Thinking back on the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney wasn’t much more than Don Trump in a prettier, more presentable package.
Mitt talked about “makers and takers” when he thought he was speaking only to a like-minded, very white audience. Fortunately someone recorded audio and video of his speech. Who were Mitt’s takers? They were largely the non-white citizens and residents of the United States Don Trump excoriates, works to exclude, and moves to pull the rug out from under, reversing decades of civil rights successes.
There’s a common denominator to Romney and Trump, something more than whiteness. It’s staring us right in the face every time we enter the voting booth. The United States needs a new American Conservative Party to act as a counter to the Democratic party, because the GOP, the party of Trump, is hopelessly broken.
