That sound we are hearing is the pitter-patter of little and not-so-little feet leaving the Republican Party. Many of the President George W. Bush administration are “leaving the party.” Why would they do that? The cult of Donald Trump has broken it nearly beyond repair.
They are disturbed that so many Republicans in office have stood silent, unwilling to actively and vocally separate themselves from Donald Trump. This was especially true after 45 invited his supporters to Washington DC, lit a fire under them, then sent them out to storm America’s capitol on January 6. Five people died in the insurrection, and two police officers took their own lives in the aftermath of the revolt to steal the 2020 presidential election.
The ex sent them to hang his Vice President Mike Pence and execute House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. These militia members were armed and hunting legislators on both sides of the aisle.
Many hope that the party can still be saved and unite around the GOP values of ” limited government, personal responsibility, free enterprise, and a strong national defense:” according to a Reuters exclusive:
‘These officials, some who served in the highest echelons of the Bush administration, said they had hoped that a Trump defeat would lead party leaders to move on from the former president and denounce his baseless claims that the November presidential election was stolen.’
The Republicans have three alternatives. They can end their ties with the party, let their membership lapse, or register as Independents. A fourth and not unusual option has been to switch to the Democrat’s Party.
Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence during the Bush administration commented:
‘The Republican Party as I knew it no longer exists. I’d call it the cult of Trump.’
Kristopher Purcell was with the Bush White House’s Communications Office for six years. He noted that between 60 and 70 former officials in Bush’s administration decided to abandon the Republican Party. He said:
‘The number is growing every day.’
The Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said:
‘We’re having a little bit of a spat right now. But we are going to come together. We have to.’
Former Treasurer of the U.S. under Bush, Rosario Marin told Reuters:
“If it continues to be the party of Trump, many of us are not going back. Unless the Senate convicts him, and rids themselves of the Trump cancer, many of us will not be going back to vote for Republican leaders.’
A longtime member of the Republican Party, who served in administrations including those of former presidents Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, Suzy DeFrancis said:
‘I totally understand why people are frustrated and want to leave the party. I’ve had that feeling for 4 years.’
A first-time Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) supports QAnon as does another new Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA). Purcell said. They believe Democratic leaders are in a secret Satan-worshipping pedophilic cult.
‘We have QAnon members of Congress. It’s appalling.’
