If you’ve ever wondered how a democratic country can become a dictatorship, just look around you right now. The current “president” of the United States has:
- Tried to ban immigration
- Arrested journalists for covering events unflattering to him
- Tried to silence the media
- Told people to ignore the media and only listen to him
- Fired people for daring to challenge him
- Uses his own private security force, loyal only to him personally
- Trying to concentrate power in a small group of people and bypass the legislative branch
- Removed military leaders from decision making about national security
- Describes people who disagree with him as having “betrayed” their country
These are not the actions of a free and democratic society, they are the actions of a despot.
We do not have a president anymore; we have a tyrant, and he deserves to be deposed as one.
