For sure, although I think there is some value in holding the party responsible, well responsible. The democrats are not without blame or their fair share of mistakes but It was the GOP that made it possible for big corrupt money to run rampant in politics and it was the GOP that paved the way for unbalanced entertainment news like Fox news, it was the GOP that repealed the fairness doctrine (and one should never underestimate the influence of right wing radio on the ageing population) and in a way it's a little ironic that the far left youth of today spend significant time chastising Democrats for taking big money when in reality they're just playing by the rules of the game that were set when they weren't in power and It was either play the game or lose. Not everyone in politics can be an AOC, when you're up against an opponent with a hundred million dollar war chest & you have 100,000 dollars - you're going to lose. So, they played the game.
Democrats for their part are unorganized and are unwilling to be perceived as being unfair, when they're in power they don't match the GOP's dirty tricks and instead try to bring back normalcy which is admirable but the GOP never mirrors it when they take back control. They also struggle to galvanise supporters & if anybody here knows a right wing republican (especially a boomer) you'll know that on voting day they're up at 5am getting ready to get to the polls as soon as they open. Prior to Trump (because there are Anti-Trump republicans) the GOP had (and in some ways still does) a unified party. Alt right, Far right and centre right all align come voting time. Cntrl left (lol) far left and centre left are all plagued by infighting.
This is the web the GOP has woven - They deserve some accountability for that.
