There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior. Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed. You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion. And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

John: Where does Trump come into all this?
The thing about Trump is that many people look at him as the answer to the question. “How do we ease the Republican Party out (and stuff them into the same closet the Whigs went into) and transition to an actual political party that can be differentiated from the Democrats?”.
One thing the GOP doesn’t understand, that 2012 and the Congressional majority they were handed was their last chance. They blew it. They will not be trusted again.
One thing the GOP and the Democrats don’t understand, that 2016 is the last chance for the electoral process to fix the damage and the loss of faith in our society, the economy and the rule of law. The last chance.
To the GOP, do you want to keep the majorities you have now? Start doing something. How about impeaching Obama, (no, we know that you can’t actually convict him without the removal of the Democrat traitors in the Senate) it would keep him busy and make a long overdue statement and might even drag some of the bodies out into the light of day.
Or you can do nothing and just sit and wait until you are swept away.
