Here Is The Rub For Conservative Republicans In National Election
The Republican Party is shattered, broke, splintered, and without a foundational definition. Donald Trump has done what Democrats never could.
From the New York Times
Under determined questioning, Mr. Trump was finally forced to fill in some of the gaping blanks in his policy vision. The result was a broad rejection of core Republican priorities. He assailed free-trade agreements, pledged not to cut government benefits for retirees and defended taking a neutral stance in negotiations with Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
In a remark that could have come from a Ron Paul-style isolationist or a McGovern-style liberal, he answered a question about how to pay for Social Security by casting the country’s military presence overseas as a gigantic waste of resources.
