Chomping at the Bit

If Republicans take over the House and Senate, we know it will be absolute destruction, carnage, lack of civility, lawlessness, retribution, unfounded investigation after investigation, authoritarianism, impeachment/eviction, more police brutality, etc etc etc but do you get the feeling that Republicans right now are just chomping at the bit for all of this to happen??!! I actually think they are salivating over it! I think they have all these evil plans in place already and it will be a trigger moment to start implementing if they win in November

It scares me to death if we don't keep the House and the Senate!!!

Second, it will be open season on Dems & Libs. It's what the repug voters want. Prison camps and executions.

when they get settled in they'll start stealing everything from S.S./medicare fund, veterans funds, the national parks, they steal your pensions....... tell me when to stop. Cocksucker all of them.

They really couldn't hurt us too much policy wise in 2023 because Biden can just veto everything, but they could hurt us PR wise with fake investigattions.

There are 2 things that terrify me the most

1 - SCOTUS rules for unitary legislature and one person one vote dies along with our Democracy - this is the most frightening because it will end our country with a whimper and the right wing wants to turn us into Russia - truly scary

2 - R legislatures refuse to certify any D in 2022 & going forward, in some states - AZ for sure- that is all thst is needed to overturn an election

as they've overplayed their hand with the medieval Dobbs decision. Plus the Biden admin has just had it's strongest week ever with the tremendous jobs report, the eminent passing of the Anti-inflation/climate bill, the eye-opening abortion election in Kansas, the passing of the veterans health burn pitt bill and the assassination of the Al Qaeda mastermind in Afghanistan.

We Dems are on a roll and there's little chance the repubs will be able to cram their horrible wish list through as Joe Biden would never sign them even if they somehow got them through Congress.

They will of course try again in '24 but we'll fight them then too.
