Today’s GOP is a far cry from the noble party of 1956……and since 1980 it has been in steady radicalization….today it has NOTHING to offer the country other than ‘chaos and instability’……
The GOP are not a political party as we have known such for most of our history. They are closer to a camp of oligarchic terrorists, employing techniques used by Fascists and other authoritarian regimes, and excoriated in 1984, to attempt a slow-moving coup, , whose aim is the destruction of voting rights, constitutional democracy, and the creation of a one-party state.
Political strategist David Plouffe said on MSNBC last week, “They`re not hiding what they`re doing. …they`re not only trying to make it harder to register to vote, they want to change …who gets to decide who wins elections….” “[T]his is existential. If you think that this Republican won`t go to the …furthest extremes to hold on to power, to steal power, to deny voters their franchise, I don`t know what you`re watching.”
Back to the ‘chaos and instability’ thing…..
Newly leaked video footage of a recent event hosted by the right-wing group Patriot Voices shows Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas openly admitting that his party wants “18 more months of chaos and the inability to get stuff done” as President Joe Biden, a bipartisan group of senators, and congressional Democrats work to pass climate and infrastructure legislation.
“Honestly, right now, for the next 18 months, our job is to do everything we can to slow all of that down to get to December of 2022,” Roy says in the clip, referring to the month after that year’s midterm elections. Republicans need to flip just a handful of seats to take back the House and Senate.
“I don’t vote for anything in the House of Representatives right now,” Roy says in response to an audience member’s question about the sweeping infrastructure and safety-net package that Democrats are planning to pass unilaterally alongside a White House-backed bipartisan deal.
Is the American voter this naive? Or maybe a better word is….STUPID….that they allow this obstructionism to continue?
Just on the word of a notorious liar…..that goes beyond ignorant into the realm of extreme stupidity.
Not to worry….the Dems are just as worthless as the GOP.
Dems have great ideas they just do not know how to translate that into action…..in other words they are great at defense but have no offensive strategy.
There are a few that try to bring about these ideas but the so-called ‘centrist’ always win and the ideas become lackluster at best.
So another American party of stupid.
