Take away the GQP's funding

The Congressional GQP cares about keeping power and to keep power they need money. We can't fight them using reason. I read it here; it is impossible for rational people to debate irrational people. We need to go after the latter, their money.
According to a report from Politico, Republican Party leaders are furious that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has thrown its support behind policies being proposed by newly-elected President Joe Biden. We need to go after the funding of all of the traitors who vote to acquit. We need to find out who is funding them and then put pressure on them to stop.

Follow the money, always. Ask the donors if they want democracy or nihilism? Ask them if they want our country to look like Somalia?

Just my 2 cents because I know the mindless GQP followers, I live among them and they are irrational.

need to be sanctioned with massive organized boycotts like the world has never seen before.

Soon, the Qpublican members of the Senate are going to vote to acquit a clearly guilty Trump, and their vote will signify their approval and promotion of violent fascist attack on our democracy and our government, fomented in order to violently overthrow our democracy and government, with the intent of replacing it with an authoritarian, anti-democratic fascist dictatorship.

Everyone in our country, who opposes a violent fascist overthrow of our nation, must steadfastly unite, and non-violently stand together on every front, to oppose and stop Trump and his violent Qpublican fascist mob from destroying America.

Taking as much of their funding away as possible, through widespread boycotts of unprecedented magnitude, will be a big step in quarantining the Qpublican fascists from power.

It will do absolutely no good to try to reason with or shame the Senators who vote to acquit, but take away their funding and they will take notice. This strategy must be implemented or there will be an endless supply of fascists streaming into our democracy.

We can't let this strategy die.

We might be able to get them to overturn it instead of having to pass a Constitutional Amendment (long shot I know).

Also pressure them on their Voting Rights Act ruling where Robert’s said there really isn’t any racism in voting anymore. That didn’t age well!
