A great democracy must be progressive or it will soon cease to be a great democracy.

Capitol Hill Washington DC

Anybody who ever chanted “Lock Her Up” ought to be seriously ashamed. This obsession with Hilary Clinton, who lost, is completely absurd, when Donald Trump may be the single most corrupt President in modern history.

 

Twelve days before the election, Trump clearly, illegally bought the silence of a prostitute and a playboy bunny who could have damaged his chances for victory. During the campaign, he brazenly asked the Russian Government to hack the email servers of his opponent, which it did, while his operatives diligently worked behind the scenes to make it happen. Once in office, he fired his FBI Director who refused to shut down the investigation into Russian election meddling, in which it’s becoming more and more clear he played a significant part.

 

In just two years, five members of his campaign team have been convicted or plead guilty to criminal charges. Another six resigned or were forced to resign over a variety of ethics violations and another five are still in office despite abusing tax payer funds, refusing to divest from conflicts of interest and violating the Hatch Act that bars government employees from participating in government funded political activity.

 

Donald Trump and the Republican party are institutionalizing corruption at the highest levels of government. They are demonizing the free press and attempting to rig our elections through voter suppression, big money and gerrymandering. These are the tactics of fascist dictators.

 

Any other President would have already been removed from office, but Trump survives because of cowardly, corrupt Republicans like Mitch Mcconnell and Lindsey Grahm that control our congress. Perhaps, the only saving grace is that Mike Pence is not President.

" government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system. "

Self-congratulatory despotism Persian style: King Philip II of Macedon, 4th century BC. Being tired of democracy is nothing new. Craving for the populist "Leader" who is expected to get things done or go for glory has happened before. It happened in the 20th century.
