    I don't think Trump took Barr's advice because 1. he cannot control the Frankenstein he made and 2. His goal was not governance, it
    was establishing his empire to exploit power of the government to fix his secret money problems.

    Going into Trump's motivations is going to earn some people their masters and/or doctorate degrees in politics and psychology/psychiatry.

    Why the rest of the party is following a fucking moron is ripe for exploration too. IMO, it's because all, except for a very few with Liz leading, are afraid of both losing their jobs and of being whacked or terrorized by their own creation. Most, no doubt, have seen/read Frankenstein and what happened to the Doctor when he refused to do as the Monster demanded.**

    As for Trump, he delusional and thrives on chaos. He wants to unleash the Monster and let it wreak havoc in the false belief that he'll be around to pick up the pieces. This is the same delusional bullshit Charlie Manson had with his Helter Skelter plot. Trump being irrational cannot be reasoned with except in the narrow window of "what's in it for him". Money is his big motivator with losing the majority, if not all, of his remaining fortune being equal to doubling it.




    **the book and the movie end differently but both are bad for Doctor Frankenstein.

    Democracy works


    Let the people decide
    Imbalance is never good because people, being self-serving assholes at heart, will always trend toward what is best for the majority even if it costs the minority.

    For most people, it comes down to out-of-sight, out-of-mind. Sure, they want to help those starving kids in Africa and will toss a couple dollars into a bucket, but that doesn't stop them from buying ivory, diamonds and other exotic things which are the cause of those children who are starving due to war.

    Make that "the Republican Party of 2021" and I'll agree with you. It's only been shifting that way since after Vietnam.

    There is no GOP. The Grand Old Party died of a thousand cuts beginning with Newt and ending with Trump, specifically November 2018.

    Anyone who believes only one party has all the fucking morons is obviously a fucking moron for the opposing party. Jus' sayin'.

    Hello Dutch,

    Quote Originally Posted by Dutch Uncle View Post

    In Woodward's book, Bill Barr recognized the problems and attempted to persuade Trump to temper the excesses and rhetoric to avoid driving away moderate Republicans and Independents. Trump refused and lost the election while the Republican Party moved further into Conspiracy Theory territory.

    Saying "78% of Republicans believe Biden didn't win the election" isn't as significant as it appears when people realize that Republicans only constitute 28% of the voters with less than 22% of voters believing in RWNJ conspiracy theories to "Stop the Steal".

    As JPP's Trumpers continue to push lies and conspiracy theories, sane people are re-evaluating their political affiliation. Despite Trump handing the Democrats the White House, the Senate and the House in 2020, the Republican Party continues to push anything Trump wants.

    These excesses are hamstringing the Republican Party at best and dooming it at worst. This, IMO, is bad for America since our nation is best when there is a sane conservative view in Congress. That sane conservative view is rare both in Congress and on JPP. This is not good for America, folks.

    Trumpers drinking the Kool-Aid are pushing sane conservatives away under the delusion that those sane conservatives will never, ever vote Democrat. While that part is probably true, what the Trumpers are not seeing is those same sane conservatives simply refusing to vote at all. Elections are about voter turnout and the current Republican Party is pushing conservatives to stay home in November 2022.


    Bill Barr was right about this
    According to Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in their tell-all book "Peril," Barr told Trump: "There are a lot of people out there, independents and Republicans in the suburbs of the critical states, that think you're an asshole" and "don't care about your fucking grievances." Barr went on and told the President that if he didn't soften his tone and turn his attention to concerns about Covid-19 and the economy, which these critical "swing" voters cared about most, he was going to lose the election.

    Trump, however, refused to pivot -- just like arch-conservative California recall candidate Larry Elder, who was similarly chastised by establishment Republicans who felt a moderate more in the mold of their party's last governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or Massachusetts' Charlie Baker and Vermont's Phil Scott, would have the necessary crossover appeal to have a shot in a Democratic state. And whether it was out of stubbornness or insensitivity or some other game plan, they paid a steep price for their insouciance.

    Trump and Elder reaffirmed -- for both parties -- that turning competitive suburbs from "purple" to "blue" is very bad for Republicans' business. As demographic shifts add to the Democratic advantage in these once-reliably Republican counties, such as Fairfax in Virginia and Montgomery and Delaware in Pennsylvania, alienating "swing" suburban voters could continue to cost them in national, state and local elections.

    These voters, especially in competitive states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan and North Carolina, remain the gatekeepers any presidential candidate must pass if they expect the keys to the White House. They also determine who bangs the gavel in the US House. Most of the 40 or so competitive districts are fought in the "Crabgrass Frontier" between city and country.
    The right wing spin machine Fox talk pundits will instill and nurture enough hatred to drive viewers to the polls to hold their hose and vote Republican.

    They vote for Trump like they shop at Walmart. They do not like the experience but they think it's the right choice. Much of it is due to peer pressure, too. They feel more comfortable believing another person on social media than a professional reputable news report.
