It has become abundantly clear that of the two major parties, one is fighting to help people and cares about human life, and the other does not. The Republican Party under Trump has become the party of spite, racism, meanness, hatred, and indifference.
The Democrats are fighting for a comprehensive economic aid package to help every American recover from the effects of the pandemic. The Republicans are fighting it.
The Democrats are urging to continue masking in public until a substantial portion of the population is vaccinated, especially all the most at risk. The Republicans are rescinding mask orders and opening everything fully without a care in the world that the new variants are more contagious, potentially more deadly, and some can reinfect people who have previously had covid.
The Republicans are courting white supremacists, going so far as to Headline a conference white supremacist conference.

Democrats are trying to increase voter participation and reach minorities and disaffected groups. Republicans are trying to curtail access to voting and reduce voter participation, purely for political advantage. For them, less democracy is good.
Donald Trump resisted and undercut all efforts to limit the spread of covid19. His one good action was advocating a streamline to get vaccines faster. Which he then promptly weakened credibility by visibly trying to block safety measures for speed. Joe Biden has used the Defense Production Act to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine produced by a competitor to speed up access. He has advocated and still advocates masking in public, listens to rather than belittles science advisors like Dr. Fauci, and just moved teachers and child care workers to prioritize them for the vaccine.
The Republicans have supported and fostered crazy conspiracy theory ideas to create a culture that felt compelled to commit insurrection to stop democracy. And they continue to defend the lies that made the insurrection happen. They continue to stir up the crowd.
While advocating for Black Lives Matter and police accountability and rooting out systemic racism in law enforcement, Democrats have repudiated the violence of anti-police protestors and called for peaceful protest through civil disobedience, but not riots and property destruction and looting. Those have been condemned.
I’m sure there are more things that I could list, but the above makes the case. It’s time for the Republican Party to be disbanded. Any reasonable conservative should abandon the party and start a new one. Yes, you will lose power for a while, but you will help improve the country by changing the landscape and the discourse for the better. In the end, true conservatism could make a comeback not hampered by the need to feed a shrinking demographic of white supremacists and conspiracy junkies.
