Repub­li­cans are step­ping all over our Constituti­on

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE -

For those won­der­ing why the Repub­li­can Party is un­will­ing to crit­i­cize and hold accountabl­e Trump for his mis­deeds, one must un­der­stand their core be­liefs. They can be best summed up by this state­ment from Mike Pence’s ac­cep­tance speech at the 2016 Repub­li­can Con­ven­tion. He said, “I’m a Chris­tian, a con­ser­va­tive and a Repub­li­can, in that order.”

See what’s miss­ing? He never said he was an Amer­i­can. One can say that it’s un­der­stood. How­ever, if I were stand­ing be­fore a crowd of peo­ple that con­stantly ex­claim their love of country, I cer­tainly would have said I was an Amer­i­can first and not left it as an af­ter­thought.

Let’s look at what has tran­spired since 2017. The Repub­li­can Party has pushed an agenda erod­ing our re­pub­lic just to stay in power.

The cur­rent Ukraine scan­dal is a per­fect ex­am­ple. Repub­li­cans step­ping all over our Constituti­on just to stay in power.
