He is a man seemingly without a conscience; for whom the ends always justify the means and it is he who suggests that their target should not be an enemy of the country but rather the country itself. Eventually, his party launches a special project in the name of 'national security'. But if your ultimate goal is power, how best to use such a weapon? Fuelled by the media, fear and panic spread quickly fracturing and dividing the country. Until at last the true goal comes into view.
For the end result, the true genius of the plan was the fear. The rest, as they say, is history. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid. And when they do, things will turn nasty. Fear got the best of you. And I realised we're all part of it, and all trapped by it.
As a nation, we begin by declaring that “all men are created equal.” We now practically read it “all men are created equal, except negroes.” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners and Catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty—to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.
Gandhi & Lincoln were not as perfect, if you judge them by today's standard, as their stories make us believe. However their shortcomings were small and they were centuries ahead of their time. These were compassionate leaders who never distracted or complained to get ahead and dedicated their life to provide equality for those who have nothing. Remember Gandhi who fought for our freedom through non-violence where as Churchill suggested that Gandhi should be “trampled on by an enormous elephant”.
Is Power is everything?
He more than willing to play the villain and courting bad press, for political capital, whenever its required by the caucus. All the damages temporary and survivable. He believes that the systems and institutions is self-correcting and all that really matters is to stay determined on his agenda to get America right of center. But what have they done to solve the everyday issues apart from cheap political stunts to get votes? Currently, Republican party & its elected officials, is all white. Tim Scott is the sole Republican Black politician in U.S Congress. While there are powerful Black Democratic congress men & women in both houses and even 1 Black ex-President.
Republicans playbook aka the Liberty Amendments -- control Supreme court with majority conservative "voices" in order to overturn so-called civil rights laws, abolish all coal & oil regulation, & to change voting rules to indirectly elect state senators instead of by majority vote. The Supreme Court and circuit-courts independence has been undermined after Mitch played dirty. Merrick Garland who has been left out standing even after being nominated by Obama. Under McConnell’s leadership, Republicans insisted on confirming Obama’s nominations individually, drawing out the process enough that, by the summer of 2010, there were 99 vacancies on the federal bench and 40 “judicial emergencies” had been declared by overburdened courts. Democrat Senate majority leader finally decided to get rid of filibusters for lower-court appointees in 2013.
McConnell became majority leader, following elections, judicial nominations all but ground to a halt, with McConnell confirming barely a quarter of Obama’s court picks. After Obama left, the unprecedented number of conservative-approved judicial nominees waved through the Senate stands to shift much of the burden of conservative policymaking away from an increasingly paralyzed Senate. Kavanaugh's is Yale classmate of Rod Rosenstein (r) in FBI. Imagine if they both of them were Dems, you would be calling for heads to roll. In the coming years, battles over voting rights, health care, abortion, regulation and campaign finance, among other areas, are less likely to be decided in Congress than in the nation’s courthouses. 14 of the 18 Supreme court judges in last 50 years are already Republicans (Nixon & Regan got 4 picks each) even though Democrats won 50% of the time, making the radical white conservatism the default.

Republican redistricting expert Thomas Hofeller's analysis to rig elections for next 10 years. FEC filings showed the Republican Party paid him more than $2 million for his work. Hence, rigging U.S elections is completely legal. Without voting rights, its taxation without representation.
Why be the only President in 50 years to hid his tax-return, if you have nothing to hid? Is he afraid that it will show the illegal money trail from Russian banks to Saudi kings? His top advisers Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort ($12 million in undisclosed payments), Rick Gates, Michael Cohen were all convicted and Scott Pruitt, Tom Price, Brock Long, Ryan Zinke were found to be ethically compromised. His biggest business deals were with Russian banks. Donald told Gen Flynn to go to Ukraine so that the sanctions on Russian govt. banks can be removed. Donald tried to veto his own party on Russian sanctions so they had to pass it with super majority (419-3 in the house, and 98-to-2 in the Senate) to make it veto proof. He should also really stop using his old non-secure phone but does he ever listen to anyone? So, China if you are listening find his tax returns. Barr said that it's not a crime. You will be rewarded mightily by the media.
