What does it take to destroy a country? Umair thinks five and I think two on the outside. At one level you can see Trump’s incompetence as his failures mount. On the other you see the hardcore (all Trump has left are hardcore followers)as they chant their memes. The loss of rationality and respect is nearly complete.

This is not a slow decline. It might appear slow but we are very close to the time when people stop and write-off the country. We now have two Republican senators who are calling it what it is and will have no more to do with it so they are are able to say what needs to be said. Last year that might have worked. What’s it going to do now? The wall of loyalty at any price is broken. Two senior and respected senators have turned on the usurper. How fast will more decide to be on the right side of history?

I think the trickle will become a torrent. People are realizing everyday that we have almost nothing left to lose. And what will happen in 2018 if you want to wait? The party system is in complete collapse. Even the Democrats have only the hardcore left. Does it even matter? I don’t think so . . .
