I am so ashamed of my country.  President Trump is taking us into a realm that our Founding Fathers hoped to avoid.

Trump does not believe in democracy. He wants to be a “supreme leader.”

He has alienated our democratic allies, England and Germany.  He totally threw the Kurds to the wolves.  And now we are pimping out our dedicated military to despotic countries like Saudi Arabia.

Members of the Republican party who continue to support this out of control, egomaniac disgust me.

Looks like you drank the kool-aid Sandra. Have you seen what the Dems are doing to our beautiful state?? The Dumocrate party is exactly what our founding fathers were hoping to avoid. Read your history book honey, you remember the ones that actually taught American history, not the revised version they ate teaching today.


“Never in the history of this country have we had such gross unfairness that one party would put armed guards with guns to prevent the duly authorized people from being able to hear the witnesses and see them for themselves...That’s not the kind of evidence that a coup should be based on. If we’re going to have what they’re trying to legalize as a coup, we ought to have a right to see each of those witnesses. It’s about to push this country to a civil war if they were to get their wishes,” Gohmert opined. “And if there’s one thing I don’t want to see in my lifetime, I don’t want to ever have participation in, it’s a civil war. Some historian, I don’t remember who, said, guns are only involved in the last phase of a civil war.”

Every president has said "our system is broken", and go on to point to poor education, health care, (etc), but those problems are just symptoms. This what is broken in our government: 1) the electoral college, 2) first past the post (aka, plurality) voting, and 3) the Senate. All other issues pale in comparison. Please do some research on these topics, and see why we are listed as a "flawed democracy" under the Democracy Index.
