Serious Power Grab

This is how it used to work in the third world. The ruling party likes power so they change the rules, and stack the deck, and guarantee that nobody can ever challenge their power again. This works in third world countries.

But we have the Constitution. The Constitution should protect us from dictators. It was written with that as its primary function.

If nobody in the legislative branch is willing to enforce the Constitution, and only a minority of the public cares, and the executive branch happily asserts (see Pistole) that Congress has no authority over them any more, then we don't have the Constitution, not in that sense.

You can have "a government of laws, not of men" only as long as the men in the government are honored for acting that way. They no longer are.

It's over. It's their country now, and it has been for quite some time.