Have I told you how much our lives have improved since our dear leader took over? Why did Donald avoid being interviewed by Mueller if he had nothing to hide? He said out loud that he believes in ex-KGB Putin. Why does Donald always tell his base to only trust him and everyone else is fake news? Here is a leader who is literally holding hate-rallies. He lies without any shame 20:1 (when desperate its 70:1). Donald thinks that free-press just doing their job, is automatically undermining him. He is obsessed with vanity and perceived insults, whining and tweeting excuses at 3 am. Politicians are placed under scrutiny, it comes with the job. If you cannot handle then don't join politics. Pity the nation that raises not its voice, except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero. Dems can only move ahead if a genie appears to grant their wishes. How do Dems manage to bore the public, about a sex story about the President sleeping & paying off Pornstars while his new wife was pregnant?
Obstruction (18 U.S.C. 1505, 1512) in the Mueller Report: Lying to FBI (Title18) & attacking FBI investigator on twitter & tv alone should disqualify him.

Trump’s Proposed Middle Class Tax Cut Is Not Real. Merry Christmas.
GOP Plan Retains Tax Break for Golf-Course Owners:
| || |
The growth under Donald is Not 4% annually. It's 2.9% in 2018 (same as Obama in 2015) and in decline to 1.1 this year, as per Donald's own dept. stats. Remember when Donald laughed at Obama's growth and promised his economy was going to be at least 4% to 5%? This year Donald has changed the growth measure from yearly to a new format of every 4th quaterly and if you measure it in that way then Donald growth is 3% in 2018 but (by the same model, Obama was also 3% in 2015).
The largest growth of middle-class and world-class infrastructure after ww2, was due to govt. assistance. During the war women ran the factories and there was a better ratio of women engineers passing out of universities. Right after the war, more people could afford colleges. Since then it's gotten worse for the 1% of poor who actually send their children to enlist. Donald lied to the troops in Iraq when he said they will receive a 10% raise but they actually got 2.6% raise. He has done nothing for contaminated toxic water in 126 US bases. Under Donald US Army has quietly terminate contracts for immigrants.after promising citizenship to those who served. Commander-bone-spurs pretended a disability to avoid serving during war-time and used that to send someone else's son had to go in his place. Vets haven't received G.I allowance.
Without the working people who will run into burning buildings, who will clean and cook, who will serve wearing the uniform? Its important to remember the role of those blue collar workers, technicians and machinists played to take us to the moon. How come there is always resistant to use taxpayer money on teachers raise, healthcare, small business, veterans, school kids but there is always billions to piss away? Just 3 people in US have more wealth than 63 million American families. Their tax deductions on home mortgages will expire after 2025. When there is more money in middle-class consumers pockets, the better the market grows.
What has he done but start tariff wars that is only helps his greedy donors in the stock-market? Instead, higher tariffs = higher tax for the public. Donald has appointed ex lobbyist in interior, drug lobbyist incharge of health, energy lobbyist incharge of environment, big bank executives incharge of finance & advisors in treasury, defense executive in charge of defense. Why is it even legal to lobby lawmakers? His 5-year government officials ban applies only to lobbying in their former agency and not becoming a lobbyist. He is not draining the swamp. It was never this bad under Obama.
Nowonder, Republicans don't support the minium wage bill. The minimum wage of $7.25 per hour is nearly 40% lower than in the 1970s, adjusted for inflation. Minimum wage jobs like in restaurants, get paid by their employeers in all other countries from the World except the U.S. Tipping, as way to make a living, is only found in U.S. In the U.S it is Not the restaurant employeers responsibility to pay wages for service, so, in U.S customers have to tip. Currently, employeers can actually pay their staff just a min of $2 and 13 cents as wages. Tipping was started in U.S during the 1920s (18th Amendment) when the Italian Mafia controlled the black market. Within the two decades restaurant employeers began to only hire poor Black freed former slaves, only if they did not have to actually pay them wages. So customers tipping was created for the freed slaves to work like before but now they had to buy their own uniforms too. Also the difference between a customer's tip for a good service & and bad one is just 1%. Do you want serfs?
