Trump being acquitted shows how democracy could really die – Vox


Reading Time: 3 minutes
The deliberate flaunting of democracy and the open destruction of it by the GOP just pisses me off. They are so sure that the electorate either cannot or will not hold them accountable that they aren’t even bothering to hide it. If we let them get away with it in November. If we don’t vote Trump and the Senate majority out in November, then we really are the United Fucking States of Fucking Stupid.

MEME: Putin has bought the Republican Party

Reading time: less than a minute
Here is the reason that no Republican will suddenly find their courage, backbone, or patriotism and stand up to Mitch McConnell and the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. They want the corruption. They want the fixed elections. They want the incompetent judges. They want oligarchy. They want authoritarianism.Putin has sold them on the Russian system of corrupt governance. Putin has bought and paid for them. They no longer hold democratic values.
