Ten Signs That Republicans Want To Destroy Our Democracy To Retain Power

Submitted by Robin Messing on Tue, 07/19/2022 - 5:25pm

This post is going to be extremely disjointed--consider it a collection of data points with one overarching theme. Today's Republican Party knows that its policies are unpopular and that the only way they can stay in power is to destroy our democracy. The LAST thing they want is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Instead, many of them want our country to become a White Christo-nationalist one-party state where the Republicans maintain a permanent lock on power. In other words, they want our country to become a tyranny of the minority. A common talking point among those who want to destroy our democracy is to say "We're a republic, not a democracy." If you hear someone say that, then shove this column down their throat.

 

And now, without further ado, ten signs that Republicans want to destroy our democracy.
