And, as abhorrent as he and his evil desires are, the most disturbing revelations of this administration have shown us how weak our system is. We, or at least I, thought we had checks and balances to prevent a self-serving dictator-wannabe from doing what he has done. I am appalled at how many gigantic holes there are in our government, how much power the president can wield without the votes from Congress, and how crooked these people are (I am including other administration hacks and Congress) and how little we can do to hold them in check or make them accountable or throw them out of office.

Perhaps, we should feel fortunate that our nation made it 240 years before someone exposed and took advantage of its glaring defects. It definitely will not survive another 240 years — probably, not even one, at least not as the country we once knew.
