It is hard to believe the depths to which the Republican Party headed by Donald Trump would go to. Now the GOP is intimidating their supporters. They are acting like mafia bosses to coerce their donors to give monthly.

The New York Times reported the following.
The political arm of House Republicans is deploying a prechecked box to enroll donors into repeating monthly donations — and using ominous language to warn them of the consequences if they opt out: “If you UNCHECK this box, we will have to tell Trump you’re a DEFECTOR.”
The language appears to be an effort by the National Republican Congressional Committee to increase its volume of recurring donations, which are highly lucrative, while invoking former President Donald J. Trump’s popularity with the conservative base. Those donors who do not proactively uncheck the box will have their credit cards billed or bank accounts deducted for donations every month.
Sadly, this will likely work with many Trump’s supporters as they have been acclimated to following a strongman. We are in new times. And some Americans are changing with it in the wrong direction. Like Donald Trump effected a tax cut scam on all Americans, he is now scamming his supporters.
