Christine Todd Whitman—Miles Taylor—Max Boot.
Former New Jersey Governor–Security expert in the George W. Bush and Donald Trump Administrations–Conservative Writer and Historian.
The first two in the NY Times, and the last one in the Washington Post, made clear their intentions for the future.
These are three Republicans who would define themselves as conservatives, along with many others, who have come to the smart conclusion that the Donald Trump dominated Republican Party in Congress and the states MUST be defeated soundly in 2022 as part of a plan to expunge the Fascist, authoritarian nature of a major political party.
So they and others have dedicated themselves to voting Democratic in the upcoming elections, not because they necessarily agree on all matters with Democrats, but simply because it is the only alternative to excise the cancer of Donald Trump and his minions.
This is not a laughing matter, as American democracy and the rule of law is at stake, and only a sound defeat of the evil and dangerous Trump control of the GOP can save the day.
As this author and blogger has stated in the past five years, the Republican Party may need to be put in the dustbin of history, and a new, responsible, and reasonable conservative alternative to the Democrats needs to be created from scratch, a little like the birth of the Republican party in the death throes of the Whig Party in the 1850s.
As the Donald Trump impeachment trial begins, it is clear that a true conservative would support his removal from the Oval Office on the basis of his violation of the separation of power and the rule of law.
The list is long, including, among others the following 28 in no special order:
Susan Del Percio
The Lincoln Project and Republicans for the Rule Of Law are two Republican and Conservative anti Trump groups which have formed, and want Donald Trump held accountable on the eve of his impeachment by the House of Representatives.
The Lincoln Project Super PAC founders are George Conway (husband of Trump aide Kellyanne Conway), Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson.
The Republicans for the Rule Of Law is headed by Bill Kristol, and many conservatives have bitterly denounced Trump for years, including Jennifer Rubin, Max Boot, and George Will.
It is time for former Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman to denounce Trump, joining John Kasich, former Ohio Governor in that direction.
Former Florida Congressman David Jolly has been a major personality working against Trump on MSNBC commentary.
The only hope for the Republican Party future is to start the fight to redirect the party away from the cancer of Donald Trump!
Conservatives and the conservative journals of opinion are generally deeply alarmed by the Presidential candidacy of Donald Trump, and many say that under no circumstances will they endorse or back Trump in any way, fashion, or form.
This includes, among others, the following:
THE NATIONAL REVIEW
THE WEEKLY STANDARD
This is far from a complete list, but the numbers are growing daily.
They see Trump destroying the conservative movement for a generation or more, and are determined to take him down, even though they have no clear alternative to vote for.
