Do Not Call Up That Which Ye Cannot Put Down
This IS the Republican party. It is the party of Reagan, of Nixon, of Bush. It is a party of hatred and greed. That is all it is about any more, and I, for one, thank Donald Trump for presenting it to us out in the open.
I am almost sympathetic with certain Republicans who now seem to believe that Trump is a Democratic plant. They're wrong, of course. There never was a Republican candidate more representative of the base that they have worked so hard to create, and now they are stuck with that base, and their champion.
