While I have greatly disagreed with Republican policies over the years, at least the party always stood for something. They actually had principles — Eisenhower, Reagan, even the ultra-corrupt Nixon stood for fiscal responsibility, deficit hawks, free trade, oppose tariffs, family values, states’ rights, party of Lincoln who defeated the KKKONfederate flag, STANDING FIRM AGAINST FASCISM and RUSSIAN/SOVIET AGGRESSION.
Now the Cult of Comrade TRUMPski has managed to get the Republican party to not merely abandon but enthusiastically reverse every single one of its most sacred cows.
Deficit hawks? Fiscal responsibility? Today’s TrumpubliCON party blows holes in the deficit, opposes free trade and supports tariffs.
Family values? Now the TrumpubliCONs support payoffs to porn stars and nude models and serial adultery, kidnapping babies and toddlers and putting them in cages (well, if they have brown skin).
Standing firm against Fascism, KKKONfederacy, Russian / Soviet aggression? Today’s TrumpubliCONs wave Nazi and KKKONfederate flags and hold up a former Soviet KGB top official above American intelligence, while surrendering key advantages to Russians and accept Russian complicity in meddling in the American electoral process.
But under Comrade TRUMPski, they have completely abandoned every one of their former principles, to embrace a vulgar, crude admitted woman-groper who pays hush money to porn stars and nude models to keep quiet about affairs he had while his wife was recovering from childbirth.
Gives new meaning to the term “RED states.”
