Florida's Republican politicians indulged Trump's whims and enabled D.C. riot. Let's clean house

Jan. 7—Yes, invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Trump from office.

But this punitive action, essential to begin repairing the wounds embedded in America's soul — and the nation's tattered reputation as a beacon of democracy — won't end the political rot that led to a day of anguish and infamy we will never forget.

The assault on the Capitol by white supremacists was kindled in swaths of the Disunited States of America like Florida, where Republican politicians indulged Trump's whims, adopted his hate speech, abandoned bipartisanship and signed on to MAGA-branded racist policy.

They, too, must also pay, at least a political price, for the seditious riot.

These pols closed ranks and, like a mob, radicalized supporters with disinformation shouted out at rallies, scripted in legislation and disseminated in right-wing media that spanned from mighty Fox News to a racist tabloid, television shows and online forums in Miami.

With words and deeds, they indulged and enabled Trump's delusions of omnipotence and grandeur, turning Florida into the perfect state to make a rabid populist feel at home.

1. It's gotta start at the state and local level

I am in Red Hell FL. There is not one Democratic elected official in my county. But we have a vibrant and rapidly growing Democratic presence here.

We're getting Democrats elected to non-partisan positions, like school board. Even mosquito control board. We are getting more and more letters in the local paper. People are realizing they are not alone.

Our useless POS congresscritter voted with the seditious caucus to try to overturn the election.

I thought I was done after this election - too many disappointments. But I am ready to work for 2022 - to get Rubio and Death Sentence the hell out of office!
