IMPORTANT NOTICE: The blogger has received notice of new responsibilities relevant to new "laws" coming from the European Union. The blogger receives no personally indentifiable information. As the task of understanding just what this new "law" (not applicable to American citizens) means will take some time, The Musical Patriot respectfully asks citizens in the European Union to cease and desist from accessing this blog for the time being. 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.)

The Republican Party After Trump

This, of course, is a huge subject.  There are those who wonder whether the Republican Party can even survive Trump.  And it may not.

What is most important is that the Republic survive.  And it seems that it will -- if only barely.
Our task now is to reinforce the democracy, to make correctives so Trumpism as a proto-fascist movement never emerges again.

To do this, we must provide for the needs of our citizens in a way the profit system never can.  We must ensure work which provides a living wage for families.  We must provide health care for all.  We must make provision for a healthy and secure retirement.  Our young people must receive an equal, practical, and effective education.  The environment deserves protection.  And all this must be accomplished without ushering in an authoritarian government.  An ambitious agenda?  To be sure.  But we must continue to strive for decency and respect for all.  Our children depend on us now.
