The Uni-Party Circles The Wagons

 Fifteen seconds into reading this just reinforced my conviction that we need a Third Party in this country to rally behind so that we can start picking these RINO assholes off first and then go after the other Shit Weasels.

Of course the very first thing we need to do is dig up the masters of the election stealing machine currently running at wide open throttle and yank the controls out of their hands.

The Memo: GOP and nation grapples with what comes next

“This is the beginning of the divorce,” former GOP congressman Carlos Curbelo told The Hill on Friday, as aftershocks from insurrectionary violence two days before reverberated across the nation.

Curbelo, who represented Florida’s 26th District from 2015 to 2019, was predicting a final and permanent split between President Trump and the Republican Party.

His assessment took another step toward reality a few hours later when Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) became the first GOP senator to call for Trump’s resignation, even though there were then only 13 days left in his White House tenure.

“I want him out. He has caused enough damage,” Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News.

Murkowski also mused publicly on her future within the GOP. 

“If the Republican Party has become nothing more than the party of Trump, I sincerely question whether this is the party for me,” she said.

On Sunday, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) echoed Murkowski's call, telling CNN  that Trump's resignation would be "the best path forward."

The Republican Party, and the nation at large, are grappling with related issues. 

The GOP is mulling what it should look like, and stand for, in a post-Trump era. For the nation, there are questions about whether the boil of extreme militancy has been lanced, or whether last week’s violence was an ominous harbinger. 

"At the level of American party politics, I think this is a turning point, a watershed — and the beginning of the end of Donald Trump as a major figure inside the political system," said Larry Diamond, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University who has written extensively about threats to democracy. 

Yet Diamond also cautioned that, when it comes to the danger from far-right extremists willing to engage in violence, "the boil hasn't even begun to be lanced, and the poison is still growing." 

I have some shocking news for Mr. Diamond.

You ain't seen nothing yet asshole.

We literally haven't even gotten started yet.

I will never vote for another Republican. In fact if no Trump Party candidate is running, I'll vote for the dem just to accelerate the burn.

If that means Tom Cotton gets the boot for a Regressive, really what's the difference when the chips were down?