In 1965 the Hart-Celler Act was passed, suddenly whole groups of Mexico and Latin America people who were already been living in US and whose entrance to the US was considered legal before suddenly became illegal. Currently, immigrants made up just 17% of the U.S. workforce. The Bracero program, instituted in a bilateral agreement in 1942 amid anticipation of a labor shortage in ww-2, gave contracts to Mexican workers to be employed in the U.S. agricultural sector. Many of the farm workers are reported to receive a fraction of the wages of American laborers. Lee G. Williams, the last director of the program under the Department of Labor, refers to the system as "legalized slavery."Amid mounting pressure from activists, the U.S. government lets its Mexican guest worker program expire after 22 years. The end of the Bracero program results in an acceleration of illegal immigration across the border.
Millions flow to fast-growing lobbying firms with ties to the Trump administrationhttps://www.opensecrets.org/trump/lobbyists
You cannot reduce defense funds simply because readiness, training and maintenance are the first things that go out as this is seen as the easiest to cut. None of the wars started by neocon hawks (practically all lost) since WW2 have been legal since has not been approved by the congress, as required by the Constitution. If it was possible to kill your way to victory than U.S would have succeeded in Vietnam, Korea & Afghanistan. The taliban are back in power in 75% of rural Afghanistan. Donald is clearly Not competent. In 2 years fired 4 National security adviser. There is No National intel chief. Also No Homeland security adviser. The largest number of vacancy in history of US ambassadors.
Donald-Kim summit failed. North Korea tested perfectly their nukes, are building bombs & fired their new longest-range missiles under Donald. Donald wanted a Nobel prize for picking up the check for the 2 meetings. The photo-ops with Kim were All Hat & No Cattle but Donald declared in his tweet that he already solved everything last year. Failed Yemen & Niger raids. Never imagined the day Russia will be in Venezuela in the backyard without any push back. If Obama was President, Republicans would be chest-thumping that Russians should never be given an inch inside America's backyard. Kim and Putin are laughing now. (https://time.com/5565120/russias-presence-in-venezuela/)
Trade war with everyone by Donald has already harmed farmers for decades to come. Give handout subsidies to farmers is also Socialism. When you starts picking winners & losers instead of trusting the markets to self-correct; everyone end ups with losing and they effects are never what you intended. Big new agencies like a new Space Force & ICE instead of raising federal workers pay (President refused to raise their pay on labour day). Systemic inequality is when one group of people, gets more advantages than everyone else, just because they have more money. Nationalist will always find someone to blame for their weakness and incompetence.
GOP's budget had deep cuts of aids for low-income & first-gen college students. The budget eliminated the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant program, a 50-year-old program which goes to more than a million poor college kids each year. The budget also reduce Federal Work Study program that helps to ensure that college students who are truly in need of the money get the jobs. Meanwhile, they have cut funds to AmeriCorps, Senior community service employment programs, AIDs programs & Americans with Disabilities (ADA). Donald has now rolled back Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Protection for Endangered Species, and Protection of Federal Lands.
Its Republican politicians wet dream to cut SS, Medicare & CDC for an income-tax rate that helps donors so that donors get bigger write-offs & permanent tax-breaks. What has he done but start tariff wars that is only helps his greedy donors in the stock-market? Stocks doesn’t matter when only 20% own stocks. For all the talk about unemployment being falling to 4%, understand that it fell from 10% to 5% under Obama. He saved the auto industry jobs but he wasn't perfect. Job loss was the highest under Bush Jr. and Reagan. Profits have skyrocketed since 1980s but medium household wages have hardly increased (vs 400% increase for CEOs) which means families are working harder by getting less because companies are using their yearly tax-breaks to buy back more stocks.
