giandujakiss: (Dead Right)
And what's becoming of this country makes me want to cry.

Because I'm really that corny - I believe in the ideals on which this country was founded (even if they weren't actually in practice for most of its citizens at founding).

And right now I'm watching a major political party not only stonewall all attempts at legislation, but hold endless hearings on the opposing party's nominee. Hearings upon hearings; one hearing turns up nothing except grounds for another series of hearings - which then again turn up nothing so they have hearings on the the head of the FBI (who is a member of their party, who they previously praised as an impartial player).

All so they can ensure the election of Donald Trump, hero of white supremacists.

It is not only terrifying, it heralds the collapse of the American experiment. The system cannot function if there are no norms that constrain the pure will to power.
