It's hard to imagine our politics becoming more bizarre than they are with the crazy New Yorker and all his cretinous followers, but Cruz lurks; and he's likely not alone.
And what about Cliven Bundy, right-wing rancher who attracted hundreds of gunmen that led to our government caving on seizing & auctioning his cattle for unpaid land-use. Now it is clear what it takes to stop the long arm of the law from executing enforcement actions - then months/years go by with no follow-up. Civics books will have to be re-written to reflect the new reality of "government of laws."
This will be a very interesting and informative election campaign season; we may learn more about the reality of our system of information and government.
