At some point the question becomes, “How long do we put up with this bullshit?”
Or do we believe that the Constitution will restore itself?
I once had faith in the average American, but during the first Bush’s presidency (or it could have been early in the Clinton era), the government admitted that during the Cold War they had injected pregnant women with plutonium to see what would happen, and nobody cared. It made front page news, but the response was a collective sigh and some weak acknowledgment that the Cold War sure was a quaint era.
So, we will probably take whatever the government dishes, and deserve even worse. My view of the average American is fairly grim.
