    Opinion | What Trump Doesn’t Get About Conservatism

    On this 4th Of July...an article from a conservative.
    Saying how Trump doesn't get it...the principles of being a conservative. (and I've got a good side of me too that favors these ideas)

    The current GOP has also deviated from them.
    Catering to the current Prez due to his populism and to simply stay in power.
    Then again, they've sold their souls to do this already...to gain, to leverage, to stain, to keep on top and push in their agenda with no compromise.

    I'd rather see them going back to some honor and respect...doing what's needed to leverage good ideas and values.
    Not just posturing and selling out.

    The Dems too have lost their way, their passion, to even balance out some of their own agenda with some of the better concepts and ideas from the conservative side.
    (they did this with Obamacare...which was thought up in a consservative think-tank)

    We need to get back to being better.
    and not just catering to many's raw anger and simplistic ideas.

    Both progressive and conservative values are needed.

    GOP leader resigns after Trump-Putin summit: “A matter of conscie...

    After Putin Meeting, Trump Voters Mostly Dig In. But Cracks Are Showing.

    hmm...we actually see some integrity from the GOP
    There statement in the 1st article from The Weekly Standard and other conservative media AGAINST what Trump did.

    However, is it enough??
    Trump will NEVER give up...it's his nature to do it until he's dragged away kicking and screaming.

    Right now...even as before, the GOP as a whole will likely end up being complacent...and allowing it all to continue.
    Statements are worth less than toilet paper to wipe your ass with...because it's all virtual...momentary, noise.

    The key is ACTION

    The problem is, there are too many that are cowardly to do something.
    AND too many that have too much to lose and too much to gain...supporting and allying themselves with Trump's agenda...the power, the influence and more
    Much less the Xenophobic and Racist dark side of the party. (a reality...many are in denial of...remember, they didn't act AND they supported Trump when he explained away NAZIS...or The Wall, or, or, or...)

    Perhaps...perhaps this a start.
    But I doubt it.
    As I said before...it's going to get worse and it's going to get stranger.

    I can only hope it will change before there is tragic damage.

    Because it has already damaged our standing in the world.
    Everything we worked for internationally...over decades. We bitch-slapped our allies. We allow evil nations to gain.

    All for the ego of one man.
    We've been here before...

    And ya wondered how they allowed it back then...well, you're seeing it...NOW.
    Question is...whether they'll stop it before masses are killed.
    We've already separated children...hurt children

    Will the GOP wrap the flag around that???

    I can only hope they find their soul.
    Their old-school soul with integrity and honor.
    And act
    Act with the values they acclaim to.

    Opinion | Desperately Seeking Principled Republicans

    Yes, please
    I voted for GOP often in the past.
    But the past some years...they've abandoned their ethics.

    And even many of the conservatives mentioned in the article agree.
    They need to regain their integrity.

    Anything for the win...is not a win.
