The Autocracy Party (formerly known as, and still called, the Republican Party)

Remarks of Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) yesterday on the floor of the senate: “Right now, the most serious attempt to overthrow our democracy in the history of our of country is underway. Those who are pushing to make Donald Trump President, are engaged in a treachery against their nation.”

It’s hard to believe this has happened. The Republican Party has become the Autocracy Party. Most of its members and adherents have decided that they want to replace our Constitutional democracy with one-party rule autocratic rule like that existing in Russia and more recently in Hungary and Poland.

To this end, Republicans may be expected to obstruct and undermine the administration of Joe Biden, which will begin on January 20th, and work in the fashion of aspiring despots to achieve their goal in the coming years.
