Self-described “Proud Democrat” Andy Ostroy issued a tweet on Saturday asking Republicans and independents whether they would prefer to have a democracy or fuel that costs $2.50 per gallon.

“Serious question for Republicans and independents: What would you rather have, $2.50/gallon gas or a democracy?” Ostroy tweeted.

Americans have been getting slammed by skyrocketing gas prices — as of Monday, the AAA national average price for a gallon of regular gas has reached a whopping $5.014.

“I’ll take $2.50 gas and a Constitutional Republic. C’mon man. You don’t even know what form of government the US is,” one response to Ostroy’s post read.

“This is, in point of fact, a very unserious question,” someone else tweeted.

“I’ll take a Republic and non-Marxist economic policies that would make cost of living and gas affordable again. America isn’t a democracy,” someone else tweeted.

“We had both under Trump. Now we have neither,” another tweet said.

On Monday, Ostroy issued a tweet in which he said, “As predicted, Republicans took the bait. Simple question. Obvious answer is democracy. If only these people got as angry about #Trump’s/the right’s assault on our elections and democracy as they do about gas prices perhaps a bunch of folks, incl Trump, would be in prison now…”

Ostroy has declared that Trump “came in an incompetent, self-serving, corrupt, dangerous sociopath traitor & left even worse.”

The House Select Committee to probe the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot is holding hearings — Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois are the only two Republican members on the Select Committee, and both GOP lawmakers voted in favor of impeaching then-President Donald Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6 episode.

“It’s impossible when watching insurrection footage not to conclude that that day was purely a manifestation of 157 years of white male racist rage which the evil genius #Trump masterfully exploited for personal gain. Period. End…of…story… #January6thCommitteeHearings #Trump,” Ostroy tweeted.
