What we are seeing in the early months of the GOP as majority party is a mean-spirited, racist, and hateful group of Senators and House members, many from the South that has been the Mother Ship of this other America, the America of a past where whites were on top, permanently. That is changing. The GOP is fighting back but they will lose, even if they score a few victories.
The GOP is entering into its death throes, and while it will take some years for the nation to see what it means for racism and religious bigotry to have its innings, it will prove to be the last Hurrah. Fortunately Trump will fail and be revealed for what he is...totally unprepared to lead us into the future. And he will help us see that this is true for the GOP being strangled by a Southern reaction. Senators Heller, Mukorski, are the GOP's future.
