You do wonder if The Republican's might come to realise that whilst Trump and others that follow his path carry a large and very loyal following that they are worried about losing, he also seems to be putting off those that might vote Republican ordinarily and hardening the Dem's vote and actually getting them out to vote. There was a lot of talk of "look how many votes Trump won", but look how many Biden won.

It certainly is a split nation, but The Republican's could easily end up with more splits internally whilst being on the losing side. Almost a mirror image of the UK but more out there...or American.
You do have the Mit Romney Republicans and you have the Trump Republicans, Two very different factions in one Party,

Romney wouldn't do anything to damage to the party. Trump would.
He wouldn't but he's of the Ronald Regan Republican, Trump and his mob are an extreme side of the Republicans, They'd do anything to gain power as seen on Jan 6th and there are plenty of Americans who'll vote for them.

Other news, Arizona, According to reports are going to use Zyklon B for executing their death row inmates, After they can't get the stuff they use for carrying out lethal injections. They now are going to use the Gas Chamber. You can say want you want about Capital Punishment but using that gas is just so awful with its history.

Nothing surprises me about America. Bloody awful place.

Yes, but you cold argue that if someone takes someone else's life, they deserve what's coming; be it via gas or a more medieval route via an iron maiden.

Does the forthcoming release of Colin Pitchfork who took the lives of two young girls in the eighties sit particularly well with you? I have to say, it doesn't with me.

No it doesn't sit well, But I don't make these decisions, You'll have to ask the Parole Board that, We as a nation do not use Capital Punishment, My point was given the history of that gas, Surely there was others to use?

This piece of human excrement should be locked up forever.

I agree with what the LCJ said:

The Lord Chief Justice at the time of his sentencing said: "From the point of view of the safety of the public I doubt if he should ever be released."
