Default The GOP Knows The End Is Near

Republicans are looting the store, taking everything they can grab off the shelves, anticipating the demise of Donald Trump as progressive energy explodes.It's like the Watts riot...grab whatever you can get outta town before you get burnt.Even Goldman Sachs Ambassador to the tRump administration, Treasury Secretary Steve Munchkin is worried. That’s why he and Goldman Sachs ex CFO Gary Cohn (Director of the National Economic Council) cooked up this tRump tax plan. So they could grab the dough and run before the big dummy gets perk walked from the White House, in cuffs.

< Republicans in Congress, as well as people surrounding Donald Trump’s inner circle in the White House, clearly know something. They’re trying to get everything they can, looting the store, taking everything off the shelves like it’s the end times. The walls are closing in as the special counsel investigation continues unabated ― causing some in the GOP to to try to damage it ― and as the Resistance becomes supercharged, expanding the Democrats’ chances of making big wins in 2018.

The GOP has even lost its last fig leaf of moderation―Maine senator Susan Collins―who’s been having a meltdown in the past few days after being exposed in much of the media, having voted for the Trump tax scam and not received in return promised votes on shoring up Obamacare markets. (Now GOP leaders are telling her they will come in 2018...sure.) Collins, who voted for Trump’s most misogynistic judicial nominees, hostile to a woman’s right to choose, has devolved into claiming she’s now a victim of an “unbelievably sexist” media, sounding every bit like what the alt-right would call a whiny snowflake.>

<Trump’s base has shrunk and slowly keeps eroding and nothing is bringing it back. >

<all of this means that, as horrifying and demoralizing as the current climate is, and as damaging as this tax scam will be for years to come, progressives and Democrats must stay committed and determined because of a very real shot at beating the crap out of the GOP at the ballot box in 2018. And Trump may be taken down, either before finishing his term or in 2020 (if he’s not taken down by the GOP first in GOP presidential primaries).>

<Undoing the catastrophic damage that Trump and the GOP have created since the start of the Trump presidency will take years. Some of it may be impossible to undo, something the GOP is banking on. But it seems pretty clear that if progressives stay energized and don’t let up, Democrats will take back power. And it seems even more clear the GOP knows that.>

Sounds like wishful thinking with absolutely no relevant data.

The GOP and everyone else SHOULD KNOW that - ESPECIALLY - in a society like our own, money MUST MOVE to maintain such.

Sure, Salty, that must be it. Couldn't be the message, poor candidates, anything like that

And the Russians, don't forget the Russians.
