Here is my latest letter to the editor:
An indication of the depth of the disarray the Republican Party is in can be seen in the fact that Donald Trump, of all people, is leading in the polls in the GOP Primary. Donald Trump, who supposedly speaks his mind and says what he thinks. Trump is a showman and is more likely orchestrating what he says to fit his current audience, and it has nothing to do with what he actually thinks. In fact, he has raised flip-flopping to an art form, and has seriously shortened the time between flip and flop.
The more serious problem is what Trump is actually saying, and claiming to believe. It is not only just plain wrong, but extreme, dangerous, and hurtful. Forget about being politically correct, how about simply being correct for a change Donald? If Trump really believes what he is saying, he is seriously delusional, but then so is most of the core of the Conservative base.
Conservatives will vote Republican by rote and without question, and that’s the problem. Even a clown like Trump could indeed win the GOP nomination. Conservatives should question their life-long beliefs, even if that sounds like a Liberal thing to do. More importantly, question your faith in the GOP, which today has but a single agenda – taking as much money as possible out of your pockets and mine, and then giving it to the already extremely wealthy top 1%. And NO, that does NOTHING good for jobs or the economy.
