It's that time of year. Every year, I do some kind of year end review. So here, with an apology to Daniel Defoe and his great early 18th century book, is Part 1 of what has been one literal hell of a year, thanks in no small part to the people mentioned below. The end of the year can't come soon enough and neither can the end of the people in this post. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work that way when voters are governed by low IQs, their fears, and misplaced beliefs and loyalties.
Think about the last several months. First, think about the time since Tuesday, November 3rd. Think of the total madness, the unbounded conspiracy mongering, the attempted coup. Think of the people who have most directly supported their party's ongoing coup attempt, a war on the democratic process, a war on America, a war on the supposed essence of America itself. What are their names? What are the names of the people who could have prevented this? What are the names of those who could have removed the ringleader of this circus of treason with a simple up or down vote?
Here is the list, the list of senators who voted to keep Trump in office back in early February. They knew what was coming and still they did what they did. It's the list of those who liked what they saw in Donald J. Trump and knew he was up to the job of ignoring the threats against us just as they were. Theirs is an "I really don't care, do you" philosophy. It's the essence of republicanism. The list of those who would have nothing to do with the impeachment articles presented by the House no matter how many there were and no matter how much evidence was presented. Their boy really could have shot people in the street and they would have said zippo. Their vote to keep their boy in the oval office was not an act of courage or cowardice. It was an act of deliberate, well thought out, malice and treason, all for more cash and more fash. Their vote was also a deliberate death sentence for tens of thousand of their constituents. They voted with the smirks of sociopaths on their faces. The list below is a list of $enators who share Trump's dream of fascist dictatorship, a list of those who share the dream of chaos for America with their hands out to their financial supporters both on K Street and in Russia:
52 scumbags. Add in Mittens Romney (R-UT) who tried to be cagey and have it both ways knowing that that would have zero effect on the end result. In some ways, that should earn him even less respect. He's thinking of picking ups the pieces in 2024, if there are any pieces left.
3000 Americans are dying every damn day. That's your bigliest achievement, Repugs. Thanks so much, Assholes! Drink your damn bleach. Not one of you has died from COVID-19 yet every one of you deserves to.
There, that's the list of those who could have voted to prevent the hell that was 2020. There are other names that could be included, of course, including the names of those who voted for the names in the list above, even those who made sure that there were not stronger candidates running against such vermin. But the names in this list are the names of the Trump soldiers, who, outside of his immediate staff, are most directly responsible for the year long pre-election chaos and their party's post-election coup attempt. Their names are on it all. They own it. They deliberately kept Trump in office and then, along with party Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, endorsed his every move either through words and money, or silence. They are not the profiles in cowardice. Their actions were obviously premeditated, not spur of the moment fear and failure to act. They are the profiles in treason and, in a better world, they would face the blade. Now that you've seen the names of these advocates of treason, death, and chaos, aka the names of the $enate Treason Caucus, all in one neat, easy to refer to list, think about all those voters who thought these sociopaths and traitors to America deserve additional years to carry on Putin's mission, with or without his puppet Trump. Think about how, for the people on the list, the number of coronavirus deaths and the toll of the virus upon our economy, our lives and our businesses, and the American way of life itself meant nothing and never will. They'll vote for raises and more healthcare for themselves but they won't even raise the minimum wage for you, if you're ever to even get a job again.
