Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump

Submitted by Todd Robinson (United States), Jul 24, 2016 at 12:14

There are so many reasons to hope Trump never becomes President. You listed a handful but bottom line is that the GOP created an environment for him to flourish and never stopped him when they had the chance. I am a centerist but appreciate many conservative values and have voted GOP many times before. Never again. Trump, with the support of the GOP, has basically destroyed a party I once respected. I only hope that he loses and the GOP can begin to rebuild to offer better solutions in the future. America needs healthy political debate and a strong GOP is needed to offer alternatives to liberal policies.

However, this year I will be voting straight party Democrat to send a message to the GOP: they need to be crushed in November and then rebuild from the ashes of a massive defeat or else another Trump will come along and repeat this insanity.
