Seems like at the moment, democracy is working on two channels, to undermine the party.
The first in the democracy #overthere, voting out Beijing in favor of Democracy.
And then in the democracy #overHere, with it’s pesky Constitution, messing up Trump’s veto.
You think anyone’s clued Xi in to Article 1, Section 7 yet?

It’s like the scaled up version of the UK’s House of Commons, negotiating against the monolithic EU. Will they, won’t they? A geopolitical manifestation of Ross and Rachel on Friends. if you will. Then again that lasted ten seasons…
Our is not to reason why, ours is but to see that gap, and go buy gamma accordingly.
