24. "There is a good chance that this country and its institutions will survive Trump"

Disagree. It barely survived Shrub and he paid lip service to the idea of democracy. TrumpenFuhrer is openly contemptuous of it. With a high probability of SCOTUS becoming a 6-4 or worse conservative majority it's will be a mere rubber stamp to the 'Bagger agenda. I fully expect to see all of the following to receive favorable decisions within the next 8 years

Strict voter photo ID
Immunity for cops who shoot first, ask questions later
National right to work
Gutting Roe v. Wade
Religious freedom decisions legalizing LGBT discrimination
Drug testing for assistance including food stamps

I'd rather take my chances in a place that has an institution like the ECHR keeping an eye on things than a compliant, partisan life appointed Supreme Court.
