My hope is that once Biden is sworn in, Trump throws a temper tantrum over the GOP leaders working with Biden and splits off to create a new party and kneecaps the GOP for years to come. Hopefully a GOP that's true to their stated principals can grow out of the ashes.

It is somewhat pleasing to see the GOP implode. Unfortunately, something much less palatable may come from it. What happened to the party of Ike?
I love 'stop the steal' being screeched by people trying to circumvent the will of the people (in terms of raw vote or EC) - it's as if they really have zero self-awareness. Right wingers are easily the biggest triggered snowflakes in society.

My wife and I had an interesting conversation recently where she opined that we should stop voting for people but instead vote for ideals. The polls on things such as Medicare for all, voting rights, gay marriage for example all poll WAY above their weight compared to a D/R split in any given election, so maybe we’d do better off forgetting about any figureheads that we supposedly entrust to implement our public policy.
Still don’t think it would work, but it’s an interesting idea. Especially as the GOP is quickly becoming the party of Trump instead of the party of fiscal conservatism, “Christian values” or whatever nonsense they tell themselves so they can sleep at night.

@stuckmtb Crap, you mean the candidate I have to choose doesn't represent my ideals? Yea, it's frustrating seeing all those things polling popular but you hear politicians on "both" sides saying that they are just fantasies. I think part of the problem is the system we have in place to hold politicians accountable. Ranked choice voting and term limits can't come fast enough. Though again making those in power restrict their own power is asking a lot.

@mastermario Doubtful. They just keep getting crazier and people eat it up.
Dems will find a way to fight amongst themselves and get nothing done, don't worry.
