Reformers had major momentum, but ultimately failed. Why? Garry hints at the answer in the following quote.
It has been difficult for Americans to imagine how democratic reforms were overthrown and another dictator allowed to take power; why wasn't Putin stopped? However recent domestic events may provide some insight. All of Trump's opponents during the primary attacked him in very strong terms. Trump attacked and belittled them, including humiliation by insulting the looks of their wives. Now that Trump is President, notice all of his former opponents have caved in and now live in Trump's watch pocket. This is an example of how powerful politicians can be emasculated.
Disclaimer: I am not stating Trump is a dictator, merely observing how the countervailing power within the Republican party has evaporated.
