We're once again having to learn the first lesson of federalism: "A government big enough to give you everthing you want is big enough to take everything you have."

By the time Trump would be impeached, there wont be enough organized federal government left to do much of anything. But that was precisely why trump was elected.

Think of the federal government as a carefully organized china shop, controlled since the time of Reagan by the elites who specialize in collecting power to the national government, necessarily at the expense of the power of the states. Hillary was the designated custodian of the china shop who would keep all those precious "Bits" of fragile precedent by which we are governed... and incidentally, by which the elites keep us in check and grow rich by controlling us.

To my mind, either Kasich or Sanders would have been the acceptable alternative to Hillary, who, quite frankly is much, much, too good at what she was created to do (ie.. keep the status quo)

As it turned out, the voting went against the china shop entirely. "Drain the Swamp", remember? The people who elected Trump were electing a Bull to run the China shop, and are sitting back having a beer and enjoying the crashing noises as both  Dem and Repub members of the elite look on in horror.

Me? Well, Kasich is my governor.... we'll see what the State of Ohio does.

In any case, make no mistake, Trump is doing exactly what he was elected to do.

Of course he is. His voter base turns out not to be poor Whites but richer Whites. This is what they want.
