As a Republican Party that once represented actual policies and principles and was once respected, even by those of us who usually disagreed with it, descends into the morass of TrumpubliQan cult extremism, and increasing numbers of mainstream Americans, including many former lifelong Republicans are jumping off the sinking ship.
Today’s TrumpubliQan Qrazy Qonservative Qult of Qool-Aid-drinking, Golden (fools’s gold) idol-worshipping Qonspiracy theorists knows that it can no longer win national elections, or even have a chance at winning back control of either the Senate or the House, without massive voter suppression, gerrymandering, overturning lawful and legitimate elections and illegal foreign interference.
They know that they must stop more people from voting who are not part of their cult, and their efforts at suppression and electoral larceny have become so egregious that even former mainstream Republicans can no longer go along with them, and even many of their long-time corporate allies are turning their backs on such anti-democratic efforts.
When Democrats propose common-sense election security laws that protect the right to vote, people like Moscow Mitch McConnell call it a “power grab.” Yep, it is “WE THE PEOPLE” grabbing back the power of the vote that is morally and legally our democratic birthright.
