It's increasingly evident that Republicans intended to erect a sort of dictatorship, built on their control of government offices and funds. In their view, stuffing every agency with political hacks, adding new laws to increase their power to spy on us and harass us, awarding themselves generous servings of the taxpayers money- all of this would create a juggernaut that could safely ignore the will of the electorate.
That's right, these fiercely anti-government iconoclasts intended to rule us, not by the force of ideas, the popularity of their programs, or the accomplishments of their efforts, but simply by the power of government. That's right, the same government they are so busy wrecking.
Irony is lost on them.
