We May Not Be as Lucky Next Time
It appears that, battered and bruised, American democracy will survive a while longer. The hyper-narcissistic aspiring dictator will be ushered out of the White House by January 20th. It’s more than disturbing how close he came to winning, and it’s more than disturbing contemplating how he would have behaved if he had. It’s more than distressing how so many Republicans in positions of power were willing to support his autocratic ambitions, and that many still are ––echoing and amplifying his hysterical protestations and baseless accusations. Suppose Trump had been less glaringly incompetent, and more devious. more clever, more Machiavellian. We may not be as lucky next time.
