There’s been a fascinating development in the political wilderness. A number of dissident (ex?) Republicans are banding together to oppose the GOP’s domination by Donald Trump, a.k.a., the Former Guy.
What he has done to us.
If you’re interested, the group has collectively authored an op-ed on the Washington Post webpage. You can see it here: “The GOP has lost its way. Fellow Americans, join our new alliance,” by Charlie Dent, Mary Peters, Denver Riggleman, Michael Steele, and Christine Todd Whitman, The Washington Post, May 13, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. CDT, https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/05/13/new-gop-alliance-dent-peters-riggleman-steele-whitman/.
The group’s website, meanwhile, is here: A Call For American Renewal, https://www.acallforamericanrenewal.com/
I know of some of the people involved in this effort, and I admire a couple of them — for instance Max Boot, a columnist and historian of some note. (I don’t agree with much of what he says, but he says it very, very well, and with much thought beforehand.)
Anyway, this is extremely interesting. Of course, it may all come to naught, but I am guessing that the organization will be important. It could easily lead to a new Center Right party which challenges, and maybe replaces, the Republican Party.
But let’s all watch future developments closely. I’m sure that whatever happens, the GOP is in for stormy weather.
Onward and upward.
