    Will the sane GOP ever come back? I wonder.
    Just as soon as journalism returns and all the agents of the smear factories yield to the return of journalism.

    The folks who make money off the hopes of desperate politicians and then control those pols who employ them.

    I hope not any faster than the German mid 20th century National Socialist Party it patterns itself after and worships.

    Unfortunately, “sane” has become a subjective term in modern politics.

    Not equally between the 2 major parties.
    The GOP spends all it time accusing others of being what they have turned into......a party based on hate, closing it's tent flaps to anyone who won't rebroadcast the lies, hate and greed of it leader. A party endorsed by white supremacist and the KKK that endorses Putin and KJ Un and insults our allies!

    Where are the liberal and moderates of the GOP of yesteryear?
    They are unfit for the MasterRace of the current Trump GOP!

    They tell us 2 +2 =5 .....repeatedly and some dummies believe it.
    End their evil/insane strangle hold on our country at the voting booths on 11/6!!
    (take control of congress away from the GOP Nazis that rip children from their mother's arms and lie that it's the Dems fault.)

    We can do it collectively on 11/6!!!

    Undermining confidence in our elections by a hostile foreign power influencing those elections, or at least attempting to influence those elections.

    Yes, the US has been divided for a while. Right now, we're about as divided as we were back about 1968. That was the year of the Tet Offensive, I believe. At that time, the division was all internal, and was over a single issue: The "conflict" in Vietnam. Now, what is it over?

    We need the GOP of Goldwater and of Reagan. We don't need the GOP of Trump.

    Just answer yes or no. I think we can divide ourselves without any outside help.

    Yes

    The GOP alone is quite capable of dividing/destroying our country from within. (but they can do it faster with international criminal help.)
