#1 One of the basic principles of the Constitution was 'never concentrate power that you'd never want your political rival to have'. The Donks will rue the day they created such a monstrosity of imperial authority.

#2 Not if they can create a permanent culture of dependency in 50.5% of the voters, p2k.

As a fallback, they'll scream bloody civil rights murder if anyone else tries what they're doing.

#3 Maybe, but every time in history there comes a point where you have to defend the system, to paraphrase Lincoln, to give their last full measure of devotion. When that day comes, they'll have a lot of 'dependent' cannon fodder but little else to retain power. It won't be enough. Never has.

#4 If it comes to that, yes .... provided we don't go the way of Germany's army.
