The sad thing is that this guy is right, but there is nothing we can do about it. If there is one thing the recent debacle over gun background checks proved, it really doesn't matter what the correct course is for this country to take. The Right can, and will, block it. Polls show that 2/3rds of Americans wanted the background checks. Doesn't matter. Democracy is dead. The minority can stop anything at any time. And they have gerrymandered their districts to the point that they cannot be thrown out. Stalemate.
