If You Are Still a Republican ...

… you are part of the evil that has gripped our nation under Trump.

No doubt there were those among you who were against Trump’s election, who disagreed with his policies, who were appalled by his actions and statements, but believed that your party would stay true to American values and eventually return to its core principles.

But after witnessing what has happened over the past two years, surely you now know that whatever principles and values you once held sacred are being systemically destroyed. Surely you recognize that by continuing to support your party, you are not only condoning Trump’s evil – you are complicit in it.

By continuing to be a member of the GOP, you are responsible for putting children in cages, you are responsible for the racism that has been unleashed, you are responsible for the violence encouraged by your “pResident”, you are responsible for every single thing that he is doing – along with every lie told, every act of defying the law, every crime he is guilty of, and every bit of corruption he has so blatantly demonstrated.

I am a life-long Democrat. But if the Democrats ever put someone like Donald Trump in the White House, I would leave the party without hesitation. I would refuse to be associated with a party willing to support a man so completely devoid of morals and common decency, and so obviously determined to undermine everything we as Americans once stood for.

Those of you who once hoped that your elected party members would rein-in Trump’s basic dishonesty, his self-serving agenda, and his downright criminal behaviour must now be aware that that’s never going to happen. Instead, they have defended him, protected him, even perjured themselves in order to cover for him.

The time for pretending that you are blameless has passed. If you are still a Republican, you are as guilty as those in your party who are standing by and watching evil flourish.

1. If you're still a Republican there's something seriously wrong with you -

some heinous combination of stupid and evil.

2. A few are just greedy

But I guess putting greed ahead of decency and democracy would fall under evil.

3. We Democrats Faced This Though On A Much Smaller Scale

And for a different set of circumstances.

LBJ maddingly got us mired in the quagmire of Vietnam and even though he had an outstanding record on domestic policy his Vietnam policy wiped out all of the good will.

I supported Eugene McCarthy in New Hampshire, even though I didn't connect with him emotionally. But that worked and LBJ dropped out of the race. I was really excited when Bobby Kennedy entered the race. But we know how tragic 1968 turned out to be, including not only the murder of RFK but also the election of Richard Nixon.


But this helps show the different mind set between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats worked within the system for a better outcome. Republicans become clan-like and see no evil. But it is out there baby.

5. Their orange mobster couldn't care less about them.

 

It's all about him, him, and him.

He's not afraid of breaking any more law than he already did all his life since he's pretty sure he would get pardoned from Federal felonies as soon as he would be either defeated or right after he would resign, so what's one (or many more) felony would change anything? As long as he expects to profit from it while he can?

State indictments?? He sure knows there would be a truckload but he's got a plan to escape state jails: Play 'dumb' insanity in front of cameras ("oranges" & "father born in Germany" & insane tweets, et al) and lawyers (he won't pay) will plea mental disorder to keep him tweeting on his golden toilet every morning.

His mob family? Like.He.Cares.
