The presidential fetish

Impeaching Trump would be just and cathartic. But the more urgent danger than Trump is the Republican party that would retain and perhaps expand its power without him. We should be profoundly concerned about the possibility that Trump will attempt to become a despot — but we should be urgently distressed by the actuality of Republicans attempting to further entrench plutocracy. Would we be more or less vigilant of Congress, the Court, and state governments without Trump? Does he focus or distract us?
