Sure, the Right got on board a bit when it started trending on Twitter and seemed to be becoming A Thing. But had Paul not filibustered, there would have been few ripples. Our Ruling Class *likes* the accrual of despotic power and they don’t like or trust you. For most of them, you are no longer fellow citizens, but lower orders who might, when you get too financially strapped by their predatory oppression, revolt. This is about preparing for that eventuality. The US is, for most of our Ruling Class, not a home to be loved and protected, but a resource to be bled dry and then discarded. These people are not our friends.
