The snake who wrote an 'anonymous' crybaby book from inside the Trump administration is leading 100+ has-beens of the GOPe variety; they all threaten to quit the Party unless Trump is dumped or something.
Is there a downside to their departure?
...Backers of the reform group include former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge, former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman, George W. Bush-era Transportation Secretary Mary Peters. ...Also involved are former House members Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, Barbara Comstock of Virginia, Reid Ribble of Wisconsin, and Mickey Edwards of Oklahoma.
Former CIA agent Evan McMullin who ran for president as an independent candidate in 2016, is also involved. ...
(We had to go to Wiki to find out who Ribble was. He was that effective!)
In the next yawner/news release, we'll hear that Sykes has joined the group. Membership may leap to as high as 150 in the next 2 years! Oh, my.
Let's remind ourselves of what these has-beens reject:
...So, what is this Trumpism that Americans chose over what the Democrats are offering?
Bring jobs and industries back to America. End our reliance on Communist China and build American supply chains instead of “global supply chains.” Buy American and hire American....
Forget free-trade dogma—defend American workers and businesses against the predations of a global corporate oligarchy. Do what’s good for American citizens rather than what’s good for “the global economy.”
America’s voters believe in countries and national sovereignty, not in submission to the alphabet soup of transnational authorities such as the WTO, WHO, G20, OECD, and so on.
They chose to restrict immigration to end the downward pressure on American wages.
They believe in rule by elected representatives rather than by a permanent state bureaucracy and judges accountable to no one.
They chose to end the military adventurism of endless wars that drains our blood and treasure and destroys tradition and cultures here and abroad. Make our allies pay their fair share for their defense. They recognized “America’s leadership role in the world” is fancy talk for making America the “policeman of the world,” and said, “No thanks.”
They know we must rebuild America rather than embark on nation-building projects around the world.
They feel in their gut we must break up the monopolies that control our media, technology, and economy and have an undue influence over our society and government.
They rejected the neo-Marxist ideology of race and gender identity and stood up for American national identity, Western civilization, Judeo-Christian culture, and traditional values of God, personal responsibility, and inalienable rights such as freedom of speech granted by our Creator, not the government....
I'll stick with Trumpism. The others may take the hindmost.
