The Party of Lincoln Is Rejecting the Legacy of Lincoln

In doing some research on Billings state senate candidate Robert Saunders, I came upon a provision in the Montana Republican Party platform that surprised me.

Selling Your Soul for a Fantasy

"I'm voting for Trump because he's pro-life."Hang on a moment. Trump has made vowing to build a wall across the U.S./Mexican border the signature mark of his campaign. He has pledged to deport eleven million undocumented immigrants. These are people who came here to build better lives, to give their children a better life than they had. And yet, at Trump rallies you hear thousands of people chanting "BUILD THE WALL! BUILD THE WALL!" How is stirring up anti-immigrant sentiment and promising … [Read more...]
