Purveyor of Truth
Following are closing paragraphs excerpted from a Wall Street Journal op ed article by Michael Brendan Dougherty.
To many Republican primary voters, the politicians' race is populated by traitors in waiting. They look ready or even anxious to cave on religious liberty, or on mass immigration. Maybe immigration and economic insecurity for the working class are going to do to the Republicans what these issues have been doing to major parties in Europe.
No longer can the politicians' race be conducted as if the populists' race doesn't exist. If today's Iowa and New Hampshire poll numbers look anything like the future results of those states' presidential contests, the bubbled existence of the politicians' race will be the greatest self-delusion in modern American politics. If they want to win, the leaders of the politicians' race need to actively push Trump and Carson out of their way and find a way to attract their supporters. If the politicians don't fight for their party, someone else might just wreck it for them.
Mr. Dougherty certainly makes his point. If the GOP leadership and the party moderates do not react and respond to the fears of the working class and present strong arguments centered on truth and reason, challenging the questionable statements made by Trump and Carson, then the once credible and respected GOP is likely to be destroyed from within.
