Discussion of the recent unfolding of history.

watching the GOP collapse in real time

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Sun Jan 17, 2021 8:50 pm

it is clear that we have two sides of the GOP, the insane side,
the radical right that tried to overthrow the government this last
week, and the more traditional side of the GOP.....

the more traditional side of the GOP has been driven out of the party....
the moderates and the small government/less taxes side of the GOP,
has been driven out of the party... and replaced by those in Qnon
and insurrectionists.......

as over 70% of republicans still cling to IQ45, the party is still
held by the radical right...but as their leaders wind up in prison
for their coup attempt, it may change, but I doubt it....

the GOP cannot withstand being divided up into two separate camps as
the GOP is and has been for quite a while, the minority party....

the Democrats is the party that will increase because of basic
demographics...as the country becomes younger, more brown or black,
as people become horrified by the radical right attempt to overthrow the
government.... I believe I saw an article from Fla, that says over a thousand
people in just a few days after the coup attempt, change party affiliation from
republican to democrat or independent... in just a few days.....

the radicalism of the right is scaring people into joining the democrats....

and clowns like UR and obser is helping in that defection.....

their extreme radicalism is forcing people into choosing extremism, the GOP or
going to the Dems or becoming independent....

this end result of this extremism will force the GOP to become two
parties..... the more moderate party of small government, less taxes
and the far more extreme party of qnon and IQ45 followers....

this split will allow dem's to hold onto government for a generation...

we will hold the house and senate and presidency for decades because
the right wing will have two small parties competing for votes and
any divide like this, will doom the republicans to obscurity for decades.....

I suggest that the GOP will remain strong in the south and parts of the west,
South Dakota for example, but frankly who cares if the GOP is strong in states
with so few people... it will mean nothing.... states like South Dakota and
Wyoming have so few people it doesn't matter... for example Wyoming has
578,759 people, whereas Oakland Ca, has roughly 450,000 people, and it isn't even
close to the biggest population in the Bay area...the bay area alone has more population
then a lot of these small states put together....the Bay area has over 7.5 million people...

so if you want to belong to a small obscure political party, please join the GOP,
which one, hay, that is up to you... the violent party that tried to overthrow the
government or the small government/no taxes party.. which has very few followers
right now.....

I for one, have no problem with the complete death spiral of the GOP....
it has been a domestic terrorism party for years and watching it implode
gives me great pleasure....... but it will be back... in a few decades...

i dunno if there's really a traditional side left. most of the quiet ones are far right and just hiding it. i mean are we counting liz cheney as traditional now?

K: she is in fact the new leader of the "traditional" party and I expect to
see her to be the GOP presidential candidate in 2024... of course the IQ45 party will
offer up Ivanka as a choice... and thus, Harris will win because the two GOP
candidates will split the GOP votes... a win-win for America as far as I am concerned...

sounds great, but i think the speed at which things are happening lately make it nearly impossible to predict what will be the case that far into the future.

tonight the GOP has chosen...to be the party of Q instead of the traditional
party of conservatives...by allowing the Q-crazy Marjore Talylor green or otherwise now
know as MTG to remain in her committees seat...

to those of us old enough to remember the political party of
the GOP remember the party was all about less taxes and less government
and in favor of the culture war... but today, that is all gone...
the GOP is now the party of conspiracies and Q... Q, BTW
is likely a paid Russian asset who will continue to work to destroy
America from the inside.. kinda like the GOP, anyway....

the GOP is no longer about personal responsibility or accountability,
although to be fair the GOP hasn't been about personal responsibility since
the Raygun years....and it certainly isn't about maintaining fiscal responsibility...
since every president including Raygun has blown up the deficit to a point where
we can't even pretend to be able to pay it off....

the GOP... the party of massive deficits and conspiracies...
how that for a bumper sticker near you?

from a democratic standpoint, I hope the GOP jumps behind MTG all the way....
we won't lose an election for decades if they make her the face of the party...

the GOP civil war is just beginning.. so stock up on that popcorn and
watch the next exciting episode of

"As the GOP collapse into being irrelevant"

I will be watching that for sure.....
with my huge bowl of popcorn....

same bat time,
same bat station...

There may evolve. Third, super positional party in the making, since the Republicans will be keen to shed their revolting anti Democratic persona, right now the are in the catch 22 crosshairs of hell if they desist from convicting Trump and he if the do. Someone needs a super victim right now, who will go down I. a vain glory of astounding proportions, and they are going to have to go after Trump for this role, otherwise the dogs wi chew him up.

He is not just another ex president, he is the larger then life failed apprentice, and he owns the Republican Party.

And if he plays his game as he has before, he is going down as a well lit hot burning potato..

Save Your popcorn to next week's auto-dafe.

going over some website responses and the best one I saw was this...

"over the next week, the GOP house members are going to do a lot of soul searching
trying to figure out what kind of party they have"

the very next commentator said this:

"while soul searching, the house members will discover that they don't have a soul"

Ouch...burn them GOP house members....
