Not so long ago, the Republican Party had members who could be perceived as patriotic and willing to join Democrats in order to advance the interests of the American people. It wasn’t always an easy alliance, but it was one that produced incremental progress in an environment of cooperation. That was all BT (Before Trump).
In the era of Trump the GOP has devolved into a cult that worships their Dear Leader above all else. Legislation, policy, commitment to the needs of the people, and even respect for the law, have all been scrapped in favor of fawning sheepishly over an ignoramous with aspirations of authoritarian tyranny. In today’s Republican Party you either suck up to Trump or get cast out as a lying “RINO” who never had what it takes.
The putrefaction of a once potent political party hasn’t gone unnoticed by the American people. And that includes President Biden, who posted a merciless meme that featured the GOP’s rising scars articulating their atrocious agenda for the future should they regain power. It begins appropriately with Trump spawn Eric declaring ominously that the GOP “is no longer the Republican Party. It’s the Trump Party” …

It isn’t surprising that Republicans are the best messengers for their dystopian perspective of what a GOP future would look like. They aren’t the least bit shy about articulating just how abominable they are. A Fox News host recently criticized the sentence Steve Bannon received as “tyranny and total bullshit.” Then immediately insisted that it was what Republicans needed to do. She was affirmatively advocating the “tyranny and bullshit” agenda.
Another honest spokesperson for the vileness of the GOP is Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. On Friday she appeared on a Trumpian video pod to layout what she regarded as the GOP’s plan if they manage to get a majority in the House. She said that…
“We are going to be leading a revolution in Congress. And that is to put a referendum on the Democrat Party. A referendum through investigation and accountability. Joe Biden and his family will be a top target. And so will the CDC, the FBI, the Department of Justice, Department of Education, Homeland Security, and many other federal government entities that have abused power and done so much damage to our country. And it’s time to start, starting in January of 2023.”

So Greene’s priorities are to engage in endless investigations and persecutions of Biden, his family, and other Democrats, based on nothing but her QAnon/Wingnut hallucinations. There was nothing in that rant that was remotely associated with any of the priorities of the American people. And Greene isn’t just a House backbencher. She is a member that GOP minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, has said would have a place in leadership. What’s more, Greene has speculated about herself becoming the GOP leader, and how she would rule.
These Trumpy Republicans are currently in the ascendance in the party. And we can rest assured that they mean what they say. And for that reason we need to make sure that voters are aware of what the GOP has in store. They are literally aiming to cause palpable harm to the nation. And they aren’t afraid to say so. Which makes them the best spokespersons for why people must vote for Democrats up and down the ballot this November 8.
