6. This is further proof that Republicans want a Dictator.

This is the current state of their party. They favor strongmen who focus all of their energy on aesthetics and fake social hierarchies vs. honoring norms and maximizing freedom and economic mobility.

They are not small government Republicans. They are Fascists. Check out Umberto Eco’s “Ur Fascism.”

“There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and accepted as the Voice of the People.”
