A Message to Democrats from Your New Ally Victory is near.

The Bulwark
by STUART STEVENS OCTOBER 22, 2020 5:17 AM

I’ve spent a lot of my life—far too much in retrospect—waging war on the Democratic party. It was my job and I was good at it but in all those battles, even in the toughest of races, I never hated the other side... But I never feared for the country if the Democrats won.

This year, for the first time in my life, I’m helping out the other side, because I very much do fear for the country under an even more unrestrained Donald Trump...Having spent decades attacking the Democratic party, I don’t approach your party with any illusions about it being perfect. But I am convinced that the Democratic party has remained far truer to aspirational American values than the compromised, moral disgrace that is the party which endorsed Roy Moore and welcomes the dangerous lunacy of QAnon. I am proud to be helping a good and decent man like Joe Biden and I welcome the future that is represented by Senator Harris.

So to my Democratic friends: Let us go forward in this final stretch with the confidence that our mission is vital and our opponent is weak...Years from now you will look back on these last days as some of the best in your lives. An evil was unleashed in the country you love and you rose to smite it. You will slay this dragon.

Trump is collapsing and his allies of convenience are panicked. Now is when you turn a victory into a rout. We are all tired, but the other side isn’t just tired. They are frightened and confused. As they should be. Because they are losing the fight for the soul of this country. And they know it.
Victory is near.

6. That was very well written!

While I have read a few articles by non-practicing repubs that do believe in Biden and want to help our side, I don't recall one that exposed their own ugliness quite so openly in the process:

Today’s Republicans are not worthy of the great legacy they inherited. When grown men and women refuse to denounce a man who boasts he did not rape a woman because “she was not my type,” any semblance of public good has been lost. I can’t direct the Republican party to the lost and found where it might reclaim its soul, but I do know that defeat, while not sufficient, is necessary in order for it to embark on that journey.
