Is Trump the New Zachary Taylor ? - POLITICO Magazine

     I like reading these tomes attempting to apply Trumpism to some other era in history. Of course there are the nasty Nazi allusions, but on a more mellow note, this column suggests Donald Trump is the harbinger of demise for the GOP like Zachary Taylor was for the Whigs when he barely won in 1848 on a platform of bombast and how many Mexicans he had slain in the war a couple years earlier.
    Of course, not all situations are the same and back then there was also the deep divide over slavery, which it could be argued was a major factor.
    If the parties fade it will be people no longer feel they are relevant, and not conveniently blamed on one iconoclast.

Its just another lame-ass attempt to attack Trump with a false narrative using false equivalences. When you look at Hillary and Barry, and the stupidity they engaged our country in, around the world, there is no logical choice but to support the Donald.

When the republican party is finally succumbs due to the parasitic democratic voter, it will be because of the indoctrination that takes place on the airwaves, in the print media and in our education system, coupled with open borders. No one person such as Trump can destroy the party.
