Agree about the MPs/Government though. They are in for a rude awakening once they are left to fend for themselves. They cant do it now with all the US might/money.
At some point, it seems to me, Unca Sam is going to have to decide this is a lost cause. I can only imagine it's vanity or stupidity (POTUS lavishly endowed with both) that stands in the way, unless I'm missing a coherent grand strategy emanating discreetly from The Donald's office.
