There is no question that the US political system is terminally sick ! Democracy is in name only. vested interests & money rule. The skids may be out for the Dems their "top table"continues to stifle real change. Too often the "grass roots" are ignored, the hierarchy is distinctly tainted & corrupted by vested interests. They simply follow failed processes of the past - & fail they do as the record shows !

Opinion | If McConnell Packs the Court on Behalf of Minority Rule, Dems Must Expand and Reform It

They ought to come in prepared to introduce serious reform so that our laws reflect the will of our 330 million people rather than that of a few corrupt billionaires allied with hypocritical religious fundamentalists.

Trump is a "twisted" bastard - he will regularly contort the law to suit his own narrative & lies at the time in a flagrant way - be aware ! He will hoodwink the gullible to succor his bombastic cunning & use it to flout & sidestep if it is to his advantage !

Republicans have used a 'law and order' message to win elections before. This is why Trump could do it again
