The end game

According to the leader of the Republican Party in Arizona the time has come to “Cross the Rubicon.” When I heard that remark I had to look it up.
It is a reference to Julius Caesar who was told not to cross the Rubicon River while he was serving in the military. He did anyway, which led to a five year Roman civil war and eventually the declaration of Caesar as Dictator for Life. The end of their democracy, the end of their republic, and the beginning of their empire.
