It no longer matters which term is used to describe the idiocy of right-wing politicians. Instead, they defend the worst of their party, every man and woman who calls themselves “Republican” continues to prove that there is no cure for stupid.
I consider myself an intelligent and well-informed man. Therefore, I find it an insult to hear Republicans speak in front of the television cameras, tweet, or post on Facebook/Meta. The list is long, but here are some of the worst:
Senators John Kennedy from Louisiana, Ted Cruz, Texas, Ron Johnson, Wisconsin, Tom Cotton, Arkansas, Rand Paul, Kentucky, and Marco Rubio, Florida. Representatives Kevin McCarthy, California, Jim Jordan, Ohio, Devin Nunes, California, Matt Gaetz, Florida, Lauren Boebert, Colorado, and Marjorie Taylor Greene, Georgia.
This list could be much longer, and no, I did not forget about the old man from Kentucky, Moscow Mitch McConnell. In more than 36 years in Congress, he has accomplished nothing for the American people. He is the creator of “the party of no.” He is also the biggest hypocrite in Washington.
In February 2016, Justice Antonin Scalia suddenly passed away. President Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace him. Moscow Mitch refused to hold hearings, stating that “a seat on the Court should not be filled in an election year.” Nine months remained until the election.
In September 2020, the great Ruth Bader Ginsburg lost her battle for life. Moscow Mitch hurried the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, although there was less than a month remaining until the election. He broke his own rule because he had an opportunity to “stack the court.”
The good news is that the party of liars and hypocrites is imploding again. Not only are they incapable of governing, but they are also unable to work with members of their own failed party.
Recently Rep. Lauren Boebert attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar, calling her a “terrorist.” This prompted another Republican Representative to attack Boebert, Nancy Mace from South Carolina. Marjorie Taylor Greene, acting like Marjorie Taylor Greene, defended he fellow traitor to America and criticized Mace for her remarks. Sometimes it is fun to watch immature girls fight.
My greatest fear is that the Trump Party will regain control of the House and possibly the Senate in the 2022 midterm elections. This must not happen: your vote is critical.
The entire Republican Party, from first to last, is America’s enemy. They continue to vote against the wishes of the American people on essential issues, including healthcare, income inequality, affordable education, fair taxation, immigration reform, and every issue involving women’s rights.
Under Donald Trump’s reign of terror, right-wing politicians moved so far to the right they are always wrong and can reasonably be labeled “fascists.”
I beg you to vote. When there is a large turnout, Independents and Democrats win. This is why there are efforts to suppress the vote in every red state. We can save our country, and all we need to do is fill out a ballot.
