Same As it Ever Was

Voting for Republicans will not fix anything at all. It makes no difference what they say before they’re elected, they’ll do whatever they’re told once in office.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has changed her position on the public release of the tapes documenting the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, warning Friday that their release could “put the security of the Capitol at risk.” Greene said in an interview on the right-wing channel Real America’s Voice that releasing the video footage publicly would jeopardize the Capitol’s security and endanger those who were present at the Capitol grounds but did not enter the Capitol nor commit crimes.

It’s all just so tedious. The inevitable appeal to “national security” is ridiculous in any country with borders as wide-open and undefended as the USA’s. Put not your faith in politicians, for they will break their promises and betray you.

Every single time.

Nobody cares what the excuses are this time. There are always excuses for not doing the right thing, for not doing what you were literally elected to do. But we are rapidly approaching the point that most actual Americans would rather take their chances with the whole thing burning down and fighting it out with the invaders among the glowing ashes of Clown World.
