As someone who has historically self-identified as Republican, I share the Drumpf supporters’ frustration with the way the Republican party as a whole has performed over the past 15 years and I strongly disagree with much of the Democratic party’s platform and its leaders. What I don’t understand is how they can possibly believe that Drumpf is the solution. I agree with them that we need a candidate who is willing to acknowledge the failures of both parties, someone who will advocate change, but all that glitters is not gold. Saying that Drumpf would be a good president because he advocates change is like spraying Flex Seal on a bullet wound because it stops leaks. I feel like I’m standing in an ER watching a nurse holding a bottle of spray on rubber and I’m so startled by the need to explain the problem that I don’t know how or where to begin.
