The Donald J. Trump of the United States of America is doing everything within his power to destroy the American democracy before he leaves office on January 20, 2021. He continues to be assisted in this effort by his collection of toadies that he already has in the House and Senate. Yet, because of his insatiable lust for power and corruption, he is seeking still more Republican representatives and senators who will do his bidding. He is collecting these trophy representatives and senators through bullying, intimidation and any other means that he deems necessary. He can smell their fear and sense their lust for power and he ruthlessly uses these things to bring them to their knees: he is a stone cold predator and always conducts himself as such.
There are some among these oath-breaker devoid of principle enablers who do not require bullying or intimidation to cast democracy and the Constitution on the trash heap, they follow him simply because they are Trump loyalist who believe that he can do no wrong. They willingly accept the fact that loyalty to him is a one way street as he views it and always will be. They also believe and willingly accept the statement that he made when he said that “I am the president, I can do anything that I want.” They literally believe that The Donald J. Trump of the United States of America can do anything that he wants to do.
Those who support Mr. Trump and believe that he can do anything that he wants to do does not stop with Republican members of the House and Senate, it extends to more than half of all Republicans. This poses a grave danger to our democracy and a serious threat to the survival of this republic; the American experiment that began almost 250 years ago. Many of those Republicans who are not members of the House or Senate may not know that what Mr. Trump and these incumbent representatives and senators are doing is wrong and goes against everything that America has stood for during those almost 250 years and still stands for today; but these representatives and senators do! I can’t even imagine that they don’t. And if for some unimaginable reason they don’t, then they do not belong in office!
If our elected officials want to be leaders then they must show some leadership. They must defend America against all enemies foreign and domestic and protect and defend the Constitution. Those of them who have chosen to succumb to Mr. Trump – for whatever reason – kiss his ring and do his bidding should never be forgotten! Always remember their names and never trust them again! Hold them accountable, present them as examples and let them and what they have done live in infamy throughout history. That way, those who follow them will realize the gravity of what they did and never repeat it!
