republicans in Congress need to put the D- in front of their names and need to be fired. We have been stabbed in the back.
The headline should be America buys 20 pounds of BS in a ten pound bag. Embarrassed? We are living in a war zone and only the one percent that bleed for us know it. Soon you will have to take your shoes off to go shopping. Trump is America's last hope. Not only must we elect Trump we must elicit a promise from all candidates for any office that they will back up Trump to the sword hilt. We can not elect a leader and not give him his army. The rino rats and the democrats have joined forces to give our weakened nation the SOS. After eight years of lies and communist tactics of division. We finally have a man to make America greater than it ever has been. He will stop the terrorist invasion, build the great southern wall, cut taxes, create jobs and pay the bills. Not to forget we will rebuild the mightiest military the world has ever seen and will never challenge.
I feel the same way about the GOP. They are on a witch hunt for Trump and I don't understand why, except that the GOP is now been bought out by the Establishment.
