As you scan today’s Daily Habit headlines, you’ll notice the inclusion of a piece that seems out of place — the transcript of Liz Cheney’s defiant remarks to her party on the House floor last night. It’s included because it’s a pivotal moment, not just for the Republican Party, but for the political future of the nation. Reports are surfacing that several notable Republicans are threatening to break away and form a new party. And that’s what needs to be done. Isolate the nationalistic, anti-immigrant Trump-believers and our country will see how many racists, white supremacists are hiding behind the GOP label. Then in the next election, we will see if our nation rejects this racist ideology or chooses to embrace it. Only then, will we know if the United States still has a future as a Democratic beacon to the world. In other news, the rate of unaccompanied minors is dropping; There are still too many people choosing to believe the disinformation about the vaccine and will they be to blame for the predicted winter resurge?; and Chilean voters must decide among over 1,000 political candidates running for office. Now, they have an app that helps them make up their minds. Go beyond the headlines…
