  1. It has never been about small government or fiscal responsibility. It has been about preserving the white man’s place at the top.  The GOP has been on this path since they adopted the southern strategy under Nixon. Anyone who doesn’t see that has not been paying attention. 45 is a symptom not the cause. And members of the Republican party have done absolutely nothing to stop his behavior and too often actively encouraged it.

    It is shameful that they were not all arrested yesterday instead of being allowed to leave afterwards to go party at their hotels.

     I agree things will get better once Biden takes office and we no longer have cowardly yes men and woman in charge of our institutions.   But things won’t get truly better until we acknowledge the toll racism, especially casual racism so many white people refuse to see, is taking on our country.  Yes, the crackpots are a problem. But everyone who shrugs and says oh well is the bigger problem.

    And I am not a conspiracy believer, but who is to say there was no one semi-competent who planted computer viruses or bugs yesterday. They seem to have been all over the building with no one stopping them.  At a minimum it’s something that needs to be looked at.
