It is things like this added together with many, many others that is convincing more and more people that this mess in Washington cannot be fixed.  It simply is not possible to repair something that is this badly damaged.

Ever see a runaway diesel engine??  It runs on its own oil until it is so hot it finally seizes.  That's how I see where we are right now.  At some point you toss out all of the trash and start over again.  It may be necessary to tear out the whole crankcase right down to the foundations and build something new in its place; but trying to repair anything while simultaneously trying to make it run will never work on anything.

Agreed.

But - to inject a note of optimism - can you think of any country better suited to do that?

I know there are effectively two Americas right now. You got the gimme lot. And you got the ones who take a look at a cracked battery casing, roll up their sleeves and say "Pass the epoxy." Fixers, if you prefer.

I trust the fixers.

I agree.

Could we be nearing a time of a "Second Declaration of Independence"?

A renunciation of the DC government, to be replaced with.... the original Constitution?

How might such a Declaration be made?
And who to make it?

Today, no one can trust the government or any government agency. You laugh at the DOJ in terms of being honest. You cannot trust the GOP or the Dems.
 
This really would have to be a full insurrection. It would have to be a real Bastille Day moment. That is the only way.
 
I am not endorcing this, I am only answering an intellectual question. In the NAZI land we all live in today, I do not want the Feds up my ass.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

I'm supposed to believe that Selective Service still has records from the 1800s, yet the IRS doesn't have emails from 4 years ago?  O is spitting our faces, and he's loving it.  He's now selling out his black base for some additional Hispanic voters.

Of course they do! All they had to do is check the VA waiting lists.
