At Every Level of Government, the Democratic Party is Dead

But before Republicans start celebrating the Democrats' demise, they have the little matter of resolving a civil war that could still result in the GOP spinning off one or more parties. The test will come during Donald Trump's first term. How many NeverTrump Republicans will give the new president and his supporters in Congress what they want?

The Trumpers have been handed the keys to the kingdom. Will they use them to govern? Or will their newly won power be used in a futile attempt to punish their enemies in and out of the GOP?

With the Democrats in a hyper-weakened state, Republicans have an opportunity that comes along only once every couple of generations -- to put their imprint on history and create a governing structure reflective of conservative principles and values.

Please, God, don't let them screw it up.
