It is truth and reality, it is what they have done. One look at their record shows that the public still is willing to elect the republicans in spite of what they have done. And we have been living under a repressive government for decades.
The anger finally spilled over, which is why trump was elected. But he did what every good demagogue does, scapegoat others for the blame. Instead of really pointing out how the system was gamed for the rich, he blamed muslims and hispanics for their woes. They were to blame instead of people like him.
Drain the swamp, he puts bigger alligators in. He lies and his followers insist that the people telling the truth are lying. He says he could shoot someone and his followers just nod their heads. He says grab women by their genitals, do what you want to them, and they say it is just locker room talk.
The republicans are being very open with what they are going to do. And except for a few democrats, there haven't been any objections. 20 million are going to lose their insurance, why no public outcry? Republicans say they will allow open discriminations against the LGBTQ community and no public outrage. Cut taxes for the rich, no public out cry.
People will whimper and cry, then wait for the next demagogue to scapegoat some minority and more repression will happen.
Fear, yes. I have studied what complete republican rule means in states. Anger, yes. That americans are sheep to the slaughter and won't stop the insanity of corporate and rich rule. Hate, I don't hate the people, but I certainly hate what has been done. I have watched all my life, from mccarthy to now how hate and fear of others is used to manipulate the sheep.
It's strange that the tea party people never got pepper sprayed, but BLM, occupy wall st and any real protest against the repressive system is attacked. Well strange if you don't know that the tea party people were easily manipulated while the others aren't.
All that complaining about corporations and the rich from the tea party and yet, the richest people ever are being put into charge, w/o a murmur of protest from the tea party. That so called majority that trump brags about.
I have been protest since I was young back in the 50s', waiting for the people to wake up to what is being done. The revolution better hurry and get here, I can't afford to wait another 60 yrs for it to begin.
