Donald Trump and the Republican Party have taken control over this government, that's reality; and now the nightmare begins.

This combination of control-obsessed politicians is poised to pursue an agenda that will shake the foundations of this country. Millions upon millions of Americans wait with a feeling of great apprehension about what is going to happen now and how their lives will be affected.

Here's a preview of what we in America can expect:

To say the Republican Party, a majority of its leadership and a sizable portion of its membership, have sociopathic tendencies is, if anything, an understatement. Once this party was known as the party of Lincoln but that association ended decades ago. Since then the GOP has evolved into the party of Ayn Rand, the highly controversial and self-professed sociopathic leaning activist.

Saying that the Republican Party possesses sociopathic tendencies is certainly a strong statement so let's explore this situation and prove that this belief is quite accurate based on clearly documented facts and evidence.

First let's define the term sociopath so we know what is meant by sociopathic tendencies. The typical definition is: "A person with a personality problem marked by antisocial behavior -- a person who has little regard for the feelings of others and manipulates them in order to get what he or she desires."

All those with this condition are basically of the same mindset; however there are different degrees of manifestation of this condition it in one individual versus another. Those politicians who fit these characteristics are in a class of their own, not nearly as bad as some, but still largely out of touch with most Americans. Here's a few of those specific characteristics of that class of politicians:

Exhibiting a lack of empathy or remorse

Watching people struggling, trying to just stay afloat doesn't seem to faze them

Difficulty in relating to people different than themselves

Irresponsible, reactionary, impulsive behavior

Unapologetic for questionable actions

Now let's talk about the connection between Republican Party and Ayn Rand.

In examining this connection between Rand and the Republican Party I've come to the conclusion that their ideologies are very much the same. To do so I reviewed youtube.com and other videos in which noted interviewers such as Mike Wallace, Phil Donahue and others have brought to our attention Rand's beliefs and philosophies and I come up with what appear to be the central message:

That a man's moral obligation is only to himself and most certainly not to others who may be in some kind of need. She made it clear that no person or any government bears any responsibility to come to the aid others; she stated that she was completely against altruism which is "the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others."
