Not just Trump, but the Republican Party seems bent on embracing authoritarian, one party rule. This obviously constitutes an existential danger to our democracy and country. But it also isn’t without perils or dangers for the GOP. It’s making a big bet, which if it loses could (should) endanger its future.

Of course, if the GOP continues to pursue this course of action, don’t expect it to self implode. It will need a push from the broad, diverse, loose democratic coalition that assisted in Biden’s election. As I like to say, it extends from the Lincoln Project on one end to Angela Davis on the other.
