One of the reasons why Republicans will always inevitably fail is because their entire system is built upon implicit trust for their fellow teammates.  Yet their success is due entirely to their ability to bullshit and scam.  Not only is it allowed, it’s absolutely essential.  And so they surround themselves with bullshitters and scammers who they are forced to rely on, and can’t seem to understand why everything goes to shit.

And the problem is that the Republicans have established a bullshitocracy: The better you are at bullshitting, the better you’ll do with them.  As long as you tell them what they want to hear, you’ll do well.  Whether they’re asking you to do something you shouldn’t do or they’re needing you to say something that you shouldn’t say, they’ll reward you for it.  And the better it sounds to them, the better you’ll do.  They don’t care if you know what you’re doing, because you were just supposed to do what they wanted you to do.

And for that same reason, they’re naturally repelled by experts with integrity.  Because those people will be compelled to say the truth, and that’s not what Republicans want to hear.   So they can’t find or keep any of those kind of experts.  That’s the reason why most of the fired prosecutors had sterling reputations; they were fired because they were good at their jobs.

And so that’s one reason why Republicans will always inevitably fail.  Because they don’t want competent experts and they don’t get any.
