How many times do I have to say that the Republican cunts in the USA do not believe in a Democracy!

Arizona Republicans silent on Donald Trump's plan to become our king

Trump is 'an enemy of the Constitution'

I mean, Trump is getting into old school banana republic fascist dictatorship territory here. Juan Perón territory. Anastasio Somoza territory.

And in the days since the post there has been condemnation of Trump’s statement. But with few exceptions, only by Democrats.

One of those exceptions, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, a prominent member of the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, tweeted:

“Donald Trump believes we should terminate ‘all rules, regulations and articles, even those found in the Constitution’ to overturn the 2020 election. That was his view on 1/6 and remains his view today. No honest person can now deny that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution.”

Thanks to Trump, the Democrats have gained an absolute majority in the Senate. In this race Trump hand picked a brain dead Herschel Walker, a one time brilliant Running Back in American Football to be the Republican Senate candidate and lost, but not by much, which tells you how fucked up the Republican voting cunts are in the state of Georgia that they would vote for someone like Walker who has zero experience in any public office, but all that aside, Walker is a walking brain dead zombie who doesn’t have a clue what his job as a senator would entail. These are the same brain dead Trump supporters who do not believe in a Democracy when they lose. In all fairness, there are some really nice Republican politicians in Georgia who have basically told Trump to go fuck himself when he wanted for Georgia to overturn the 2020 election results.


ABC News
Four takeaways after Georgia's Senate runoff: What Warnock's win means

ABC News projects that Raphael Warnock has won a full six-year term representing Georgia in the Senate, fending off GOP nominee Herschel Walker in Tuesday's runoff.

The race attracted an avalanche of money and attention as well as record-high turnout from state voters as Democrats fought for a 51st Senate seat and Republicans vied to keep the chamber at 50-50 after neither candidate cracked 50% in the November general election, triggering a runoff.

Here are four takeaways from election night round two.

Democrats expand their margin in the Senate

Warnock's win delivers Democrats an outright majority in the Senate, which will now be split 51-49. Democrats only control the current Senate with Vice President Kamala Harris as a tie-breaker.

With their new margin, Democrats will no longer have to negotiate a power-sharing agreement with Republicans to form a functioning Senate and will have majorities in committees, easing the path for legislation and nominees to make it to the full chamber floor. :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

But really LR, how can anyone, Republican, Democrat or Independent voter can vote for someone who is thick as two planks just because they have a “R, D or I” in front of their names representing the political party they belong to? Surely this does not put these brain dead voters in a good light, that they are willing to vote for someone purely based on name recognition, which how most Americans do vote, that is based on name recognition without even understanding the candidates credentials.

Ahh, the timeless mistake. Overestimating the electorate. :lol:

It is refreshing to see ordinary people being ordinary people in such a dignified manner; at such a moment no words but actions count.

...yes the public is always underestimated, at their peril, by politicians who think they control the narrative.
