"be careful here at this stone, you see these holes? Here is a rattlesnake lives," warns Linda Rawles. It is better to make a lot of noise, to drive away the worst case, deadly animal.
a lot of noise to make. This is Rawles's life motto in these remaining months before the presidential election. A lot of noise to make, in order to prevent Bad, even worse in November.
The 61-year-old lawyer, is struggling like so many US-Americans of their age group, with all means against a second term of Donald Trump. You are fighting against a President who for you ashamed. For his racism, his misogyny, his immigration policy, and the boorish way he pushes decades-old allies on the head, she says.
she struggles but, above all, against the man who has destroyed her political home.a Republican through and through
Linda Rawles is a Republican. Full-blood Republican. Since your 13. Age is committed to the woman, who lives with her husband in Carefree, which is a part of Phoenix, Arizona, for this party. Has always made re-election campaign for party friends at the local and regional level, and 1994 to a seat in Congress fought. For a victory it was not enough. In her voice a mixture of Pride and melancholy sounds, nevertheless, when she bends over the old campaign brochures.
"I'm still the same values," she says. For a free market, the United States had been founded by America. And for individual responsibility. "In my opinion, the government should leave Your wallet and Your bedroom alone."
But of all the Donald Trump, has been four years, nothing is left: "He has made the party of a party of freedom a party, the dictators, courts and the law, destroyed foundations." Rawles finds harsh words for the President, speaks of a "mentally disturbed sociopaths."Arizona long secure Bank
Arizona was in the presidential elections for decades, a safe bet for the Republicans. Choice researchers say that may change this year. Especially women like Linda Rawles, living in well-off suburbs, were decisive for who will win at the end of the battle for the White house.
Now the new infections explode beds are missing, in more and more hospitals to provide adequate treatment. COVID-19-patients are much to be dismissed early and to put more people. The mortuaries are no longer sufficient to cool the dead, before they can be buried in the desert heat.
"Donald Trump has blood on his hands, he has ignored the Virus, because it was politically embarrassing," says Rawles. "He has convinced our Governor to open everything much too early and now people are dying." Because it is good economy to pay more important to be than a hundred thousand and more Dead. It is not possible to separate the pandemic and the economy. "The a's hanging very closely together," says the lawyer.All
share, more and more Republicans are using the crisis management of the government unhappy, as Rawles. And yet, for many, almost impossible to open from the Trump away. "If You were so firmly convinced of something, it's hard, this mental change to get," she explains. "It is hard to say: I was wrong. This requires a lot of courage." So proud of you on the former Trump supporters, who now openly against their former candidate and, as much as she despised the party leadership, which holds the President of the bar.
she is convinced that the Republicans have only one Chance to survive as a party and to refocus on their core values, when the whole management team is replaced. Who continues to be a Fan of Donald Trump, the parts also of his moral compass, and these people have no trust anymore. "I wanna get back to my party," says Rawles. In the end it is about what wool is it for a man: one who follows the law and be respected, or, the child locks on the border in cages.A new party?
Even if Linda Rawles declines in large Parts of the policy, Joe Biden's, will you choose him this fall. He was at least a decent and mentally healthy person. And everything is better than Trump. In time, however, you want to back your own political home. A more traditional party, which represents your economic ideas, and not so far to the left as the Democrats.
But the Republicans can overcome their existential crisis, even if Trump loses the election in November? Linda Rawles has big doubts. Maybe you need to change at the end of the whole party system, she says - or even a new party.
all This, however, is something for the future. Now you must fight with all our strength. And a lot of noise to make. As at the great stone which is in your front yard.
