Hoping there isn't a nasty chain of treaties that will begin a protracted multifaceted ground war in eastern Europe...
"But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist."
--Lysander Spooner

I reject your authoritah!

Let's just be glad the person targeted wasn't an arch duke . . .
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.
