I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog. Europeans and others are instead directed to my new blog with a new host. (See link in post below.)

Not Too Late to Abandon Trump

While certain writers on line currently say it is too late for the Republican Party to dump Trump (and absent a withdrawal by Herr Trump this would indeed be difficult), it is not to late for Republicans to disown him.  Of course, they may no longer be able to call themselves Republicans.  Why not work now to establish a new party?  It could be called many things, the New Conservative Party, for instance.  Or if they wanted to re-establish the broad-based Republican Party of Nixon, Goldwater, and Rockefeller, they could call it -- I don't know -- the Pachyderm Party.  

This option is the only one which makes sense, other than supporting Evan McMullin, who at least may have a chance to win in Utah.  But having allowed self-interested movements such as the tea party a strong foothold, it is going to be extremely difficult to work within the old Republican Party.
