Re: John Kasich: ‘I think members of the Republican Party are in a coma right now’

Some are waking up . . .

 

A former Texas judge announced on FB that she was leaving the R-party over Trump's racist ideology, and says that she will be voting D for the first time in 20 years.

 

“It has taken me years to say this publicly, but here I go. President Trump is the worst president in the history of this country….his ideology is racism. To me, nothing positive about him could absolve him of his rotten core.”

“The current Republican Party supports Trump so I cannot support that party in Texas or nationally.”

I'm glad to see that Libertarian Bill Weld has decided to challenge Trump in the R-primaries. He is also trying to get the R-party out of their coma. There have been rumors that Congressman Justin Amash (now an Independent) might enter the presidential race as an Independent or Libertarian. Weld said on tv news that he would welcome Amash to run. He said that votes for Amash would come directly out of Trump's pocket and would not be a threat to D's. Weld said he had D's tell him that they would cross over and vote for him in the primaries even though they would support the D in the general election. That was okay with him, too.

Yes, @CriticalThinking , I bet MANY would have.

I've said this before, if John Kasich was the Republican nominee in 2016, going against Hillary, I would have voted for him.


Regarding the 2016 elections the question that I have always have had ,is Why did the Republicans nominated Trump Not why Trump won over Hillary.


That's pretty simple.  

 

Trump articulated a message that was easy for voters to connect with.  

 

IMO, he is good at reading what the American Citizens are thinking and the direction we desire for our nation going forward.  

 

America has been a center right nation for a far back as I can remember.

That's an interesting point and probably true, but it misses the bigger and far more imporant point. Trump's base loves it when he's nasty, makes racist comments, attacks liberals and insults people of color every day of the week. What does that say about them? 

 

Donald Trump is a reflection of his base. I don't think decent people want to lower themselves to that level. We have to appeal to the decency of the majority of Americans.


I was, more or less, speaking tongue-in-cheek, but yes, my very thought exactly.   The reason Trump makes such outrageous statements is because it energizes his base, because he is voicing exactly what they think and believe.   He's basically telling them it's OK to be xenophobic because America should be white...uh...first.  And maybe I was just trying to be polite (for lack of a better word), but I don't think that says much about those who continue to support him and his behavior and morals.


Trump knows he has to keep the racist and ignorant element within his base stirred up or he has no chance of winning an election. It's a tight wire walk to keep that part of his base stirred up without alienating the majority of Americans. Let's hope he fails.

very true Cee Tee as usual. Good news is I saw another poll, I know, this far out, but still, Trump trails Biden, Warren and Sanders, so he is in trouble, already.
