The Republicans have gone to great efforts to demonize "liberal" "centrist", "moderate", etc. to be coequal with socialist and communist. So what's the difference? They freak out at the idea of a "Democrat" winning the presidency. I suspect they all know they have done some very bad and un-American things and when the power swings back to Democrats, they will have to answer for those things. The House of Cards collapses.
If they are not made to answer for those things, as the staff at Guantanamo Bay (and the politicians giving the orders) were not made to pay, as Nixon was pardoned by Ford, then it doesn't matter in the long run who wins the election.
