I'm not sure what a Republican is anymore. They used to be people who believed in conservative values like honesty, decency and fair play. Now they seem to have sold out to Trump’s distorted ‘win at all costs’ mantra. In Wisconsin and Michigan they are changing the rules to undermine the result of a democratic election. I guess that means they don’t believe in democracy any longer. I saw one Republican official with twisted features loudly proclaim that he wasn’t about to allow any ‘liberal agenda’ there. What voters want doesn’t seem to matter much to him. Some narrow Republican victories elsewhere also seem suspect, while other elections have been the result of blatant gerrymandering and voter repression. And now, in South Carolina, a major voter fraud investigation is underway. Republicans used to believe in ethics and a fair contest of ideas. But I doubt an old-school Republican like George HW Bush would recognise much in the mean-spirited cabal now claiming the label.
Still early days. I still believe in people to do whats right.....eventually. American politics is a huge slow machine and nothing happens quickly. It will happen however.
