Countdown

With the election a few months away, those citizens who would not be comfortable with a fascist takeover of our country might want to take time out to make a things-to-do list.

The very first thing to do is to recognize the threats of all the anti-democratic people and ideas that are flying around like NFL linebackers. They are real.

The list might include supporting Republican Party officials who stand for democratic ideals, if there are any left.

We can also rally around non-partisan, independent public servants who still believe in the rule of law and are willing to defend our democratic institutions.

Pro-democracy and anti-violence coalitions may have to spring up around the country to protect first targets.

The American authoritarian phenomenon is now eight years old, at least, and it needs to be taken seriously and literally.

I don’t know about you, but I am not ready to “terminate” the Constitution, allow “retribution” against political opponents and to encourage anybody to be “dictator for a day.”

The dynamics of an authoritarian takeover are going to have to be altered in this country in order to preserve and protect this country.

There are still a lot of people who are a little too comfortable supporting a degenerate buffoon who has 91 felony counts on his head.

Let us make them very uncomfortable.

Payback

The Social Security Amendments of 1983 (Public Law 98-21, April 20, 1983) reinstated the previously expired interfund borrowing authority and extended it through 1987. Ronald Reagan started borrowing against Social Security in the ’80s. All following presidents have done this as well.

If you want to save Social Security, have Congress pay back what it has taken.

  1. How is it that Donald Trump is a “fascist,” as this fascist lost court case after court case and numerous congressional battles during his four year reign — and we never became fascist??
