Sometimes it takes awhile for the words to come together...

but there's a word or a concept that fairly accurately describes the present state of the Union.

We are on the verge of collapse.

We are teetering on the edge.

We shouldn't be thinking in terms of a mere Constitutional Crisis. There's a good chance that we are already beyond the "turning point."

We only have a Democratic majority in the House that is between the United States and governmental collapse. If and/or when that happens, societal collapse will follow.

If we observe the entirety of Trumpy's behavior patterns since his campaign, we can easily conclude that Trumpy has always wanted to abolish the separation of powers and become an autocratic dictator. No, not "King." Dictator. Please note that Putin is reputed to be worth between 600 and 800 Billion dollars. That's what Trumpy wants. He knows how Putin got it, and he adores Putin's business plan.

BTW, I strongly dislike depictions from some in the general resistance camp who describe Trumpy as a wannabe KING. They're being too kind for an unknown reason. "King" implies that there might be something beneficial about being royalty, even if a king "can do no wrong." There is no redeeming value if Trumpy were to fully realize autocratic rule. Trumpy has no capacity to bestow kindness on anyone. The more power he obtains the more brutal he'll become. We've only seen the beginning.

Unless we rescue ourselves with effort and sacrifice, we'll see collapse. Soon.

2. I'd like to think that you are wrong.

But unfortunately I think that you are correct in your assessment.
