    I know there used to be one because once upon a time I posted in it regularly as a loyal Republican, but I could find no evidence of it on the search function.

    I wanted to know, are there any people on this board who are still GOPers? I’m reading these reports from the GOP House Caucus meeting, and apparently 1/2 of the caucus just gave Taylor-Greene a standing ovation.




    Meanwhile they want to remove Liz Cheney from the leadership. I’m not a huge Cheney fan, but she’s got more balls than any of them.

    How can any semi-rational person ever vote for this disgraceful party again? The base is insane, and the elected members are either lunatics or cowards.

    This country desperately needs a sane center-right party, but I don’t even see how it’s possible at this moment. But one thing is certain, it can only happen with the destruction of the GOP.

    The Democratic Party is the sane center right party though.

    the republican party thread used to be the catch all thread for politics because there was like half a dozen of us non-republicans on the whole board

    simpler times

    obama was a muslim back then

    but also theres a long road ahead of the republican party continuing to radicalize as the insular media bubble they exist in nurtures it while the electoral quirks of our system don't even punish them for it

    i come and go on this, its better than the republicans who just retire and slink away into high paying lobbyist jobs

    is it self serving? sure, but it'd also be good for the country if this type of republican could get even a slight foothold as it's all trump all the way down currently. then again at some point these folks need to just leave the party, or stay in the party but caucus with the dems.

    I mean, I applaud his efforts. He and people like Mitt Romney are honorable.

    It’s worthless though. The base is more aligned with Taylor-Greene than him. And McCarthy and Scalise are pathetic hacks and cowards.

    We need a true leftist party. Dems are center-right. I firmly believe that the GOP would have to move middle if that happened.

    I think he’s a pretty solid guy. I don’t agree with him on everything and he’s definitely made some mistakes as you mentioned there, but from all accounts he seems to conscientious and the type of person that should be leading the right wing party in the country.

    The party is it’s currently constructed will die in 5-10 years, at least in terms of national power. Only so many white Boomers and GGs left, and even its younger white generation won’t have the numbers to compete.

    A truly limited federal government with a significantly reduced foreign footprint, full embrace of social and religious freedoms, and minimal economic regulation could possibly carve out a footprint, but whoever leads that charge in the ashes of the GOP’s end is going to have a hellacious task winning over enough diverse constituents to compete against the Democrats.

    gotta do a huge reform of our democracy for this to function, which by how its constructed and the inequitable division of power will never happen,

    isolationist, social conservatives, AND fiscal conservatives is basically stapling an unpopular path (isolationism) onto other non majoritarian positions.

    the GOP path forward, basically the only path, is social conservatism but with robust progressive economic policy. with limited but not isolationist foreign policy. you can build a diverse and large coalition in that lane.

    fiscal conservatism continues to be the single most toxic political position in the country, trumps worst approvals were while he was doing GOP orthodoxy of the last thirty years, lower than when his goons tried to over throw the government.
