There is very little reason to be redundant, writing what someone else has already nailed, so I am sharing a prophetic article by my favorite talk host Steve Deace.
A previously moderate-to-liberal politician calls himself a Republican, but spent most of his time in politics actually cozying up to or supporting Democrats instead. Up until prepping to run for higher office that is. Then, once the race begins, he instantly transforms himself into a tough talking campaign conservative. Finally, should he be fortunate enough to get elected, all that conservative talk suddenly goes out the window as he betrays the very people that got him where he’s at. This has been the plight of the conservative in the Republican Party for far too long.
