“I alone can fix it”

For all the lies and distortions in Donald Trump’s acceptance speech Thursday night, this one phrase ought to send chills through every American– left, right or center– with a belief in constitutional democracy and the rule of law.

Trump went on to say that Bernie Sanders’s supporters will join “our movement.” Sorry, Donald. Maybe a handful will, but the overwhelming majority won’t go anywhere near your campaign.

And Bernie himself is having none of it.

Yes, that’s why– given the awful choice of a Trump presidency or a Cruz presidency– I would choose the latter. Cruz at least has a grasp of constitutional principles.
