In the future, I’m afraid 2016 will be remembered as the end of the American Republic. The quick and easy way the Republicans have slid into Fascism is alarming, and their willing to suspend political norms, the rule of law, and the constitution for power is even more alarming than the Neo-Nazis and plutocrats the Tangerine Caligula is appointing–we can expect no moral leadership from such unprincipled hypocrites. Hannah Arendt’s depiction of the rise of the worst atrocity in human memory is repeating itself, within living memory of the previous.
In all honesty, I would not be surprised if there are no elections in 2024. Maybe already in 2020.
