We seem to be slipping more and more into Idiocracy, it baffles me how this women is an elected offical in Georgia....:facepalm:
This is where we're at right now, as a whole. No one is left out of the loop. We are experiencing a reality based on a thin veneer of lies and illusions. A world where greed is our God and wisdom is sin, where division is key and unity is a fantasy, where the ego-driven cleverness of the mind is praised, rather than the intelligence of the heart.

Both the GOP and Dem party are culpable, along with the media apparatus. Sheep mentality via citizens, too.

It really is insane how much Republicans have hand waved away with Trump. If you would have asked me five years ago how bad things could possibly get, never in my wildest dreams would I have said oh just a President who cowtoes to white supremacist groups, conspiracy theorists, and a cult... and refuses to acknowledge the results of an election and organizes a stop the steal rally the day of certification where he encourages his followers to storm the nation's Capitol, oh and some of those followers were definitely there to assassinate elected officials and also they killed a cop or two. Oh yeah, and the vast majority of Republicans would STILL approve of him. Yeah, I never would have guessed it could get that bad.
Trump is the world's sorest loser. He could have helped the country a lot by conceding before leaving office. Instead, he doubled down in being a sore loser from soliciting vote fraud by asking Georgia officials to find him nearly 12,000 votes. Fight false fire with real fire. What a classless low and stupid way to look even weaker and more defeated.

The people who still support Trump surely have his same morals and will gladly and shamelessly go to his rallies. I couldn't relate to Trump for sure ever since 2016 when he said in a debate that wages are too low.

Trump has said before that nobody knows what is up or down. He was only talking about himself and his supporters.

That's really kind of the end of it, then. Can't govern like that.

I think Bill Maher said it awhile back - the republic isn't going to work if the liberals say we want a X dollars for infrastructure and the response is "Democrats eat babies".

Republicans right now have no discernable defining principles.

I have thought the exact same thing - like what is a republican right now? A Trump supporter that hates democrats and thinks America is weak? There isn't a single fundamental principle that the republicans can point to that unites them outside of that - and they are STILL going to take the House next year. That's a horrifying thought. Being tied to a party without a policy means that you go with whatever the leaders of the party say. MTG is a prime example of this. Whatever she says at the time is the party principle for her constituents.

True, the party needs a leader they can unite behind. Having 17 candidates 2 years from now will not be a recipe for success. And the most extreme will have too much an opportunity to win the nomination.

Both parties are being successfully defined by their extremes. Liberals want to point out MTG and conservatives like to point out Cori Bush and Ilan Omar

I’m hoping he runs his course by then. Maybe I’m naive.
Unless he's incapacitated or in jail, I think he runs because of sheer unwillingness to ever admit to any weakness or loss. The party will let him because it's his party for the foreseeable future and he will win the nomination because 1) no on wants to run against him and 2) those that do have to be willing to criticize him which they all think won't play well in the primary.

He's already incapacitated, doesn't seem to bother his fans.
