Outside their intentions we see the inability of republicans and trump in particular to do their jobs with efficient completeness. They would rather shrink into their cocoons of safety from the general public so that they can hide their actions of crushing democracy in order to maintain their control of government. Why is this so important? Because whoever controls government also controls the wherewithal of blood and treasure. They can start wars and move money where they want it without the consent of we the people. There is more than that though, republicans like controlling how people live. It is an ego thing with them, not a service thing we liberal/progressives aspire toward.
It has been less than a month since republicans have gained controlled our legislature and executive branch but already many scandals of honored traditional protocol and law breaking are emerging. None bigger that the controversial way trump and many republicans were elected. It seems that we can never let our guards down with republicans because servicing the public is not their motivation. Instead manipulating the public and taking from us is their goal. I am still hopeful a crisis can be avoided but anything less that tar and feathers for all republicans caught dishonoring the public trust will not be acceptable.
