Paul Krugman: The G.O.P. Goes Full Authoritarian

In a recent op-ed posting, Paul Krugman succinctly states how the GOP has undermined voting rights, co-opted the mainstream media and rigged elections to ensure they don't lose and retain a supermajority even when they do. It's shocking to see how the party of Lincoln has morphed into the party of authoritarianism. They have become an enormous threat to the future of our democracy.

Whether or Not He Helped Mueller, Mike Flynn is a Traitor Who Deserves to Be Vilified for Life

Especially, given his military service and the oaths he took to defend our country, Flynn's betrayal of our country for a buck is all the more treacherous. He deserves to live under a rock, in disgrace, for the rest of his days.

Has Anyone Noticed How the GOP Appears to Exhibit Many Symptoms of NPD?

It's not just Trump who is a malignant narcissist. The entire GOP appears to lack empathy, takes advantage of others to get what they want, has a grandiose sense of entitlement, and on down the list of NPD symptoms. Their toxicity and scorched earth tactics have contaminated our entire political process and along with it, our country. Thankfully, we made enormous progress this past November with the Big Blue Wave. Voting them entirely out of office looks like the only recourse for our country's survival.
