There Is No Republican Party Anymore

The Wyoming Republican Party will no longer recognize Liz Cheney as a member of the GOP in its second formal rebuke for her criticism of former President Donald Trump.

It doesn't matter what else Cheney stands for, or what policies she opposes or supports, The only criteria as to whether or not she is a Republican is whether or not she is sufficiently loyal to Commandante Bone Spurs. If the sole litmus test for being a Republican is fealty to Sir Donald of Hamberders, then it's not a political party. It's a cult of personality.

So, as of now, you can be an Independent, a Democrat or a Trump-Cultist.

The thing is, the Republican party no longer cares about governing, and Ms. Cheney is a prime example: she voted with Fergus more reliably than Gosar, Gaetz, or at least most of the crazier-than-thou Republicans who are still in good standing with the party. But policy and governance aren't the currency of the GOP any more, media attention and the willingness to transgress on Fergus' behalf are.

I could make snark....but it's past all that. We are steaming into a field of icebergs. The GOP wants ever more steam and to place more icebergs in the path of our ship of state. Meanwhile, it is insuring that the next election will be won by a tyrannical, bigoted and hating minority. Like the Bolsheviks, they will steamroll the Mensheviks and bring a reign of darkness of America. Because they couldn't win by the rules, by the merits (of any) of their party, they have torn up the rules. They have packed the judiciary, soon the legislatures as well.

Liz chose to vote for and support things the RNC and their supporters do not stand for. She has been a RINO for a while.

I think she should have lost the support of the RNC a long time ago. She is more a
a conservative Democrat than a Republican.

In what way, other than she has opposed Trump’s coup attempt and she isn’t kissing his ass?

B, the Once Grand now so-Old party is more of a cosplay convention with contests to see:
> who can be the most bugshit off-the-wall
> who can be the most violently aggressive without being arrested (a qualification soon to go out the window at the next insurrection
> who can dream up the wildest conspiracies and present them with a straight face
> who has a room temperature IQ
the last two are currently held by Lauren Boebert, witness:

This is a performative party, no statemen or people of principle need apply. You know like Lincoln or Eisenhower? Hell, Nixon is starting to look good, along with Romney and Cheney...and therefore at risk.

That you justify that clown show makes you one too and evokes incredulity here....that you could believe this horse puckey and campaign for it. Stand on a street corner and tell people about the End of the World and you'll get more respect.

Sorry man, but really! Cage your gyro, it's tumbled and giving you nonsense. Go back to known facts and re-align your reality.

So true. Liz, foul as she is, voted for the USA and not for nazi treason so she is cast out of the party. Despite her record being sterlingly Trumpite. That's because the party is a personality cult and has no policies to help the United States, only conspiracy with Putin's Russian dictatorship and 'whatever spews out of trump's anus-mouth'. See the official Republican 2020 platform. No policies there, just a trump cult worship. Republicans are so over any action to help US citizens. It's just hatred all the way down. And 35-45% of your neighbors want this orange urinal cake back in power. USA, fuck yea.

Beware the rise of "reasonable", "responsible", republicans. I can easily envision a Pence/Cheney run as the Heroes Who Defied Drumpf uck, refusing its bidding.

Do not discount Darth's Daughter and the Deep State.

I'm a Democrat. It is not perfect, but it is better than licking these trump boots and worshipping a golden calf.
