We are witness to a rare phenomenon. No, not an exploding star, but something similar. This is the Republican Party collapsing, destroying itself and We The Peeps have to work to save our country to make sure it doesn’t destroy America, too. The first thing to do is to learn to ignore trump. That’s right, ignore him. That’s the worse thing that can happen to him. Stop rising like a trout to a fly every time he tweets, or opens his sucker-shaped mouth with some insensitive, stupid remark. Yes, professional journalists have to pay attention somewhat, but even they are backing off and are looking for actual news events coming out of the White House.
The next thing we can do is vote for a Democrat or an independent in the midterm elections next year. The GOP has spent the last 30 years building a party on hate and bigotry. They have succeeded. They have no lofty philosophy or solid political values. Because of that, they can’t govern. The rational Republicans have been pushed aside, labeled as RINOs, so it might be impossible to find them on a candidate list, but if you find that you can only vote for a Republican because your father, his father, and his father before him were Republicans, do your research. Make sure your choice of GOP candidate is mentally stable. That in itself would be refreshing.
