Comments on: Why Republicans hate the Republican Party so much http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/07/why-republicans-hate-the-republican-party-so-much/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Baywolfe http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2016/03/07/why-republicans-hate-the-republican-party-so-much/#comment-1129239 Sat, 19 Mar 2016 22:18:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=46840#comment-1129239 Most people are waking up to the fact that they are neither for the left or the right, but are actually Moderates. We want to be safe, we want to be able to earn a decent living, and we want to be left the hell alone by other people and our government.

It is their form of progress.

Democratic socialism is simply not possible – you end up with a country run by a huge government bureaucracy.

They knew full well that unlike a republic which is based on the “rule of law” is quite different from a “democracy” which is based on the ever changing whim of the majority of men and women — or what is more commonly known as a “tyranny of the majority.”

However, I submit that today, our good old U.S.A. can no longer even qualify as a democracy. Rather, our nation has become nothing short of a full-blown “oligarchy” under the control of elite special interests who have become accustomed to simply buying elections.

Rubio will drop out after losing in Florida, he’ll be out of money. Kasich should drop out after losing in Ohio, but I think he will stick around in hopes of being the nominee at a brokered convention.

A year ago, three Midwest Republican governors were mentioned as possible nominees- Scott Walker, Rick Snyder, and John Kasich. Walker and Snyder have absolutely nothing going for them. Snyder is now facing recall petitions and possible criminal charge in Michigan.

I don’t know what Kasich has going for him, other than he happens to be governor of a large Midwest state that is not doing particulary well. He has no personality whatsoever.

Republicans won’t seat a President for 30 more years at the earliest. After what Bush and Cheney did to this country…. that party of bigots and foreign policy failures…. is done.

Hatred of all that is not white. Hatred of all that does not conform to their view of unregulated government. Hatred of all taxes. The GOP did this to serve their mega-wealthy client’s greed. (They need the common man’s votes.)
But Trump is the direct result of this policy. He has tapped into and exploited this hatred. The GOP never envisioned that the monster they created would turn on them. “You shall reap what you sow”

Trump is offering his proven managerial talents to bust up the cozy little partnership of the DNC and RNC that have become two sides of the same corrupt coin. Trump doesn’t need any more self-made wealth. He’s made his pile and is now following a higher calling. His goal now is to satisfy his immense (but healthy) ego by leaving a legacy of having saved America in its second most desperate hour of need, like George Washington, also a successful businessman. We are lucky to have a capable champion appear and offer to serve at this most desperate hour of need.

The obvious answer to your question is, no.
