Tyranny of the Minority: How American Democracy Came to the Breaking Point
Has America decayed to such a point that a small minority of rebellious citizens is holding sway over the nations future?
Most of you are just trying to make ends meet, make a living, survive your adversities, feed your children etc.
And now we must worry about if we and our children will get killed when we go shopping!
Has people who are essentially godless in their thinking taken up the MAGA flag to force a certain point of view on everyone else?
This same minority has managed to put the 2 nd amendment above all of culture and has embraced a mindset of daily killings as the price for having guns.
Will Trump and his authoritarian lackies take America to the heights of Banana Republic status?
Time will tell!
