Working with a Tyrant: Governing from Within

This New York Times editorial is gutsy and calls out Donald Trump. It is well overdue. The lack of truth, the fabricated truth, no truth, all adds up to either you disregard reality and go Trump, or you question how this administration can come to pass.

All ages have their tyrants. They are psychopaths that can be charismatic and draw followers into his fold. I worked for one but they quickly removed me. You either believe or they chew you up and spit you out. This is where you find out if you have the backbone to stand up for who you believe you are and how you were brought up, or fold into the morass.

I welcome truth from the US, irregardless of source. Those with opportunity will work from within to guide the country along the path the US usually takes, as a leader of the free world.

The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.

To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.

But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.

That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office…

Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.
