Every Republican I hear from seems to have an issue with accountability.

It's as if they don't want to bother taking any responsibility for anything they say or do. My spouse has a Republican boss. This boss has zero interest in anything that even smells like accountability. This pattern is certainly all over the Republicans in congress. They seem to think anything they want to do is just fine and if there are any consequences for their behaviors, it must be some liberal plot to destroy them.

Is it some kind of rule that to be a Republican, you have to rid yourself of any type of personal responsibility? They do love the word freedom. They simply ignore that part of freedom that deals with personal responsibility and accountability. You can't have true freedom without a good measure of responsibility and accountability in any social setting. Children are taught this at a young age. You learn this in just about any school setting. Do these people come with an anti-accountability filter?

I feel as if the Republicans in America are the Neanderthals and the rest of us are Cro-Magnon. They are simply a evolutionary dead end and are doomed to extinction through the process of natural selection. They are even too dumb to believe in evolutionary theory. I won't miss them.

1. Trump said that out loud. "I don't take responsibility. "

2. Unwillingness to take responsibility is right out of The Fascist Handbook For Dummies.

They all are begging to be locked up so let's not deny them that!

3. Do as I say, not as I do...

Has been a plank for the authoritarians since the stone age.

I suppose it's to remind the unwashed uppity classes they live by a different double standard.

4. The stupidity and meanness has been festering for decades...

Accountability means responsibility beforehand. It requires a higher level of humanity, integrity, moral character and grace.

All qualities totally nonexistent in today’s Republican Party, media and leaders.

Take deep breaths and buckle up.

5. And it is not only that

The attack others for the very things that they are doing, and they change the rules of the game as frequently as they need to make their points. It is if they live in the present moment only and that the past does not exist.

6. The Right are the Chimpanzees and we're the Bonobo's ...

Other than the child molesting thing that bonobo's do, of course.

That's them too.

Their mindset is purely about themselves and what they consider to be 'mine, or of me'. They don't care about things like 'society', 'humanity', 'our wild animal cousins', 'the planet', etc.

These larger social constructs and concepts are not part of their built-in thought processes. That which is not serving of them and theirs are foreign enemies to them, instinctually.

It's a simpler, reptile-like mindset, really.
