The Republican Party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan is no more, and it doesn’t even know it.
It has been taken over by a corrupt, arrogant, and power-hungry cadre who abandoned the ideals of the party. It has become the party of ‘no’ and not the party of solutions.
They remain so detached from reality that they still do not recognize why increasingly large numbers of voters have turned out this election cycle to support a non-politician for president – Donald Trump.
Even now, when Trump is the last man standing in a field that began with 17 candidates, most of whom were establishment proxies, The Party – as represented by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan – has the audacity to withhold support from the people’s choice.
Speaker Ryan inferred that Trump “inherited something very special, that’s very special to a lot of us” in his winning the nomination. He sounded like Obama saying, “You didn’t build that” to American business owners.
Trump quickly clarified that there was no ‘inheritance’ involved. It was a flat out scorching of the Republican guard, a resounding repudiation by millions of votes from the American people. Tweeted Trump:
And then he blasted Speaker Ryan with the best line of all:
“I am not ready to support Speaker Ryan’s agenda. Perhaps in the future we can work together and come to an agreement about what is best for the American people. They have been treated so badly for so long that it is about time for politicians to put them first!” – Donald J. Trump
The PEOPLE FIRST! What a novel concept!
Even some establishment-types are opening their eyes and wising up to the truth and abandoning the Republican Party because of its failings, as discussed here.
For the majority of the old guard who keep their head in the sand, the world passes them by, led by Donald Trump, who understands how to lead Americans: By putting Americans first!
Republican Party – RIP
