Entire Republican Leadership Frozen With Fear Of Trump’s Base…

Every sin­gle mem­ber of the Republican cau­cus in the US Congress and every mem­ber of the Republican cau­cus in the United States Senate took an oath to defend the Constitution against all ene­mies for­eign and domes­tic.
Defense of the con­sti­tu­tion is so impor­tant that these pub­lic ser­vants are required to swear an oath to defend it even before tak­ing office.
These pub­lic offi­cers, most of whom call them­selves Christians, take the oath by swear­ing on a Bible.

Yet, like the unan­i­mous Republican response to the Trump impeach­ment in the house, Senate Republicans will treach­er­ous­ly abdi­cate their most sacred duty in defense of the con­sti­tu­tion, and give total feal­ty, to arguably the most cor­rupt and degen­er­ate President in American his­to­ry.
Suggesting that Donald Trump is arguably the most dan­ger­ous and degen­er­a­tive occu­pi­er of the white house says a lot, because, most of that lot have been hor­ri­ble char­ac­ters.

The trag­ic irony is that, though Donald Trump and his white base would rather have a dic­ta­tor­ship than an open plu­ral­is­tic soci­ety, (accord­ing to polling), he will not be pres­i­dent for­ev­er.
Eventually, there will be a Democrat in the White House, Democrats will con­trol the Senate, maybe even the House and Senate while hold­ing the white house.
The Democrat in the White House could and may use what Donald Trump is allowed to get away with as a prece­dent for push­ing the enve­lope.
Republicans may think they will be in the major­i­ty for­ev­er, but the dam­age they are doing to the Republic is not just for Trump to get away with high crimes and mis­de­meanors, it is for all future pres­i­dents, Democrats, and Republicans.
Worse yet, the two par­ties are so far apart ide­o­log­i­cal­ly, there is next to no chance they will come togeth­er to leg­is­late and cod­i­fy into law, best prac­tices which stip­u­lates how a pres­i­dent shall behave.

Someone argued a few days ago these are old white men who are liv­ing in the now. They care noth­ing about what hap­pens when they are gone, they say.
I agree some­what, but I also believe they see Donald Trump as the best thing for white enti­tle­ment, white iden­ti­ty, white suprema­cy, and their fraud­u­lent white griev­ances.
The Republican base cer­tain­ly thinks so. That explains the absolute fear con­gres­sion­al rep­re­sen­ta­tives and sen­a­tors in the Republican Party have of open­ing their mouths to say any­thing which could remote­ly be con­strued to be in dis­agree­ment with Trump.

The TV talk­ing heads, and the pun­dits claim that Trump’s sup­port comes from peo­ple who are eco­nom­i­cal­ly anx­ious. They are bla­tant­ly lying to the pub­lic.
These peo­ple are always eco­nom­i­cal­ly anx­ious, when­ev­er the fac­to­ries in their mid­west­ern towns and sub­urbs close they blame every­one. Immigrants, Blacks, Muslims, for­eign­ers, and every­one in-between, become their ene­my of choice.
As long as Trump hates peo­ple they do not like, he is safe with them. That well of antipa­thy has always been there to be exploit­ed, it took a man as immoral, amoral and deeply cor­rupt as Donald Trump to exploit it.
