It’s childish and naive to trust a person who breaks their promises, naively believes what they are told without research or evidence, and who tells provable lies and changes their positions on issues if it serves their pursuit of power and money. Psychological and sociological issues influence a person’s vulnerability to trust when that trust hasn’t been earned or isn’t reasonable. Most of the vehement opposition to Trump goes beyond the divergent political positions held by Republicans and Democrats. A conservative Republican president who gives tax cuts to the rich or opposes abortion rights would be opposed by Democrats but not as detested as Trump. It’s his lying, fringe conspiracy theories, autocratic ideology, racist rhetoric and policies, vengeful personality and inability to safely and competently execute the responsibilities of the presidency that explains the aggressive opposition to him. If the Republicans hadn’t given control of their party to Trump and his right- wing extremist cronies, the 25th Amendment could have and would have been invoked.
Democrats must continuously provide evidence that exposes the ” big lie” as a fraud campaign being used by Trump to stay relevant and to earn money. The court rulings against his election fraud charges, the Republican led recounts in red states proving Biden won, and disproven claims of voting machine malfunctions expose the ” big lie” as a scam. Trump’s claim all Republicans who oppose his claim that he won the election are closeted Democrats is an ignorant conspiracy theory with no merit. Republicans like Senators Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowsky, and Ben Sasse who reject Trump and his ideology should speak out publicly to energize the countless other elected officials to do so. However, they are in hiding focused on their jobs over country.
Trump has been given permission by the weak, silent minority to attack our democratic values, ignore the rule of law, and bilk people out of their hard-earned, not abundant money. It’s foreseeable that the RNC will eventually join former Trump University students, the Trump Foundation Charity, countless real estate contractors, Trump presidential campaign funds, and family members as victims of Trump’s financial scamming. A New York judge ordered Trump Unversity to shut down and pay millions of dollars to former students in a civil case ruling. A New York court also ordered the Trump Foundation Charity to be closed and ruled the Trump family banned from establishing another charity organization. Trump’s exploitation of others to achieve his corrupt goals is being allowed by those Republicans who are cowering in silence.
The enormous fundraising by the RNC is not based on policies that address the needs of their base or the diverse population of America. They are now a corrupted organization in the image of the Trump family. The gaslighting narrative of Trump Saving America while inciting an insurrection, coercing states to change votes to steal the election, working with corrupt attorneys to create a way for VP Mike Pence to block the certification of Joe Biden as the 46th President. That action is called “sedition” and is a crime against the United States government. The mantra of “Lock Her Up” was a gaslighting technique used to create criminal suspicion about presidential opponent Hillary Clinton to divert attention away from his support of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election to help him win. ” Lock Him Up” or ” Lock Them Up” is looking likely to result in indictments.
