Just when you think it could not get any worse for America?

Just wait! Trump is starting to take over the courts and won't stop until he abolishes the Supreme Court! If he can't be stopped than look out? I hate to be so bleak, but our democracy is going down the tube! Thanks GOPers! You could have and should have stopped! I blame each of you for letting a lump ass lame brain rip the constitution to shreds! Just wait until he turns on your party and let's see what you will do then?

1. I see what you mean.

It is not hard to extrapolate on what we are seeing, and maybe it can provide a sense of urgency and warning, as well.

I don't think the GOP would have any remorse about enabling a Trump Regime. Since they manage to identify with him, then rather than being fearful or alarmed by such an outcome, they have a sense of connection to the outcome and anticipate a share of power in the process.

That's my take on their possible motivation and I have written a little more on it depth before. I think that shame, taking blame or fear have nothing to do with their complicity. It is about pride, claiming victory and fearlessly marching into a tyranny for them. I mean, they must see were this is going, right?

"Honey, hurry, it's almost 5:00 pm. We better get out front and do our ten minutes of bowing to our King Trump statue so the neighbors won't report us and we won't be put in the cages again! Oh my God, where's your holy orange wig? You have to have it on when we worship."

2. Republican David Frum nailed it earlyl on.

He wrote that if GOP thought they were losing their majority power, they would subvert the Constitution itself rather than lose.

And here we are.

It is really the white majority they must keep. And demographics are against them.

5. Yes, they want a white majority but that is obviously slipping away

So, the new goal is to engineer a system of white minority rule where their policies, which are not respected by majority, are in full force.

6. He wasn't "early on", unless that only counts Republicans willing to admit it

This has been evident since 1992, when Bush lost and they pulled out all the stops to try to sink the Democratic president. Everything since has been perfecting their technique.

3. If Trump were to abolish the Supreme Court he would be impeached by the ...

House and this time the Senate would remove him from office.

If not there would be an armed uprising in this nation and Trump the tyrant would be quickly overthrown.

4. I don't think the Constitution allows for the executive to abolish the judiciary

However, if his pal, VVP, were to arrange the demise of the four Democratic-appointed justices, and he and McTurtle were to appoint and confirm four more Alito-Kavanaugh clones on their place, my bet is that not one Republican Senator (maybe Romney excepted?) would vote against the new "nominees." Collins and Murkowski would, as a consolation prize, voice their concern.
