It's the end of the Constitutional concept of separation of powers for sure. To deny congress the power of oversight is to act in complete contravention of the Constitution's core principles.

Democracy will probably continue to exist in one form or another, and for white Americans who have job security, things might seem almost..."normal." It's just that people will be suspicious of election results and doubt the legitimacy of the government, which isn't a problem for a party that seeks power for the sake of having it, but more problematic for political parties that seek legitimacy and consent to govern.
