Don’t waste en­ergy on GOP’s Big Tent

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

I am not in fa­vor of bring­ing the RNC here in 2020, es­pe­cially in the Repub­li­can Party’s cur­rent con­fig­u­ra­tion.

I, for one, must be won over to a po­lit­i­cal party’s over­all plat­form and can­not in good faith cherry-pick from a bas­ket of poli­cies I fa­vor and those I find re­pug­nant, es­pe­cially when the lat­ter cre­ate di­vi­sions based on race, gen­der, eth­nic­ity and eco­nomic sta­tus.

The Repub­li­can party’s “Big Tent” has shrunk con­sid­er­ably since the elec­tion of the cur­rent pres­i­dent, and I would not pre­fer to ex­pend any more en­ergy try­ing to stitch to­gether its tat­tered can­vas.
