REPUBLICANS MUST LIE TO SURVIVE

Talk Republican if you want to pose as a rich authoritarian overlord.

Be surly, wear an expensive watch.

It's as easy as tuning into talk radio while you commute and they play the same hit music of the last 50 years.

Trump performs fabulously in the role of the GOP pitchman. He never strays from serving the interests of the wealthy 1% and big business. Like Reagan, Trump places great emphasis on frivolous issues to create grand diversions, like patriotism and national pride. Trump loves to hug the American flag while on stage during campaign rallies, despite the fact that Trump’s disdain for the Constitution likely renders him the most un-American president this nation has ever endured. Trump’s campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again” is nearly identical to phrases used by Reagan.

Trump employs the same divisive issues as Reagan to trick hard-working people in the middle class into going against their own economic interests and voting for the GOP, including the divisive issues of religion, gun rights and abortion. Perhaps Trump’s greatest exploitation is on the issue of immigration.

Trump does have a different style in serving as the GOP pitchman. Reagan attempted to appear stately and noble, whereas Trump seeks to appear tough, threatening and outlandish. Trump also plays the role of an entertainer, often appearing childish or clownish, such as by resorting to juvenile name-calling. But both Trump and Reagan emphasized their personalities in order to distract attention from substantive issues.

Reagan was not rich himself, so he acted more as a useful idiot of the wealthy 1%. Trump is among the wealthy 1% himself, so he acts directly in his own self-interest. But they shared the same goal of serving the interests of the wealthy 1%.

The lying is not limited to the leaders at the top but pervades the entire Republican Party. This is necessary to sustain the party. The lying is constantly on display from members of Congress to state officials to spokespeople in the media. They are always deceiving, misleading, changing the subject, clouding the issues, presenting a diametrically opposite view from the truth, blaming the Democrats for being the true liars, and forever waging malicious personal attacks against their opponents instead of debating issues on the merits.

To be sure, politicians as a group tend to bend the truth, and Democrats are no exception. But nothing compares to the sheer magnitude and volume of lies that emanate from the Republican Party. The lies are carefully designed to destroy truth by manipulating or confusing the public, and are deployed in massive coordinated campaigns that constitute “systemic lies” with blatantly false labels: “Junk science” to describe actual climate science, “right to work” to describe eliminating workers' right to organize, “religious liberty” to describe privileging Christians over all others, “death panels,” “death tax” and “fake news.”

The enormity of the lying is simply stunning, and it is carried forth by an army of loyal Republican soldiers at every level. But the Republican Party seems to do the best when it has a highly charismatic personality at the top. A perfect puppet of perfidy.

That's rich given how the Democrat's Impeachment bullshit is just that: Bullshit

There will be no impeachment. Nancy herself has said so. They don't have enough DEMOCRAT votes let alone this fantasy that a GOP Rep will vote for his impeachment.

Such a shame really. I'd love to see them do it...just to watch it all go down in flames and for the public to lash back at them.

"Republicans must lie to survive"

You mean just like Hillary saying Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein are Russian assets?

Let me translate this for those of you as confused as you should be.
The post in the OP does not prove Republicans must lie to survive.
It's just more TDS whining, saying Republicans are Doody Heads.

Embrace the Head Doody.

There’s that parallel trumpiverse again with all those alternate realities.

All fake except for Trump. The singularity. Trump’s sacred truths.

Benghazi

BENGHAZI!!! Now there is wasted effort and backlash after 7 congressional investigations, SEVEN!!!! hours and hours of testimony and NOTHING, no charges, faults at all costing eleven MILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS. Years of Fox News spins.

That’s doing things Republican style there are no limits when the right people are in the background getting filthy richER.

That’s why Trump can’t commit enough crimes fast enough or tell enough lies. Again, those right people are in the background getting filthy richER.

The cool thing is that Trump lies EMPHATICALLY and REPEATEDLY that he is accomplishing these great and wonderful things for Americans and Fox too sycophantic fawning and bloviating ad nauseum about the many wonderful pronouncements of Trump ... even while Trump’s BEST PEOPLE are on the other channels testifying and going down in flames. Even going to prison.

Even while Kim Jong Un warns Trump to stop misleading Americans that meeting with N Korea went well.

Alt Right-tards across the web radio and TV harping on Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful Trump.

Impeachment???
