Deplorable standards of modern Republican Party

Trumplicans, formerly called Republican legislators, have now shown complete and unconditional allegiance to Donald Trump. And what do they stand for? Lower taxes for corporations are perfectly acceptable, lower taxes for the rich are perfectly acceptable, elimination of universal health care is perfectly acceptable, climate warming is perfectly acceptable, voter suppression is perfectly acceptable, the obscene gun culture is perfectly acceptable.

And based upon their recent performance, lying is perfectly acceptable, conspiracies are perfectly acceptable, racism is perfectly acceptable, and to top off the list, insurrection and violent suppression of the peaceful transfer of power is perfectly acceptable. It can only be concluded that they, and unfortunately many in the Republican Party, have all the necessary ingredients for fascism or worse.
