Nobility doesn't exist in the republican party

The republican party continues it's stand against anything truthful or noble. This is obvious by the fact that not one senator cares if we have legal, fair elections in the United States. Even Susan Collins is unconcerned. How these people wake and a look at themselves in the mirror is beyond me but each bears a responsibility for the total meltdown in our democracy along with fake sen's Manchin and Sinema. What a disgusting display of narcissism. Allowing state legislators the ability to pass awful voting laws, shows what awful people they have become. I will never again look at any of them with an ounce of respect. it's completely disgusting.

1. Well said. A Republican's idea of nobility, is descending from a slaveholder or robber baron.

They always had that snobbishness about them. But now it's just become extreme - like so many other opinions of theirs these days.

This is one of the reasons that I am looking forward to those "Fake Electors" to see some time in court (and hopefully, prison). They had the hubris to believe that they could do that IN WRITING, mail it all to the Congress and the National Archives, and not see any consequences.

Hearing that the AG of Michigan has referred this to the US Attorney in her state was delightful last night!

has a memorial to him at the west end of the Washington mall. Since then, the Rs have been doing their level best to become the modern-day Dixiecrats. Today's Republicans would make Strom Thurmond and former KKK member, Richard Byrd, slink away in shame.

12. I would say the last decent one was Eisenhower.

But before Ike, I would go back to Teddy Roosevelt (although he had a lot of faults when it came to his Imperialism).

When you consider Teddy broke away from the Republicans in 1912 because he saw the corporate powers having too much power in the Republican Party, that says something.

6. They are convinced they are righteous and good. Therefore any means to impose their goodness is good

They think god is on their side.

They think god chose them for great power and wealth

They think if they can ban abortion they're saving millions of lives, so even killing a few pro-choicers who might stand in their way is justified.

They sleep very well, having designed for themselves an propaganda ecosystem that completely excludes any thought that what they're doing might be a bad thing.

10. Nobility? Hell, SANITY doesn't exist in the Republican party.

At this point I'd be happy to see anything like rationality from them.

And then we can worry about higher traits like nobility later...

ethical and moral character as the definition of "nobility" and having the qualities needed for wisdom in governing toward peace and justice. Obviously they and affiliated members would prefer to claim the privileged titles of lineage of nobility as bestowed by a monarch, per se the first definition; in fact, a titled name unfortunately has never automatically conveyed or bestowed that second definition, great moral or ethical character, upon any privileged (elected or appointed) member of the GOP or those supporters/voters identified as such by affiliation no less the for-profit "corporate personhood" steering the economy for their fascist benefit, likewise.

Great wealth and greed attend or inspire most if not all of them. It's my humble opinion, that no leading member of the Republican party or one whose own bias falls that way (as a judge, a CEO, a union boss) has attained that status without practicing and/or falling into easy corruption and zealotry to idol gawds, namely, money, power, control via systems enacted by twisted rule of law, policies of covert deceit. They indeed no longer care to provide for the general welfare of this republic nor passionately protect it's underpinnings in democratic principle or vote. As a result, we will be ill-prepared to face and defeat what lies ahead on this planet if we don't fight and defeat the evil within this party's failures of stewardship.
