re: #123 Old Liberal

I think everyone can benefit by stepping back and thinking about what a Republican was like in the 1960s. Rockefeller Dirksen. They thought Goldwater was a nut, in fact the whole country thought he was a nut. We may “always have conservatives” but there isn’t a single one now who is not a fucking reactionary either for real or for the votes. Not that it matters in the real world whether I accept it or not, if you are to the right of John Lindsey (look it up) you are part of the fucking problem and go fuck off. Climate change denying creationist pro christian anti atheist gun humping gay hating immigrant bashing minority demonizing forced pregnancy anti poverty helping tax slashing school privatizing anti-unión and I’m gonna forgive? You show me where in that list any of them are “Redeemed”. The party of Cheney Nixon Bush Reagan. Redemption my ass. This “conservative” shit is exactly why the country is a joke, education a disaster, we make war, let people get sick and die. Redemption? Fuck that.

I don’t disagree with your take. I’m just saying I know there’s gonna be a post-Trump right and if it’s going to exist, I’d rather it be with people who have been critical of Trump rather than kiss his ass. I would love for the Rockefeller Republicans to make a comeback but they’re gone. It’s not about redemption for me. I’m not inviting these people to dinner or to help shape my ideology. I just want an opposition post Trump that acknowledges that Trump was a disaster for the country. We can hit them over the head on policy too.
