If they follow through on their plans to end the filibuster, pack the Senate by adding one to two new states, then pack the Supreme Court, and institute eco-fascism in the guise of the Green New Deal, America's status as a functioning constitutional republic will be at an end.

Year in Review: The presidential election in a nutshell
2016 Saw the rise of the populist in politics, both on the right and the left. On the left, you had an aging senator from Vermont attracting a young and enthusiastic crowd of budding socialists.
