5. This is a great article

that you don't see talked about enough, that Hillary raised with the 'basket of deplorables' speech. Any time anyone tries to raise the issue of the rot within the Republican base (and not just with the leaders or RW media) there is immediate pushback of 'Why are you demonizing regular Americans?' and so the conversation ends.

The fact remains that this is who GOP voters are: 75% or more of Republicans (who are not just the far right, but your typical Reagan Republican) believe in Trump's Big Lie. About 70% want Trump to run again in 2024.

This is not just a difference of political opinion, but of a struggle of democracy vs autocracy, and autocrats cannot (should not) be respected or reasoned with.
