Democracy Fail

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Brace Yourself. The Trump Era is about to begin. Crony Capitalism with a Soviet twist.

Built on lies, fostered by fear mongering talking heads and supported by the Mafia Godfather of Russia, this moment in our history will be known as The Great Leap Backwards.

Facts, Science and Truth are now passé. Lies, Fake News and Conspiracy Theories are now in vogue. Democrats, Liberals and US Intelligence Agencies are sore losers not to be trusted while Putin, Russia and Breitbart News are factual honest brokers...

With a President hand picked by Vladimir Putin, a Secretary of State awarded a medal by Vladimir Putin, a National Security Advisor approved by Russia and Chief Strategist chosen by the Alt Right, an EPA Chief picked by Big Oil, the Wall Street Securities and Exchange Commission Chief picked by Goldman Sachs and even a pro-wrestling Trump donor to head the Small Business Association - our economic stability and national security is in dire jeopardy.

And with not a single "believer" in Human Caused Climate Change either part of Trump's cabinet or in his Republican Party, the results of Trump's Presidency will be shocking and could well be catastrophic.

Expect to see Trump trying to control the media and silence free speech while attempting to stomp out scandal after scandal with lie after lie supported by the Putin propaganda machine and their Far Right media surrogates in the USA.

Witness as the unholy fusion of Capitalist Greed with Russian Mafia Evil gives birth to Global Plutocracy.

Watch as International Robber Barons and Oligarchs enrich themselves at taxer payer expense through their contacts with tax dodging Trump and his family, even as wars of distraction and profit are fought and our planet quietly dies....

Understand this. On January 20th we will no longer have ANY checks and balances of our Government. The House, the Senate, the White House and Supreme Court - the entire apparatus of our Government will Republican controlled, led by Commander in Tweet Donald Trump - all under the influence of Putin.

Trump will be in sole possession of the ability to launch nuclear weapons. He alone can fire off our entire nuclear arsenal anytime he chooses to and no one can stop him. There is no second confirmation required. This is fact.
Consider that for a moment.

The ideals, values and freedoms our country was founded upon and that so many have given their lives to protect are in danger of being lost. Fake News has twisted truth into a very bad reality TV show hosted by Mr Trump playing himself as President - on Fox News of course, which will end dramatically as every apocalyptic reality TV show always does, with the demise of the USA and the entire planet.

The Republican Party has utterly failed our country putting loyalty to their party above their responsibility to the American People. Remember that as this tragedy unfolds before your eyes.

I don't know about you, but I'm not going stand by quietly and let this happen.
