I found something to agree with you on: “America is not an occupied nation.” Finally some sanity! That is why the Resistance is failing: there’s nothing to resist: Democracy works and gave us a Republican victory. The Democrats can win back power only if they reform themselves into a believable opposition; In the meantime, whining about the “Resistance” is just pitiful: They lost an election, not a war. They need to develop an alternative vision for the future that is more inspiring than poverty-inducing Climate Change action, and a bureaucracy of political correctness telling us what to think.
That is what Trump did with “Making America Great Again!”
