Being shocked by Trump's unhinged tweets

Realizing the GOP is as awful as Trump

Waiting for a savior, like Mueller

Trusting someone "has a plan" to stop autocracy


Seeing the unvarnished truth

Knowing the rule of law is gone

Being our own leaders
Yes, it's stark to say 'the rule of law is gone." But seeing the unvarnished truth means not sugarcoating the awful reality we're facing.

#Trump is effectively above the law.

#Barr is a threat to democracy.

#Miller is torturing children.

#McConnell is stacking the courts.
Can we revive democracy? Can we reinstate the rule of law? Yes. But we have to acknowledge reality AS IT IS, not as we want it to be. We can't let ourselves become the proverbial frogs in boiling water, waiting for Mueller or Pelosi or Schumer or a 2020 candidate to save us.
If you want further evidence that the rule of law is no longer operative for this administration, look no further than the "paper of record" explicitly stating that complying with the law is optional.
