It's never been more important to build bridges. See what it's like beyond where you live. Build ties of commerce with people who see things differently. Hire people who challenge you. Read a book you disagree with.
I promise you, the real enemy is not thinking this way.
I get the instinct to laugh at this, but the deeply emotional trauma this scam has wrought on family, friendships, and relationships for four years...and to land where those of us on this side knew we would: nowhere. It’s not satisfying; It’s infuriating.
A THREAD OF THANKS. On the last midnight of this kakistocracy, my heartfelt thanks to Never Trumpers. It takes integrity to go against your own side. Many of you lost friends and family to Trumpism, but that didn't stop you. You spoke out. You showed up. 1/5
A fellow conservative friend once (politely) asked me why I couldn’t shut up. It was because I felt people needed to see they had a choice. You could be a conservative and find Trump completely unacceptable, and refuse to make excuses for him.
Amid people (or at least accounts) being flushed from Twitter for being total cesspits, I just want to thank the vast majority of my followers for being a source of intelligent interaction, challenging ideas, good humor, and - at times - unexpected wonder. You're good folks.
