That is because the GOP de-govern to put pressure points on voters so they stop

voting rationally and follow a mob where ever the mob looks like it is going.

Or they don't want Democrats to live long. So they can't vote, get ss or Medicare,

and so they become way poorer. Basically destroy the middle class and any power it has.

Authoritarians turn democracies into their own colonies to be corrupted from the inside.

No surprise someone like her is corrupt and in this scenario the middle class are the Indigenous people to be made powerless by ruining realtor protocol. Is the daughter qualified? Will it hurt her customers? Will it hurt the realtor whose place she took. Thousands of little hits to democracy.

And that they want to gut social security and Medicare that will

force today's seniors, who were the generation to leave a lot of wealth to their children, well they'll have to go into savings if they have any. If not then they'll have to borrow from their kids to survive. This is about the GOP wanting 'snow walkers'. Snow Walkers is a Farley Mowatt story about an elderly arctic inuit who walk away from their home one winter night and perish so they do not use up the resources of the younger generation. The ultimate sacrifice. The GOP sure are focused on the bad fare of the aged in the USA. But it will sap the younger middle class too. People should know that. It is a money and power grab some more.

He's focused on the former MAGAs or soon to be former MAGAs.

It used to be Republicans did perpetual campaigning. Now they do perpetual cold

war, and sometimes a hot war like Jan 6th.

She seems to be referencing what Rick Scott talked about sunsetting:

SS and Medicare. Just guessing.

Thanks. I will keep my eyes open for The Guardian Newspaper stories. Great ownership model.

I hope other journalism groups do the same. Here in Canada I hope the cbc (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation - government owned and run given a mandate) does something. The right wing has been campaigning to shut it down for years because it is partially government funded and makes people smart. We needed it to have a distinct voice for such a big country. Some of its shows make it on to NPR. Without it we would just be a GOP clone country. I've had cab drivers say it gives them an education. I hope some billionaire steps up and buys it and turns it into a trust too.

Texas was going to turn blue but then Roe vs. Wade was overturned

and all sorts of christo-fascist laws and freedom for AR-15s has happened of late. Is the whole thing to make living in red states so uncomfortable that the liberal voters leave? To keep Liberals from moving there and diluting the MAGA mob? Are they trying to turn purple Georgia red? Is the civil war on universities De Santis is waging meant to turn youth from blue places off studying in Florida? They have already turned off immigration. Unpalatable politics everywhere. What do they care if they are guaranteed 2 Senators from each state.
