Why Have No Republicans Turned on Trump?

Why Have No Republicans Turned on Trump?

Thom Hartmann / Independent Media Institute

There is a very simple reason why some Republicans voted for the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump.

That reason is a corrupted U.S. Supreme Court.

In 1976 (Buckley v. Valeo) and 1978 (First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti), the Supreme Court ruled that when corporations and billionaires purchase their very own politicians, it is constitutionally protected “free speech” rather than “bribery,” which is how we defined it from the beginning of our republic until 1976. In 2010, the Supreme Court doubled down on its betrayal of American democracy with its Citizens United decision.

The GOP has been compromised.  They no longer believe in the concept of a democratic society and have embraced authoritarianism.  It will take a civil war to save our republic.

I BELIEVE NO GOPer HAS TURNED ON HIM BECAUSE THEY KNOW HE IS NOT NOR DOES HE OPERATE LIKE A TRADITIONAL POLITICIAN.  HE HAS AND ACTS MORE LIKE A MOB BOSS WHO WILL EXACT RETRIBUTION WHEN CROSSED. HOWEVER, I BELIEVE THE DAY IS COMING VERY SOON THAT THEY WILL SEE THE "EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES" AND WILL TURN ON HIM LIKE A PACK OF SHARKS ON ONE OF THEIR OWN, WHO IS ACCIDENTLY WOUNDED AND BLEEDING.  :popcorn:

TRUMP HAS BEEN WOUNDED BY THE IMPEACHMENT ACTIONS AND THE GOPers ARE SIMPLY WATCHING TO SEE THE EXTENT OF THAT WOUNDING.

GOP support is as high as ever, not sure how you arrive at that. If our elections were based on majority vote then yes I agree.  The Electoral College makes things dicey and no elected republicans are jumping ship.  Not running does nothing as several have done.

The solution seems easy to me, the Senate needs to grow a pair and convict him. There will be outrage, but they can present the evidence in a manner their constituents will understand and believe. Of course not all will, the neo-Nazi's and similar, but reasonable people will get it.

Trump and his loyalists control the RNC and all funding. Those GOP officials need money for their reelection

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
