What If They Just Do Nothing?

What if they just don't care?

The possibilities that we thought were facing this country were two:  Either Trump would be proven to have colluded with a foreign dictator to win the White House, and would be rapidly removed from office, or the evidence just wouldn't be there, in which case he would probably go on conspiring with his fellow Republicans to rape the country.

There is a third possibility, and it is becoming more and more likely every day; right now I think it is the most likely result of all of this:  Trump will be proven to be a traitor, and his fellow Republicans, the only people who can do what needs to be done, will just refuse.  They will let the traitor stay in power because he can be guaranteed to do the bidding of the few hundred rich sociopaths that are their only real constituency, and because the mob that they have spent four decades creating would crush them to death if they try to do the right thing.  And thus our country will die.

"And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,   Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

I also expressed the fact we are desperately depending on the Party of Trump to hold their leader accountable. Won't happen. Party over country, wealth uber alles.

The only hope is those actually running for re-election do something when their jobs are threatened. Of course their job is not to represent the American people, but their elite masters. When their master's bottom line gets hurt, then they'll act. But by then the damage will be done.

America has been dying a slow death since 2001. The cancer is malignant and growing.

...Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity...

You know I agree with you 100%. Sad, huh?
