Russian Dupes

It's odd how the Republican party has gone from thinking that Russia poses the greatest geopolitical threat to the United States, to actually being dupes of the Russian State.
One of the problems is the sheer amount of love the Republican base has for authoritarianism. You know, I never realized just how that could be until I read this thing by Czech animator Jan Švankmajer about how there is a certain segment of society that actually wants a totalitarian state.
And the Republican party is chock full of people who talk a game about "freedom" but what they actually want is an autocracy.
