Oh, they spread the terror of rampant crime, soaring inflation and social decay at every turn. Has anybody heard of a workable solution from any Republican?
Shipping migrants across the country to punish sanctuary cities does nothing to solve the border crisis caused by changing migration pattersns due to climate change. Blaming Democrats for soaring crime in major cities just to terrify farm folk in the hinterlands is counterproductive to everybody. Yes cities have more people and therefore more crime, but that doesn’t explain a naked fact made crystal clear on public access channels that Republican red states have a higher crime rate than Democratic blue and purple state homes to big cities. Cities don’t exist and thrive without their supportive structures.
In reality. facts support the Democratic view of America’s future. Still, Republican candidates who are clearly unfit for office stay terrifyingly competetive because of the ramrod factor.
Ever since Donald Trump bulldozed his way into hijacking the conservative Republican party, his line had to be toed in order to stay politically alive in that party. While Donald Trump has his supporters among world demagogues, at-home sycophants and vulnerable domestic malcontents, actuaal data shows him to be far from a nice person.
For starters, Trump is notorious for not paying workers lured into serving his needs. Anybody who’s ever been stiffed in any way should get a jolt of indignation about such treatment. Survivors of the failed Trump Atlantic City project in the 1980’s still do. Quite possibly, contractors and laborers still emerging from bankruptcies from the Trump debacle bristle when Republicans bash Democrats mercilessly just to hop to and keep Trump relevant in a world that has rapidly moved beyond his ruthless mode of operation in a unifying world full of heart.
Brazil just dumped the Trump clone that gave free access to destroying the Rain Forest essential for maintaining global climate equilibrium. Women in Iran defy a punitive patriarchy even though it costs them their lives. Ukrainians with Western help spearheaded by America expose the impotence behind the Russian bombast hatched in concert with American blowhard Trump.
In short, the stale old guard has lost its foothold. All it can do is mount a ramrod campaign to strike terror and forestall a progressive new order. Nevertheless, no matter how sad, pathetic and ridiculous they seem, 2022 Republicans are still foerce. The Democrat response seems a no-brainer. Fight back confidently with fact. Gentle derision in the Obama mode can help.
