How Can the GOP Fever Be Broken?

It’s hard to identify a Republican agenda these days beyond negative, anti-democracy efforts, such as implementing new voter suppression laws, lying about election fraud, gaslighting about the deadly, violent reality of the January 6 insurrection, clinging to Donald Trump, and putting in place a litmus test that requires denying the truth of President Biden’s victory.

Yes, there are reasons to worry. But all this has me wondering: What will it take to break the GOP fever and shift the dynamic? I look forward to your thoughts and the chance to learn from each other. And please do be respectful with each other: This is meant to be a constructive open forum.
