Now what?

We have known for four years now that Donald Trump would rather be the head of state of a “banana republic,” and has worked toward those ends. But an election stopped him.

Now 126 members of Congress signed a letter supporting a suit by Texas to the Supreme Court to nullify the votes of eighty million people. Including our own congresswoman, they want to scuttle 240 years of America’s experiment in democracy (that has worked out pretty well, all things considered) for an un-elected dictatorship.

Should they be seated in the new Congress, although they have expressed a preference for another form of government ?