Taxpayers have paid the highest bill for this US President's vacation than any in history. The net effect is that the taxpayers money has turned into his personal money. He works 3 hours per day and has spent 1 out of every 5 days as President in his resort. Do we know how much it tax dollars were spent to fund those vacations to Europe for Donald's sons, daughters, wives & party? Donald's paycheck to charity is peanuts compared to how much tax money, one of his children & wives, uses every month. Donald has spent 1 out of every 5 days as President in his resort. $500,000 tax dollars per day for security for NY tower alone has to be paid to him. (https://trumpgolfcount.com/displayoutings)
"This is about the Republican Party going — this is our last chance to save the party. And if we don’t, it’s the end of the Republican Party. And the only way they can do that was to tap the race button and say, ‘Go ahead, it’s OK.’ That was the only card they had left to play and they played it, and they aren’t going to go quietly."

Might is right or Survival of the Fittest?
“I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times … and I don’t mind apologizing over and over again. I can’t erase what happened” - Byrd said.
Emancipation ended slavery in deep south but not its deep race legacy. Southern state Democrats had made the Black Codes and the JIM Crow Laws (1887-1960s), in addition to state-sanctioned black convict leasing using the 13th Amendment itself which abolished slavery! U.S Senate was “the South’s unending revenge upon the North for Gettysburg.”
Depression-era economy also loosened African-American ties to the Republican Party. Nationally, Black workers were already in the grips of an economic depression before the stock market collapsed in 1929. Local patronage positions and nationally administered emergency relief programs in Depression-era Chicago and other cities, for instance, proved crucial in attracting African-American support.
There were systematic segregation that guaranteeing mortgages, insurance, loans to only white applicant and good educational institutions are funded, to this day, by areas which have higher property value. However, Roosevelt’s domestic programs gave Democrats a black constituency for the first time in history, as an attempt to win votes in Northern industrial cities, where blacks were migrating in large numbers.
By 1936, only 28% of African Americans nationally voted for Republican. The Republican Party neglected & abandoned the Black vote; as The "New Deal" Democratic Party began to change. Republican leaders cashing in on white anger and their refusal by to pursue civil rights alienated many black voters.
African-American politicians in the early 1930s switched parties to advance their own careers while simultaneously helping their black communities. Unlike earlier older black members who relied on the established political machines to launch their careers, these members, most of whom had grown up in the cities they represented, managed to forge political bases separate from their party structure.
Hubert Humphrey basically split the Democratic party in two half with his 1948 DNC speech. President Kennedy’s civil rights bill was taken up by President Johnson (and the Montana Democrat, Mike Mansfield) who made it top priority to push the bill through Congress (two-thirds of Senate dems backed it) during the first year of his administration. Influential (Dixiecrats) Southern Democratic senators like Richard Russell, Strom Thurmond soon switch to the Republican Party.
Republican senator Goldwater, who voted against the Civil Rights Act. Texas businessmen finances mixed with religious zealots and populist politicians and deep white racial resentments forced conservatives to completely change the Republican party into Alt Right. Texas didn't change but the two Parties switched sides. That's how they got the white votes and lost the black votes. Its called the Southern strategy.
Hoover had tried to ingratiate himself with angry southern segregationists but Goldwater & Nixon would succeed where Hoover failed. Texas turned from solid Dems state to diehard Republican state between 60s-70s and dominated its politics till now due to Nixon's 'Southern strategy' on Vietnam, taxes, anti-communism, school prayer & abortion has its roots in John Birch Society. Standardized tests in were used to relegate certain students to worse schools and zoning school districts in order to disenfranchise lower-income communities.
You don't fear racism, when you don't have to fear the effects of racism. Republicans won the Southern states and the white support collapsed for the Democratic Party.
Vote on HR. 7152. the Civil Rights Act of 1964:
Fox News reporter asked if he was worried that "many people saw that tweet as racist and that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point?" He responded, "It doesn’t concern me because many people agree with me."
