This is a MUST READ. ThinkProgress issues a warning to all of us.

It's a fairly long read but very worthwhile. It's full of information about Trump and what could happen to our nation with him at the helm.

The Democratic Party is screwing up its opposition to President-elect Donald Trump. They can’t help it.

The reason why is that democrats — that is, small “d” democrats, referring broadly to people who believe in democracy — are ill-suited to address the threat posed by Donald Trump.

Those of us who agree with the Declaration of Independence that governments derive their legitimacy from the consent of the governed are poorly equipped to resist Trump. Those of us who agree that governments exist to secure “certain unalienable Rights” are fighting with one hand tied behind our backs.

We have brought a sheet of parchment and a set of abstract principles to a knife fight. We’re going to get cut.
