Huffpost: Prominent Republicans Put GOP On Notice With Breakaway Party Threat

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/gop-new-party-threat-statement_n_609ba9fae4b0909247fd570a

They should have done it the day the party elected the moron. Better late than ever i guess.
Sad thing is Liz Cheney & former senator Jeff Flake - who both now oppose him - helped create this monster. Cheney is now standing up to him, now that her position is threatened. But in the past she's stuck w/ his birtherisms & anti-Muslim lies. Same w Flake. His name says it all.

They all dug up the graves of bad ideas and dead ideologies to drag those body parts to the lab where they created the monster.
Then the monster escaped the lab and wrecked the village. NOW they are shocked... shocked, I tell you.

Just remember. This may benefit us in the short term, but they are not our friends.

3. They'll need W on board for it to be meaningful

And a few major donors. They essentially have to say, we are willing to lose elections to prevent fascists from taking over the party.

4. 1912 here we come.

A third party will end the Trumpist Party chances of regaining the House. May even reduce their senate seats as well.

6. Former officials.... enough said.

“We’re going to give the GOP one last chance to get its act together and moderate, but we’re not going to hold our breath,”

I can just see it now... "Who's coming with me?" They will walk away by themselves.

7. I'm amused, but I see this as nothing more than an empty, symbolic gesture. How many actual ...

candidates does anyone think this "Breakaway Party" will field in the upcoming 2020 elections? Any at all?

I'm enjoying the discord in the Republicult, and I hope this thing actually goes somewhere. But, I'll believe it when I see it.

9. I do believe the party w splinter. There are already deep fractures

Though how many we dont know. I know for one thing many sensible republicans did vote for Biden, though they did vote for other GOP downballot.
