The Republican Party CAN NOT GOVERN. They can get into office by cheating, suppressing votes, gerrymandering, election fraud, trampling on the will of voters, getting help from hostile foreign powers like Russia and seedy data miners. But once in office, THEY. CAN. NOT. GOVERN.
Has our government EVER in the history of the United States been SHUT DOWN when ONE party controls ALL THREE BRANCHES ie: entire government? I don't think it has. And why now? Because the Republican Party CAN NOT GOVERN. They know how to cheat to "win" but they can't do the job.
They can NOT keep the economy healthy. They have crashed it almost every time they were in control of it. They can NOT do healthcare (other than to DENY IT to all but rich people). They don't even BELIEVE in climate change.
They can NOT do foreign policy -- they can start wars but seem to have forgotten how to end them (or just don't care to). They can NOT build a healthy middle class because they ONLY represent the very wealthy and their interests.
Without a healthy middle class our economy is VERY UNSTABLE and subject to major crashes every decade if not more often. What CAN they do and do well? They can get themselves into office by hook or crook. They can get Russia to help them.
They can get seedy, unethical data mining companies to help them manipulate people via social media. They can suppress the ability of Americans to vote. They can commit blatant election fraud, trample on the will of voters who elect Democrats ...
...by passing power-grabbing legislation in lame duck sessions to remove the newly elected Democrats' power....and by God they can gerrymander the HELL out of state congressional districts, but they CAN. NOT. GOVERN.
Because Republicans prefer oligarchy and fascism to a republic or a democracy, they can NOT regulate corporations to prevent predatory corporate behavior that crashes economies, poisons our water, soil and food and hurts the middle class and workers.
The outdated slave-owner-protecting electoral college protects Republicans even when they LOSE elections. BUT. REPUBLICANS. CAN. NOT. GOVERN. I've never seen them do it in my lifetime and I'm guessing I never will.
GUESS WHO was in charge when the Great Depression hit? REPUBLICANS. GUESS WHO was in charge when the Great Recession hit in 2007-2008? REPUBLICANS. GUESS WHAT is going to happen now, again? And the #MAGAts good old boy DONALD TRUMP is gunning for it.
He's already told America that if he doesn't get his precious WALL, he's going to crash the economy! And why not? HE will make a fortune off of that. So will the other billionaires, big corporations and big banks. But the rest of Americans will be left with a smoldering ruins.
BECAUSE. REPUBLICANS. CAN. NOT. GOVERN. They can RULE like dictators and kings - precisely what we DECLARED INDEPENDENCE FROM in 1776. BUT. THEY. CAN. NOT. GOVERN. >If you want a functioning government ELECT DEMOCRATS.< They're the only ones who've ever been able to do it.
