Read This, And Then Live With It

by Philip Baruth

Decrying activists and activist judges at every turn, the national GOP has always managed to distract attention from its own disturbing tendency to actively subvert America’s democratic process. But check out this very thoughtful piece over at the Washington Post. Concise, logical, well-argued, and it winds up with the conclusion that if the GOP is willing to destroy government at its roots — the popular vote — then there is nothing Democrats can do but fight fire with fire. Not a pleasing conclusion, but at least it’s a conclusion. Which we’ll settle for, most days these days.
