The Republican Party Agenda In 2017: Destroy Obama Legacy And New Deal And Great Society, And Ignore Trump Abuse Of Power

The Republican Party of 2017 is hellbent on destroying entirely the Barack Obama legacy, and all political, social, and economic reforms of the New Deal of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Great Society of Lyndon B. Johnson, along with other reforms even by Republican Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush, and Democrats Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

They are willing to cope with the insanity of Donald Trump, willing to ignore the abuse of power by the 45th President, and in the process, undermine civil liberties, civil rights, labor rights, women’s rights, consumer rights, protection of the environment, and the rights and protection of the disabled, elderly, and poor among our population.

In the past, the Republican Party was the conservative mainstream in American politics, but now the most mean spirited, nasty, uncaring elements have held sway over the party apparatus, and no longer care what public opinion polls indicate, that there is strong, vehement opposition to going back to the America of the Gilded Age and the 1920s, and in so doing, destroy all progress, and put America further behind more advanced nations in Europe, as well as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand worldwide.

    Rather than essentially repeat much of what I wrote with my responses to “Could It Be A Battle Between Two Upper Septuagenarians For The Democratic Presidential Nomination In 2020?” @ , I came across something really insightful. This is from the podcast of “The Attitude with Arnie Arnesen,” the 1992 Democratic gubernatorial nominee from New Hampshire, and her discussion with “The Atlantic’s Claire Foran. (Focus on the first half of the podcast.)

    Just like a child has to touch a stove to learn that it’s hot, we have to be forced to put up with a Bush or a Trump every now and then so that voters can learn that Republicans suck.
