“While we take no pleasure in the proceedings here, we have a responsibility to do it,” Johnson said
responsibility = worshipping at the feet of their Lord 'n' Savior Donald Trump
Johnson's comments came just over a week after he traveled to Mar-a-Lago to meet with former President Donald Trump, who has been publicly pushing his Republican allies in Congress for months to impeach Biden in retribution for Democrats’ two impeachments of him.
There you have it. Doing the golden calf's bidding.

--What MAGA world means by "swamp" is the people and institutions that keep a check on absolute presidential power.
So you're basically saying the government which has never pretty much listened to its voters, thinks that it knows better than its constituents, wants to increase the government, never just anything for the people
No, that's not what I'm saying.
If you want to have a discussion about the size of the federal bureaucracy, fine. But that's not what this is about. I hate to break it to you, but Donald Trump does not give a fig about what you or "the people" want. He's in it for himself. That's all it's ever been. He wants total loyalists so that he can run the country like a dictator. All of those former members of the Trump administration who Trump once touted as "great" are now "vermin" because they didn't do what HE wanted for HIMSELF. It had nothing to do with policy or conservative principles.
You've been royally had, friend. If you're a true red conservative, you're better off going with Nikki Haley.

wants to keep the swamp intact
What MAGA world means by "swamp" is the people and institutions that keep a check on absolute presidential power. MAGA world hates that because, quite frankly, they have a distaste for real democracy.

--Only fascists say things like this.
Nothing fascist about saying the truth.
Calling one's political opponents "vermin" and enemies of the people. Claiming only one man can fix all of America's problems. Blaming an entire segment of America's population as the root of all evil. Discrediting verifiable fact as "liberal bias" and reputable journalism as "fake". Promising to prosecute one's political adversaries and install in the federal bureaucracy only those who pledge loyalty to the leader. Propagating lies about the 2020 election to discredit trust in electoral processes and election workers. Should I go on? Fascism.
At least Nikki Haley isn't that.

I’d never vote for Haley, but she seems the most responsible and qualified of the GOP candidates. At least she wouldn’t do a wholesale dismantling of democracy, like the fascist front runner has pledged to do.

impose a more radical form of income redistribution siphoning as much money as they can from the middle class and largest taxpayer base
Wealth inequality continues to expand worldwide. The rich are getting richer and richer. If "socialism" were really as rampant as you claim, this wouldn't be happening.

socialism did indeed play a role in the downfall of a once great nation as well as most of Latin Society.
Latin America has long been plagued by vast inequalities between the lower classes and the elite upper classes, whose power has predominantly been protected by right wing dictatorships, military coups and governments, and right wing death squads. Is that your golden age of "Latin Society"?
Your characterization of socialism as applied to Argentina is inaccurate, as are your frequent blanket characterizations of socialism in general.

The Netherlands needs labor, just as the U.S. does. This ain’t the 1950s.
Wilders’ ancestry is half Indonesian, by the way, a fact he likes to downplay to appeal to his white nationalist base.

Here’s more scary fascistic prepping, in case you thought team Trump is just joking:
Hundreds of people are spending tens of millions of dollars to install a pre-vetted, pro-Trump army of up to 54,000 loyalists across government to rip off the restraints imposed on the previous 46 presidents.
The screening for ready-to-serve loyalists has already begun, driven in part by artificial intelligence from tech giant Oracle, contracted for the project.
Social media histories are already being plumbed.
The most elaborate part of the pre-transition machine is a résumé-collection project that drills down more on political philosophy than on experience, education or other credentials.
Applicants are asked to "name one person, past or present, who has most influenced the development of your political philosophy" — and to do the same with a book.
Another query: "Name one living public policy figure whom you greatly admire and why."
