    A Democratic Republic or Athoritarianism?

    Which do you support:

    Today it is clear we are living in a new normal. The current Senators, under the leadership of McConnell has demonstrated that one person can have a major impact on our form of government. There is no doubt that Authoritarianism is now, with no thanks to 51 Senators, a new form of governance, i.e. Trumpism.

    IMO, Trumpism is akin to fascism, and a reader with an open mind and who has watched the behavior of Trump and McConnell will see much similarity to these 14 points:

    I think on the list provided Trump misses three points: Obsession with security, religion and military worship. These he just plays lip service to.

    However the Republican Party platform fits the entire list to a T. I think they're a little blindsided by this incompetent populist grabbing control of the party's easily led base, but they probably want to hold on till a more competent nationalist/authoritarian from their own ranks comes up and can actually lead as well, can actually hide some of his craziness and gain broader appeal. Then the world is in trouble.

    I support a Democratic Republic, not Trumpism or Authoritarianism, which I consider one and the same.

    I was disgusted by the display of the Trump cultists in the sham "trial". I honestly thought in the beginning that, with all the evidence already presented, that enough of the repugs would vote to at least reveal the hidden documents and allow testimony from key first-hand witnesses to his corruption and conduct a fair trial.

    They all exposed their blind loyalty to a corrupt president and violated their oaths, their country and the American people. I have voted in the past on both sides of the aisle, but witnessing what I saw in the United States government by the repugs disgusted me. They care nothing about the country, the constitution and the rule of law. They have no spines, character or conscience.

    Now they continue to look the other way while Trump removes loyal patriots who served their country well. They have sold their souls to serve only one cult leader, I can only hope that they all pay in the end for their disservice to the United States of America. I refuse to vote for any repug, they are not patriotic, they are not honest and they are anti-American. I give Romney some credit, but honestly, it seemed like too little too late. I do wish him well, Trump will try to retaliate that he didn't kneel down for him, and Trump's thugs may just take him out one day....nothing would surprise me with the POS in office and his cultists.

    democrats are the biggest authoritarianist there are.
    the only cult is the one going on with democrats at this point in time.

    they want to control your healthcare
    control where you live
    control how much money you can have
    control what you eat
    control what you can drive
    control how you can protect yourself.

    you leftist and your silly claims amuse me.
    facts don't care about your feelings.

    Another Trump term will put America into an authoritarian state, and win the Dems win in 2024 they will not take it back to the Republic, but instead lock down a one-party majoritarian state.
    Russian trolls and their supporters go on Ignore, automatically: no second chance.

    OK then explain your issue. Let's start with number one: "They want to control your healthcare." Compared to what?

    Tell us about Trumpublican Healthcare, how it will be much better than the ACA and how quality and accessibility will measurably increase while costs decrease.

    I don't think the government should be involved in healthcare. it is none of their business how i treat myself.
    it is none of their business what kind of insurance i have or what doctor i can go see or what procedure i need.
    their only responsibility should be to ensure that dangerous drugs are not making it onto the market.

    Re: A Democratic Republic or Athoritarianism?

    There is no way I would support Trumpism. I have felt that we have, for some time, been sliding down the road of authoritarian fascism. Trump is accelerating this even faster. I have always said that Trump is the status quo without brakes or filter. We need to get back to a restricted, limited, Democratic Republic. Not sure if we will, seems the cat is out of the bag, as it were. But I certainly don't want to be sprinting to Corporate-Capitalistic Authoritative Fascism. AKA Trumpism.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
