No GOP outsiders, no matter the cost

The column by Gary Abernathy in the March 26 edition of the News Journal certainly summed up our ruling clique of establishment Republicans. They are determined to preserve and protect their establishment. No outsiders allowed, no matter the cost.

The candidacy of Donald Trump has finally brought this fact into the open. These elites have been ignoring their constituents and voters for years now, but it took this election cycle to make it so obvious. Their tactics are reminiscent of those used by other groups — join us or suffer the consequences.

The Republican Party must get back to its roots as a conservative, constitutional party of “We The People”, or I am afraid this party is over. Our elections will continue to be just an exercise for determining which party is in control of our mach from democratic republic to socialism.
