Republicans cannot be a part of the present Republican Party unless they are willing to lie....

...and to kiss the ass of Donald Trump. They understand that is what they must do if they are to remain a part of the Trump Party.

They have to go along with the Big Lie that Trump won the election. Otherwise, they are not accepted by the base of their Party. They are outcasts.

Mitt Romney was booed at the GOP Convention in Utah. (This was the Republican that ran for President in 2012) Liz Cheney was criticized for greeting Biden with a "fist bump" at his speech before the Congress a few nights ago. No one is welcome in that Party unless they swear loyalty to the Fuhrer.

Their bonds to the Republican Party are very strong. It is very much like a cult. Even before Trump, it was very cultish. They have been programmed very heavily by right -wing radio and media. They see Democrats as "evil liberals" and could never compromise or vote with those infidels.

So they are stuck. They are Senators and Congressmen without a Party. It is either the Trump Party or nothing. There is no other choice. They are in a box.

1. Let's seal that box shut and

Drop it in the middle of the pacific ocean.

Or we could cram it into a dumpster and catch it on fire. 🔥

5. This defies Logic.

What do the Trumpers want the non-Trumper Republicans to do about "The Big Lie"? Trump lost. No do-over election(s). Are the non-Trumper Republicans supposed to check in with Trump before they vote every time and send out a press release? What?
