At heart, Republicans are Royalists, proponents of absolute rulers that are selected by lot, rather than birth. Republicans reject the idea that the people govern. So, when the people exercise their authority, they seek to restrain them by any means possible. This accounts for the chicanery at the ballot box, the incarceration of the non-compliant and the constant barrage of propaganda.
It is because Republicans are Royalists that they put the eqivalent of a French dauphin in the White House. When the ruler-in-chief is just a mascot or figurehead, it makes no difference how dumb he is. That he is eating burgers in bed instead of bonbons is just evidence that this is the twenty first century.
