I don't think any of my favorites are unadulterated goodness and light. All are human. But, Republicans have been a disaster for over 50 years. Democrats, while having their own problems (especially in the 1970s), never held a candle to the corruption of the GOP. I think the fundamental issue, as this thread notes, is that, at bottom, their driving philosophy is contrary to good governance. It has been getting worse and worse since Reagan, until we finally got Trump, but he is a man OF his time... or the GOP's time. It is time to allow the GOP to fade into irrelevancy, like the Whigs before them.
