PS re Horatius @ the Bridge: To survive and prosper, the Republican Party must become relevant again, in the context of the United Stated and the World. This requires that its members never again nominate someone as bad as Donald Trump to the White House. In other word, the Party needs a spanking. Only then can it flourish and elect good leaders in our country. People like Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower. The party went through a blow-out with Barry Goldwater, regained its footing with Ronald Reagan, and then took a big step backwards with George A difficullt road lies ahead for the GOP but it can and should find a way.
Well said by both of you. Paula
