If there is one shred of decency left in the Republican Party?

Now is the moment to show it.

It is not the time to stand silently and loyally in the name of Party. It is a time to stand for your country and to declare independence.

It doesn't mean you have to join the Democratic Party.

But it does mean that you have to break from the dangerously delusional Republican Party.

There will be no other moment.

Now is the time.

5. Yep. They have always been an immediate threat and clear and present danger

to our country, and all life on the planet. No decent person would ever consider joining the Republican party, because, in reality, everything the Republican party does, and stands for, is evil. The Republican party does nothing that is good. It is corrupt to the core, and then some.

After this debacle with Trump and Republicans trying to illegally nullify the election, end democracy, overthrow our government, and establish a permanent authoritarian dictatorship with Trump appointed as dictator for life, there are no more excuses or justifications for someone to willingly be a member of the Republican party. No reasonable, decent human being would ever become a member of the Republican party, because of all the evil the Republican party has done, is doing, and will continue to do.

The Republican party is a collective of anti-American fascists, intent on ending democracy in America. They are the enemies of our country, and they have proven this, beyond all reasonable doubt.

We have the receipts.

4. And the sadistic Republicans can give the people no hope...

...Or even a sign that they care even one whit, as the people of this country suffer.

They are a spineless lot.

Sounds like fake news to me.

12. The Republican Party no longer believes in drmocracy

They have moved to full-out authoritarianism ( as any woman could tell you with their relentless push to control women’s bodies). Appealing to their decency is a waste of breath. They have none.

19. That's not the right call to action, IMO

That surrenders the entire GOP to Trump and Trumpism. 30M GOP voters are Trump loyalists and will follow him off of the top of Trump Tower. But 40M more GOP voters are essentially GOP loyalists and only follow Trump as far as the GOP tells them to.

For the sake of our country, the GOP brand can't be handed to Trump. Trump and his 30M Trump Tower Jumpers need to be pushed into forming their own MAGA Party.

To pull that off requires that "rational" Republicans need to do some tricky balancing to push the next-era of the GOP back toward the center by pushing out the MAGA, threatening to leave the GOP, enough of them actually leaving to prove they are serious, but... ultimately staying in the GOP to secure the 40M voters are lead back toward the center.

It's a nearly impossible balancing act, but it's made feasible by Trump's own narcissism. He wants so badly to be the center of it all, that he might force a MAGA 3rd Party just out of spite.

21. Turn-about?

Imagine!

I would love to see these Republicans with their families individually rounded up and placed into an electrified, fenced-off, 600 square foot lot in the hills of West Virginia in February...
in a 4 room non-weather tight rickety cabin where they were required to live for one month...
then give them food stamps, a hundred bucks, water from a well, two sets of clothing, no car, no electricity, no gas, a small fireplace with no wood to burn (but give them an axe if they want to use it)...
and an old, overly used outhouse (with an old Sears Catalog)...
for one month!

then see how they view life.

22. Only half a shred left

Mitt Romney voted to convict on 1 of 2 counts for impeachment, but not the other one. So, he was halfway decent.
