    The matches were used up — lighting sparklers to wave The Big Lie forth.

    Let’s hope the GQP is running out of matches.

    The GOP lacks the ability anymore to make democracy function.

    They used up the box burning the Constitution, after wiping their butt with it….

    Excellent metaphor! The GOP is an empty box! The party of Lincoln and Eisenhower has hit a bump with Trump.

    There are other comments about the empty match box, but none seem apt to me. Which causes me to wonder why Bennett drew the empty match box? Surely Bennett knows that the GOP is not finished nor unable to continue its wrecking ball operations on liberal democracy.

    Interesting the toon shows an empty match box. I guess the GOP are just waiting for some Trumpist to flick their Bic.

    I heard it explained neatly: There are those who believe the American Experiment has become so corrupt that the only choice is to blow it up and replace it with a strong man who will punish the people I don’t like and reward people like me.

    I like the strip but more like the GOP is gleefully pouring water on Lady Liberty’s flame.

    Yep. Taking the decision of abortion’s legality away from 9 unelected people and giving to 250 million people sure sounds like the death knell of democracy to me.

    I think the rocket is a symbolic celebration of Democracy on the 4th (formerly known as Independence Day but not this year) and the GOOP can’t get it going.

    Our poor Country. The republic*nts and their Extreme Court are systematically destroying everything that was ever good about us.

    That’s amusing, considering that it’s (mostly) Democrats burning the whole country down.

    Seriously, these justices and their cohorts voted to limit the Environmental Protection Agencies ability to protect the environment. They are in a cult and insane.

    This final season of America has been absolutely amazing. I mean, it starts with an attack on the Capital and ends with a new Supreme Court that is actively dismantling democracy! And it perfectly sets up the Civil War miniseries that will follow.

    Whatever you think good Germans should have done in 1933 Germany

    good Americans need to be doing that now.

    How sadly ironic, Americans are preparing to celebrate “Independence” day, while the highest court in the land is busy removing it.
