It’s said that suburbs are named after what they destroy. Today’s Republican Party is rushing toward holding that “distinction” too. This degeneration is no longer about political opinions or ideologies, it’s about values. The GOP has lost its mind, sold its soul and exposed its depraved values. Their actions and inactions demonstrate that they value only one thing, money/power, flip sides of the same coin and they have thwarted representative democracy, our very Republic, in their morbid quest.
Here in the Badgered State we have laws, written and voted on in secret by far away corporations, and imposed on you by Vos and Fitzgerald without attribution. They’ve passed numerous laws taking away local control. Gross gerrymandering makes majority vote rule meaningless, the Republicans still control the legislature. They suppress voters, betraying the very foundation of our Republic. And they got the judicial hacktivist stacked extreme court to place the economy above our pandemic threatened lives, ruling absurdly that our constitution prohibits our government from protecting its citizens, its first and foremost function. That’s what kangaroos do. They even lame-duck limited the power of our governor when they objected to the choice We the People made.
At the federal level, the GOP has backed every un-American, authoritarian play of a cult figure who embodies the seven deadly sins and exhibits zero counter-balancing virtuous values. Their tax cut for the rich proved they don’t care about debt or deficits. Law & order? Please, he’s surrounded himself with felons, corrupticons and pedophiles and if you’re the president’s pal your pardoned.
The final evidence of this party’s degeneration to golden calf idolatry is their insistence on sacrificing our children on the altar of their moneygod. It’s not about education, it’s about daycare and pandemic prone parents being pressed back into service for fun, profit and Trump’s re-election, the prospect of which represents the final republican nail in the coffin of our republic. I never believed they were really pro-life, but this is proof positive and it begs the question, “Republicans, have you no decency!”
