In case you hadn’t noticed, American democracy is essentially already gone.
It has been hijacked. By 1/3 of the country determined to rule over the entire populace
……by a repressive, regressive, fascistic, gang of religious cultists and gun-wielding social misfits
……sponsored by the greediest level of society, the 5% who control this gang with lies, fake promises, and manufactured “socialist” villains for their own gain
……championed by the most unscrupulous, devious, power-mad public “servant” outside the world of fiction, a true-to-life Sheriff of Nottingham. Mitch McConnell is evil incarnate, the most unscrupulous politician I can remember.
The takeover has been empowered by
…..a Democratic party that hides its cowardice behind “respect for rule of law” and a “commitment to the high ground” that can best be described as “Please don’t hurt us.”
…..Gutless Democratic Presidents. Yes, this means Joe Biden
……and a 2/3 of the country too blase, ambivalent, and yes, scared, to deal with thugery in the only way that thugs understand, with equal toughness.
Our Democracy is virtually gone as of right now, because the thugs on the right are strong, and we high-minded, principled on the left are weak. We are all mouth, and little action. Our high mindedness is our security blanket.
Yours truly included.
We are a principled but weak, hapless bunch of villagers. We don’t need more principled but weak legislators.
We need the Magnificent Seven.
