    One of the most amazing aspects is how many Republican heroes are Traitors.

    Or maybe how many Traitors are Republican heroes.

    Bad things happen when the undereducated/superstitious/religious — needing a strong leader — are fed anti-democracy propaganda by the ultra-wealthy as a means of sustaining their wealth inequity. By designating greed/accumulation as good and envy/poverty as a sin, they have this segment of the public working against themselves.

    There is something seriously wrong with someone who keeps pushing intentional misinformation in spite of the obvious pain it inflicts on the victims. Thank goodness there was a way to impose consequences. Unfortunately, the consequences will never be equal to the evil spewing from Jones’ lips.

    Things I can’t unsee in my lifetime: Challenger Space Shuttle Disaster, the January Insurrection, Charlottesville, immigrant children housed in cages, Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, 9/11/01 Twin Towers. History will give 45 the credit for three of them.

    Reagan’s 11th Commandment: “Thou shalt not criticize a fellow Republican.” Reagan actually made Party Over Country the official policy of the Republican Party.

    One of the only true things Donald Trump ever said was that he could shoot someone of 5th Avenue and not lose support.

    They will gladly see this country crumble to dust as long as someone with an “R” after his name is in charge of the dust.

    So the answer is a guy with imaginary friends and appendages and a gal with an imaginary vocabulary. Perhaps all those who complain- and I do mean all – can come up with an actual solution instead of blaming each other.

    Politics has always involved certain degrees of studied lying, i.e. rhetoric. However, callously undermining faith in the entire democratic election system is hypocrisy on a nation-dooming scale. If a candidate will buy into an oh-so-obvious lie, everything they claim to support is suspect.

    And point out there’s more evidence the 2000 and 2016 elections were stolen and suddenly they either get concerned about “truth” or tell people to get over it.

    Trump has lots of his followers running for positions where they can control election outcomes. There are election deniers up for Secretary of State positions in several key states. That’s exactly how Hitler came to power – he put his supporters into high political offices and when he made his move to take over, nobody could stop him.

    That’s what’s happening right now and it’s not a joke. There’s a reason the Republicans had a Hungarian authoritarian dictator speaking at CPAC this weekend and a reason they cheered for him.

    Keep in mind, the GQP is universally convinced that the Big One, the 2020 presidential election, was “stolen” precisely because their despicable candidate received around 58% of the White vote while President Biden, and civility, polled only around 42% of the White vote. It was the “illegal” votes, counted equally, of all of “those other people” that put President Biden in office. That was and is utterly unacceptable to the Q-publiguns, and it’s precisely why they continue to claim that the election was “fraudulent” and “stolen.” They’re just frustrated that they can’t actually say that out loud quite yet and get away with it, and they’re peeved that the rest of the world refuses to understand or sympathize with their frustration.
