There Are No Moderate Republicans

by Shelt Garner

With all front-line Republicans voting to begin an formal impeachment investigation into President Biden, it’s finally clear that there are no moderate Republicans. To be a Republican is to be completely and absolutely beholden to the wishes of malignant ding-dong Trump.

This is yet another ping from a very, very dark future. While I know this will sound like my usual “hysterical doom shit,” it definitely seems as though we continue to careen towards a historic moment in our nation’s history starting in late 2024, early 2025.

Either we slide peacefully into MAGA themed autocracy by electing Trump or Trump loses and we have a civil war because he doesn’t want to go to jail. Meanwhile, if Trump goes “full tyrant” in 2025, it’s possible that Blues won’t take Trump’s shit anymore and the country will collapse into revolution and civil war.

And all of this will be happening in the context of the entire post-WW2 liberal order collapsing as well. With the US preoccupied with trying to figure out what to do with Trump, the entire world will be up for grabs. With the US distracted with mass domestic chaos, you could see at least 1 billion people die as a number of nuclear-tipped frozen regional conflicts suddenly grow very, very hot.

It’s going to suck.

This is all a prime example of the old saying that you go bankrupt gradually, then all at once.

I would like to note something — most Republicans aren’t stupid, but rather craven. They know damn well what they’re doing in regards to impeaching Biden is dumb and unjustified, but they have a word salad they want to impress upon the minds of low information voters, so they just say whatever is necessary during their latest CNN hit to get a few key words shoehorned into the discussion.

They. Do. This. All. The. Time.

But the point is — things definitely *feel* like they’re coming to a head. It seems as though we’ve collectively decided to force the issue of the current Red vs Blue debate out into the open in as painful and dumb a way as possible. And, alas, as much as I hate to even think about it — this might result in a lot of innocent people getting hurt just because of “vibes.”

Yet racism, bigotry and sexism are all hell of a drug. So, barring something I really, really can’t predict, we’re totally and completely fucked. This is it. One way or another, we’re going to the show.

Get ready.
