@donwinslow Our system put too much faith in fundamentally decent people following norms, guidelines, traditions and ethics. Not all of the Founders were not convinced that would always be true. They were correct. The door Trump has opened can't be closed without a fundamental reworking.
@donwinslow Three co-equal branches of U.S. government is the foundation of our system. We don't have a monarchy. The Presidency is not regal. The office should be held in no higher esteem than the Speaker of the House, Senate Majority Leader and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Trump & Barr are testing the waters by deploying nameless, faceless paramilitary squads in US cities.

In the months before the 1933 German election, Brownshirts & SS displayed "terror, repression & propaganda across the land", and Nazi organizations "monitored" the vote process.
In Prussia 50,000 members of the SS, SA and Der Stahlhelm were ordered by acting Interior Minister Hermann Göring to act as "auxiliary police" and monitor the votes.
This would be the last contested election held in Germany before World War II. Two weeks after the election, Hitler was able to pass an Enabling Act on March 23 with the support of all non-socialist parties, which effectively gave Hitler dictatorial powers.
