GOP: Suicide by Trump
It was sad, and it all came so quickly and unexpectantly. The Republican party was the victim of a hostile take-over. Donald Trump’s populist message during the 2016 Presidential campaign seem to stick to the bottom feeders in Congress. The more reputable Republican members of the House and Senate went along with departures from the GOP norms just because they wanted to win. But what did the win mean?
Now that the smoke has cleared, and most thinking Republicans know that Trump is doing everything he promised, they have no time to reassess their views. They know they lost the house because of Trump and some know it’s only a matter of time that Trump will help diminish their majority in the Senate. The Republican party is in a death spiral without addressing the crucial question, “What does the party stand for?”
Let’s look at some facts. According to the Budget Office of the United States of America, as of October 28, 2018, debt held by the public was $15.8 trillion and intragovernmental holdings were $5.8 trillion, for a total or “National Debt” of $21.6 trillion. And the Treasury, under Steven, Mnuchin announced that for the first time in history, the national debt surpassed $21 trillion this week. This means that under Trump the debt might increase $2.1 trillion. That’s sure different than what President Trump predicted, but in matters of debt and bankruptcy, he hasn’t been a “stable genius” in those areas in the past.
We know that Republicans traditionally believed in “limited government” but with our Great Orange Leader, we seem to have given the President more power, diminished the responsibility of the Congress and tarnished the reputation of the FBI, Secret Service and the Supreme Court. Republicans are not the group to stand up to Trump, in fact, they are afraid of him. Under this “Republican” the party platform is totally ignored.
In Congress, Republicans are 99.3% Christian and .7% Jewish. They have done nothing to court Hispanic voters. They support prayer in public schools and tend to be the party that most lobbyists recruit after they leave office. They have left their credo of free market economics and have enabled Trump to use tariffs and sanctions as retribution rather than smart economic governance. They may be celebrating the move to add more conservatives to the Supreme Court, but in key decisions they might find that good judges don’t bend the law, they follow it.
While there are those who say this is all good for the Republican party, they obviously are counting on Trump’s celebrity and rabid fans to push them into office. But as the demographics of America change, the numbers don’t look good. White, well-educated suburban women are turning away from the divisive rhetoric. The way Trump has treated women, isn’t sitting well with WOMEN.
Another area of concern for Republicans is Trump’s constant demonizing minorities, immigrants and people who he doesn’t like. His hate and vitriol have made it impossible for any support from African-Americans, Hispanics and Muslim Americans. He has created an US and THEM mentality. His roaring crowds at political rallies give the President a false sense of security. We know he doesn’t know global or domestic economics, but continually does things to force a referendum on his radical ideas rather cautiously steer the trade ship through the critical waters. The stock market bounces around like his disparate comments. One day it’s up, the next day, it’s all wrong. Trump has such an unbeautiful mind.
I know, as a patriotic America, I should care that the GOP hold its ground and assert its will, but it’s too late. They helped elect an unemphatic political whore and there is nothing they can do about it. Their leaders won’t let them. They are just riding out this storm, hoping that something positive comes. If your party has an anchor around its ankle, you can only tread water so long. Some have already quit and would rather walk away from Trump and his family of goons. Some are faced with committing political suicide. May they rest in peace.
And now this just in from CNN, President Donald Trump said that he will not take strong action against Saudi Arabia or its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the death and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Donald J. Trump is a man without morals and he has blood on his hands.
Today we also learned that daughter Ivanka claims she didn’t know there was a problem using her personal email for government business. Obviously, she hasn’t been listening to her father for the last three years. She is either just as ignorant as her father, or the Trump family thinks they are above the law. LOCK THEM ALL UP.
