It seems that anyone who wishes to argue in good faith in the future would need to possess some sort of code of ethics that can be used to explain and defend one’s position. This applies to anything. And by supporting this amoral president, it seems that Republicans are selling much more than their current soul, they are also giving away any semblance of arguing in good faith on myriad subjects in the future if their party is no longer in the White House. You couldn’t say, impeach a future President for obtaining foreign help in winning election. You couldn’t argue against the selling of pardons. You can’t be opposed to a future president making money off the office. You can’t be opposed to a future president hiring just their family members. You can’t argue against deficit spending or debt reduction. It seems endless the number of things that can’t be argued against in good faith. And I guess that’s the key. — none of their arguments were ever in good faith.
Topics Which Republicans Can No Longer Complain About
I have noticed that since the election of Trump, the Republicans have abandoned nearly every “principle” that they claimed to have during Obama’s terms in office. I just want to document all the things the Republicans believe, by their lack of inquiry, is perfectly OK.
- fiscal responsibility (the deficit, the debt)
- rule of law
- friendliness with america’s enemies/dictators
- enriching themselves from the office
- affecting the stock market
- attacking american companies
- paying off strippers
- multiple affairs/wives/children
