Ready for the ‘old’ Republican party
I believe having at least two major parties capable of debating issues is important for a healthy democracy. If only we still had that.
The Republican party of today appears to have veered off the QAnon cliff with the election of Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO).
Putting aside Taylor Greene’s public support of assassinations (see how nice I am?), I would be happy to see a Republican party not populated with people who have left the world of reality and, to pick one of many examples, who are convinced that the fires in California have been started with lasers from space — whether controlled by Jews or not. NOt that there’s any problem with that. You’ve lost me as soon as you say ‘lasers from space’. I don’t even need to hear what they’ve been supposedly used for. Or who by. I’m already gone.
And the suggestion that world leaders are part of a ring of cannibalistic pedophiles would seal the deal. Well, all I’d need was either pedophiles or cannibals — not both — to immediately discount the claim. Although I really don’t need a second reason to bolt.
As a human, I am not capable of using reason fully and totally all the time — just like everyone else. Nevertheless, I continue to live in the world of reality, just as I always have. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t. If something sounds far-fetched and insane, it probably is.
Ms. Greene thinks the Republican party leadership is composed of weak losers. Fine. Let her start her own party. I want the old Republican party back. Our country needs them. Badly.
