17. I would argue that the crook and pater Bush weren't that bad

But to argue about them is a waste of time. Neither Nixon nor Poppy Bush would have a snowball’s chance in a red-hot Hell of getting the Republican Party nomination, and the 2016 election and all that led up to it since Nixon’s Southern Strategy shows that the rational, competent responsibly-governing Republicans are but a minority in their party (Not even a plurality), and are likely to remain so—even with direct intervention by God Almighty.

To discuss a successor party to the Republican Party is putting the cart at least a full pasture before the horse, so far away that I doubt I’ll live to see it even if I live to be 100 (I’m 65).

The last mostly-competent Republican President left office on January 20th, 1993. As much as I dislike posting predictions, I’d say that there won’t be another.
