Really to the point of arguing issues as opposed to emotions, and further reinforcing why I genuinely believe the trump end is far worse, how do you feel that the gop convention concluded THEY HAVE NO PLATFORM.
"L'Etat, c'est moi."
Think about this very carefully. Forget about attachments to specific issues for a moment. A political party in the United States has formally passed on declaring a policy platform during a presidential election.
That party issued a formal statement that the candidate is the platform. No ideas. No debate. No plan. One man is the platform.
If your first instinct is to say "but the other side.....," STOP. This is not an appeal for a candidate.
This is a moment to ask what happens when a political party or a country cease to choose a person to lead a platform of ideas and ideals and instead allow themselves to be fully consumed by an individual.
This is far from my biggest gripe with our current president and his litany of failures and offenses, but it realllllly hit home a point that we were discussing here
