Anti-America Sentiment on the Rise . . .among Republicans

It has long been noted that those for whom the system (whatever system we have in mind) works well want things to continue as is, while those for whom the system does not work want change. That is built right into the foundations of our nation because, naturally, our 17th century immigrants were nearly all from the we-need-change group.

Now we are in the odd position of the “conservatives” suddenly becoming the change agents. They feel so strongly that Washington is a mess that they are willing to threaten our most fundamental American institutions, such as our elections, our presidency, and Congress itself.

One former congressman says he’ll grab his musket if trump loses. Others — such as Ted Cruz and Richard Burr and John McCain — say they will never let the senate consider a supreme Court nominee from Clinton. And the petty little candidate for president, along with his obsequious little toadies, promise to create a constitutional crisis if he loses.

The will of the American people? The validity of an election? The stability of a gracious acceptance of defeat? None of these values, so essential to the American way, matters in the slightest to anti-Americans like trump and Cruz.

It is my increasingly firm conviction that trump is a far, far more serious threat to America than ISIS ever can be. He is the enemy in our midst, the enemy of America and the enemy of democracy itself.
