Basically the American people, at least the thinking people, say that something doesn’t feel right. No kidding! The problem is that, seeing the demographic changes that favor Democrats, the GOP m in conjunction with Fox News and right wing media, has decided that it can’t compete in a democratic system. It therefore has turned against the institutions of democracy, moving ahead by any means possible.

America in recent years has morphed into a plutocracy, with the GOP paid to protect the interests of the 1%. With Trump demonstrating that he has the talent to cause large numbers of working stiffs to vote against their own intesrests, the GOP has learned to fall in love with the Donald.
