All the news talk-shows are wondering why Republican law makers don’t distance themselves from Trump.   The Republican pundits avoid answering this question.

Trump supporters reflect the actual base of the Republican Party.  Their base is made up of low information, religious bigots, ignorant fundamentalist, southern racist, ammosexuals and the poorly educated.

For years the Republican Party placated these groups with hollow lip service to insure their vote, while actually enacting legislation to benefit the rich and powerful.      

This was the perfect combination: the rich furnished financial backing allowing the politicians to influence the easily manipulated in order to stay in office. 

The primary goal of every politician is to remain in office- what’s best for the Nation is the inside joke.  Being a Senator or Congressman insures good pay, excellent benefits, a secure retirement, and is as close to Royalty as you can achieve in the United States. 

It all started coming apart for the Republican Party when a black man ran for President, and the billionaire supporters and Republican strategist decided the sure way to soundly defeat the Democratic Party at every level was to fire up, organize and unleash their base against the black Presidential candidate.    They hired organizers to recruit the angry, and buses to transport them to Democratic events – they named them The Tea Party and gave them fifteen minutes of fame in front of TV cameras.   Unknowingly they had unlocked the doors in the asylum and it was only a matter of time before the inmates would take over.  

Now the ol’boy Republicans find themselves in a dilemma.   Donald Trump is the personification of their base and he has established himself as their leader.    To publicly distance themselves from Trump could anger the Tea-Trump voters and very easily cost themselves their reelection. 

And remember, remaining in office is the primary goal of every politician.

It seems like a common sense conclusion to me.

  1. The question is will those down ticket hold their office when Trump is at the top of the ticket??

  2. I think he may quit but no matter what it's kinda like the Neocon bastards and Irak in that if you have an oz of brains you know it's not gonna turn out good.
