Why the big tizzy about Donald Trump? He’s the perfect embodiment of today’s Republican Party, except he is louder and more demonstrative.
Today’s conservative party is racist, anti-environment, anti-poor, anti-women, anti-social programs and against legislation that protects people from the worst excesses of big business. It is, however, pro guns and fully protective of the nation’s wealthiest.
American democracy? What we currently have is an oligarchy where the richest rule, and anything that stands in the way of profit must be legislated out of existence. All of the Republican candidates are this way, not just Donald Trump. Should Republicans gain control of the presidency and the Supreme Court, they will have it all. America will be transformed in a way too horrendous to contemplate.
