” Never forget that Russia chose the REPUBLICAN party to destroy America. Why? Because they knew they would sell their souls for power and money.” ~@Leeanna Ernest~
I read an article by Max Boot in the Washington Post today, and in it he rightly pointed out that the republican party has turned into a “quasi-fascist party” in service to its leader, Donald trump.
The signs are everywhere. If you watched the impeachment hearings last week and the sycophantish behavior being displayed by the GOP members of congress who questioned the impeachment witnesses, you would know what I am referring to.
They were not playing to the millions of American watching, they were clearly playing to an audience of one: Their dear leader. The man with whom they have made a Faustian bargain to sell their souls for who knows what.
Today Rick Perry pretty much confirmed what I wrote above by declaring that Donald trump was chosen by God to lead us.
“Over the weekend, outgoing Secretary of Energy Rick Perry sat down with Fox & Friends host Ed Henry to share his belief that Donald Trump, a thrice-married serial philanderer accused by multiple women of sexual assault, is God’s “chosen one,” echoing language Trump has previously used to describe himself. ” ‘If you’re a believing Christian, you understand God’s plan for the people who rule and judge over us on this planet and our government,’ ” he says he told the president.
What’s scary is that trump himself believes this nonsense, and he is starting to act accordingly.
I honestly do not believe that America could survive twelve years of trump. Heck three years has seemed like thirty under the rule of this lunatic. But there are many in this country who are probably thinking that they can’t live without him being in power. He is, after all, God’s chosen one.
Hey, maybe God did choose him. It is said that God works in mysterious ways.