Do you know about the history of United Fruit Co., Monroe Doctrine and later the “El Salvador Solution”?
“What is an American, this new man? Here individuals of all races are melted into a new race of man, whose labors and posterity will one day cause great changes in the world.”
Here is the list of the World's happiest countries:
Just 2 cents every $ on ultra-wealthy (those who make 50 million but don't pay any tax due to tax-breaks) can pay for every children health & food & pay off all college loans. And keep $1 Trillion extra in the bank. ~ Elizabeth Warren
Jack Owoc, CEO of Vital Pharmaceuticals, donated millions to pro-Donald super PAC.
Remember those lies to replace ACA with "something terrific". Obama was the only one in 100 years to do anything for anyone with pre-existing conditions, and for people that help earn less than $40K and help people in their 50s and early 60s who were being charged 5 times more than young people.
GOP promised but did not keep in their tax plan: child care & elder care as tax-deductions, tax-free dependent care savings accounts for low-income families, on-site child-care services by employers. Since, the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act was gutted 54 times, however, Republicans still have no comprehensive healthcare plan of their own. Nothing has been done to reduce the decades of high death of infants & young children in US, the richest nation, due to poor healthcare. Republican tax deductions on medical expense will revert to 10% by 2020.
Suicide has become the number one violent cause of death in U.S. Is this how you make America great? Canada has healthcare and no wall. Donald approved 6 Billion which can be used ONLY to stop illicit drugs by law officers but DID NOT transfer any money to help treat the opioid crisis. The Public Health & Social Services Emergency Fund, not to be confused with the Public Health Emergency Fund. The fund to treat the opioid crisis has only just $57,000. Every nation has figured their healthcare system out-
1. Tax-funded (Britain Spain) -
2. Employment funded (Germany France Tokyo) -
3. National health insurance combines tax & employment funds (Canada) -
4. Private insurance (USA) -
5. Out-of-pocket with no govt. funding -
Unlike conservatives, Nationalist get a hard-on demonizing and pointing at everyone for their problems but themselves. A southern wall will costs 25 Billion can be used for vets and homeless. Keep on dreaming about a wall made of cream and butterflies to solve all your problems. The vast nos. of illegals FLY in & never leave. Its just unAmerican to use billions of tax-payer dollars to hid behind useless Wall when that money can be better used. Donald to fund the Wall is siphoning off 4 billion from money given by Congress for school & childcare for military service members; and from coast guard budget; FEMA & Ryan AIDs program. This Corruption pain & simple. Remember, when they said they could easily get Mexico to pay for $8 Billion to fund building a wall? When Gop controlled congress, they did pass tax-cuts but didn't give 1 cent to fund to build the wall. If Republicans passed the Wall Act with simple majority of 50 votes, that would allow $25 billion budget through Reconciliatory & Byrd Rule’s. All this political anarchy makes US look weak.
In the early 1920s, immigrants overwhelm major port cities, including NY, Boston, Philadelphia and Charleston. Irish Catholic immigration was opposed in the 1850s by the "Know Nothing" movement, America’s first anti-immigrant political party, originating in New York in 1843. The Know-Nothings won many elections, but Lincoln declined to join them coz its harmful to support discrimination to spread fear of 'other' within the nation. Now Saint Patrick's day holiday is celebrated in America in recognition of Irish and Irish immigrants cultural tradition and religious culture in US. Did you know Steve Jobs was the biological son of a Syrian immigrant or EBay founder Pierre Omidyar parents are Iranian?
What is use of simply reciting Prayers if you don't follow Jesus? You get a conman who left his pregnant wives to rawdogged Pornstars. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StQx1s9IcFU) Powerful old men can pay $79 per hr for sex from low-income girls. Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Cosby live across the same street; & Donald Trump and Bill Clinton were very close friends with both of them. You cannot trust any man to be loyal when broke his wedding vows thrice and shows no sign of changing. Did or did Donald's First Wife not mention marital rape & domestic violence by Donald in her divorce file in a deposition? She later settled in 1991 and changed her story that it was her lawyers who suggested blah blah.
