We know that the GOP leadership and Trump are ruthless sociopaths who will burn
down the country for power and wealth.

It is up to American citizens to decide the fate of our country.

We had to shame the DOJ into doing its job.

Now we have to vote out the GOP. Or at least make them a minority with little power.

They will capture, rape, torture, murder everyone in their way.
And bomb and burn what's left.

They will be the superpowers of a destroyed planet and people.

A handful of oligarchs, billionaires, authoritarian despots, and extreme religious freaks (almost entirely males, of course) will cause untold destruction. It's kind of amazing that so few can harm so many.
