The fight against Trumpism is only beginning

Opinion by Reed Galen

Reed Galen is a co-founder of the Lincoln Project.

While President Trump will leave office as a failed, one-term president, the fight against Trumpism is just beginning.

A year ago, The Lincoln Project launched with two stated goals: First, Defeat Donald Trump at the ballot box. Second, ensure Trumpism failed alongside him. We are proud to have been a part of the broad and deep coalition that helped elect Joe Biden and Kamala D. Harris to the White House. Trumpism, however, is far from extinction.

The six weeks since Election Day have seen much of the Republican Party, the party of Abraham Lincoln, turn fully against American democracy.

Trumpís allies and abettors, including more than 100 lawmakers and 18 Republican state attorneys general, tried to poison our political system in the service of a personality cult. Theirs is a veneration driven not by high ideals but by fear, resentment and a transparent desire to maintain power for its own sake.

1. I think that many in the "NEW" GOP would like to topple the US government and replace it

with their own. I have come to view many republicans, now, as domestic terrorists.

4. Yep, it's always the SOS with them. They seem to have hatred ingrained in them and do everything

the opposite of what was preached in the beginning. They use religion to cover up their hatred and evilness. Anyone tells me they've got religion all the red flags go up for me. I just do not trust them one bit. Much of the hatred in the world has religion directly apparent or in the background.

3. They have clearly stated they wish to secede from the US.

They also quite clearly do not value rule of law, democracy or the constitution.

I wish we could figure out a way to let them have their wish.