We must remember the reasons for actions in all things. ICE’s original job was to track international criminals & homegrown terrorists in response to 9/11 but slowly it has become America’s Gestapo with nationwide hunting of undocumented workers. The rise in deportations was partly the product of Congress continuing to give ever-more money to ICE, while ICE expanded programs that deputized local police in enforcing federal immigration law — bringing the threat of deportation for any unauthorized immigrant who might go to local law enforcement as a victim or witness. Did you know total prison population is 2.2 million and has an incarceration rate higher than any other nation on earth? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYPumEXmKd4)
Trump pardons disgraced media mogul Conrad Black who was convicted of fraud.
Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was the first major attempt at immigration restriction in American history. The Rock Springs Massacre was just one episode of anti-Chinese violence in the years immediately following the passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. In September of 1885, a mob of about 150 white men, armed with rifles, descended upon the Chinatown in Rock Springs, Wyo. They issued an ultimatum to The ultimatum was a formality: the mob had surrounded the neighborhood to make sure there was no easy way to escape, and they didn't even wait the full hour. The mob rushed in, shooting wildly. Some, who took no part either in beating or robbing the Chinese, stood by, shouting loudly and laughing and clapping their hands. Like the Exclusion Act, the Plessy decision in 1896 would go on to make white supremacy a matter of settled law. There were other incidents of racial terror towards Chinese in America in the years leading up to the law's passage, including a mass lynching in Los Angeles.

Statue of Libtard says: Lord in your name we support an unrepentant adulterer who puts little children and mothers in separate cages with no water, soap or blankets. They have committed the sin of fleeing druglords & coming to our borders looking for safety so we can f them up. Amen
Currently, there are proportionally fewer immigrants today than in 1890. Long-term temporary workers & permanent resident workers (who are not green card holders) are already not allowed any social service or benefits for atleast 5 years even Before the new law and their taxes are deducted like everyone. (https://www.wypr.org/post/us-born-children-undocumented-immigrants-increasingly-denied-snap-benefits). Even for people who are working for 5 years with papers, Donald "public charge" rules to programs like TANF & SNAP has prevented all LAWFUL immigrant workers from receiving new permanent residence status. (https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/09/20/how-does-trump-even-sleep-night-cuts-cancer-research-head-start-and-womens-shelters)
So leave people who are poor and desperate alone, if you cannot provide more immigration judges or a soap etc. Donald separated more than 50,000 nos. of 3-4 year olds & another 53,000 nos. of 5 -9 year olds. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Separating families from toddlers is cruelty by Godless people. Can you imagine the poor families walking 2000 miles to run from these gangs carrying machete? If there was a chance to save your children from drug gangs, even if it meant a life without you, when things got so desperate; what would you do? The child separation camps have been funded by reallocating money from the tornado recovery programs & Ryan White AIDs program.
What happened to the investigation into 3 million voters? Zilch. As long as there are oceans and people being born in poor South american nation, there will be people coming to America. They have more right to come then Caucasians from Europe. The world biggest refugee (due to wars in middle east) intake has been into the poorest African & west Asian nations. E.U. (except Germany & turkey) has taken together in 1% of refugees. America is far below at 50,000 cut off (but even half of the cap has not been met every year).
"In a county that is 89% white and less than 2% Hispanic, they spoke of undocumented immigrants bankrupting Sun Belt hospitals, dragging down wages and burdening taxpayers."

Anyone who thinks that white people are greater than others, is a racist. Donald's father was caught by cops in kkk rally. Did you know that the vast majority of confederate statues (all funded by tax dollars) are not from the time of Civil War and were just built between 1890 and 1920 by white ladies who also published "The KKK Invisible Empire"? Its totally a false choice between straw men propaganda vs economic/physical safety. Those who think they can escape because they are naturalized or native-born, going back generations, are simply fooling themselves.
