The Republican Party’s greatest flaw is that it does not have an expansive, inclusive platform based on the idea that we need to improve things for all people.
Their platform is formed around the idea that the system should be systemically rigged to keep the Wealthy, Whites, and Wall Street in power.
It’s a party built on racism and the idea that poor of all colors are undeserving of equal opportunities.
Today’s Republican Party is built in part on fear of people who are not white. There’s no other way to say it. The party is committed to reducing voting rights for African-Americans. It has a history of alienating African-Americans that long predates Trump, stretching through Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and Mitt Romney.
