Not at all. But break bread with Chamber of Commerce Republicans who think extremism and racism is bad for business. Meet with Christian Republicans who ended up there simply because of abortion. Did you know Hillary is a Methodist and has taught Sunday School?

Honest businessmen don't belong in the same party as Trump. Liberal Christians don't belong in the Republican Party, much less the Trump Abomination.

I guess it makes sense if her pastor was one of them ones that goes out and blesses bombs being loaded on the Tarmac.

You could also embrace a progressive platform of clearly articulated goals that would help Americans with their basic needs.
The current Republican Party is the chamber of commerce with the facade stripped away. Trump is what you get. He's the result of this two party rightward grope. You want more rightward grope PIA?

You cast all Republicans as identical monsters. That is naive, and prevents recruiting more liberal Republicans to join the anti-Trump effort. Just like every other Party, the GOP is a coalition of several different factions. Each has their own reasons for being there. But in the Trump era, maybe some of those reasons are not valid any longer.

You win elections by getting lots of people to vote for your party, not by making Party membership ideologically pure and excluding everybody who doesn't meet your standards.
