Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

Why did Republicans vote for the Omnibus Spending Bill?

 It is not possible for me to accurately speculate about the motivations of specific individuals or groups of people, particularly in regards to a specific piece of legislation. There are many factors that can influence how a person or group votes on a particular issue, and it is likely that the decision to support the Omnibus Spending Bill was influenced by a combination of factors.

The Omnibus Spending Bill is a piece of legislation that provides funding for the federal government and its various agencies and programs. It is typically passed by Congress each year to ensure that the government has the resources it needs to operate.

Voting in favor of the Omnibus Spending Bill could have been influenced by a variety of considerations, such as a belief that the government needs a certain level of funding to carry out its responsibilities, a desire to support specific programs or initiatives that are funded by the bill, or a belief that the bill represents a compromise that is in the best interest of the country.

Again, it is not possible for me to accurately speculate about the specific reasons why Republicans voted for the Omnibus Spending Bill. It would be best to ask the individual lawmakers or their staff for more information about their motivations.
