I first had to check if this is possible, and it is. If a Republican in Congress doesn’t want to tow the Trump line or be any part of the resulting mess that is that party, then why not just switch to an Independent? The current belief is that any Republican that isn’t Trumpist will get primaried and replaced with a nutter. I’m not saying switching to Independent will cleverly avoid that. They can still get replaced by a nutter, but why not go out fighting based on your own ideals and merits instead of just being near faceless party upheaval cannon fodder?
