We can laugh and mock, but it speaks to a rejection of fundamental democratic principles that are becoming dogma on the right.
the only hope is probably that the virus will wipe out just enough of these people that they won't be able to have the numbers to enact their fascist plans.

I guess if you believe deep down that the first rule of politics decrees the odds should be stacked in favour of the wealthiest and most powerful, then this is how it would seem to you. What happened in Georgia would have been a particular affront. Half of those people probably shouldn't even be allowed to vote!

Might end up somewhat compensating for the declining birth rate, but that would be something at least.

You can't make this stuff up. Clearly not the sharpest tools in the shed.

I guess it's suggestive that they sincerely believed they didn't do anything wrong, morally or criminally. But it's also suggestive that they really had no fucking idea what they were doing, that this was romantic adventurism. Which is to say, a bunch of fucking dupes sold a bag of patriot beans.
