    What do you think of America's Republican party?

    I think Republicans are an oppressed minority suffering from bigotry. I didn't read all of "What the Rest of the World Thinks About the Republican Party." but funny stuff, this from the UK:

    The Republican Party is one of those organizations that never fails to reaffirm my identity as a European lefty. If I ever feel my faith in socialized healthcare, economic redistribution, or exotic brands of hummus weakening, I know that all I have to do is read about the latest Republican plan to give assault weapons to teachers or privatize American oxygen and I'll be OK again.

    My thoughts - nay feelings! - on the Republican party are correlated logarithmically with my sense of admiration for Donald Trump's toupee.

    I never imagined that was a toupee. Looks too ridiculous. Guess they went overboard with the calculation to make it not look too perfect, so as to appear natural.

    I think it's great that the candidates are God's conduits. At least the last debate didn't digress into who was most like Reagan.
    The idea that there is more is essential to our humanity.

    Bunch of sensationalists.

    Though their appeal to emotion gets votes and has been proven to be effective, it's still a ridiculously absurd way to go on deciding who should lead. It's hard for me to respect them as a party.

    Both major parties are complete jokes, and generally if I hear someone denigrating one a whole lot more than the other I can probably give up on hearing anything interesting or original regarding politics from that person.

    You know those loud Republicans who flame other Republicans as RINOs (Republicans In Name Only)? They're the real RINOs. John Rogers speaks for me:
