If the riot had continued, the Merican Democracy could have ended. Many Republicans believe the election was stolen. Many Congressmen and Senators are pushing the Big Lie. This game is only paused. When the Republicans Lose another election they will be convinced it was stolen again and they don't have a voice. If Democrats become apathetic, the Republicans will be reelected. The Republicans have no boundaries. I don't believe Merica will survive in it's present form with a return of Republicans. Their intent is to retain power, not govern. A bitter divorce is happening and a house divided will not stand.
