Personally, Ive thrown up my hands in despair at the debased state of the GOP. I dont want to be identified with the party of the child-snatchers. But I respect principled conservatives who are willing to stay and fight to reclaim a once-great party that freed the slaves and helped to win the Cold War. What I cant respect are head-in-the-sand conservatives who continue to support the GOP by pretending that nothing has changed.
They act, these political ostriches, as if this were still the party of Ronald Reagan and John McCain rather than of Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller and therefore they cling to the illusion that supporting Republican candidates will advance their avowed views. Wrong. The current GOP still has a few resemblances to the party of old it still cuts taxes and supports conservative judges. But a vote for the GOP in November is also a vote for egregious obstruction of justice, rampant conflicts of interest, the demonization of minorities, the debasement of political discourse, the alienation of Americas allies, the end of free trade and the appeasement of dictators.
That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives, both current and former Republicans, in rooting for a Democratic takeover of both houses in November. Like postwar Germany and Japan, the Republican Party must first be destroyed before it can be rebuilt.

Guess he was never a GOPer..just a Rino
Pure unadulterated insanity.
What an idiot. I hope he realizes nobody will forget this.
Seriously is this guy in a Pot Legal State? Oye Vey....
An armchair warmonger like Max Boot, with no one to listen to his warmongering, is about as useful as a retired stud horse.
I am socially liberal: I am pro-LGBTQ rights, pro-abortion rights, pro-immigration - Max Boot 2017
I am not buying it. Maybe this dude is one of those, who would call Rush Limbaugh and say, I am a registered Republican, but.........
I think it’s safe to say, based on where the Democrats are, that Max Boot and George Will are openly Marxist, and wish for the destruction of the immigration service and the elevation of judges who subvert the constitution.
With a #WalkAway movement going full bore on Twitter (which will not acknowledge it is trending) this is what the Washington Post chooses to feature?!
Root all you want you beltway asshole.
Your 'root' don't mean diddly-squat in Western PA, Ohio, Indiana, the Dakotas, WV, MI, MO, WI, MN and many other rust belt states.
Dead giveaway, right off the bat, first sentence: Child Snatchers. Never was a Republican.
>>That is why I join Will and other principled conservatives
He writes this as if George Will is a conservative.
Oh, the “principled” modifier must be used here in the sense of “not”.
Mitt, is that you?
Isn’t Maxi a Russian by birth?
Max somehow I doubt you have any thoughts on the Democrats supporting the selling of baby parts.
Another Cheap Labor Express propagandist.
The New World Order that GHW Bush promised them is collapsing in front of their eyes and they can’t stand it.
