Trump would rather beat down those who would disagree with him than actually listen to what they are saying. His boot to the neck philosophy is his way of letting everyone know that he is special and everyone else is not. He is like a child who throws tantrums when he doesn't get his way and then stomps his feet when he is ignored. He is the savage in a lord of the flies kind of way. The republican party has become a cesspool by attracting what is worst about America to it's stench. The filth of demeaning Americans and shoving American's concerns aside so that they can rule as they see fit is their agenda.
Republicans have chosen the poster boy of huckster and conniver as their leader and it is appropriate given their disdain for the principles of democracy. You know, that equality of opportunity, fairness and justice annoyances. The republican party has given us a glimpse into what it is like to be a hateful blood lusting ignoramus. We are seeing it front and center with his continual rhetoric extolling the "virtue" of survival of the fittest and narcissism as a value. I have long said that the republican party has been exposed as the party of the deranged and greedy and we get to see that on a daily basis now until the election when the republican party will be rebuked by a vast majority of voters. Good riddance and better for America with them gone.
