But the further correction: America is not a monarchy either - President Trump was elected president, no matter the lies you seem to believe that says otherwise. This observer, as an American citizen who has/had, even for the slightest period of time, enjoyed the freedom of citizenship that President Trump's tightly held administration provided. Only in the angst driven antipathies of socialist secularistic aversions to those freedoms, which seek to hold the people to the fear driven response to the 'pestilence' of the Chinese COVID19 attack, does anyone think trying to smear President Trump with the epithet of 'monarch' is appropriate, which further shows that ignorance of the left as it is shown.
The analogy, as one might describe the comparison of a socialist takeover of a democracy versus a monarchy, is still valid; for it is not the form of government that is vulnerable, but the people so seduced that are the victims at the hands of the perpetrators stealing the government trust. George Washington, the first president who did not allow America to become a replacement monarchy when asked to become king; knew that as well as the other (Divinely led) founders; but being truly American requires acquiescence to that condition of freedom, something lost in a socialistic secularist's (Democratic Socialist) ideology and reasoning that not being American is not all that easily understood. Even some Americans have forgotten or choose to ignore in apathetic erudite intellectual arrogance.
Where will freedom be found now that President Trump's followers are being targeted to keep from pursuing peace in the world that no longer seeks America's former model of peace?
Beware of China now - was China not a former monarchy before the people were seduced by socialism.
