The main aim of the current Republican party is to reduce taxes on the wealthy and get rid of entitlements. His base, even the ones who depend on those entitlements are not really opposed to this since they believe that most of those entitlements go to "those people". A sane Trump might be even better at this. Does no one here recall that W wanted to end Social Security, but wiser heads prevailed. Those wiser heads have left the party. No, I prefer an incompetent Trump to a competent one.
