It's not enough.
Author: Raine    Date: 10/25/2017 13:09:47

It's a start, but it's not enough. Corker and Flake are retiring and now are free to speak their minds, but as the Washington Post Editorial board states, it is not enough.

Here is the thing, I know who they are; They are Republicans. They'll vote party line over 90% of the time. Same goes for Murkowski and Collins. I'm am a Dem and I expect my party members to do the same. That isn't really the problem

The problem is what the party has become. It's Trump party. It's not even conservative anymore. It's extreme authoritarianism and as long as they stay silent either in or out of office, they are complicit. They haven't even begun to show how terrible things are behind the scenes.

So, I applaud Jeff Flake and Bob Corker for taking a first step, now this country needs them to drag some more people along into the light. They are no heroes but they are speaking out, and we need more people from that side of the aisle to do so. This is about Country over any party at this point.


If not, we can kiss our Nation -- both the one we knew and the one we had strived to truly become -- goodbye.
