Why should we care about the Republican Party when it’s nothing more than a collection of racists and conspiracy mongers? A fair number of Never Trumpers see the party as something that is detested and many think it is now time to look to the Democrats. People associated with the Bulwark are starting to believe that maybe it’s time for former Republicans to become the conservative wing of the Democrats or at the very least work more closely with President Biden. What if leaving the party and movement might make one feel well but the decision is bad for democracy?
