The attacks on our democratic form of government have increased so much over the past four years that I am now fully convinced that Vladmir Putin has either given or promised trump some good deals, or maybe he really does have an highly embarrassing video of him. trump, Barr, McConnell and many others have abused or ignored government regulations and Constitutional law so much that our country is in more peril than many imagine. All their actions fly in the face of long-held government protocol, necessary environmental and financial regulation, and they are baiting so many splinter groups that the national divide may soon become unbridgeable. This benefits Russia and China greatly, and other countries who would like to see the mostly successful experiment in democratic government fail. These men are worse criminals than some of Georgie Bush’s pals, and who will bring them to account?
