The current crop of Republican candidates and Republican party as a whole are the direct result of basing our country’s moral values on profit margins instead of what is right. To create good profit margins you have to make questionable choices, ignore the rules, and bend the truth. You make short-term decisions to maximize profit, while ignoring long-term consequences, which you later rationalize for damage control. The dealings of our companies at home and over seas have reflected badly on our country because profit always took precedence over morality and the Republican party supports these actions. They then ask our soldiers to clean up the mess, making a tidy profit on the deal. Hell, Donald Trump condemns those who abuse the programs provided by our government, while abusing them himself (see bankruptcy laws). Unfortunately, we are all to blame for buying into the system. All that junk you have to store in self storage units because you need to buy more stuff supports this ungodly system. We have created this monster even when we don’t vote Republican since we support the companies that back them with our purchases. We have the government we deserve; we just don’t like it. What happens in the future will be a result of are greed now.
