GOP's loyalty to TFG has has the party in a 'death spiral', says former US cybersecurity chief

The former head of the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Christopher Krebs, said that the Republican Party was in a “death spiral” owing to its allegiance to former President Donald Trump.

Mr Krebs, who famously contradicted Mr Trump’s claims about widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election before being terminated from his post last year, is a self-described lifelong member of the GOP. On Sunday, he spoke with CBS’s Face the Nation about his party and the former president’s ongoing efforts to sow distrust about US voting systems.

“This is a death spiral. They’ve lost control, and they don’t know how to rein it back in,” said Mr Krebs.

“I mean, it’s captured by the base, right?” he added of the party. GOP leader, Mr Krebs said, are “afraid to speak up, because they’re afraid the former president is gonna try to primary them. And the other piece is they’ve activated and lost control of their voting base. The people that’ve put them in power.”

Let's hope it doesn't become the death spiral of our democracy.

1. I hope that death spiral will culminate in the immediate death of that foul cult.

3. If it's their party, let it happen. If it's the country, that's another matter entirely

We must remain vigilant. There is too much at stake.

6. I wish the Republican rubes in Ohio would realize this.

The current crop of GOP candidates running to replace Portman are so busy trying to out-Trump each other, it’s sickening.But that’s what seems to play here.

9. Yeah, I'm not as sanguine. Voter suppression and theft appear to be running amok.

We don't seem to be able or willing to stop it. Thanks SineManchin.

10. I've got to agree with you, lagomorph

Seems that in the last century, Germany's National Socialist Party went into a death spiral that lasted for 13 years. Seventy five million people were dead before that spiral ended.
