Conservatives sure did screw the pooch by selecting Trump as POTUS. The US is screwed, the Kurds are screwed, and the World is screwed.
If Conservatives never gain political power again - it will be too soon.
We liberals and Democrats NEED good sane Republicans and conservatives, to keep US honest, and to keep US from turning too weird.
But the same goes for vice versa. Conservatives must learn to accept liberals as having valid and honest values even if they don't always agree with them. By the same token, good liberals are what keeps conservatives from turning into what the Republican Party is today.
It's called "a healthy and balanced mix" and it requires both sides to accept the other, and to grant the other side the basic dignity deserved by "the loyal opposition". Arlo Guthrie became a registered Republican after 2004, but by 2012 he had already left the party.
His original reason for joining?
"We already had enough good Democrats. Someone needs to be the loyal opposition."
But if you can chase out an Arlo Guthrie, that's one thing.
A lot of perfectly normal conservatives won't even bat an eye at that but when people like Colin Powell are saying it, perhaps you should listen. When people like Rex Tillerson are saying it, perhaps you should listen.
When Fox News is saying it, perhaps you* should listen.(*you meaning folks in the Party of Trump)Someone is going to have to force the Trumpers to face the bad news sooner or later:
Your guy Trump is going down, you picked a very bad person as a candidate, he is very bad for you as well as us. He is bad for the country as a whole, he is bad for the entire world as a whole.
He's just really bad, awful isn't a strong enough word.
Trump is a monster, and he must go.
And it's not because he's a Republican either, and it's not so Dems get to win, it's much worse than that.
When you hear Democrats sounding wistful about the good old days when Bush 43 was President, that should tell you something.
