I watch with sadness as the Republican Party and its MAGA manipulators continue to destroy the foundations of our democracy.

Even the highly respected Susan Collins has fallen prey to the piping of misinformation. I only have to read Margaret Chase Smith’s “Declaration of Conscience,” enshrined in the Congressional Records as the founding document for the rebuttal of the McCarthy abuses of political office over half a century ago, to see how far the Grand Old Party has fallen. Margaret Chase Smith was one of the first voices to call out those corrupt behaviors.

Today’s Republicans now promote the same tactics and behaviors, very much McCarthyism reborn and blatantly practiced daily.
