No Hope Why I Left the GOP (and You Should Too) By Jimmy LaSalvia
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 there was no hope that conservatives would evolve on important cultural issues—revealing the party as 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 Priebus, 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.

“Jimmy’s book is This Town with a dash of The Emancipation of Mimi. You may not agree with his politics but you will devour the gossipy tales and the insider’s look at navigating the personalities and egos of Washington, DC.” —Lisa De Pasquale, former director of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and author of Finding Mr. Righteous

“Anyone who has a stake in the future of American politics, which includes all of us, should take note of Jimmy’s journey. He fought the good fight within the GOP, but finally realized, as did I, that it is a party today that frankly doesn’t have room for new ideas and real liberty. No Hope isn’t just a good read—it’s a modern parable for politicians and policy makers alike.” —Gary Johnson, former Republican governor of New Mexico and former Libertarian Party presidential candidate
