In all honesty, both parties can’t be trusted on key issues in American politics ranging from mass migration to foreign policy. The reality is that the US has a uniparty in DC that features cosmetic differences but when it comes to public policy there’s hardly any difference between the two parties.
If Republican voters want to see a GOP that actually upholds grassroots values, they must support nationalist candidates in the primaries in order to purge the GOP of out-of-touch, establishment types. The current crop of GOP leaders are simply not capable of managing the country’s affairs in a way that advances the country’s interests.
