    Looks like the rats finally noticed the _Trumptanic_ is sinking.

  4. Sorry, but keeping your opposition private as a public servant is exactly the same as not opposing..

    “What’s going to heal this country is people being more honest” is a nice sentiment, but I’m convinced the republican party has conditioned its voters to despise honesty.

  5. Honesty is a quality in extinction

  6. We do not want a fraud! this Sen. is a fraud! A little too late! I hope he goes down. Not there for the people!

  9. (T)raitorous (R)acist (U)nstable (M)ental (P)sychopath

    Don’t believe Cornyn! He’s the same one that wanted to sacrifice the elderly for the sake of the economy. take away his life preserver when then ship starts to take on water too!

  14. The Republican Party is now led by a kleptocratic crime boss who rules over the most scandal-ridden administration in history. Many of his closest advisers and associates have either been imprisoned or are facing prison time. Trump himself is trying to cheat in this election in order to stay in office and avoid prosecution. Nixon’s administration may have been  riddled with criminality—but in 1973, the Republican Party was still a somewhat normal party,  that still played by the rules, so Nixon was forced to resign. But not anymore. Those days are long gone.

    The corruption we see in the Republican party today can be defined as institutional depravity. It isn’t an occasional failure to uphold norms, but a consistent repudiation of them. It isn’t about dirty money so much as the pursuit and abuse of power—power as an end in itself, justifying almost any means.

    Taking away democratic rights—extreme gerrymandering; blocking an elected president from nominating a Supreme Court justice; selectively paring voting rolls and polling places; creating spurious anti-fraud commissions; misusing the census to undercount the opposition; calling lame-duck legislative sessions to pass laws against the will of the voters—is the Republican Party’s main political strategy.

    Republicans have chosen suppression and authoritarianism, because unlike the Dems, their party isn’t a coalition of interests in search of a majority. The Republican party of today, isn’t interested in what the majority of Americans want.

    Trump is now the grotesque face of the rot within the party itself. And it reeks of corruption, paranoia, fascism, wild conspiracy theories, racism and other types of hostility toward entire groups. Trump is no different than his authoritarian counterparts abroad: immoral, demagogic, hostile to institutional checks, demanding and receiving demagogic obedience and protection from the party, and knee-deep in the financial corruption that is integral to the political corruption of authoritarian regimes..

  15. What an analogy!! Cornyn would frame it using women. Dear John, bye-bye dude! And news flash…..we’re turning Texas blue!!

    • smc130 Turning Texas blue – I sure hope so! I live in rural Texas surrounded by huge trump placards and flags – everywhere. It turns my stomach. I got my sons to register recently, so I’m in effect tripling my vote. Doing what I can. Vote, people! Where’s your Texas pride. Don’t embarrass this state again.

    • @8brightside8 me too hope this will happen

    • @8brightside8 in Texas and voted blue last week. Phone banking in Texas and it’s been good news so far!!

  16. If America was the Titanic, with t’rump as the captain, he’d steer directly into the iceberg and then complain it was the iceberg’s fault.

  17. OMG. He is one of tRumps biggest ENABLERS. I AM A TEXAN AND I JUST VOTED HIM OUT. I CAN’T WAIT TO VOTE THE REST OF tRumps ENABLERS OUT. Abbott, Cruz and the rest of them. I WON’T FORGET WHAT THEY DID. VOTE FOR BIDEN-HARRIS. Stay safe and stay well. Thanks. Greetings from a senior from Texas. YOUNG PEOPLE PLEASE VOTE. Thanks.

  18. Thanks to Trump the GOP has regressed to the lowest common denominator on everything. The Republican party today is the very definition of a cult of personality. It stands for no special ideal. It possesses no organizing principle. It represents no detailed vision for governing. It has become the bane of America’s democratic republic.

    There’s a reason Lindsey Graham called Trump “krazy,” a “bigot” and a “kook” who’s “unfit for office.” There’s a reason Ted Cruz called Trump “a pathological liar” and “a narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen.” There’s a reason Marco Rubio observed that, “Every movement in human history that has been built on a foundation of anger and fear has been cataclysmic,” and warned of Trump’s rise, “This isn’t going to end well.”

    Trump has done considerable damage to America’s democratic institutions, and  brought the nation to the brink of civil catastrophe, and the Republican Party has protected him the entire way. Trump has left America grievously wounded, and now he’s asking for another chance to finish her off.

  19. I want to use the “rats leaving a sinking ship” analogy. But comparing Trump’s GOP apologists to rats….is an insult to rats.

  20. Remove every Republican senator who is on the ballot this year.
