The Republicans are stuck in the crisis

The burden of proof in the Ukraine affair is overwhelming, the defendant may soon become a President, nothing is sacred. And yet Donald Trump is covered by a Republican party, the power to be agents of his lackey and fulfillment. Hardly Republican senators are likely to condemn the President, if it actually comes to an Impeachment process in the Senate.

The bigwigs of the party, from the Congress to the Republican national Committee in the party apparatus of the States, excuse me, trump's behavior and draw, if necessary, in the fight for him. The complicity of the party is not prevented, as yet, only that the President was held responsible. You leveled him, did the way to new miss. Without question, the Republican party follows a President who will ruin you, perhaps.

Why? What has become of a party that was committed to a small state, but now trillion deficits in the budget of the Federal government accepts? Free trade is a thing of the past, no one protests when the President of the trade wars ignited. Or when he dispossessed the citizens, whose Land he needs to build his wall along the border with Mexico.

Incessantly when white Americans a minority are closer.

prudence and decency, the once much-vaunted character traits of conservative America, are nothing more value. See trump's foreign Minister, Mike Pompeo, watching in silence as his diplomats by the President, insulted, or even on the meanest way from the office to be tilted.

The crisis of the Republican party is also a crisis of modern American conservatism has moved far from its roots. Hardly, Barry Goldwater, William Buckley and Ronald Reagan, the founder of this modern conservatism and its party are likely to recognize again. This crisis reflects the precarious Situation the Republicans: Perpetually, the time is getting closer to the white Americans, including Evangelical Christians, a minority will form.

The Republican party has become the political vehicle of the associated Fears, a last bulwark against a future in which the traditional white hegemony over the state and its institutions no longer maintained can be. To prevent the political implications of demographic change, or at least to postpone, the politics Donald trump and the Republican party.

Only once since 1988 has achieved a Republican candidate in a presidential election, a majority of the votes.

immigrants from Norway, the President would not, as he famously remarked, those from Central America or Africa, but he does not want to. To crop whether barriers to the exercise of the right to vote or the absurd boundaries of electoral districts, which are only meant for the political influence of minorities: All means are legal in order to secure the Power of a white clientele, the selects since 1968, in presidential elections the majority of the Republican.

Also, the electoral College helps: Only once since 1988, namely in 2004, has achieved a Republican candidate in a presidential election, a majority of the votes. In 2000, as of 2016, won this candidate only thanks to the electoral College. Prevent but not for the demographic change. If the Republican party does not succeed, therefore, non-white voters segments and attract more women, it is on the ash heap of history land.

Especially since you cannot get rid of the spirits that you called, even now, As the President's son Donald Trump junior on the penultimate weekend at a Californian University, at the invitation of conservative students, he was not shouted down by right-wing radicals, where the conservatism of the student organizers went far enough. On the right edge of the party it simmers, young radicals who profess to be open to white supremacy and anti-Semitism, imagine yourself as Donald trump's true heirs.

a Lot of the time, the Republican party is to renew itself and find a modern conservatism. The coming Impeachment against the President would provide an opportunity, probably, but the Senate Republicans will perceive you.
