Letter to the editor: GOP responsible for the president

A Republican candidate came to the house recently as part of his fall campaign. A decent person, moderate and well spoken. But he has an “(R)” after his name.
In this election, in these times, this is a problem. The Republican Party is now the Trump Republican Party, and, to be polite, Trump has some problems. Serious Problems. Trump is the issue.
Hence, in this election, we should vote out all Republicans. Either they have to take a strong stand against him (separate from the Republican Party), or they have to go. We have to hold the Republican Party accountable for Donald Trump. They voted him in, they are not standing up to his awfulness, they are, in effect, complicit in the disgrace he is causing America. Our only choice is a strong referendum against the Republicans.
And the ballot box is the proper way to resolve this.
After Trump is gone, we can go back to normal politics and the discussion of issues. In this election, it is about Trump.
If you want to be a Republican, you have to defend this: cruelty (separation of families), corruption (money laundering, oligarchy, profiteering, Russian connection), collusion (Russian meddling), chaos and incompetence (White House staff, loyalty versus all other values), and autocracy (no respect for rule of law). Not to mention the lies, the divisiveness and the calls for violence.
Trump is the issue. No Trump No Republicans
Van Talmage
