Fascism

Fascism

Conservatives champion the oligarchs and the greed that fuels them.

The question has been raised and I have to agree: the Republican Party is not a political party but operates nowadays as a cult of greed, mendacity, and unabated selfishness. Why is the Republican Party still a thing?

FascismBut the Republican Party is not really the cause of the demise of the American Democracy. They can blatantly lie, but people need to believe the lies for them to be effective; they can openly cheat and steal, but people have to uncritically believe that everybody does it; they can spout some mumbo-jumbo and syphon off the wealth of this country to further enrich the few, but this requires a lot of people to smile, bend-over, and spread ’em.
