The Republican Party has aided and abetted Trump's lies for four long years. It's no good now, when it is far too late, trying to convince simple-minded people that they've been duped like the gullible idiots they truly are. Furthermore, plenty of studies show that once a person believes something, if reality contradicts their belief they will firmly reject reality. This is, after all, the basis of all religion - and we know that Republicans are overwhelmingly religious, with 85% of evangelicals and a majority of Catholics voting the ticket. Once you convince a stupid person of something, they lack the neurons necessary to change their mind. That's why, thanks to the Republican Party, the USA is finished. The Biden interlude will merely slightly slow, but not change, the trajectory to dictatorship.
