A fictional and constant “state-of-emergency” in Michigan “allows” the GOP to evade democracy and ignore their constitution in order to pass radical bills without any say from the minority leadership in congress. And the GOP doesn’t even have super-majority. What do they think this is - the former Soviet Union? Maddow is being nice here. She lightly tosses out the words “dictatorship” and “autocracy” but generally keeps her cool because she doesn’t want to come off as alarmist.
But this is alarming.
This is NOT okay. The GOP, which claims to so vehemently hate communism, are starting to look like the communist party of Soviet Russia where only members of the communist party were allowed to vote.
Make no mistake about it: Whether the rule is coming from the private sector or the government; we live in an oligarchical system. Democracy is dead.
