The Caucus of Sedition

The insurrectionists of January 6th allegedly received help, including lotf of planning meetings, from Rep. Marrjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas). Gosar reportedly floated the idea of blanket pardons for all concerned, which indicates that the above Congresscritters knew what was going to happen. Brooks was wearing body armor. Trump's Chief of Staff was "100% involved" in the planning.

It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out. But one thing is clear: Repub;icans have given up on democracy. If they can't steal an electrion through gerrymandering and Jim Crow-esqe voting obstacles, they are clearly ready to steal it by force.

I don't see Republicans giving up on their path of sedition. We may be one election away from losing our democracy.

And two of our own senators won't change the goddamn filibuster to let us pass federal voting standards.

Gosar (AZ) was the pardon peddler, not Gohmert (TX).

Who would have imagined that the fascists would glom on to a loser like tRump and come so close to taking over the country? He is a loser in every endeavor but they will run him as a Saint and a business expert and take over. They did once already.
We really have to put a stop to him, and them.
And, that's a problem with almost half of the voting public believing his horseshit.
I for one, really don't want to live in any more of a fascist country than we already have.
