What I find most interesting and ironic in this whole election cycle is, the Republican Party leadership has sold their souls on this one, so that they can try and maintain "control" of their base. The GOP has been losing grip on party unity and message since before John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. The rise of the Tea Party was a direct result of Barack Obama ascending to the highest office in the land and the perception that "they" "lost our country". So they elected people who spoke that same rhetoric of fear and hate and what it did was set the country back. Despite what the reality of what government does or is supposed to do, all of that has been misconstrued by the media and the Right. Do you honestly think a Donald Trump could have risen to the level of "party nominee" when Ronald Reagan or even Richard Nixon were party darlings? But now, sheer racism is the not so subtle calling card of the Trump coalition of deplorables. Trump has rung a waiting bell within the hearts of the suddenly disenfranchised White folk who feel that no matter what their station in life, it is their right to be doing better, especially over anyone of color. Trump kicked off his campaign saying all the right things to those folks. Now all the fears of the Party leadership have bubbled up and those folks feel they have a seat at the table so to speak. But what we should fear is if Trump does win; that seat at the table will dictate policies and reframe what has been considered progress for the last 20 years.
If you have not voted yet, vote tomorrow. Too many people fought and gave their lives for you to "feel" you don't need to.
