I have an ASPIRATIONAL view of the Republican Party. What our country needs now is a viable two-party system in which the Republican party is a full participant; not a hollow party hobbled by a leader that pollutes the airwaves with name calling and hate speech.
I believe our party has been hijacked by forces and ideas that aren’t part of our original tradition. We used to believe in fiscal responsibility and sustainability. We used to believe in environmental conservation. We once championed civil rights.
The Republican Party of Donald Trump is not the Republican Party that once made me proud. We’ve abandoned core tenants of our philosophy and substituted them with racist dog whistles to get votes.
I understand that there will be a certain segment of Republicans who dislike this message. In the spirit of free speech, I encourage them to speak out as they see fit.
I am speaking for the thousands of Americans who’ve sent me emails of support. Our country needs a commander-in-chief that leads our country down a more sustainable pathway, not the daily yo-yo barrage of conflicting policy initiatives.
