Maintaing Hierarchies is the Highest Priority with Republicans

Charles M. Blow, in an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled "The Hijacked American Presidency" states,

"Republicans have bound themselves up with Trump. His fate is their fate. They have surrendered any moral authority to which they once laid claim — rightly or not. If Trump goes down, they all do.

"It’s all quite odd, this moral impotence, this cowering before the belligerent, would-be king. A madman and his legislative minions are holding America hostage."

Republicans have lost any moral compass they had, and instead, have committed themselves fully to hierarchies, no matter what comes along. We have spent 250 years in this country breaking hierarchies down, and will continue to do so. The current Republicans may cause a lot of damage, but they can't change the tide of history.
