Can American Democracy Survive?


American Democracy elected Trump. Why on earth would any sane person want THAT democracy to survive ?

very difficult to fix since part of the reason of all this Trump and republican thing is the mediocrity of the other party. Another reason also is the lazyness ignorance and contempt from "the people" of the USA towards civism and the democratic process. IMO salvation can only come from a ANTI TRUMP & GOP coalition. The problem is that coalition would likely mean everyone to regroup under the Democrats banner, while democratic party is also in a bad shape (offering Clinton for candidate while unpopular), it would end up in a problematic situation too. Can "the people" be smart enough to regroup against trump without giving too much to democrats after it ? i am not sure at all. I am not even sure they can kick out Trump and the GOP ...
