    at what people are willing to tolerate.  Thomas Jefferson says it himself in the Declaration of Independence:

    "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."

    I'm not advocating full scale rebellion but if the GOP tried to thwart the will of the people by preventing the Democrats to take charge, I can't think of anything short of a full scale rebellion that would get them to back off.  Can you?
