Lest We Forget…
…Dr. Stephen R. Keister reminds us:
“Tell big lies. Do not qualify or concede a point, no matter how wrong you may be. Do not hesitate or stop for reservations. The masses are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional natures than consciously, and thus fall victims of the big lie rather than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies but would be ashamed to resort to large scale falsehoods.” — Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf

For a moment I thought you were suggesting a parallel between the GOP and the National Socialist German Workers Party but then I realized this could not be, as it would be an illustration of Godwin's Law which I am sure you would never violate. Would you?
Violate, hell. I embody it.
