“Be Bold America!”
Yogi Berra once said, “You can observe a lot by watching.”
If you have been observing and taking it all in, then you now realize that our American democracy is taking its last breaths. For over four decades, Republicans have been intentionally “drowning government in a bathtub.”In the last several years, the Republican Party has been succeeding in destroying governmental institutions, such as closing all three pandemic offices just before a worldwide pandemic swept the country and the world.
The moment has arrived. Will enough of us fight back, in every way we can, or will our democratic republic die kicking and screaming in the tub water?
One bizarre, upside-down, undemocratic danger to our democracy is that it is governed by a minority, not by a majority of “We the People.” And, that minority just happens to hate democracy. Democracy gets in the way of maximizing their power and profits.
