News Item: “More than 40 percent of Republicans are favorably disposed, in one poll, toward a presidency unfettered by constitutional checks and balances.” A lot of people, feeling frustrated, want a cure-all. They don’t want to live in a messy divisive democracy. Just think how much could be accomplished if the president didn’t have to deal with all these investigations, and now impeachment, which will consume even more time with a useless senate trial.

The pervasiveness of such delusional thinking is appalling. Everyone of good will must fight to disperse the toxic fog of slurs, lies, and fabrications that Trumpians  pump into the atmosphere day after day after day.
