Personally, what I think was really at stake in the 2016 presidential election was the survival of individual freedom in the USA. We came within inches of losing individual freedom in the USA forever.
And we are now seeing proof of the raw liberal power that was in place to pounce. That raw liberal power is now flexing its muscles showing its disappointment and displeasure by attempting to take down a legal elected president of the USA.
Sure, through Trump individual freedom escaped this time, but unless the 1938 fair labor wage law is repealed it is impossible to stave off the liberals much longer, the future is on their side and they will soon get their victory.
It saddens me, but the USA no longer has the wisdom or the will to do what must be done to stop our shallow minded liberal friends from causing USA total destruction.
