Recent polling reveals that the GOP base supports Trump no mater what he says or does. So much so that cartoonists have illustrated Trump (per his election campaign rhetoric) shooting Uncle Sam on Broadway and no one with the authority to act seems willing to do so. And in the interim, our democracy remains susceptible to interference by foreign entities. Similar to Trump's claim that North Korea is no longer a threat, he wants us to believe that Obama and Hillary (and Liberals) are more a threat to our democracy than foreign agents and their sinister handlers (or GOP sycophants). So to just blame Trump is missing the bigger picture. The GOP and its supporters no longer care to protect a democracy that includes opposing ideas. Instead, authoritarianism appears to be preferred by the Right, as long as it only includes their demands and ideology. Hardly what the Founding Fathers and Framers had in mind when seeking to create a "More Perfect Union."
The solution is obvious. Seize control of Congress by electing Democrats, not because of their liberal ideology, but because they remain willing to ensure and safeguard our great nation from the slowly eroding corrosiveness the GOP has been engaged in since Ronald Reagan's presidency. Liberals are just as American as anyone else - and in this modern era, perhaps more patriotic than those that cast democracy to the curb in an endless thirst to control our government and culture.
Voting is not a revolutionary idea. Adhering to an ideology to suppress voting rights though embodied by the GOP in all of the states they control is just short of revolutionary - but it certainly is not an American ideal. Unfortunately, it appears the GOP, Trump and his supporters are leading the way to divide America, which is what a foreign government could never accomplish on its own. Midterms can't come fast enough, so please VOTE to right America''s course which has been diverted by the GOP. As President James Madison once wrote; "If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." Try to have a great week!
