Everyone who has ANY perception of political news these days who are well-informed knows that the Republican Party has evolved into what is now known as the MAGA Party. The original thought was that it stood for “Make America Great Again”, which is a term that is the motto now of the very far right, so-called Republican base. But if you really understand what that statement falsely admits, you can conclude that Donald Trump never understood that America has always been great. Case in point, what does ‘Again’ mean in that statement?
The slogan first showed up in the political campaign of Trump when he first ran for president in 2016 and 2017. What he conveyed to his followers is that the nation is in decline, and that he and he alone would make America great again. Now, in his latest post in his social media site called ‘Truth Social’, Trump admits that ‘MAGA’ is a cult.
Donald Trump’s supporters continually go down his rabbit hole of the MAGA cult as they continue to support his conduct during his present campaign to try and win back the White House in 2024.
But what the MAGA party truly stands for now is not for what it once stood for . Now as a whole, they are in the process of destroying their country.
MAGA extremists like Margarie Taylor Green, and Matt Gaetz are in position now to make sure that the House is not capable of passing desperately needed laws to keep the government open at the end of the month. With complete control of the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, the MAGA leaders will use him as a scapegoat as to why the government is shut down. McCarthy did everything to concede power to these MAGA extremists, so he could become the speaker. Now he is leading these extremists to impeach President Joe Biden because the MAGA’s demanded he do so, on which they have no grounds to do. Most importantly, they are doing this under the direction of their MAGA leader, Donald J. Trump. This extreme party has now become a threat to democracy. They intend to stomp out everything that really makes this country great, including their present president, Joe Biden. But unfortunately for Speaker McCarthy, they will use the shutdown and the problems that are owned by the MAGA party, as an excuse to fire him from his job. That makes Speaker McCarthy the most ignorant man in America, soon to be one of the most disgraced after attempting to fight so hard for these MAGAs in attempt to keep his job which even he knows he could not keep because of their demands of him.
In a statement by President Joe Biden, he summed up what he believes what the slogan ‘Make America Great Again’ believers are. In a speech he made in Philadelphia on September 1, 2022 in Philadelphia, he stated the following…
“There is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country,” Biden said. “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.”
The country is poised to put up with the beginning of the long list of court battles that Donald Trump faces for the next few years. Regardless of the facts, the MAGA followers of Donald Trump will continue to support him with their votes and their money, so they can help Trump pay all of his legal bills he now has.
First, MAGAs believe that the last election that Trump lost was stolen. They believe that COVID-19 was a bioweapon from China. They blame the riots at the capitol the work of antifa. They are now blaming Democrats in attempting to remove Trump from the campaign by using the Actual 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
In all actuality, Trump supporters should blame themselves for support such a criminal mind as Donald Trump. Nothing good can ever come out of their support for Donald Trump. They cannot make America great again or actually keep American from not being great by continuing on a path to destruction of their own party.
Can the country survive with a destroyed Republican party. I argue that it cannot. This county was built on a belief that people have a right to their beliefs and no man has the right to take rights away from others. There needs to be two healthy parties, ones that can disagree with each other, but can come to a common resolution to their differences. One thing is for sure. The Republican party can not exist in it’s true and intended form with the addition of the MAGA party. That puts democracy at stake here.
Elections matter. Will the country re-elect an honest and decent president such as Joe Biden, or will the country elect a failed president, twice impeached, 4-times indicted monster of a man, someone who will continue to tear down the country in every way possible because he will then have nothing to lose. The U.S. Constitution for once may be responsible for saving the country by eliminating Donald Trump from ever running for political office again. I predict a jail term for Trump. It most likely will be drastic. For the felonies he is charged and all can be proven, he stands to spend the rest of his life in jail. On the other hand if re-elected, he cannot be up for re-election if he is serving his second term in office as president. If you think his accusations against everyone that he doesn’t agree with are bad now, just wait until he gains a second term. He will attempt to pardon himself. He will acquire a MAGA person, such as Majorie Tayor Green, to be his vice-president, just in case something happens to him, the MAGA party will continue to exist and havoc in the county will persist. Democracy and our lives are at stake in the upcoming election. There will not be a more important election than the presidential election of 2024. If Biden wins, the country will continue to thrive. If Trump wins, freedoms as we know it today will no longer exist. America will no longer be free. A second civil war will erupt.
