“People speak sometimes about the bestial cruelty of man, but that is terribly and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artistically cruel,” Fyodor Dostoevsky.
Unless it is 45 and all those associated with his fascist ideologies. All that could spell dooms day for American democracy. And hello to governance tailored after, Russian Vladimir Putin and Chinese Xi Jinping.
The civilized world considers such governance as artistically cruel. Artistically cruel, because its a charade for the hiding of their oppressive cruelty. Which is unmerciful inflicted upon all, who challenge their tyrannical governance.
Which seems to have a lot of appeal to 45. With his constant railings about draining the swamp. Largely focused upon career governmental employees. Who faithfully advise Presidents irrespective of party affiliation. Which includes eradicating the free press, a necessary hall mark for a sustainable democracy. Along with making the Congress and the Federal courts subservient to 45. Just like in Russia and China.
Would there be enough courage within our within our 50 states and territories to fight 45 to save American democracy?
45′ ambitions are clearly announced. There will be no peaceful transfer of power if 45 is denied a second term. 45 employs distasteful attacks declaring that the only he could loose would be through a rigged election. 45 is in urgent need of psychiatric care. Because, there is nothing normal about 45′ demeanor.
One suspects 45 envies Putin’s way of dealing with those who disagree with him. Poison them! Or Xi Jinping’s reindoctrination prisons, for those, he considers to be a threat, to his being the sole voice for Chinese governess. Including Saudi Arabia way of dealing with critics. Butcher them in an Embassy and then cry foul play!
What’s equaling shocking is how Republican office holders at every level of American governance faithfully support 45. Much could be said about such rational, but it’s rather useless because its self evident. Republicans have a streak of fascist ideologies within themselves. So they may wish 45 would tone down his insulting rhetoric. They’ll live with it because its 45′ fascist ideologies that they support.
So it should also be self evident that, 03 November 2020, is about saving American democracy. With its present entitlements of social security, medicare, medicaid, the affordable care act and unemployment insurance and much more. High on the agenda, if Democrats retake the senate will be livable wages, employment security, housing and more.
Get out the vote for Biden/ Harris, and where you live, democratic candidates. This writer is a credentialed political scientists. American freedom is at risk of becoming a footnote of history.
American democracy over the centuries has rid itself of its faults by extending democracy to those disenfranchised. Another cleansing step is on the horizon. Through the Black Lives Matter movement. A second term for 45 will make that journey far more difficult, and maybe impossible.
In Florida, where I live, we the voters passed a constitutional amendment granting full citizenship to convicted felons, who have completed their sentences.
Florida’s republican governor and republican controlled legislature has fought to deny former felons full citizenship. Why? Because they fear they’ll register to vote as democrats. There has been successful push back against the governor and the legislature. But the republicans, are still at it, by adding into law ways to deny former felons full citizenship.
It’s difficult for this writer to understand how anyone, who values American democracy can be a Republican. Their rational which this writer has studied causes this conclusions. They are adherents to democracy in word only. The old adage rings true, “Actions speak louder than words.”
