      Could Donald Trump's mission be to destroy the Republican Party?

      Donald Trump's campaign is destroying the Republican Party. He is fitting all of the horrible Republican stereotypes, and he is getting a lot of support from Republicans in doing it. He has many major party figures struggling and dealing with a lot of pain and humiliation to defend him in order to defend the party itself and help the party win the White House back. Those major figures are losing credibility and possibly ruining their careers in politics over their weak defenses of Trump. Conservative media figures, such as Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, are shooting themselves in the feet by defending Trump's outrageous behaviors and comments. Republicans are even dogging the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault. The Trump campaign has put a gigantic magnifying glass on the Republican Party and exposed everything that is disgusting about it. The party looks like what its opposition has always said it is, which is a very long list of terrible things. Could achieving that be what Donald Trump's goal has been this whole time? If so, it is working.

      Donald Trump is extremely good at playing politics. He has thoroughly proven that. Would somebody that intelligent and politically savvy not know what the results of his outrageous comments and actions would be? Was Trump really not expecting what is happening right now? I think he had to have been expecting it.

      With all of that in mind, think about the fact that Trump was really good friends with the Clintons before the election. I would say he still is. I think there is a very high likelihood that Trump has been on a mission to destroy the Republican Party. What do you think?

      Alternatively, he could prove useful in the GOP getting itself back together and not be the laughing stock of American politics anymore. George Will wrote this over at National Review:

      Today, however, Trump should stay atop the ticket, for four reasons. First, he will give the nation the pleasure of seeing him join the one cohort, of the many cohorts he disdains, that he most despises — "losers." Second, by continuing to campaign in the spirit of St. Louis, he can remind the nation of the useful axiom that there is no such thing as rock bottom. Third, by persevering through November 8 he can simplify the GOP’s quadrennial exercise of writing its post-campaign autopsy, which this year can be published November 9 in one sentence: "Perhaps it is imprudent to nominate a venomous charlatan."

      I think it is more likely thathe just never honestly expected to be nominated and never planned on truly running for president. I assume it was about tons of free publicity.

      The republican party has been in need of major reform or to be totally dissolved for a long time, with something to come up out of the ashes. They routinely ignore their constituents' desires, and put up the same stale, soulless candidates who have zero interest in the people's desires or needs. At times in the past I would look to the republican party because I disagreed what was going on in the left, but that's not happened within the last 12 years. Even worse, with the regressive left stuff going on, it's a time where it would be most welcome, yet they refuse to meet that demand. The democrats have progressively gotten worse as well, but simply not to the alarming degree that republicans have (soon to change if more regressives find their way to positions of power). The republican party is suffering right now not so much because Trump embodies republican stereotypes, but because they had been putting up candidates that were well a part of the establishment before running, so they knew their best interests would be in that candidate's mind, rather than only his own or, god forbid, the people's. He simply isn't owned, like everyone else that ran this year and every other year. Republicans (and many people) have partially woken up to that, but the fact that someone like Trump could come through and so easily best them with nothing real to offer, I hope, has taught them a lesson.

      I have heard/seen people say that Trump is not owned. I think he very well might be. He hasn't publicly said who owns him, but he is obsessed with money. I think he is the epitome of somebody who could be bought. I would definitely never trust him not to be.

      I'm sure it's possible he's owned by somebody, but I'm not certain (like with other candidates) that he's owned by the same people everyone else is. I don't think it's something that important, he's still a terrible candidate. Only problem is Hillary is too. I hate most of Bernie Sanders' policies, but god would I appreciate it right now if he were the democrat's candidate.

      edit: I shouldn't quite say I hate most of Sanders' policies, but I lean far more libertarian than what would allow me to be comfortable with the fact he was in favor of moving us in the direction of Europe. However, like I implied by what I wrote, I would vote for him over Hillary and Trump in a heartbeat.

      I don't think trump is bought or could be bought. I think he is cray enough to do cray things for free.

      Donald Trump is what happens when you spend 40 + years as a party cozying up with racists, xenophobes, and the worst in humanity. I think he was just out to sell some books at first, but I do feel as though he's using simple mind control techniques on some of the populace, willing to fall for short, simple phrasing.

      Donald is also bought into making more money, who knows whose in his pocket but he's certainly going to be looking out for himself first and foremost.. He exudes greed and malice. His tax plans, don't even make any logical sense, he's the suicide option and the the people saying he's not Hillary as if that's some qualifier drive me nuts.

      This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R'lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway.

      Yeah, that really baffles me. When did Republicans start embracing moral relativism? They were passionately against it not too long ago. I won't vote for a candidate I think is a dangerous psychopath, even if the other major contender is more of one. If you vote within that dilemma, you vote for the dilemma. That type of dilemma exists because people support the two sides of it. People like Donald Trump get into power because people vote for them. No matter what the excuse is, voting for people like that is what they depend on for their power. They won't get any of my help with that.

      This is disinformation to meddle the water. Trump is a candidate of the Feds (FBI). He has other mission. see other thread "Donald Trump makes fun of disability of reporter".
