Much of what you say of Hillary is absolutely right, and she is a living breathing example of income inequality. But she was not an existential threat to American democracy.

With Trump headed to the White house the possibility that this is Germany 1933 is very high. We will know that for sure if the Donald recruits the Klan and neo-Nazis into his only private army of political terror.

Or the despotic Trump may under go some sort of epiphany of conscience and completely change his ruthless MO.
