The autocratic movement Trump has inspired has spawned cruel, racist, anti- democratic surrogates who are stealing rights from Americans. The MAGA Republican’s fanatical religious, autocratic ideology opposes the rights of minorities, women, immigrants and members of the LGBTQ community. Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar and Lauren Boebert are among the members of Congress who espouse fascist views and our Constitution SHOULD be able to remove them from office. The MAGA movement is exposing laws in our Constitution that were meant to protect democracy and human rights but actually threaten their survival. Jurors sometimes get verdicts wrong, and sometimes voters get it wrong when they elect unfit people into public office. Repair mechanisms must be put in place that reduce the power of the vote of people who knowingly or unknowingly wrongly elevate disturbed people, traitors, or fascists into positions of power in our government.
The careers of several Trump attorney’s and Trump surrogates have died. Americans who listened to Trump’s lies about Covid not being deadly died. A supporter who attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6th died. Police officers who defended democracy during the insurrection died. Over 1,000 Trump insurrectionists watched their freedom die because the DOJ convicted them of crimes against democracy and put them in jail. Members of Congress saw their time in office die prematurely. Let’s hope what dies next is Trumpism, the MAGA movement and disinformation.
President Biden passed five major bills with bipartisan support:
- The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill
- The American Rescue Plan in Response to COVID-19
- The Gun Violence Reduction Act
- The CHIPS Act
- The Inflation Reduction Act
The Republicans have announced no legislative plans for healthcare, climate control, inflation, crime, or defending democracy at home and worldwide. However, they are keeping busy visiting insurrectionists in jail, interfering in the indictment of Donald Trump in New York, investigating Hunter Biden, and kissing Trump’s ass. Psychologists believe Trump and his ideology have created a cult of fear, religious worship, and control that has brainwashed millions of rural, white, uneducated evangelicals. If non-members of the MAGA cult vote, Trump is burnt toast.
