Seriously what are Republicans offering? Is it just fear tactics and divisiveness?

What are they offering the American people? To the people voting for them?
For all the dissent amongst Democrats, I appreciate that they are bringing IDEAS! Whether its Medicaid 4 all, free college tuition, improving Obamacare, universal income, Universal Pre- K, Green new deal. I can look at all these ideas and evaluate if they add value to my life, my community, our country and our planet.

I was just watching the Kentucky Gov's political ad. Nothing about what he would do for the people. It was be afraid of the scary democrats. They don't share our values. I'm sure values is not so coded racist/bigoted.

Then I listened to a reporter that said he asked the Gov why he spent so much time talking about Trump and nationalizing a local race while his opponent was focused on education, healthcare etc. The reporter said the Gov responded by saying Trump wins. He won by 30 points. So this is what he chose to offer his constituents. Trump?
At the rally last night, he was firing up the crowd by saying lets show the country we support Pres Trump.

So at what point do these PUBLIC SERVANTS actually SERVE THE PUBLIC? Is the plan really fear tactics, fear the scary democrats and others and worship president trump?

So confused. Well not really. But just continued to be amazed by how many people accept this...

3. Two things...

You won't have a Democrat in office.
There is no real logic behind this, just the promise that the Republican won't be a Democrat and that's enough for many.

Also you will be supporting America's savior, Donald Trump.
He is the only person who can save America.
Also no explanation as to what this means either.
Just the empty idea is enough for many people to follow blindly.

That's what they offer.
Empty phrases and prejudices which is plenty to convince millions to vote for them.

4. Those values are white nationalism and patriarchy, plain and simple.

Those values are couched in "small government/states' rights," "religious freedom" and whatnot.

The right/freedom to discriminate (against POC, women, immigrants, non-Christians) and deny equal opportunity.

Anyone who thinks the Republican Party would survive in a world free of racism and sexism is out of their mind. A substantial reduction in racism alone would destroy the GOP.
