That is interesting


I guess from the point of view of caring about this country, and it's future, I could take some comfort from feeling like the checks and balances of the three branches are in place. But now, I really think the future of the USA is in serious doubt.

Even if the dems take BOTH house and senate (not going to happen), and EVEN if Trump is replaced in 2020 (and that is in doubt, since most of the coutry has been against him, but the Donor Class has managed to control all three branches now), the future where teh GOP does NOT come back (and it will in it's CURRENT form, not reformed, I think that is obvious), then I really would say democracy in AMerica can see the waning days of self rule. THere is a REASON that Trump is so enamored withe Putin and China and N Korea, he is building a model, and he is HALFWAY there. ANd it isn't Trump's model, it is the power of the donor class.

You should be in a panic, and you say you don't care.
