This is terrific, Peter! I can’t wait to study it having just read The Atlantic profile of Mitt.

The article documents the sacrifice of principle of the Red party. Mitch, Graham, Cruz, et al. Those f***ers made a deal with a fool that they knew was a fool and spoke of him in those terms.

Furtherance of this foolishness and our democracy will have one of the shorter time spans on this map.

There are people who absurdly insist the decline stage is the ideal. Al these goofy fascists dream of a king. So It's interesting that Romney has a more sophisticated view.

As a former bishop and stake president in the LDS church, either Romney believes his own religion or he believes this wall chart. They are not compatible.

Fascinating map - I had not seen it yet. Romney may not be the best human, but I feel like he's the last of a dying breed, of conservatives with values. I'm not suggesting he's a hero, but I am suggesting that the "we care about values" ship has sailed.

Is it not the height of irony a movement ostensibly to make America great again could be our downfall?