Did you know in 1885, at the age of 16 and facing mandatory military service, his grandfather Friedrich fled Germany without his mother & illegally entered the US? Friedrich moved in with an older sister, Katherine, and her husband in New York, both of whom had illegally immigrated earlier. And If anyone like his grandfather LIES on record in order to become a US citizen, that is illegal too, nomatter if its 1892 or 1992. (https://www.amazon.com/Trumps-Generations-Builders-Presidential-Candidate-ebook/dp/B015WNZ1IK)
The President public comments do have an Impact. You cannot trust someone who said he kept mein kampf on his bedside. Even when Donald had no power he refused to accept election results "if he lost". Why do Republicans always plead innocent in court while claiming they are not responsible spreading lies and blaming it on "psychosis"? Did you know US Army Barbara Vieyra & Gonzalez Carranza died fighting the good fight in Afghanistan & then ICE deported their husbands, and left their kids parentless? None in trumps family line has ever fought for country.
Feel like a big man who is afraid of 4 young woman? Are you not bigoted if you spend the day by bulling one of the only two Muslim women ever to be elected into Congress? Show some class. And Republicans talk about character. OBL said modern western liberalism (like antislavery, free press & judges) will be quickly abandoned by society, as its incompatible with a holy book because they believe Democracy is devil's work. Don't emulate terrorist supremacist values. Never imagined the day when we would see racist baiting President. (https://www.dhs.gov/victims-immigration-crime-engagement)
Today's most ardent advocates of "America First" share one surprising trait: Very few of them were born in the United States. Dinesh D'Souza was born in India, and Johnson in Britain - where he still lives. Mark Steyn, and Michael Ignatieff all hail from Canada. Charles Krauthammer was born in Uruguay, but grew up in Montreal before moving to the US. If you truely respect the stars and strips then you should also respect 'secular' institutions. Good politicians built people up and strengthen 'democratic' institutions in the republic. Bad ones quickly burn everything down. USA use to be known as only nation to welcome everyone who had nowhere to go, looking for a 2nd chance, that shiny star upon a hill. No nation is infallible. Its possible to show love for the people of the a country & dislike the current government? It happens all the time. Roosevelt was talking the about Italian-Americans & German-Americans not being as loyal like other Americans:
“If some citizens band together as German-Americans or Irish-Americans, then after a while others are certain to band together as English-Americans or Scandinavian-Americans, and every such banding together, every attempt to make for political purposes a German-American alliance or a Scandinavian-American alliance, means down at the bottom an effort against the interest of straight-out American citizenship, an effort to bring into our nation the bitter Old World rivalries and jealousies and hatreds.” “I appeal to all our citizens, no matter from what land their forefathers came, to keep this ever in mind, and to shun with scorn and contempt the sinister intriguers and mischief-makers who would seek to divide them along lines of creed, or birthplace or of national origin.”

The final exercise involves considering how nightmarish 2028 might become if NATO continues on the same failed trajectory of 2008—with a good number of post-Soviet states falling back into a “Soviet Union Lite,” with Europe re-dividing and aching to settle old border disputes, and with the Black Sea becoming a launch pad for never-ending Russian adventures into the Middle East, Central Asia, and the Eastern Mediterranean.
Cicero of the Roman empire wrote this in 43 B.C:
1. The poor - work & work.
2. The rich - exploit the poor.
3. The soldier - protects both.
4. The taxpayer - pays for all three.
5. The banker - robs all four.
6. The lawyer - misleads all five.
7. The doctor - bills all six.
8. The goons - scare all of seven.
9. The Politician - lives happily on account of all 8.
"he will lie, sir, with
such volubility, that you would think truth were a

harm, save to his bed-clothes about him; but they
know his conditions and lay him in straw. I have but
little more to say, sir, of his honesty: he has
every thing that an honest man should not have; what
an honest man should have, he has nothing."
