By not rejecting Donald Trump, the Republican Party has renounced its claim to morality, decency, and self-respect. If the GOP dies this year, it won’t be Trump who killed it, but the cowardly, self-interested apparatchiks who played along, from Reince Priebus to Rush Limbaugh. But even if Democrats have become known for lower standards regarding morality and legality, the same goes for them. Found in Hillary’s hometown paper:
It’s obvious the American political system is breaking down. It’s been crumbling for some time now, and the establishment elite know it and they’re properly frightened. Donald Trump, the vulgarian at their gates, is a symptom, not a cause. Hillary Clinton and husband Bill are both cause and effect.
FBI director James Comey’s announcement about the renewed Clinton email investigation is the bombshell in the presidential campaign. That he announced this so close to Election Day should tell every thinking person that what the FBI is looking at is extremely serious.
We won’t know the full details until after the election, but we do know that Hillary has already been proven unfit for the presidency, and that worse revelations will surely follow, probably including illegal specifics regarding the influence peddling that made her so rich.
The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now. It would be the most responsible thing to do, if the nation were more important to them than power. And the American news media — fairly or not firmly identified in the public mind as Mrs. Clinton’s political action committee — should begin demanding it.
But if Republicans wouldn’t try to stop Trump even after he explicitly asserted that he would issue illegal orders to murder innocent people, what are the odds that Democrats will stop Hillary? Character is in short supply on both sides.
Both parties have succumbed to corruption. They have allowed their vile nominees to suck them down a vortex into hell.
