This is very difficult for me to admit but I've come to the conclusion that President Trump is not fit to lead my party or this country. I supported Trump because I was so excited about the possibility of Republicans controlling all branches of government and getting good conservative policies in place but that isn't happening. I'm very happy about the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court but other than that we are getting nothing done. I have come to realize that I have been in denial for some time about why that is. I now see that the problem is and always has been Trump. He doesn't have the qualifications to lead and his erratic behavior is plunging this country into caos. I can't believe I am saying this but lord help me it's the truth. As long as Trump is in office we Republicans are going to waste a golden opportunity to pass a strong conservative agenda.

There is no one "fit to lead" the Republican Party because most of the Republican Party isn't fit to lead.  

How about we keep the president, dump the fake Republicans, and replace them with real ones?

Term limits would get rid of the establishment. We need to get rid of the whole lot of them.

Because the President clearly doesn't understand how to work with congress in order to get anything done. At this point I'm not sure he even gives a damn what happens to the country.

We have term limits. They are called elections. If we don't want the same people in office forever we have the opportunity to vote them out every 2 to 6 years depending on the office.

You are misplacing blame.

EXACTLY!

Until last Oct 1, I was not a Clinton supporter at all, but the more I listened, I knew she was the only qualified candidate on the ballot. So, I held my nose and voted for her. I would have voted for Kasich or Bush over Clinton-

Trump is an unqualified disaster.

I voted for Trump because I always vote Republican and have tried to tell myself for months that it was the right call. I could never vote for Hillary though.

Who is to blame then? It isn't congress. Trump has no coherent vision for what he wants to get done. Good presidents propose legislation to congress. They don't put everything on congress to come up with from scratch. George W. Bush had an agenda and got it done while he had a Republican congress. You can't talk in vague generalities, push congress to come up with something to satisfy those generalities as fast as possible and expect to get results. That is unfair.

And you had to vote for him before you understood what an unfit jerk he is?  Not that I think ALL Republican ALL the time is a good idea-it isn't.  And the Republicans refusing to even consider Obama's pivck for the Supreme Court was appalling.  A travesty.  There is virtually no Republican that was fit for the office this last time out.  Trump was just the worst of the lot.

I think one party only voting is a horrible tactic. Trump was not the best or most qualified person for the job- he never gave any constitutionally based policy plans during his campaign. He blew smoke and people, many "party only" voters bought it.

I am glad you realize your mistake and are adult enough to admit it.

Maybe, a change in voting tactic is in order.
