One reason Donald Trump's candidacy is being so wildly embraced is because people see once dependable institutions corrupted and rotting-Rush Limbaugh

9/23/15, "Trump Arrives at a Time When the Pillars of Society Are Crumbling," Rush Limbaugh

"But, as I look just at this country and the things that liberalism is touching, another reason why Donald Trump's candidacy is being so wildly embraced is because whether people can consciously define it...or not, they feel it--everything that used to be dependable in our country seems to be corrupted now. 

There used to be pillars that you could rely on in times of trouble for strength and courage and confidence....There used to be things in place that when the degradation started, at least it was gonna run up against an immovable force and stop. There doesn't seem to be that anymore.

It seems everything is being corrupted and rotting away. And even the most respected, hoped-for institutions have not seemed to escape the corruption....Both parties I'm sure have corrupt individuals, this kind of thing, but liberalism exists in a corrupt state. It's whole point is to tear down things that stand in its way, whether it happens within the democratic process by virtue of vote or not. And I think a lot of people are scared by it. And so they'll embrace any person or thing that they think might arrest it.  Anyway, Jim, I appreciate the call. Thanks much." image from


Comment: When you have only one functioning political party you have no checks and balances. A healthy two party system advocating two distinctly different sets of views would be a start at providing them.
