GOP madness Unbound...

Don't be so sure that Trump is going to bring down the GOP in 2022 elections.  At this point in time, Trump may yet be the most powerful person in the GOP in that he can influence elections at the county, state and federal levels more than McConnell.  That may change, but it has not yet.

The Dems are not filing lawsuits against Trump; the American people are.

But remains to be seen if these DUMPites who win the primaries will win in the actual elections.

Trump supported candidates will find it difficult to beat an incumbent in the GOP primary.   But as you note,  even if they do,   the two sides will beat up on each other so much the Dem will be able to use clips from the ads ran during the primary in their ads in the General election.   Such ads should have an impact on independents as well as "soft" GOP voters  (I.e. someone will to cross party lines from time to time).

As I noted in thread on Republican voter suppression, just one state of many.  Even FL, where many GOPers use mail-in voting, is trying to change the rules.  They have used mail-in voting for years and it has been very successful.  In fact, it is what helped the GOPers build the majority they have in legislature now.  Many of the retirees vote by mail and majority of them vote Republican.

While the Dems had a huge mail-in vote majority over GOPers this time, much of it was fueled by the anti-Trump vote.  Without Trump as the enemy will the Dems be as successful in the future in getting people to vote for them?  Time will tell.  Far too many in the Dem base don't vote unless tremendous efforts are made to get them to do so.

S.C. Republicans have not gone this far, but they are hell-bent on lowering state income tax.  Top bracket is 7%, BUT the actual rate after a multitude of exceptions, deductions and so forth is about 3%.  They also plan to exempt all income for military retirees, even those who receive up to $165,000 per year in retirement pay.  Meanwhile retired teachers, state and local employees, etc. are taxed on most of their incomes.  Sales tax is 6%, but most local governments add 1-3%.

The rationale is that no taxes will attract professionals and corporations to the states.  Of course these people will take jobs away from life-long S.C. residents.

(Octavio Jones/Reuters)

N.C. Republicans censured their senior senator for voting against Trump. But they are silent on Rep. Madison Cawthorn.

The contrasting approach to Sen. Richard Burr and Cawthorn, a pro-Trump freshman who is accused of sexual harassment and false statements, starkly illustrates the dichotomy within the Republican Party.

There have been a few muted criticisms of Mad Son by local Republicans, but not many.

The WP is awful stingy when to comes to reading even a few articles. Guess Bezos needs

the scratch.

Yea,  this Norton guy is really a bozo.      First the government isn't doing any so called canceling.     These are actions between private parties.

Next he calls for cancelling Target!     Even Bozo can see the irony here!

BREAKING: Senate passes $1.9T coronavirus relief package that includes
$1,400 checks, $300/wk jobless benefits through summer, a child allowance of up to $3,600 for one year, $350B for state aid, $34B to expand ACA subsidies, $14B for vaccine distribution.

Not a single Republican senator voted for the COVID relief bill. Not one.
 
That should tell you all you need to know.

Now back to the House for hopefully a quick approval and then to Biden for signature.
