Country Before Party

Too many Republicans in Washington are already coming to terms with Donald Trump being their team captain. Unfortunately for them, parties are not teams, but collections of people fighting for ideas and access to power to advance those ideas.

Donald Trump’s ideas are anathema to the existing Republican Party platform and no current Republican should feel any obligation to maintain loyalty to a party that nominates a man who calls Planned Parenthood “wonderful” and believes in a socialist, government run healthcare scheme, among other leftwing ideas.
