Op-Ed: The allure of the Republican Party is baffling. Voters will regret falling for it
Donald Trump has been running around like a crazy person, flushing women down his commode, and now, despite a majority of independent voters supporting him, has finally had to call Hillary Clinton a “crooked,” “dishonest,” and “crooked Hillary” on Twitter. The only question is how many people will watch in shock and horror before realizing that the Democrats are being played for fools.
The GOP has gone from a political party with no coherent ideology, to a party that can’t even hold itself together.
With Trump at the top of the ticket for the first time in decades, the Republican Party is running a two-person campaign against the Democrats. One is Trump, who is doing everything he can to prove that he’s “not racist” despite the fact that he’s saying things to the media like “If she won’t go after the Wall, I will.” The other one is Paul Ryan, who looks like he’s got the world’s weirdest haircut, and he is on the way to becoming the first member of his party to be elected to public office.
“I will keep my focus on the economy and on jobs, on building a strong middle class so that everybody in this country has a chance at upward mobility for their families. And we will do all we can to make sure we provide the opportunities for our folks to succeed,” Ryan said when asked about this, too. “That would be my focus.”
I hope we get to see the real Paul Ryan. The guy who was born and raised in America. The guy who can hold his liquor, and isn’t the slightest bit interested in social justice, or the right to not be offended.
