It turns out a heartbreaking percentage of the population — and nearly 100% of Congressional Republicans — simply don’t care too much about well-ordered democracy. Or, worse, have contempt for it and the very foundations of this country.
I am watching a Frontline episode about young people, protesting and fighting to remain a democracy. Whatever they can do against the tyranny of China they'll do. And here we have people, for a few bucks--for a continued (since Obama) great stock market, who will let ours be destroyed in three short years.
