I see the GOP now as someone in a zombie movie who's been bitten. They aren't going to recover, and they'll just recruit others to join their group - unless the non-infected form an island of themselves, away from the original group.

Democrats need to bind together, despite their wildly different ideas of what the future should be, and the GOP needs to split like an amoeba into two parts: Trump-worshippers and folks who espouse smaller government, fewer taxes, more freedom/fewer rules. Obviously, the current GOP has nothing to do with personal freedom (see all their new lawmaking), and aren't at all about smaller government with less intervention. That version of the GOP needs to get its footing again.

LOL!  Fair enough.  I do remember you making that point earlier.  

Clearly, I have little or no concern for many local issues that may be of great importance to you and others in your community.

For me, the priority is convincing the Republican Party to turn away from Trump.    Most of the time, the choice for sitting president is between tweedle dee and tweedle dum.  Centrist political forces keep things predictable and relatively stable.  US powerful special interests act in a fairly consistent manner.   Communication is easy.

Trump is a radical, dangerous outlier.

Her principled stance against Trump, despite the political risks, deserves admiration.

Exactly.  That is my point.  Most unfortunate. 

Perhaps unrelated, but here and there in US-based social media I am seeing some really disrespectful, nasty back and forth in the comments section.  (RP is rather well behaved by comparison.) 

Between the decline in civil discourse and the rampant lying that that passes for 'politics', I am worried.   The world is a very technologically complex place these days.   A constant stream of personal insults and mistruths is not helping.

I do not support the hyper-partisan and polarized political behaviour of so many Americans.  That will lead to the faster decline of US power and cause all kinds of problems for those of us in small, rich western democracies.

In the case of Liz Cheney, I admire her courage to challenge the former president and his supporters.  I admire the way she carries herself in the public eye.  I do not have to look in order to know that she and I likely disagree on a whole host of policies.      

Hypothetically speaking, if I was a US citizen and lived in her riding, I would likely vote for her.  As a reward for her persistent political risk taking and in part because I am so thoroughly disgusted with the policies of the Democrats.  There is no third or fourth viable option.

All of the references were deleted in the January 2020 text message purge by the Trump loyalists.

I'm sure all of that is just more media bias BS from the liberal elites.

So you are totally unaware of the Steel Dozier and its role and Comey and McCabe's roles in securing FISA warrants ?  Never heard of Operation Crossfire Hurricane ?

Surprised you are unaware of any of this.  Must be Beltway Blindness or something.

yep, you deserve Trump.

Trump Has Big Plans for 2025, and He Doesn’t Care Whether You Think He’ll Win
As he contemplates a third straight run for the presidency, Donald Trump has a multimillion-dollar political machine and a network of tax-exempt advocacy groups at his disposal. He also has a plan. The plan is to wrest control of the federal government from what he sees as a policy apparatus dominated by “radical left-wing Democrats.” (...)

Trump has catalyzed racism and racial resentment, misogyny, white status decline, identity threat, economic anxiety, hatred of liberal elites and rage at globalization. Now this incendiary mix is at hand for any willing politician to capitalize on. There is no shortage of takers. But Trump is not just going to walk away and let other candidates stir his toxic political brew.
