How come does the GOP have these so-called retreats?

While the Ds stay in DC and continue to work to better the country?

4. Democrats are about using government to help people.

Republicans are about using people to help them stay in government. The retreats are to plan strategy and keep a unified message. They don't want Nunes' lies interfering with Ryan's lies or McConnell's lies so they all have to be on the same lying page.

5. This de-classified bunker is so 50's bomb-shelter.

I guess they all get off on playing spy or something.

6. So they can meet with their real bosses the Koch brothers and Mercers,

and others who want to remain private, and be told what to do next? So the bosses don't get photographed going to capitol hill?

8. Not to be a grammar nag....

But it would be proper to state your question as:

"Why do the GOP have these so-called retreats?"

10. They made a movie about this exact same thing

It's called "Conspiracy", with Kenneth Branagh. Slightly different timeline and different players, but same general concept and likely the same overall plan.

13. This movie takes place in 1942 Berlin

The whole movie takes place during a conference, where Hitler's top men get together to discuss the Final Solution. A deeply unsettling movie, starring Kenneth Branagh and Colin Firth.
