Mid-Term Defections

It's usually a good sign for the party not in the majority when members of the opposing party start resigning and deciding to retire.  But, I wonder if this is a typical mid-term. 

Trump is celebrating, because he thinks he has won the war.  And, he may have.  The latest rat to leave the hopefully sinking ship is Jeff Flake. of Arizona.  Will Arizona voters turn around and vote Democratic in the election?  Or, will the GOP put up someone even worse than Flake, and will voters flock to him like they have other far right wing candidates? 

Will the Republican party split in half?  Or will the right wing wackos simply take over entirely and banish the few sensible members who are left. If so, where will the Moderates go?

I can't help but wonder why in the world the Republicans are allowing Trump to divide the party. I can only think of two possible reasons.  One, they are more afraid of Pence than they are of Trump. Or, Two, they are waiting until they are able to pass a bill that will get them the tax breaks for the rich that they want.

Stay tuned.

I hate to think we are all f**ked. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel we will see before, as the saying goes, the s**t hits the fan? I am fed up with wimpy hypocritical Republicans who won't call out trump.


we're fucked
