Republicans must:

  • To a man and woman acknowledge the elections were legitimate, Biden won fairly, and Donald Trump’s fantastical claims of election rigging were just that. They must acknowledge the voter fraud hoax they used as a predicate for their campaigning.
  • Those who incited the insurrection by backing these claims should resign. Cruz and Hawley have to go, for sure.
  • Donald Trump must be impeached with strong bi-partisan support. Removal, should it come now or next congress, same. Both parties must speak with one voice where he is concerned.
  • LEadership must ratchet way down the Rush Limbaification of their rhetoric. Stop using commie marxist socialist interchangably in response to virtually every policy proposal a Democratic politician makes (be adults, and stop with the dumb DEMOCRAT POL shit). Stop calling your voters “patriots” vs everyone else.
  • Republican voters themselves need to take a breath and instead of demanding we listen to ”74m of us” stop to think there were 81m who disagreed, we are Americans too, and we should have a say as well. The idea that the 74m are the single most important group of humans in the country demanding all of our oxygen is an idea that needs to be put to bed.
Notice none of these bullet points require accepting policies you don’t agree with, polticians you don’t wish to vote for, etc. But if your expression of peace and unity is simply demanding no accountablity for the GOP while still telling us it was a rigged election and we’re all commies, and George Soros, blah blah nope. Nope.

Elections have consequences.

Liberals had their own loud & rabid base long before "The Donald" came on to the presidential scene.

You can't get away with pretending that Democrats have not used vitriol to stir their own base, and still try to make an argument for them being the more civil party..

More conservative failure to grasp the concept of equivalency.

Can you give an example of what you say that is reasonably enough on the same scale as the runup to and the fact of the Capitol being swarmed by RW Trump supporters?

The fact that you’re still using whatajoutims after a stretch where the entire GOP was in on telling their base the election was stolen from them which led to a literal coup attempt is all anyone needs to see. Y’all have no interest in this country anymore. Zero.

You’re here saying the same shit they do. You don’t even care that your capital was attacked. You just want to complain about Black people.

We see all of you now.

Politicians on both sides of the isle got a serious wakeup call on Jan. 6th. That demonizing opponents with dishonest rhetoric can lead to a lot more than just cheap political points. It can put their own personal safety, as well as that of the entire nation, into serious jeopardy. They all need to take this lesson to heart and seriously dial back the whole "party over country" culture they've created.

How about we have a decent proper investigation of the claims of fraud first and if the investigation comes up with the result that fraud did change the election result there is another election?

If there is a proper, open, investigation with all claims of fraund fully looked at you will find that 99% of the Trump supporters will accept the result.

The only voter fraud investigation you should be asking for is the one looking into Trump trying to force GA to find votes for him. We all heard the tape.

Hilarious that Trump supporters suddenly want everyone to worry about their feelings.

Then why are you trying to derail this thread by attacking liberals when the subject is how to recover from Trump?

Why is it that none of the Senate Republicans, including Cruz and Hawley, did not demand said investigation two months ago? Why wait to demand said investigation in a forum where they knew it could never pass? Could it be they really didn't want an investigation? Why would that be?

How about looking into all of it?

Would you be OK with that?

If there was no pro Biden fraud what do you fear?

I don't know.

Trump was never liked by the old school Republican party as it is just as corrupt as the Democrat party.

Any outsider of a corrupt system is going to face a full attck from the system. Even when they are as flawed as Trump.

See? We have tape of Trump trying to rig the election and you think people still need to assure your feelings.

You would reject it immediately because it wouldn't show what you want it to.

Again with you, the problem isn't the process, it's the result.

You're already a science denier, ain't no evidence gonna convince you of nothing.

You strongly feel that Trump attempted to rig the election.

I strongly feel that theDNC has sucessfully rigged the election.

How about all such claims are fully, openly, investigated so that we can both understand the situation?

You are lying again.

The rigor of the process is everything.

The lying is squarely on your part.

State officials of both parties looked into allegations of Fraud.

60+ court cases lost.

There was a process, the claims of Trump and his traitorous mob are entirely fictional.

The fact that some on the so-called conservative side ignore dem 'vitriol' has never launched an insurrection invading the Capital Blg. surprises no one here... :rolleyes:

After 2016 there was plenty of dem vitriol but there were not 60 failed lawsuits, no constant parade of liars claiming (without any proof) of fraud, computer manipulation, suitcases of ballots and other crapfest shows.... :unsure:

The fact that some on the losing side this time don't understand proportion and think a cat is the same as a skunk because both have fur and a love of mice again surprises no one here... ✌
