Not Just Republican Collusion

You know, I’ve been quiet on the political front for a while, a long while for me, especially given how intensely I feel about all of the jaw-dropping betrayal of the US Constitution that’s been going on over the past several months. But, I reached a boiling point yesterday for several reasons. So, I’m about to boil over with another political post.

Republican Elephant Mouse

The Republican Party has repeatedly failed to do its constitutional duty: check and ballance the other branches of government. They have not only refused to stand up to Comrade Trump and President Putin and Russian oligarch and aluminum magnate Oleg Deripaska, they have intentionally aided and abetted them in reaching their goals which have crippled democracy, weakened the nation at home and abroad, and ceased defending the constitution by not doing their constitutional duty.

In short, we’ve reached a point in the Mueller probe where there are only two scenarios left: Either the president is compromised by the Russian government and has been working covertly to cooperate with Vladimir Putin after Russia helped win him the 2016 election—or Trump will go down in history as the world’s most famous “useful idiot,” as communists used to call those who could be co-opted to the cause without realizing it.

At least the former scenario—that the president of the United States is actively working to advance the interests of our country’s foremost, long-standing, traditional foreign adversary—would make him seem smarter and wilier. The latter scenario is simply a tragic farce for everyone involved.

If the president had been a Democrat doing half of what Comrade Trump has done, the Republican Party would have thrown him or her out of office long ago and sought to imprison him/her. Instead, they have busied themselves with appointing a judiciary that is ultra conservative, making a staggering record number of judgeship appointments while few pay attention–hence the billionaires funding this hijacking of democracy allow this to continue.

The actions of the Republican Party go well beyond hypocrisy. Their actions are those of a fully involved and complicit party. They are, at the very least, aiding and abetting an enemy of the United States–Russia. They are every bit part of this problem. They are killing democracy with intent.

The American people need to wake up and take action. I’m not talking about the type of action one person was trying to take yesterday: the man from the state of Georgia, not far from where I live, who was arrested for planning to bomb the White House. But, I suspect as this problem gets further and further out of control and continues to remain unchecked, other people will resort to violence as well.

All in all, I suspect the American people take their democracy rather seriously.

Oh, and one final thing: The bully in the White House, the Mob Boss, comrade Trump is ordering people back to work with no pay. Is this any surprise to anyone? He didn’t pay his contracted workers on his own personal building projects, forcing them into bankruptcy. And this is the guy the conservatives just had to have in the White House. Hope middle America is satisfied with their purchase.
