President Donald Trump acts like the whole Republican Party is this ultra-conservative faction. He acts like the whole Democratic Party is the ultra-liberal faction. Both parties have their good and bad points, but none is the enemy of the people.

I’m heading toward the RINO and Blue Dog Democrat designations. Trump hasn’t publicly denounced them, yet. They seem to hold more to the people-over-party representation craved by the public.

It is quite natural for the party in power to resist losing its influence (power). But the appearance of cheating, propaganda, lies, gerrymandering, voter suppression, public manipulation of social media and more is not the way to keep it.
