23. I have come to believe that the Republican Party is an amoral party

Dedicated to maintaining its hold on power and serving kleptocracy. The Republican Party has thrown the interests of the average man and woman in the USunder the bus, shamelessly prostitutes itself to the fossil fuel industry and banksters, and has ceased to give a ratís rump about the long-term interests of the people and the republic of the United States of America. Their professions of patriotism and devotion to the US Constitution are hollowed-out fables and their leadership aspires to service.the oligarchy, not the common man and woman.

The willingness of todayís Republican Party to plot with agents of unfriendly powers shamefully demonstrates that this is not a party devoted to the republic of the USA, but a corrupt, Latin-American-style oligarchical Party. In sum, a banana Republican Party.

I do not say this lightly. I come from a family of older-school Republicans, ones that were genuine patriots and feared the rise of authoritarianism. Nevertheless I believe what I just wrote is true.
