34. I don't see how the Republican Party survives

Unless the infection that's been running rampant within the party for decades is defeated. No sane person can discuss, compromise or negotiate with those who claim a different (alternate) set of facts. No one who believes that our democratic Republic and rule of law construct is beneficial, absolutely necessary for a free nation to exist, is willing to hop on the fascist train and call it good.

Members of the current GOP need to be defeated, run out of town. Their willingness to bend to every conspiracy, every disgusting rumor makes them untrustworthy. Their penchant for putting personal ambition over the safety of the American public makes them dangerous. Their embrace of Trumpism makes them unreliable, decidedly unAmerican. Burning the House down so they can see Libs weep makes them childish, selfish adolescents.

Trouble is we need a two-party system to make the system work properly. The question is what do you do when the opposing party becomes diseased? Flush the infection out and hope for the best? Or cut off the limb before it infects the whole of the body politic?

It's a question that will need to be answered in short order. Because this cannot go on without the country's security and baseline values being further compromised.

We're in for a very long haul.
