That is why the Establishment has been getting the boot and ramping up to lose more power in the party...

The Democrats can have them back.

Actually it is a good time to ramp up a third party consisting of fiscally conservative yet socially liberal types. The far right can have their whack jobs, and the far left can have theirs.

Been patiently waiting for this party for some time now.

Are you saying the GOP supports the confederate flag? The last Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, did not support the confederate flag, and said it shouldn't have be allowed to be flown. But you probably never heard him say this. You probably only hear what a fringe minority of Republicans have to say. The fringe that supports your narrative.

That's just residual stink from when Donny was a Dem.

You are being sarcastic, right? Or, are you referring to urine?

And you will be voting for him.

If you are an atheist, meaning you do not believe in the existence of a supreme being, why would you be concerned about whether or not someone else believes in God or not. I don't care that you don't believe in God, why should you care if I do?
That's because you're Jewish and your religion doesn't proselytize. In other words, you mind your own business which is something everyone should do.

You must also either live in an alternative universe or you are not being candid
