This leaves me somewhat confused, considering that the Republicans are in fact a political party of the government, hold a majority in our national government, have sworn to put down rebellions, uphold law, etc. Perhaps the insurrection they would undertake is not literal, but figurative?
What happened to the Republican party that they now lack even the low cunning to exercise their hard-won political majority to affect policies they desire without insurrection? A house divided against itself cannot stand, etc. etc. but it seems that the common sense to not burn down your own house is now lacking.
