This post is in two parts. Part 1 covers the GOPs executive order hypocrisy and since this connects to their hypocrisy on being Americans and not dictators, part 2 covers how they are actually like tyrants rather than politicians one would expect in a democracy. (Yet another super long post)

Proof 1: Executive Order Hypocrisy

GOP have been calling "Executive Orders" the tool of a dictator for a long time (well, since Obama in any case). Now, of course, trump has completed more Executive orders in his first year than any President since Reagan

Trump is on pace to sign more executive orders than any president in the last 50 years

Here is a write up explaining the GOP's hypocrisy on Executive Orders (and thus their hypocrisy on their tyrant and dictator rhetoric of the last 8 years (before Trump).

Republicans Alarmed Over Obama’s Executive Orders, Cheer Trump’s On

For the past eight years, Republicans skewered President Obama as an "emperor" who acted outside of his "legal authority" for the executive orders he issued from the Oval Office. Now, they are cheering President Donald Trump as he issues a raft of his own.
Trump has signed a dozen executive orders in his first few days in office, tackling everything from rolling back the Affordable Care Act’s mandate to beginning construction on the Southern border wall to freezing federal hiring. Some Republicans cheered him on, while others, charged with overseeing and investigating executive oversight, have remained silent.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, who is now Trump's attorney general nominee, called Obama "emperor" for his use of executive action on immigration. He has not commented on Trump's dozen presidential actions.
House Speaker Paul Ryan condemned Obama's executive orders, calling a handful he issued a year ago aimed at reducing gun violence "a dangerous level of executive overreach." Following Trump’s immigration executive order signed Wednesday, he expressed support.
“This is about keeping Americans safe.” Ryan said in a statement on Wednesday. “I applaud President Trump for keeping his promise to make this a national priority.”
In a Thursday press conference, Ryan argued that Trump's executive orders were different — because he agreed with the actions.
"It's quite the opposite. President Obama used his pen and phone to exceed his powers in our perspective. Everything Obama did by executive order, this president can undo," Ryan said, arguing that Trump could also use executive orders to overcome barriers they've encountered in the past when attempting to build a wall on the Southern border.
During Obama’s term, the House Judiciary Committee went as far as to form a task force to probe executive authority accusing “presidents of both parties” of “legislating from the Oval Office,” but acknowledged its focus was Obama.
Rep. Steve King, who heads up the House Judiciary subcommittee on executive authority, declined through a spokesman to comment on Trump's use of executive order. The ranking Democrat on the subcommittee, Rep. Steve Cohen said he doubted the committee would act on Trump’s executive orders right now.
"They’ll probably push it down," Cohen told NBC News. “It will be a test to see if they’re consistent with their philosophy."
Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson said Obama had “exceeded his executive authority” and was acting “without legal authority" in 2014, following Obama’s immigration executive orders.
On Wednesday, he released a statement of support after Trump used an executive order to begin constructing a border wall.
“I welcome President Trump’s focus on these problems and look forward to reviewing today’s executive orders and working with the administration to accomplish our shared goals,” he said

History exposes GOP immigration outcry as bogus - Rachel Maddow reviews instances of Presidents Reagan and H.W. Bush taking executive action on immigration, contrary to anti-Obama Republicans who insist that President Obama's proposed action in the absence of a bill from Congress is unprecedented. 

Article Extract:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama's anticipated order that would shield millions of immigrants now living illegally in the U.S. from deportation is not without precedent.
Two of the last three Republican presidents — Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush — did the same thing in extending amnesty to family members who were not covered by the last major overhaul of immigration law in 1986.
There was no political explosion then comparable to the one Republicans are threatening now.
A tea party-influenced GOP is poised to erupt if and when Obama follows through on his promise. He wants to extend protection from deportation to millions of immigrant parents and spouses of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, and expand his 2-year-old program that shields immigrants brought illegally to this country as children.
"The audacity of this president to think he can completely destroy the rule of law with the stroke of a pen is unfathomable to me," said GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, an outspoken opponent of relaxing U.S. immigration law. "It is unconstitutional, it is cynical, and it violates the will of the American people." {Editors note: Steve King is one of the "Legitimate rape" RepublicansNot a guy you would want around your family. }
Such strong feelings are common among congressional Republicans. GOP leaders warn that an executive order from Obama would "poison the well" and severely damage Republicans' willingness to work with the president during his final two years in office.
Some Republicans have even raised the possibility of impeachment.
Nearly three decades ago, there was barely a peep when Reagan and Bush used their authority to extend amnesty to the spouses and minor children of immigrants covered by the 1986 law.
In 1986, Congress and Reagan enacted a sweeping overhaul that gave legal status to up to 3 million immigrants without authorization to be in the country, if they had come to the U.S. before 1982. Spouses and children who could not meet that test did not qualify, which incited protests that the new law was breaking up families.
Early efforts in Congress to amend the law to cover family members failed. In 1987, Reagan's Immigration and Naturalization Service commissioner announced that minor children of parents granted amnesty by the law would get protection from deportation.
Spouses and children of couples in which one parent qualified for amnesty but the other did not remained subject to deportation, leading to efforts to amend the 1986 law.
In a parallel to today, the Senate acted in 1989 to broaden legal status to families but the House never took up the bill. Through the INS, Bush advanced a new "family fairness" policy that put in place the Senate measure. Congress passed the policy into law by the end of the year as part of broader immigration legislation.
"It's a striking parallel," said Mark Noferi of the pro-immigration American Immigration Council. "Bush Sr. went big at the time. He protected about 40 percent of the unauthorized population. Back then that was up to 1.5 million. Today that would be about 5 million."

