Is The GOP Done? Or The DNC?

Let’s take a break from the pandemic bad news just for a moment or two…..

This pandemic has shown just how out of touch the GOP is with the rest of America……it was bad enough that idiots in the GOP like Nunes, Meadows, Gantz and Trump have turned the GOP into the biggest joke in political humor circles.

And now the GOP is leading the charge for the worse responses to this pandemic on record……

I wrote back in 2017 that I thought the GOP was on the downhill slide……https://lobotero.com/2017/05/11/is-conservatism-dying/

I have seen nothing since that post to make me alter my opinion of the GOP…..in fact they have gotten worse and more out of touch since my post.

In that world, conservatism could survive failures, ranging from moral to political to strategic, because as a movement it had a standing superior to and somewhat independent of any of particular actor.

No longer. It’s Trump, all the way down.

We have now reached the terminus of craven loyalty and pathetic apologetics. I don’t see how either the political institution of the Republican party or the intellectual movement of conservatism recovers from what we have seen over the last three years—but especially the last three months.

And so we will need to think anew, and to act anew.

Trump Has Broken the Republican Party—and Conservatism—for Good

Even staunch GOPers from the Tea Party no longer see a future for the GOP without some change and the growth of a spine……

former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) predicted that the Republican Party will collapse after the 2020 presidential election — whether President Donald Trump wins or loses.

Walsh, a conservative congressman originally elected during the 2010 tea party wave, has been one of the president’s most vocal critics from the right. After mounting an ill-fated primary challenge to attempt to deny Trump the nomination for a second term, he has abandoned the GOP.

(Raw Story)

If Donald Trump wins in November, another political party will be born in December. If Donald Trump loses in November, another political party will be born in December. The Republican Party is done. It’s over. It’s breaking up. No matter what. And that’s a good thing.
Let’s not be too hasty on the death of the GOP….the DNC is hanging on for dear life as well in my opinion…..the rift that has been growing between the progressives and the centrist is slowly ending the DNC’s grip on democratic politics.
 
Bernie has called for a coming together to fix the party and win elections…..does that mean to abandon principles for a quick and easy win?
 
I believe this interview with Cornell West says it all…..
 
In the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory over Hillary Clinton, some progressives are now pushing a shake-up of the Democratic Party’s leadership in efforts to reform the party. But Cornel West says he doubts the Democratic Party can be reformed. During the Democratic primary, West endorsed Bernie Sanders. Sanders later picked him to serve on the Democratic platform committee. After Hillary Clinton won the nomination, West made headlines when he endorsed Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein. For more, we speak with West about the Democratic Party and what organizing looks like in the wake of the election.
 
I cannot see me ever supporting what the Democratic Party has become…..it must learn the art of politics for it sucks at it nowadays.

  1. Given the two current leaders of both parties, as in Trump and Biden, I really cannot tell them apart, except for the Twitter ranting. At one time, you might have chosen the lesser of two evils, but I can’t see that the same choice exists in 2020.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. They are not “Done” because they are sustained by demonic forces and devils cannot be killed. They will be with us in one form or another for centuries more to come unless the country goes down the tubes and then they will shape shift and come back as something else to torment whatever part of Mankind survives.

  3. I can honestly say I have never voted for a Republican in my life and never plan on it. I have voted for Democrats but that gets more and more difficult each year and I’m looking to vote for Gloria La Riva and Leonard Peltier for President this year. I’ll vote Dem down-ballot.

    1. I have not voted for a winner since Carter…..this year I am still looking….I would vote GOP if they were the party of 1956. chuq
