Reader comment on item: Why I Just Quit the Republican Party

Submitted by alberto (Italy), Jul 22, 2016 at 13:23

You give 5 reasons for leaving the GOP, #1 and #5 refer to the personality of the man which you do not like. Ok you do not like Trump as a man, how in the world is this a reason enough to discard a politician? Do you prefer a nice man unsuitable to the role? #2 As a businessman Trump is going to negotiate everything to get anything: come on, what is more important, to be inflexible on an issue or to bring home the best possible deal overall?Politics is compromise. #3 This reason ... the same way you think Trump is. Basically you leave the GOP because they accepted Trump nomination as a presidential candidate ... #4 This is astonishing, it is exactly the other way around: new ideas is what made Trump the GOP presidential candidate, despite his style. Stopping illegal immigration, fair trade deals with the rest of the world, stopping immigration from muslim countries, discussing Nato role, these are new ideas and incredibly you have not said a word about any of these ideas.