Here is another example of the GOP's hypocrisy on Executive Orders...

NATIONAL LEGISLATORS' UNEARNED VACATION 7/31/2014 Despite a growing list of unresolved crises, Congress spends the final hours before summer recess deciding to sue President Barack Obama.


Here is how hypocritical Trump is being (but like Wolf says in his book, Trump simply repeats back the last thing said to him - especially if its from Fox News, so when Trump said executive orders were wrong, he was simply lying, as he always does (see 'Trump is a dictator' proof for more on this)

Donald Trump has overtaken Barack Obama on executive orders

From playing golf to taking taxpayer-funded vacations, it seems Donald Trump has spent the first months of his presidency doing exactly what he pilloried Barack Obama for doing. 

And his penchant for signing executive orders is no exception. Back in 2012 Trump lambasted Obama for his use of executive actions to push forward his policies.

And yet, as the graph below reveals, Trump has signed more orders over the same period in office. 
The Executive Order hypocrisy is clear. So, is there any proof of the GOP being like tyrants and dictators themselves? (Tons actually). Well, here is yet another proof of the GOP being, basically, tyrants...

At Its Heart The GOP Is Really A Pro-Dictator Tyrannical Party

First, a look at Trump's pro-witch hunt and pro-dictator mindset...

TRUMP GETS DICTATOR-Y WITH THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT 1/9/2018 President Trump slams Attorney General Jeff Sessions for not protecting him in the Russia probe, and the Justice Department announces more Hillary Clinton investigations.

Trump believes he can use the Justice Department like his own justice system (like a dictator)...

Trump believes Obama was dishonest and Eric holder protected Obama AND TRUMP WANTS THAT TOO...

Trump was angry for Sessions following, well thought out and long established, laws for a balanced investigations...

Trump made it clear he wanted a witch hunt type director (Roy Cohn), so the Constitution and the rule of law it represents, means nothing to him, i.e. he LITERALLY wants to be a Nazi style dictator...

In other words, trump wants these sorts of sham trials going on...

Republicans continue their gift giving to the rich (and themselves)...

Republican gifts to big oil reject past oil disaster lessons Rachel Maddow looks at how Republicans have cut a tax on big oil that accumulates money for oil spill clean-ups, and rolled back safety rules put in place after the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon spill. Duration: 4:10

Clearly helping your other party members (by fulfilling their wishes) is a GOP tradition (Rick Scott is a Republican)...

Zinke randomly grants offshore drilling exception to Florida Rachel Maddow reports that after almost every governor of a coastal state raised objections to the Trump administration allowing oil companies to drill offshore, Secretary Zinke agreed to exempt Florida from the list after being asked by Rick Scott. Duration: 0:53

This is so crazy I don't have the words...

Trump appointee would force teen refugee to bear rapist's child Brigitte Amiri, senior staff attorney at the ACLU's reproductive freedom project, talks with Rachel Maddow about the fight to defend the reproductive rights of undocumented teens from Trump-appointed anti-abortion zealots in the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

Trump's Hoekstra 'lies about his lies' Donald Trump's pick for U.S. Ambassador to the Netherlands, Pete Hoekstra, was caught red-handed lying - and then lying some more. Duration: 3:08

i.e. it's like this...

They are even using fake comments, with Russia's help, to pass laws with LOW approval ratings! (How much more proof do we need that the GOP are dictators at heart and in thought in action?)...

American identities hijacked to fake support for Trump policies Rachel Maddow reports on an emerging pattern of public feedback on U.S. policy changes being stuff with fake comments from the hijacked identities of real Americans to show artificial support for Trump administration policies. Duration: 13:50

Clearly, when you pass a law against 83% of the Nation and 75% of your own party then Democracy is the least of your concerns, In fact, this is exactly what full blown dictators do, i.e. pass unpopular laws...

This unpopular move was passed on party lines, (i.e. GOP exposed thier desire to be dictators yet again)...
