Comment on David Brooks, “The Republican Fausts”

A response to this column by David Brooks, published January 31, 2017.

“The deal they’ve struck with the devil comes at too high a price. It really will cost them their soul.”

David, you make one small error in your analogy. These Fausts created the devil they now face. Thirty years of radical anti-Americanism, bigotry, racism, violating one norm of governance after another, suppressing the vote of those who might disagree with them, sending our economy to the brink of collapse, never deviating from obstructing a President who still managed to pull us out of the financial catastrophe they created, and of course pursuing at all costs any policy to increase economic inequality at the expense of our working and middle classes. The net result? President Donald J. Trump.

Republicans, before you can lose your soul, you have to have one.
