I know, right?
Well hopefully in January 2021 the tyranny will be over - and the overthrow will be peaceful in the form of a new democratically (small d - or large, what do I care?) elected president.
In the mean time, while we must deal with a tyrant, thank God for the system of checks and balances that are in place. They make a difference in keeping a tyrant in check.
Thus, we truly aren't helpless in the face of tyranny.
