Here you hit on the core of the nonsense that you hear from the Cult all the time. Their "solution" is essentially to move toward one-party rule. They really, truly believe that this will be in their best interests. It's like none of them have ever picked up a history book.

Pot meet kettle. Anyone who thinks that half of the people in the US are "enemies" has major issues.

It's very disturbing and a clear indication of a lack of education on their part.

52% of Republicans believe Trump should have the ability to suspend elections if he so chooses.

That's about as close as we have ever come to a sizable fraction of our populace supporting a dictatorship. Most dictators have outsized cults of personality like Trump's also.

Umm.... where does the oath taken by Rosenstein etc., say that? Especially the part you bolded?

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/5/3331

The oath taken by military officers does have that phrase about obeying the orders of the President. It must, since the Prez is the Commander in Chief of the armed forces.

But the oath taken by civilian officials of the Fed govt, doesn't have that phrase to my knowledge. Can you supply a reference that shows their oath contains such a phrase? Officials such as the Deputy AG etc.?

That said, it probably should. But does it?

The AG and his Deputy are part of the executive branch, and the Prez is the head of the executive branch. So they actually do work for Donald Trump.

If I were the head of a department or branch, and found out that employees in the dept were deliberately trying to thwart the legitimate actions I wanted the dept to do, disobeying orders, loafing on the job etc., I'd fire them for cause, in about as long as it took me to sign the notice.
