After watching for the last three years, the only thing to take from politics is that destruction of opponents is the outcome. Ideas aren't discussed. The good of the U.S. is not considered, and regardless of who is destroyed in the process is not considered. Even those acting with honor become basically cannon fodder in the quest for unbridled power.
I'm watching to see how the latest coup attempt will turn out. The last one was a long dog and pony show, and those that broke the law appear to have escaped any prosecution. To those in the capitol, it's business as usual. To those at my level, it's obvious we are subject to laws, while those that swore to uphold the same laws break them with impunity.
I don't think there's any government created by humans can survive unscathed, when the leaders are criminals. Morals disappear, and the citizens either accept subjugation, or are murdered until any hope of relief disappears. We're at that point, and there are really only two paths for the U.S. to follow. One leads to the punishment of those wanting to remove liberty. The other does the same, but the rules of law are replaced by outright armed rebellion.
