We keep talking like government is going to remain the same, but with a different President. NOT SO!
If/when Trump declares himself Dictator, there won't be a two-party government nor a system of checks and balances. Any facsimile of a congress will just be loyal bobbleheads just to keep up the pretense.
Dictators are authoritarian rulers who use fear (not legislation) to control the public. Any civil opposition to a Dictator ends up in a kangaroo court, prison or forced into fleeing for his life.
If Trump's own crazy talk is any indication, especially about the media, education and social programs you can expect worse, maybe even quadruple, cruelty. Depend on it! He has no, zero, nada conscience.
