A test for democracy? I'll say. We know now, as of this week, that the
Trump family corresponded with Russia to spread the stolen Democratic Party
documents through Wikileaks. Or as Mormons might say, the
Constitution hangs by a thread.
@scrappy do "if we got back to the constitution and limited government we
would not be in such a bad place"Like say, 1861? The
Constitution allowed black slavery, so it's not so holy. Moreover, the Constitution also allows wage slavery, i.e. that most of
population must survive by selling their labor power only, owning none of means
of production except their own sweat. The Constitution is a vital
document, but is corrupt too.
The democratic institutions Trump and Bannon are so eager to destroy are the
very same institutions that ultimately will send both of them to the glue
In the years since the 1970s have not changed our politicians much. In that
time, we went from Senator Moss to Senator Hatch.This President
didn’t get very many votes in Utah, a red state.People are to
search out good politicians and not just accept those that may be willing that
have money, power and influence.Utah Representatives and Senators
should be more attuned to the processes in our of good citizens in the State and
Nationally.We have been cautioned “We have learned by sad
experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as
they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to
exercise unrighteous dominion.”May are Senators and
Representatives do the right thing.“We believe that
governments were instituted of God for the benefit of man; and that he holds men
accountable for their acts in relation to them, both in making laws and
administering them, for the good and safety of society.”Bob
Wood sends his same message since the 1970s that “Democracy Dies in
Well written article.
Stupidity rules in America.
The way I see it, much of the divisiveness today is caused the intolerance by
many on the left for ideas that disagree with their own. While the same is true
for some on the far right, the violence and angry rhetoric today is largely from
the left. We each must grow to the point that we can recognize the
validity of opposing views and live with them.
Democracy will surviveBut it’s gonna be a bare knuckle fight
democracy.. read your history books.. Congress is actually more civilized these
days... the problem with our democracy is that we have elected too many
incompetent fools who have a built a bureaucracy filled with more incompetent
fools.. if we got back to the constitution and limited government we would not
be in such a bad place
As a registered democrat I am not surprised. We have two parties that are polar
opposite, should we be surprised? Our country has been divided before, and will
be again after this passes.
