*The 2020 general election, by every indication, will be about persuasion, with turnout expected to be at record highs. Our efforts are aimed at persuading enough disaffected conservatives, Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in swing states and districts to help ensure a victory in the Electoral College, and congressional majorities that don’t enable or abet Mr. Trump’s violations of the Constitution, even if that means Democratic control of the Senate and an expanded Democratic majority in the House.* … *But this president’s actions are possible only with the craven acquiescence of congressional Republicans. They have done no less than abdicate their Article I responsibilities.*

I think we are all missing the possibility that we are seeing a soft coup in progress initiated and pushed forward by the 1%. Everywhere we look we see the hands of Mercer’s, Adelson’s, Devos, Koch’s, Americans for Prosperity, the Federalists, Chambers of Commerce, and then of course Mega church pastors. The Koch’s have made it no secret they believe America would be better off if the likes of themselves were running things and the people would just focus on work and making babies. We are at a very dangerous place right now. If McConnell gets his way (and he will) nothing will stop Trump from doing anything he wants going forward. We will have lost our country to a dictator.

>(T)his president’s actions are possible only with the craven acquiescence of congressional Republicans. They have done no less than abdicate their Article I responsibilities. As have republican voters. Is there anything that will finally turn the tide or will they support this administration to its foul end?

Sorry, Republicans, this *is* conservatism. It has always been a corrupt and evil philosophy. Trump is you and you are Trump. Conservative Republicans, tell us your guiding principles, show us examples of how they have been put into practice, and show published research demonstrating the positive impact for the majority of Americans of those principles in action.

If Trump is impeached and does face repercussions, it’s going to be funny to watch the entirety of the Republican party scurrying like rats on a sinking ship trying to distance themselves from Trump before they go down with him, hoping everyone conveniently forgets their complacency up until that point and how they helped create the conditions that caused all this.
