Bird's eye view of the fight

From Matt Stoller at MY DD

"The real story arc of the Republican Party is simple. The Republicans are trying to institutionalize absolute power for themselves by turning the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the CIA, and the Defense Department into enforcement arms for the GOP. Key to this is seizing the election machinery through a mix of intimidation, gerrymandering, and overt politicization of the Justice Department. They wanted a dictatorship, hence all that 'decider' talk. And the Democratic Party, fresh with new and aggressive members more in touch with the public, aren't going to lay down for this anymore.
