10. yeah, this idea that if only things get bad enough, people will take action

Is horrific. Not only because the people who espouse this idea aren't the ones who will suffer or die when things get bad, but also because it dismisses the things people already do to stop things the Republicans want. In many states, Democrats are the only thing that is keeping horrific legislation from passing. For heaven's sake, in some states Democratic legislators have fled the state to try to stop the Republicans. Wendy Davis filibustered for hours.

How far do they want the US to regress before they get their revolution. How many people are they willing to sacrifice? Are they willing to murder people themselves? If President Trump becomes a reality, as Sarandon seems to want, will she be willing to destroy the Constitution to save the country?
