Cautionary tale, commentary, Presidential Politics, writing


I don’t know about you, but I for one am simply shocked I tell you – shocked, that a party made up of a coalition of the hypocritical religious right, the NRA and their gun nuts, The Tea Party House Republicans, angry white guys (who haven’t a clue as to who they should really be angry with), xenophobes, racists, homophobes, (see the religious right, gun nuts, The Tea Party House Republicans, angry white guys etc.) immigrant bashers, Muslim haters, conspiracy theorists about anything Clinton or Democratic.

A party, in addition, made up of paranoid neo-cons, non-union and non-college educated voters, and all fed a constant stream of hyperbolic lies by conservative talk radio and Fox TV held together and fueled by the enormous amounts of money provided by the Republican ultra wealthy one percent through their super pacs.

They are now one in their almost unanimous backing of Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican candidate for President of these United States, a twice divorced admitted womanizer (and proud of it), a serial welcher of debts, a man who drives companies to bankruptcy, a professed supporter of antiunion right-to-work laws, a man accused of anti-union intimidation and hiring undocumented workers, a man who has shown no inclination to invest and build only in America – in fact, a significant percentage of his company’s hotels and major real estate properties are located abroad, a man who has yet to tell us how he will do anything he says he’ll do, and who will not, as is the custom for people running for President, show us his tax returns. Oh – and, he is a proven liar of epic proportion.

This is the man the Religious Right sees fit to become our President. The man the House Tea Party Republicans see fit to become our President. The man who The Republican Party would sacrifice this country to on the altar of power retained and control of the wealthy, by the wealthy and for the wealthy so help us God. This travesty is The Republican Party writ large. If you ever had any doubts about the motives and cynicism of The Republican Party, of their willingness to destroy this country – and its standing in the world community – in their insane desire to retain control at any and all cost, doubt no more.

This grotesque spectacle is The Republican Party finally and unashamedly revealed for all to see. A party that would eat their young without a second’s thought if it meant holding onto power.

And, if you cannot see it then you are as stupid as anyone who want to see this thin skinned hypocritical macho con man phony in The White House – with his finger on the nuclear button and his loud mouth empty braggadocio dealing with other world leaders.
