trump just shot America dead on 5th Avenue and no one cares

mueller handed barr the pistol. barr loaded the pistol and handed it to trump. trump shot America dead on 5th Avenue and no one cares.

I don't think the full gravity of what just happened has sunk in yet. It happens in such small steps, by the time the last step is taken it's impossible to even realize we just stepped off a cliff into the abyss.

1. A LOT of people care and aren't looking the other way.

2. But being powerless kinda' sorta' negates all that

 

Nothing is going to happen. We're going to have two more years of trump and the gop shitting on our constitution then they're going to be reelected for another four years to shit on us some more.

This is why, even though we had 10 million more votes in the mid-terms than the repubicans, we still somehow couldn't take the senate.

The senate was the key to the puzzle. Keep one branch of the legislature in your pocket and the other doesn't matter. Keep your people in key positions in various governmental agencies and the agencies don't matter.

Just wait until trump's next nazi-themed reelection rally and you'll get a peak at the future whether you choose to look the other way or not.

18. All those extra millions are in blue states

Where a lot of people want to live, some of those states have better jobs, weather or just a environment of freedom.

They have more states than us with fewer people. Sickening to be controlled by the minority of the country.

19. The right wingnuts always like to complain

 

that democracy is a tyranny of the majority.

Turns out the only thing worse is a tyranny of the minority.

3. And now they're coming for Obamacare. Great.

Our government is now effectively being run by Fox News. The coup is complete. Fuck.

5. I'm so godam depressed

 

I don't want to believe it's true but it's true.

I don't want to be a buzzkill but people have to realize what's happened and what's coming.

We are in for a trip through hell and this ain't no Disneyland ride. It's the real thing.

16. Trump Derangement Syndrome isn't a thing, but Obama and Hillary Derangement Syndrome definitely is.

What would happen if these dipshits get their way and they are actually locked up? That would be a thought too scary to entertain.

17. Baby steps. Scary baby steps.

 

We're well on our way. The opposition will be left leaderless, dissent will be a crime and "presidential harassment" punishable by death.

"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

"This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter."

4. I agree

with OP.

Once trump knew he could get away with mocking a disabled reporter, openly admitting he could grab women without repercussions, etc. etc. ad nauseum, and still get elected Prez? Well, it was really all over, then....

8. You are absolutely correct.

And I don't see our country coming back from this. I am not an alarmist, but now, NOBODY will believe anything we say about Pussy Grabber. Hell, they probably won't even believe he DOES grab women by the pussy or anything else for that matter.

Republicans are fucking disgusting, and I loathe every single one.

We may be able to forge a resistance.

I know we will not go through this unscathed. This is bad. Really bad.
