What the LGBTQ party needs is to be allied with the Democrats. It shouldn’t be a permanent alliance, but I can’t see the Republicans being liberal enough (even in the distant future). In truth, the Republicans, as they’re currently constituted, may not survive Trump, and I can’t see the LGBTQ party being strong enough to stand on its own any time soon. The alliance is the only viable first step. We’ll have to see what becomes of the burned out Republicans… RobtheElder
I think it’s great he is bringing down the GOP.
and that is the best summary of their plan
I might have to copy and paste that to all the
Log Cabin Republicans, run of the mill American net trolls and the russian trolls who seek to gaslight, Godbots or Glandbots, trolls are trolls with pretty much the same talking points
that North American Pale Male Syndrome, eh?

I like a lot of what you say – and I absolutely respect the individual you say that you are. But of course I have reservations about some of your opinions – and the destruction of the GOP is one of the worst ones. Our (USA) problems are the direct result of the influence and power that extremes of both political parties have acquired. Between then – it is difficult to believe that they represent more than about 30% of the population of the USA – and the destruction of either one merely awards unlimited power to the other. We simply MUST have a system in which the kooks in one party neutralizes the kooks in the other. (As an outside observer – you seem to see just how kooky things have got during the past century?)
Thank you and yes, you do have a point about party collapse.
the Canada example of the post NAFTA election end of the Progressive Conservative Party which gave rise to the Alberta Reform party’s takeover into the … I can’t remember their current party name, they had originally filed as the Canadian Conservative Reform Alliance Party until it was mocked in the media as C-CRAP
the problem is the that republican party is so extreme in and of itself, I used to think of the USA Democrats as being right of Canada’s conservatives.
Republicans weren’t always like they are now. And Conservative used to mean thoughtful, level-headed, and faithful to the Constitution. (Actually a little bit boring and predictable.) I’m not sure when they became such war-mongers, as kooky as the liberals, and ran completely off the rails. I guess it must have been while I was out of the country for 20 years.
there used to be at least a pretense of pretending to not be psychopathic in politics
But the 1980s with Reagan was the start of the end, the KKK moved into the republican party, and the trickle down talking points began, then under Bush the Elder, the phrase “politically correct” and family values became their norm, Bush the Lesser did Desert Stormed Operation Manhood do do what Daddy Didn’t and now, the republicans have President Reality TV Host.

If Sen Joe McCarthy could spin his in grave we’d have perpetual motion generation
Charming Perception. But I don’t get the Sen. McCarthy metaphor. He was a rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth conservative shit-stirrer. I think he would be bursting at the chest with admiration for Trump.
McCarthy was the 1950s Russian Hunting Senator who took down Hollywood and trade unions.McCarthy was not a good guy by any stretch, but his worse fears came true given the current presidential climate.
Trump asked Russia for help during the campaign, and he continues to bash the American federal government agencies that he expects to protect him?
and its then there’s the energy part of the joke, since wave and solar should have already replaced fossil fuels of all the extraction types.
solar is free and can be collected and waves are as close to perpetual energy too, let the planet do the work, eh
what part of public trust and public office is unclear that it means all of the public?
“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.”
people doing their own self interest please no one but themselves
while this current trend of toughing at the public expense while demanding the public admire the conduct renders all of last century’s cliches meaningless, save one
