I know I editorialize a lot in my political opinion, but I try and leaven it with substance and fact. I provide links to suitable and responsible sources of information. This post departs from that. It is nearly all straight opinion, but since the president of the US tweeted that Obama had wire tapped him, the Republican Congress has said that they need to investigate the claim, and the Republican Obamacare replacement bill has been released, I realized a thing or two about our crumbling democracy: the Republicans are not even trying to govern. They are just grabbing with both hands like a common single party totalitarian state.
