Same here. The Republicans better hope that their fond dreams of that mythical “conservative hispanic voting bloc” come true (which they won’t), because they have lost my vote forever, and I won’t hold my nose “for the sake of the nation” ever again, because I finally recognise that this nation is done, stick a fork in it, anyway.

Black republicans don’t draw the black vote and hispanic republicans won’t fair any better.

“because they have lost my vote forever, “

yes, me too. They are insane if they think they will ever win again without The Tea Party and/or Libertarians or just plan conservatives who never identified with a particular party.

I’m thinking the same. All those times of getting to the polls, even in the primaries, because “my vote could make a difference”... ... makes one feel like a schmuck, eh?

To paraphrase Hillary: “what difference does it make?”

Since the election, there have been the whispers in the wind that the Republican party was finished — while others claimed that no “third party” could ever supersede it.

Think back twenty-plus years ago to when the Berlin Wall came tumbling down. I recall talking heads of that time saying, that even though the wall was gone, it would be years and years before the “two Germanys” would re-unite. Well, only a year or so later, it was “one Germany” again. Certain “historical waves”, once they get rolling, grow beyond control, assume a life of their own.

Told you that to tell you this:
In the few short months since the election, the Republican party is collapsing on itself at a rate faster than the Berlin Wall was torn down. If it continues to self-destruct, something will have to rise up to replace it. This could happen more quickly than anyone could have foreseen or predicted.

I’m wondering if there will still -be- a “Republican Party” by 2022?

Nope. We’re back to the early 20th. century where immigrants powering urban machine politics kept the Dimocrats on top until Reagan.
