The Republic is dead

“This election is about whether the Democratic Party, the ruling class’s enforcer, will impose its tastes more strongly and arbitrarily than ever, or whether constituencies opposed to that rule will get some ill-defined chance to strike back.

“Regardless of the election’s outcome, the republic established by America’s Founders is probably gone. But since the Democratic Party’s constituencies differ radically from their opponents’, and since the character of imperial governance depends inherently on the emperor, the election’s result will make a big difference in our lives.”

A good article worth a read.

The Hildabeast would try to rule by emperor fiat, as our Little Barry Hussein has done with his executive orders. I think Trump probably would try not to, at least at first. He’s a deal-maker who can negotiate with Congress as Barry cannot. But he probably would be seduced into executive orders by the intransigence of the Democrat federal bureaucracy.

  1. Never give up Stanley. I know it looks bad and in some ways it is, but in the days before and during the Revolution it looked a lot worse. I will never get down, sure it’ll take effort and I may not survive the effort, but I will never give up.
    These people are going to do anything to keep the power they finally have usurped, to expect them to do otherwise would be foolish. We mainly have ourselves to blame for the current state of affairs. Through laziness and inattention we allowed this to happen, yes it creeped up (frog boiling and all of that), but it was our fault.
    Oh well in human affairs nothing is permanent, nothing. The Dems don’t believe that and it will get them.

  2. There’s a big difference between pessimism, realism, and giving up,
    Sennacherib. I don’t think Dick meant we should give up, but he can certainly speak for himself. I know I ain’t giving in to despair, though it looks pretty hopeless. I still believe in fighting until I can’t fight any more. No surrender. No quarter.

  3. And be cheerful JD. Nothing confounds the SOB’s more than that. That’s something Churchill did that impressed me. I am with you on your last sentence!

  4. Easy to say, increasingly hard to do. They have the federal bureaucracy, most of the universities, the majority of the news media, and all of the entertainment industry. Lester the other night had been openly warned what could happen to his career if he didn’t become the third debater leaning on Trump. Even if Trump wins he’ll have a very hard time changing anything.
