Republican Party, where did you go?

Republican Party, what happened to you? You used to be the great party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Dwight Eisenhower. You were conservative, but in a more moderate and reasoned way. You believed in working with others and not vilifying them. You believed that while government couldn’t solve all problems, we needed adequate and necessary government to proactively do things such as create the interstate highway system, protect the environment, make it easier to exercise the right to vote, and much more. You once would have been disgusted by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Now you are the party of Donald Trump who is a nasty, radical person whose vile behavior and talk you claim as “refreshing,” “honest,” and “tough.” No it is not. It is cowardly, disgraceful, and un-Christian. We need two viable and decent political parties, but today’s Republican Party no longer qualifies. It is no longer true to its great traditions. We can only hope that the royal beating you will take in this election will cause you to return to your senses. However, I’m not holding my breath.

1. The ones that knew better stood by silently instead of wrestling their Party from the nutjobs.

5. Eisenhower would be a Democrat today.

Ike would have walked on garbage like this Rethug party.

7. The Republican Party's "great" traditions ended with Teddy Roosevelt

Dwight D. Eisenhower was a good American who briefly interrupted the downward slide.
