15. Absolutely correct.

Unfortunately, this is spot on.

I've seen a number of posts here talking about how the momentum is building to remove Trump from power and I'm seeing the exact opposite. I see a lot of impotent bitching and moaning and complaining and exclamations of horror.

What I don't see is that there is anyone in the Republican Party that is a patriot any longer. The game is about money and power and that is all that matters to them. Most of their constituents feel exactly the same way. As long as they are on the winning side and get to call the shots they don't care if our entire system crumbles. It all comes down to who's ox is getting gored.

And, right now it is ours. But we don't have the power and we let the entire system be rigged against us to the point that the majority no longer rules in this country.

To turn this around is going to require a mobilization of progressive voters unlike anything before in the history of the United States.
