Republican governors are going on record as saying they will oppose President Joe Biden’s executive actions on gun control. Here’s hoping they mean it and don’t just get tired of fighting in a short span or if some professional or college sports organization threatens repercussions for non-compliance.
Zooming out on the timeline here, however, I find remarkable similarities to how Republicans and Democrats act today and how they acted a century-and-a-half ago during the Reconstruction Era.
In reading Ron Chernow’s biography of Ulysses S. Grant, we can see just how little has changed in 150 years. Tyrannical Democrats are still willing to lie, steal, cheat, and murder their way into power and to use all the same to hold onto whatever power they get. And squishy moderate Republicans are as willing and ready as ever to abandon their principles as soon as it becomes clear the fighting is going to take longer than 15-minutes.
