The saying some use is, “Soap box, ballot box, jury box, cartridge box. In that order.” Way I see it, we’re in the “jury box” phase with these scandals. That’s all I have to say about that.

Actually, there's one interim step between the third and last box, and that is massive, widespread civil disobedience. I didn't say violence. I said civil disobedience, like what Gandhi and MLK used to force sweeping social change.

I would argue that we're between step three and four right now, and that we still have a window of opportunity to peacefully restore our republic to its foundational moorings.

But as they say, "opportunity waits for no man." We'd better hurry, or we'll be left with but one terrible option.
