I've been reading Justia for their summaries of influential court cases, this morning's email included this: Neil H. Buchanan on Justia: Trump’s Coup Failed, But He Gave Republicans a Road Map to Ending Constitutional Democracy…Soon. Not about the assault on the Capitol, but the prospects for further undermining the legal system.

So his argument is that things could have gone really bad had those people not stood up and done the right thing. I would suggest that people standing up and doing the right thing is the only reason we have lasted this long. Why did the insurrection fail? Because even the majority of Trump supporters thought that was going too far. They did the right thing when it was important. I think the vast majority of us do the right thing when the choice is clearly presented to us.
