I put it in quotes because it’s . . . a verbatim quote:

“We must destroy the Republican Party” sounds a lot like something Lincoln’s *opponents* would have said.
It also sounds like a fairly conventional position of Democrats.
I am distressed by the direction the Republican party has taken. But absent any almost certainly doomed third party scenario (and I have endorsed the idea of forming one, more as a thought experiment than a Serious Proposal), the party needs to be reformed. I’m not sure how “destroying” it is a good idea unless the idea is to install single-party rule by Democrats. Who, you might have noticed, are not particularly sensible themselves these days.
