    Default This message is aimed at sane Republicans

    Polls indicate many Republicans supported the Covid relief bill. Many support the proposed infrastructure bill, and many support the voting rights bill.

    The only solid Republican opposition comes from Republicans in congress.

    This tells me that a fair number of Republicans long for their dad's GOP.

    Those Republicans who support Biden's efforts have the ability to get their dad's GOP back. VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS IN EVERY RACE IN EVERY STATE FOR EVERY OFFICE. At least for one election.

    If you are a lifelong Republican, but support the right of legal voters, want to see our infrastructure improved, etc. you have to vote Republicans who oppose all this out of office.

    OK.

    If anyone needed any further proof that the Republican Party is a seditious criminal cabal, out to destroy the United States' government, there it is.

    If you support the Republican Party, you are a traitor to the Constitution.

    It really is just that simple.

    Most "sane Republicans" have started to identify as "Independent." Part of why the approval level among Reps for this or that awful thing is higher than ever is that in polling, Republicans have shrunk to about 25% of the population. The ones who can't stomach neo-fascism have quit.

    Biden approval rating at 60%.
    People who identify as Dems are increasing.
    People who identify as GOP are declining.
    Good news for the midterms.

    Grind the Republican Party into a paste and spread it out 3 mils thick to dry.

    Can't happen soon enough.

    I have an old friend who's been a Republican his entire life. He did not vote for Trump, but has voted for down ballot Republicans.

    He doesn't think he'll do that next election.

    He's beginning to think he needs to vote for democrats across the board.

    I hope he continues to think that way, and I hope he's a lot of company.

    The GOP has been taken over by Trumpism, and as long as they get re-elected, this will continue.

    My old friend is a sane Republican. Nicholle Wallace is still a Republican, as is Michael Steele.

    My hope is that many, like my old friend, are coming around to the need to vote for Democrats in order to unelect as many current in office Republicans as they can.

    The only thing, IMO, that will impact Republicans in congress is losing seats. If the majority of voters support Biden's agenda, we need to convince them to vote for democrats, as it is the Republicans in office who will prevent that agenda from moving forward.

    It appears, by polls, that a majority of registers Republicans support Biden's agenda. If they vote for democrats, along with democrats voting for democrats, we'll have strong democratic majorities, and those Republican senators still there may re-think their positions if they see colleagues being sent home.

    This can also overcome the voter suppression laws.

    But it's up to those Republicans who think as my friend does.

    Michael Steele has been lying to himself, and us, that the Trumpers would leave the Republican Party.

    Its damn clear that there’s more room for racist trash like Gosar, Greene, Boebert than there is for people who’ll criticize Trump in the Republican Party, and that’s not a sane party.

    They keep telling you who they are. Listen.

    Which means that the Republicans getting nominated are going to get more extreme. This is bad short term, but good long. The further towards Fascism they go, the less people will vote for them. It may take a few cycles though.
