Trump's only lasting legacy will be the destruction of the republican party.

Trump's supporters aren't actually interested in supporting a political party and all that it involves.  As soon as trump leaves the stage, his supporters will lose interest and drift away leaving the party smaller and weaker than ever.  Already disaffected former republicans are talking about forming a new conservative party but I don't think that will be necessary.  In order to win elections today, any party has to be able to appeal to enough independents to prevail.  It will be hard for trump's radical wing to appeal to enough voters to win enough to remain relevant.  Not only that but it takes serious money to mount winning campaigns and already we've seen massive defection of donors away from the repubicans.

People are going to talk. And it will not be shining times. Four years and even two, or one, will reveal things - bad things. Thank God this is America and we can't be put in chains for telling the truth. It will come and it will not be pretty.

Turns out being terminal Republicans doesn’t help. Lincoln Project individuals turning out to be grifters and one of them a sexual predator.

The good guys in the group leaving and look to be prepared to throw the rotten apples under the bus.

Thanks for the support, but leopards often have a tough time changing their spots.

Re: Trump's only lasting legacy will be the destruction of the republican party.


As I’ve said for a while - America knows.   

Republicans could no longer cover their lies before the last election - new lies were no longer working to anger America - it just served to anger America against Trump.   It took a lot - but America finally realized they were being lied to by Republicans - and it will be a long time before they forget.....

Re: Trump's only lasting legacy will be the destruction of the republican party.

I knew it was over for Trump, when people I knew that had never voted, stopped by during the summer when I had my Biden signs out, and were asking me how to get registered to vote.   There weren’t a lot.  But the fact that ANY of them reached out for information on how to vote in the November election, spoke volumes to me.

The people had had enough of Trump’s lies, how he conducted himself.   When I saw that....I knew Trump was done.   And all the flag waving and People driving around with Trump flags waving, were just making people angry.   It wasn’t uniting more with Trump.   

Trump’s magic didn’t work on everybody.   At least there were enough Americans sick of his sh-t, to send him and his porn star wife packing.  

America knows.   And Republicans love of God, guns, country, and victims isn’t going to work anymore.   And neither is the “family valuuuuuuues” claim that started many of the lies.    Guns have nothing to do with God, and being a human “right” - quite the opposite, the way I was brought up, as bad as it was.   

America knows......

News 'up here' has a story about a meeting of Republicans to discuss starting a new party for Republicans that do not want to have anything to do with your former presidents party.

There’s almost nowhere where going third party enhances anyone’s chances for election.

But the suburbs and educated white people will be increasingly out of the GQP’s grasp.

What I don’t know is what becomes of those previously disengaged millions who were attracted by the anger, cruelty and spectacle.

Re: The Lincoln project served it's purpose, trump's no longer president.

After trump's defeat, I couldn't see where the Lincoln Project had anywhere to go anyhow but remember, last year," if my enemy is your enemy, then ....".
