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.
