The only "plan" the republicans ever had was herd immunity.

It still is. If he and all of his supporters knew that he was positive before the debate, then this is a Jonestown level kool-aid event. They know the jig is up, and they have no way out.

But if everyone is reeling from a mass outbreak right here at home, after itís all over, they can claim to have been pivotal in getting us through, and can spin whatever seems favorable to them as weíre picking up the pieces.

Knowingly passing along a potentially fatal virus? Willfully? Aside from the morally repugnant aspect that is going to register with many voters, Iíd imagine thereís even some legal nuances here that can be shaken out.

But the timing here sucks for them, from the SCOTUS nomination to the election itself, itís time to be very concerned about what they potentially will do next. Because theyíve shown what they really care about and what theyíre prepared to do to get their way. Unless there was any question that they believed in honor, in fair play, in what the constitution represents, their actions of late have removed all doubt.

They donít care about America, they only want their theocracy.
They donít care about you, only they matter (true sociopaths).
They have no honor, and will lie, cheat, steal, and kill to get their way.

What atrocity are they preparing to retain their grip on power? You can bet itís in the works, itís coming.

10. How to get their base to see that though?

Even now, the most outrageous responses are being aired. They may all be Russian bots, but thereís his base, tuning in and turning on.

Education didnít work, they wonít be learnimified.

I donít get how the herd immunity plan was a go when it was apparent from the start that half the population was going to take precautions - and from their political standpoint, the wrong half.

Theyíre not smart enough to approach it from Thanosí perspective.

2. They had no plan

Even a herd immunity strategy wouldn't follow what the Republicans were doing. There was no plan, even a bad one, for dealing with Covid.

12. See I thought originally the plan was to corner the market on the financial aspect of the pandemic.

How many doses of hydroxyshite did the government buy for how much?

3. Herd immunity - the equivalent to letting all of the California

Forest burn to prevent further fires.
If people die and homes destroyed, it is what it is.

6. I don't even think the legal aspects are "nuances".

I think they are guilty of murder.

7. They don't even have THAT. Herd immunity is not a plan. It is an outcome.

Their "plan," such as it was, was to do nothing of substance and ignore/downplay the illnesses and deaths as much as possible.

9. If Trump dies it is just culling the herd. That's nature

getting rid of the old and the weak.
