I don't know. Elise Stefanik makes some great points.

Quote :
"On Friday, things escalated when Wood called Greene a “communist”: "In my opinion, Marjorie Taylor Greene is a communist. If Marjorie Taylor Greene is running around saying 'Impeach Biden,' that says that Biden won—he didn't," Wood wrote on his Telegram channel, boosting the conspiracy once again that Trump won the election."


Quote :
"Greene, who has until now ignored Wood’s attacks. responded on her Twitter account by referencing allegations by Rittenhouse’s mother that Wood had stolen money from a fundraising campaign designed to fund the 18-year-old’s defense. “He lifts up his Bible high and lies and lies,” Greene tweeted, referring to Wood constantly referencing his faith. “He’s not one of us.”"

I think that's depicting Trump as an avenging angel, not as God himself. Still weird, of course.

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2021/11/09/upton-receives-death-threats-after-backing-bipartisan-public-works-bill/6351806001/

Link includes death threat audio.

Quote :
" Republican U.S. Rep. Fred Upton said he has received well over 1,000 calls including multiple "nasty" death threats since he voted for a bipartisan infrastructure bill that he helped write with GOP and Democratic colleagues earlier this year.

More than 90% of the calls are coming from outside of Upton's southwest Michigan district, a spokesman said, including one man from South Carolina who left this message: "I hope you die. I hope everybody in your f------ family dies," while calling the longtime lawmaker a "f------ piece of s--- traitor."

[...]

The congressman said the calls started after his Republican colleague, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, publicly posted the names and phone numbers of Upton and a dozen other GOP House members who voted in support of the bill, calling them "traitors.""


Only traitors want roads and bridges.

I love that Upton blames the death threats on polarization as if the threats were coming from crazed Democrats. The calls are coming from inside the house, bro!

I'll have to admit that I have before, but I certainly can't now.

I already had misgivings in multiple areas, but Trump and the party's ongoing reaction to him was enough to turn me off forever. I'm very disappointed in friends, colleagues, and acquaintances who have an endless chain of excuses for the guy. Why?! He's objectively awful and dangerous.

^Same. Growing up in a Christian Republican family (but not a Southern Baptist, Bible thumping far-right family) I was in favor of fiscal conservatism, but did not give two shits about gay marriage, abortion, weed, etc so I often voted third party and occasionally even a Democrat or two. But the way the Republican party fell all over themselves to fellate the Don and excuse anything he did made me sick. And when so many were able to completely write off criticisms of Trump as "Fake News" even though they gave Clinton such shit for the Monica Lewinsky affair and Democrats for the cult of personality around Bill and Hillary, the hypocrisy was just too much and I was done. After Trump was elected I began actively voting Democrat as an FU to them. They hyper partisanship on their part is sickening. Unless they completely repudiate Trumpism and the far-right like MTG and Madison Cawthorn, I will no longer support them.

Unfortunately, this experience among cradle Republicans seems to be the clear minority. Most appear to be doubling down. Anything passes to cling to power, I guess (oh, and to own the libs, of course). Spineless.

For as long as I can remember, I've always downloaded a sample ballot prior to each election, then looked up each candidate's campaign website and examined their stated issues and sometimes their bios if I wasn't sold on any given candidate's issues alone.

I usually ended up picking a Democrat, but I tried my best to be as bipartisan as possible and would possibly elect a couple of Republicans for various positions.

However, in 2010, based on the candidates' stated positions, I didn't vote for a single Republican, because every Republican candidate seemed to have absurd positions. I may have left some of the entries blank, if I wasn't happy with the Democratic candidate either, but I didn't cast a single Republican vote that election.

I recall feeling fairly guilty afterwards for having voted in such a partisan fashion.

Then, the new General Assembly took office, flooded with Republicans who had been recently elected, and they began passing absurd legislation.

It didn't take long for me to feel completely vindicated for not having voted for a single one of them.

In 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, I may have continued to review Republican candidates' stated issues, but I had no regrets if I didn't vote for any of them.

In 2020, I didn't review any Republican candidates' websites - I only reviewed the campaign sites of Democrats and Libertarians - because I refused to vote for any candidate that would appear on the same ballot with the same party affiliation as Donald Trump.

I'll likely review their campaign websites again in 2022, but it's unlikely that I'll vote for any of them anytime soon.

Voted for Dubya twice. Won't vote for a GOP candidate for dogcatcher until they explicitly disavow Trump. Voted straight ticket D in 2020.

Both of your experiences are pretty similar to mine. I would vote R and D based more on issues than what team they were on, mainly because in my area of Eastern NC there were no Republican candidates in local elections. Then when the Republicans took over the state Legislature and started supporting bullshit like HB2, I was thoroughly disgusted and decided to not support them at least at the state level. Like Grumpy said, once the party was fully MAGA'd I was done and will be until they have completely turned from Trumpism.

I don't know how this system of government is going to "work" if the losing party never accepts a loss without allegations of rampant yet somehow categorically unprovable fraud.
