1. Many of them do not want to live in a democracy

Democracy is messy and requires thinking and compromise. Better just to be told what to do. And if you don't agree, they have ways of taking care of troublemakers like you.

5. Back in the day the republicans, the 1% and corporations, loved fascism

they were big Mussolini fans. There was even a plot led by some corporate big wigs to overthrow FDR.

6. Vintage right-wing internet chestnut: "America isn't a democracy, it's a republic."

Of course it's both, but they don't give a shit about the democracy part. They want their lives ordered, and want to be told what to think and do. They are intellectually dead, and have no interest in finding out things for themselves.

When it comes to their religious choices, they want the Old Testament "Gawd-duh," who kills and torments people, and makes them slog through all sorts of demoralizing tests to prove their love and loyalty. Which brings everything around to Trump, and why they adore him.
