Its natural for the GOP to treat thier leaders like Tyrants/Dictators because that's how their party is structured and thus this is how they have behaving for a long time, i.e. like an internal Nazi terrorist organization that functions on lies above all else
GOP tax plan: Republicans praise Trump profusely Republican leaders told Donald Trump multiple times how great they think he is because of the passing of the GOP tax plan. Trump biographer Tim O’Brien joins Joy Reid on what he says is the president’s bottomless need for love. Duration: 7:01
Trumps plan seems to have been to lie till the Bill passes and then just admit he lied!
Donald Trump and the ‘just tell them’ approach to the truth
No one, of course, read the bill so it wasn't written by the politician OR for the people and is thus anti-constitutional in nature as its not for "we the people" but for "we the corporations" (with a push on fake economics to make it seem like its for the people so they can get away with their cams); - links
House Republicans Can't Answer One Basic Question About the Tax Bill They Just Signed Into Law Not even the legislation's co-author seems to know how many tax brackets it creates.
According to HuffPost's Matt Fuller, he had to interview 18 congressmen and women before he could find one, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), who knew how many tax brackets the legislation creates. (For those scoring at home, the correct answer is seven: 10 percent, 12 percent, 22 percent, 24 percent, 32 percent, 35 percent and 37 percent.) These House members included Budget Committee Chairwoman Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) and Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), who co-authored the bill.
Still others, like Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX), Mike Gallagher (R-WI), Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and Chris Collins (R-NY), resorted to educated guessing. (Gallagher and Cramer reportedly came the closest, but each left out two of the seven brackets.)
The Republican Party passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act without holding a single public hearing. Before the bill was returned to the House later that morning, the Senate GOP passed the legislation sometime after midnight Wednesday.

The GOP tax plan passed despite Trump’s ‘leadership,’ not because of it
Republican Politicians Got Away With Ridiculous Claims to Defend Their Tax Bill—and It's Trump's Fault How Trump paved the way for Republican lawmakers to be openly classist and racist.
Increasingly, it seems like Donald Trump has paved the way for Republicans to get away with statements that are nearly as outrageous as his own. Take the shameless claims the Republicans have used to push for the tax bill over the past two months. In case you're having trouble keeping up, here’s a brief rundown of a few times Republican officials made it perfectly clear they prioritize the wealthy over the poor:
- Sen. Lindsey Graham claimed that “financial contributions” to the GOP “will stop” if the party couldn’t push through a tax rewrite.
- Sen. Chuck. Grassley said he was tired of government assistance programs aiding Americans who are stuck in poverty because they’re “spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.”
- Congressman Chris Collins admitted, “My donors are basically saying, ‘Get it done or don’t ever call me again'.”
- Sen. Orrin Hatch stated, “I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves, won’t lift a finger and expect the federal government to do everything.”
In the good old days, politicians used to pretend they served their constituents. What happened?
Side Note: Everything with the GOP moves towards the creation of a "royalty" or rich people (a plutarchy, oligarchy ... with a Monarchy clearly visible over the horizon)...
Journalism professor: Anti-net neutrality FCC chairman Ajit Pai "wants to enable the oligopoly of cable and the telephone to control the net"
... and straight up dictatorships...
Trump just threatened to shut down news outlets critical of him. That's what's happened in Turkey.Update: Trump doubles down, calls it "disgusting" that "the press is able to write whatever they want to write and people should look into it"
On CNN's Reliable Sources, Jeff Greenfield shows how Stephen Miller's phrase "cosmopolitan bias" goes back to "Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini" Greenfield: "Its history goes back to Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, who used the term ... to suggest disloyalty"
Fox Business ran defense for Scott Pruitt by baselessly attacking a CNN investigation CNN reported on the EPA chief helping a mining company. Fox Business Network didn't like that at all.
Study: Trump officials overwhelmingly flock to Fox News Trump and his administration officials, family members, and lawyer are sticking to right-wing media
An extreme, conspiracy/infowars like, asskissing - "praise"- example: Lou Dobbs credits Trump presidency with increase in Christmas displays and holiday joy Dobbs: "I am seeing far more in the way of Christmas displays, Christmas lights ... and so much obvious joy"
Wow! Lou Dobbs expects loyalty oaths to the President (not the Constitution) and that a president can't be critizeds (like a Monarch/King) thus attacking the very foudnations of American (& global) democracy
