Letter: There are no more true Republicans

Published: 8/2/2020 12:01:19 AM

I am a proud Democrat. I expect to find proud Republicans on the other side, but something happened to this party under Donald Trump.

Trump demonizes a whole country, Mexico, and no one in the Republican Party here in Andover writes a letter condemning this.

He insults John McCain. Nothing, in the local press, from veterans.

He separates children from their parents and puts them in cages. No “What would Jesus have done?”

Trump embraces white supremacists calling for a race war. Where is the outrage?

Draining the swamp means enriching himself and his family. The “Don’t tread on me” people, where are they when we have paramilitary in the streets of our cities?

Trump has said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with it. How about 150,000 dead?

Oh, it’s not his fault? From denying the seriousness of COVID-19, saying that it would go away – drink Lysol and you’ll be alright; leaving WHO in the middle of a pandemic; eliminating the pandemic response office in the White House; playing hot and cold with Dr Anthony Fauci; saying “I am not responsible” (his own words): He is guilty.

I could go on, but my point is made. The Republican Party no longer exists as a rational conservative party. Call it what it is: a royalist party. Yes, an anti-Constitution party.

And that’s all a true Republican needs to know. Unfortunately, you can no longer find one.
