The bribing system is a type of government known as fascism. This means that big corporations and wealthy people control what the government does. It allows a few people at the top to stay powerful and rich. These people are willing to use the government's power to do what they want, even if it goes against what most people want.
Some politicians, called Republicans, are using bribes and other unfair tactics to stay in power. They only care about what a small group of people wants, even if it hurts the rest of us. This is hurting our country, especially in important parts of our government like the Senate and Supreme Court.
Fascism is a very violent and dangerous way of thinking. The people who believe in it use violence and threats to control others. They want to dominate everyone else, and they often use their wealth to do this. They don't care about what is fair or right, only about getting their way. They use violence to recruit others for their cause, and many people don't even realize they are being controlled.
The Republicans who support fascism are authoritarian, which means they want to force their ideas on everyone, even if most people don't agree. This is not fair or democratic. They are going against what most people want, and that is not how a government should work.
The Republican party has become a group of political fascists. Some Democrats still think they can work with these Republicans, but they are wrong. Republicans only care about money and power, and they don't want to do what's best for the people. They even threaten violence against different groups of people, like school board members, nurses, racial minorities, and gay people.
Sometimes, the Democrats get more votes than the Republicans, but they still lose elections. Some people think this is because Democrats are too weak and don't understand what working Americans need. But the Democrats are actually the last hope we have to stop fascism. The Republicans are becoming extreme and anti-woman, anti-gay, and anti-freedom. They even refused to investigate a violent attack on our Capitol by their own supporters.
Republicans try to scare people by saying that the Democrats are socialists, but that's not true. In reality, every single Republican in Congress takes money from lobbyists and the healthcare industry. They are owned by right-wing billionaires who don't want to pay taxes. They want to keep things the way they are so they can keep making money.
The Republican party has become like a cult. They have a religion called QAnon, a military made up of white supremacist militias, and they control many propaganda outlets. They are even getting ready for a war against our democracy.
