It’s “funny” though. I think many people are in favor of an authoritarian dictatorship as long as that dictator is their guy doing their bidding. Then it’s all fine and dandy.
I've thought that for a long time now. Not so much in dictator terms, but being able to use the power and force of government.
I'm astonish to see the huge number of Republicans following Trump. I keep asking myself are those folks interested in winning elections? Apparently not. That's not to say the GOP might win elections in spite of Trump. What I can't understand, if one really likes the ideals, the philosophy, the policies Trump had, has. Why not move on to another who has basically those same ideals and philosophy, but without the baggage of being uncouth, rude, childish even. Someone with a bit of tact and being able to at least act presidential instead of like a WWE wrestler in a pre-fight interview.
Then again, Trump never had a political ideology or philosophy of his own. The 7 time party switcher has always adopted the philosophy of the party he belonged to at the time. So go figure. Figure or make sense of it all, I can't.
