This is the guy that the "law and order" and "Constitutionalist" Republicans want to put back in the WH!
Trump and allies plot revenge, Justice Department control in a second term
Advisers have also discussed deploying the military to quell potential unrest on Inauguration Day. Critics have called the ideas under consideration dangerous and unconstitutional.
"Donald Trump and his allies have begun mapping out specific plans for using the federal government to punish critics and opponents should he win a second term, with the former president naming individuals he wants to investigate or prosecute and his associates drafting plans to potentially invoke the Insurrection Act on his first day in office to allow him to deploy the military against civil demonstrations."
"The Republican Party, rent by internal divisions, has imploded. Far too many Republican elected officials are Trumpist authoritarians and White “Christian” nationalists. They have no interest in governing on behalf of the entirety of 'We the People'.
Worse yet our nation’s enemies thoroughly understand the extent to which America—the world’s dominant economic and military power—is hobbled by the political-religious polarization promoted by Donald J. Trump, Speaker Mike Johnson, Senators Ron Johnson, Josh Hawley, Tommy Tuberville and Rand Paul, and by Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz and others of their ideologically driven and anti-democracy ilk.
A democratic republic cannot survive unless its politicians for the most part speak the truth; unless they make at least some effort to educate voters, rather than manipulate their negative emotions to ensure election; unless they are dedicated to sense of fair play grounded in two fundamental principles: mutual toleration and institutional forbearance.
'Mutual toleration' refers to the idea that as long as our rivals play by constitutional rules, we accept that they have an equal right to exist, compete for power, and govern.
'Institutional forbearance'…means ‘patient self-control; restraint and tolerance,’ or ‘the action of restraining from exercising a legal right.’…[It] can be thought of as avoiding actions that, while respecting the letter of the law, obviously violate its spirit.”— How Democracies Die. by Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt
Republican mendacity, manipulative power politics, and abandonment of mutual toleration and institutional forbearance amply evidence that the GOP is no longer a party dedicated to democratic governance.
Republicans who exhibit some sense of fair play are driven from the GOP. Experienced 'moderate' republicans—those who occasionally dare to criticize Trump and compromise with Democrats—are at risk. Many of them are retiring in frustration and disgust."
