The Death of Democracy in America.

It is sad to watch democracy die. The more we see. The more we hear. The more we understand is happening south of the Canada-U.S. border, the more our concern grows.

And why are we only watching? Mr. Trump’s friend Vladimir Putin is actively supporting this demolition of what once was the bastion of freedom in the Americas. The Chinese wrote off the Trump regime as a worthy ally or foe after few attempts at partnering.

The Chinese now treat Canada as but a Quisling to a corrupt regime in Washington. And the vaunted open border between the long-time allies remains closed to the careless denial of the Corona pandemic by the Trump white house.

But did America not bring on this low point in history on itself? Or is it just the end of times as foretold in the Book of Revelation?

Is the colour of one’s skin the determiner of opportunity? Can a nation for long bar the gates to enter its realm? Does a wall make you safe? And from what dangers?

Can an autocrat declare this or that religion safe to proselytize in the land of the free? And in a land of free speech, who speaks the truth?

And is it just the Beast who speaks the truth of America?  Can constant lies hold sway over so many believers?

Philanderer, egomaniac, narcissist, you betray the Americans who call you Commander-in-Chief. You seek to suppress a free vote. You betray the very origin of America.
