2. Somewhat like what a disgruntled

Trump voter said a couple of years ago:

Hes not hurting the people he needs to be.

3. This statement illustrates the difference between Representative Democracy and mob rule.

Unlike Edmund Burke, who believed that "part of the duty of a representative was not simply to communicate the wishes of the electorate but also to use their own judgement in the exercise of their powers, even if their views are not reflective of those of a majority of voters," this guy just wants the wishes of the angry mob carried out.

5. So, they aren't even pretending that

they are decent or want our country to do well, they are just cravenly grasping for power to destroy our nation for their own personal enrichment and amusement.

That's what I get from this guy.

7. Well, they didn't bother with a party platform at the convention...

It was basically: "Support Dear Leader in whatever he wants to do."

6. Translation into English

PA GQP official: We sent (Toomey) to do the bidding of a savage, lawless tyrant who we back.

9. Amazingly enough, sometimes people say exactly what they mean.

They didn't want Toomey to "do the right thing." They want Toomey to support Trump. This statement would indicate that these two things are mutually exclusive.

11. it's all about hating and owning the libs, that is their agenda and nothing more.

They voted for the orange one because he was the one they could get to hurt and own us.
