GOP are Trumpists
The corruption and inhumanity of this president have become disgustingly more evident over recent weeks. This is no surprise since it reflects everything he exhibited for years in business and throughout his campaign. Though Trump’s ignorance, incompetence and self-serving exceed any other president, this represents no more nor less than his campaign promised.
What is disturbing, however, is that the Republican Party has abdicated all pretense of being the party of sanity, fiscal responsibility, family values, or Lincoln. Caving before each vile and disreputable act committed by this administration, the Republican Party is now solidly the Trumpist Party. Republicanism is dead; replaced by Trumpism.
Southern Oregon Republicans running for the Oregon Legislature and board of commissioners must know their banner stands for Trumpist destruction of our environment, economy, and health. They must know they support kidnapping children from their parents’ arms. Is there no humanity or integrity left?
