LETTER: Keep president in check, vote for Democrats

It appears that the Republican party — which used to be an economically conservative and socially responsible party — has morphed itself into a new political party: The Trumplican party.

This new party has abandoned those principles and refuses to confront its leader, the president, when he continuously lies, disparages our intelligence community, and insults our European allies and North Atlantic Treaty Organization, according to media reports.

But who does he praise?

Vladimir Putin.

I think Congress has abrogated its responsibility to check a president and his administration which seems to be spiraling out of control.

So what do we do?

Several well-known conservatives have abandoned the Republican party including George Will, Max Boot, Steve Schmidt and Bill Krystal, according to media reports.

They have suggested that possibly the only solution to checking the president is for the Democrats to regain control of Congress in the 2018 election cycle.

And I agree.

Vote Democrat.

Pam Carter,

Sequim
