As I was watching the media coverage on the anniversary of the Trump-incited insurrection on Jan. 6, it was glaringly obvious which of the two major political parties has gone off the rails of democracy.

In the U.S. House chamber, there were only two members of what used to be the Republican Party in attendance, Rep. Liz Cheney and her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.

I have disagreed with both of these people over the years concerning policy, but right now I couldn’t be standing more lock-step with them over their role as true patriots, putting the good of the nation above the adoration of a traitorous, autocratic, dictatorial wannabe.

When a person looks at the empty seats that should have been filled with the Republican representatives in remembrance of the day that our democracy could have died, it is heartbreaking and disgusting to see their lack of caring about the republic they have sworn to protect. The nation is already hearing their feeble excuses.

But when the GOP representatives have sold their souls in adulation of an infamous grifter and con-artist, the democracy of our nation takes a back seat. And that does not bode well for the future of our country. Let’s just hope that the followers of the legally defeated former president see the light and put country above party when they have another chance to cast a ballot for the highest office in the land.
