I see what is happening with the GOP as inevitable. People were talking violence and revolution the day Obama was elected, so there's absolutely nothing new going on, other than the crazies have more representation in Washington.
What I'm hoping for is... The majority of American's will continue to reject the crazy. If that's the case, then them doubling down on the crazy plays right into the hands of the D's.
I think the Right is crazier than most think. I think we're in for a lot of homegrown terrorism over the next 20-40 years as the "Anglo-Saxon Values" crowd loses more and more power, and slip into irrelevance. They're not going without a fight.
I think this is spot on analysis, front sight.
I think we are going to have a major issue with right wing political violence. ...but I’m actually less concerned about that —- it plays into a centrist message if the dems can stay the course and just be the “not crazy alternative” for Americans.
What I do think is an existential crisis for our system is the vote suppression efforts that will keep even a kooky, rejected by 60% - Republican minority , authoritarian, rule in power. The next time they get within striking distance of the White House they aren’t letting it go, US constitution be damned.
The democrats need to put that first and foremost, and I don’t see them doing it.
