A teaching moment:

politicalprof:

as TrumpBannonConwaySpiceretc try their schemes, it is time to teach them the limits of their power.

They must learn that the price of their actions is the ungovernability of the nation. Orders must be subverted. Implementation must be prevented. Congress needs to learn that if they support the Trumperians, they will be wiped out politically.

There are A LOT more of us than there are of them. Their coup only works if we abet it.

I sympathize with this assessment. And cautiously, albeit publicly, support it.
