In a recent column, Washington Post opinion writer George Will warns, if Donald Trump wins the presidential nomination prepare for the end of the Republican Party as we know it. For many of us that transformation had already begun long before Mr. Trump took the stage. Let’s be clear, Donald Trump’s political success is the product of a Republican establishment that has abandoned the values that got them elected. They have no one to blame but themselves.
With majorities in both houses they have failed to control spending while fully funding Obamacare, Planned Parenthood and the Syrian Refugee Program. There have been no meaningful steps taken to secure our border and they have failed to stop a lawless president who has done great damage to our country.
Democrats have allowed their party to be hijacked by the corrupt left who have driven wedges between the American people while creating a culture of victimization. The Republican establishment is doing much the same within their own party. They have lost the trust of many from their conservative base and they can no longer take my vote for granted.
