@PixxburghGirl @TonyStark And they want to con people into donating money. That’s not a platform but it’s one of their goals.

@TonyStark I no longer think of national Republicans as a political party with a legitimate agenda. They may one day return to being a political party. But now they are similar to mobsters who rule through intimidation, lies and violence. In my opinion, Jan. 6th was the date the illusion fully collapsed and today's Republicans showed who they really are.

I guess one by one, anyone who wants a political future in reality is going to have to admit reality.

Rick Scott acknowledges Biden 'absolutely' won fair election:

Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), who joined a challenge to Pennsylvania's Electoral College results when Congress was certifying presidential election votes, conceded Sunday that President Biden “absolutely” won the 2020 election fairly.

Cawthorn is a feature, not a bug, of the Trump party. The stream of lies coming from his mouth is exactly what today's conservatives hail as 'Free Speech', the right to be as destructive as they damn please yet remain free from all consequences.

A liar, a sexual predator, and a gaslighter - the face of the modern Republican party.
Very sad that he's in the U.S. government but hardly surprising that he's a right winger. People like this are extremely dangerous and just add to the reasons why the GOP must be purged from holding office.

@TonyStark
Here's another one from Illinois.

Let's make sure all of these attempts to overthrow our democracy and install a white supremacist theocracy do not get swept under the rug. These people aren't just ignorant, they're dangerous. There must be consequences for their actions.

@TonyStark
The most important thing to the Republican Party right now is to be loyal beyond comprehension to a failed one-term president and Trumpism. That's it. They have no policy or platform beyond that.

@QueenRamonda
I have, thanks. I've seen graphics that make that mistake made by our own people. Thanks for posting an article that goes into a good explanation.

Don't let anyone else decide what your party is called! I remember this as far back as the Bush II years. Republican is an adjective, Democratic is an adjective. Democrat is not.

I know @TonyStark has talked about this before to the instance.

What's in an adjective? 'Democrat Party' label on the rise:

@MariaHill @TonyStark It was one of the main things the preacher talked about when my parents used to drag me to church.

@TonyStark I just can't get over the fact that Evangelicals are so brainwashed and hateful that they ignore their own book. It's not supposed to be "don't worship false idols... unless they give you the tax breaks and judges you like." Somewhere along the way they became what they claimed to be against when they started. It happened before trump, but now it's too obvious to ignore.

:
Republican Senator Bill Cassidy says he doesn’t think the former guy will be the GOP nominee for president in 2024. "Over the last four years, we lost the House... the Senate and the presidency" which has not happened since Herbert Hoover. "If we idolize one person, we will lose."

Meanwhile, at CPAC, someone wheeled in a literal idol.

@TonyStark It's like "comic con" for racist white supremacists. 🤦‍♂️ Disgusted that is happening in America.

... Coachella for Insurrectionists ...

Its so sad that the most important thing to the Republican Party right now, is to be loyal beyond comprehension to a failed one-term president.

It's the lie that wouldn't die. Republicans know they can't win playing by the rules, so they make up new rules.

Nothing is off the table, even allowing state legislatures to replace election results they don't like. What is being done to voting rights in this country is an obscenity.

HR1 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act need passed while we have the majority in the Senate, House, and White House and every one of us must get involved on the local level to protect the vote.

Republicans roll out “tidal wave of voter suppression” with 253 restrictive bills in 43 states-

@TonyStark Don't most of them claim to be Christians? I'm not but I seem to remember a bible story about a golden calf. Anyone else? 🐮​

@TonyStark From every angle, planetary health and the health of living things is most important. Effectively dealing with climate change is at the root of that and I'm pleased to see President Biden taking it so seriously.
