The Fifth Dimension of Politics: the illegitimacy of Trump presidency

There is a natural progression occurring, starting with the rejection of the ersatz Trump presidency to the re-establishment of a real presidency. It’s a reaction to what Paul Krugman has deemed a tainted election, declaring the election to be illegitimate.

Paul Krugman: “So this was a tainted election. The result was illegitimate in important ways; the victor was rejected by the public, and won the Electoral College only thanks to foreign intervention and grotesquely inappropriate on the part of domestic law enforcement.”

Right to vote

I wanted to call inbut could not get through.

It totally drives me crazy when Thom talks about putting an affirmative right to vote in our Constitution.

There is no such thing as an affirmative right to anything in the United States Constitution. The ENTIRE thing is a bill of negative rights restricting the government. There is not a single ammendment in it that is an affirmative right.
