  8. Democrat party controls the media In Hollywood, controls the ballot by ignoring the primary votes of the people and instead let’s the PACs decide. They use Antifa and BLM to intimidate anyone that disagrees with them. Similarly they discredit anyone who disagrees with them. They should mention they created an indoctrination program through our public schools too.

    I love how all the authoritarians think they aren’t authoritarian. An obsession with men in positions of power and bootlicking corporations, Trump, and the police and military. Hey, remember when Trump joked about Ali Velshi, a reporter, getting hit in the knee cap with a rubber bullet and his supporters laughed and Trump called it a beautiful thing? Yeah, not authoritarian at all.

  11. We are a constitutional republic, while we have some ways of democracy we are not an unfettered democracy

    • Hello,
      It is a pleasure to meet you up online here. Like to tell you that I like to make new friends with people who enjoys the company of another and happy with the gifts of life.

  15. 1 guaranteed sign of your country losing its democracy, is your country always having been a republic.

    Also what is considered a “real opposition party”. Sounds like another way to sideskirt democracy.
