Robert Kagan: “Our constitutional crisis is already here”

  • Editor’s note: Every American should read this, for we have been warned about our future!

+ Daily Kos: Robert Kagan offers a terrifying treatise on Trump and the future of the nation

+ The Washington Post: Robert Kagan: “Our constitutional crisis is already here”

Kagan writes, “The United States is heading into its greatest political and constitutional crisis since the Civil War, with a reasonable chance over the next three to four years of incidents of mass violence, a breakdown of federal authority, and the division of the country into warring red and blue enclaves. The warning signs may be obscured by the distractions of politics, the pandemic, the economy and global crises, and by wishful thinking and denial. But about these things there should be no doubt:

First, Donald Trump will be the Republican candidate for president in 2024. The hope and expectation that he would fade in visibility and influence have been delusional. He enjoys mammoth leads in the polls; he is building a massive campaign war chest; and at this moment the Democratic ticket looks vulnerable. Barring health problems, he is running.

Second, Trump and his Republican allies are actively preparing to ensure his victory by whatever means necessary.
