Over the years, from the time of Abraham Lincoln until now, what has the Republican Party become? Times of stress bring out in high relief what we are as individuals. It does the same for a political party. The presidency of #DonaldTrump has been one of those times of stress. What is now very clear is that the US Republican party is the last bastion of patriarchy, dedicated to dominance, control, and power. Most often, and certainly if necessary, without regard to the common good. For example, contrast the stimulus package proposed by the Republicans versus the Democrats in this time of great need to respond to the personal and financial damage being done by the need to respond to the coronovirus Covid-19.
