I find the negativity of conservatives a but strange ...

Government is a necessary evil.

Democratic government vs the anarchy of a Darwinistic death race without any rules.

and you think that is a choice????

no wonder conservatives are demented .... they prefer Darwinism to rule of law

I'm curious what is meant by "this government", Tim.

Ultimately, I think, the blame is with the voters. We have the power to prevent these abuses, but we refuse to exercise it. It was patently obvious that Trump was unsuited for the office of President but not enough citizens were motivated to prevent it. It has been patently obvious for at least a decade that Congress is incompetent to govern, yet we continue to send the same reprobates to "represent us." It is patently obvious that the Republican party is as corrupt, venal, and power mad as Caesars of old, yet they still exist as a "party". When was the last time a GOP member actually produced legislation that helped ordinary Americans?

And yes, Ma R, I blame you explicitly, notwithstanding the lack of impact your vote actually had (living as you do in a rationally-based commonwealth). You continue to support a party that does not have your interests anywhere in its calculus based upon some vague idea that it represents you. When? How? and if you say "Neil Gorsuch" - I'll puke.
