This election nonsense by Trump may end up splitting up the Republican Party. I just don’t see how the one third (?) who are principled conservatives can stay in the same party with Trump sycophants who are willing to sign onto the TX Supreme Court case.

We also saw the alt right types chanting “destroy the GOP” in Washington today because they didn’t keep Trump in power. I think the Q types will also hold the same ill will toward the traditional Republican Party. In fact its quite possible that all the voters who are really in a Trump personality cult will also blame the GOP for his loss. It’s only a matter of time IMO before Trump himself gets around to blaming the GOP.

There is some discussion of this on Twitter. What do you all think?

Wasn’t sure where to put this

It turns out ignoring bedrock environmental lawsmay not have been the best choice for a multibillion-dollar construction project. Photos show former President Donald Trump’s border wall in deep disrepair after summer monsoon rains literally blew floodgates off their hinges…..

This is no longer a serious political party. And for good measure, his “formal request” was addressed to the VP and misspelled her name.

Women he went to college with formally requested that he stop sexually harassing them and the guy who saved his life has formally requested that he stop lying publicly about the car wreck that put him in the wheelchair, but he didn't and hasn't. This guy can get bent.

From the post
============
……..We’re seeing what a profound difference there is in how Democrats and Republicans view power.

When Democrats have it, they’re often apologetic, uncertain and hesitant to use it any way that anyone might object to.

Republicans, on the other hand, will squeeze it and stretch it as far as they can. They aren’t reluctant, and they aren’t afraid of a backlash. Whatever they can do, they will do.

Think of how the two parties react when presented with an obstacle to getting what they want. Democrats often issue statements of regret: We’d like to move forward, but what can we do? This is how democracy works.


Republicans, on the other hand, react to obstacles by getting creative. They search for loopholes, they engineer procedural workarounds, they devise innovative ways to seize and wield control.

When they come up with an idea and someone says, “That’s madness — no one has ever dared try something like that before,” they know they’re on the right track…….
