    “The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.” -- Adolf Hitler

    As I ponder the Republican Party trending towards fascism, it is the fear factor that is prominent. As most psychologists and social scientists note, conservatives brains having a higher propensity to fear. Fear is a conservative weapon on the masses, but can only be effectively administered by those who fear the most.

    Tuesday brain farts from across the pond...

    Based on nearly all reporting, the leaders of Republican party don't like Trump, and there is strong undercurrent that they would like to see him not run for re-election, or simply loose the election. They wouldn't mind loosing the presidency if they controlled both the House and Senate. Even then they can block SC nominations indefinitely or force a Democratic president to nominate their hand picked nominee. McConnel would blocked indefinitely, even if it cost him a re-election.

    Trump is not the Great Leader they have been looking for since Ronald Regan (who was not that great). Trump keeps them in line and mostly quiet because they fear he will blow up the entire party. They can see Trump is one bad decision away from shooting a massive hole in the country that will take decades to recover from, and if he does, The country will blame the Republicans for not keeping the MF under control.

    It would not surprise me that if a smoking gun ever surfaces, it come from Republicans efforts to find it. They might find it, and hand it over to Democrats or the media so that Republicans don't take the blame for undermining their own candidate.

    Yes Trump is an embarrassment to many in the Republican Party. Yet some of Trump's most outspoken critics of the past are now some of his most loyal supporters...Lindsay Graham, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio. Sheesh.

    Indeed there are few, that for unknown reasons, have flipped. They have done a total 180 in terms of their disdain for Trump, to diehard supporters that stand behind Trump 110%. I tend to think they are simply opportunists that want to advance their own careers and willing to sell their soul to get closer to the top of the pile [of shit]. Graham willing to take a piss on the grave of John McCain if asked. Ted Cruz willing give his wife to Trump in trade to be in Trump's good graces. I can see Trump needling Cruz, by saying crude things about Ted Cruz's wife knowing Cruz will sit there and take it: "Your wife might not be a hot trophy wife like mine, but I bet she cleans your house better than any maid" or "Ted, My coke is getting warn, would you mind going down the hall and get me some ice"... I have truly worked with men like Trump, and and they say that kind of shit to people who are under their control.
