There seems to be this constant bickering about how good or how bad the presidency before the current democratic contradiction to conservative perceptions of how to govern gains even further inroads to quashing 'we the people.' As this observer intimated before, the administration of former President Trump (even supposed conservatives like the term 'former') was not meant to last. There are reasons too few understood as to why the time spent under that administration was intended to last as briefly as it did. It was a political anomaly. Question: does/did America deserve the freedoms guaranteed by law and order?
Think about it; too many are inclined to compromise for the sake of complacent attitudes about good versus evil; how quickly 'quiet protests' turned violent and those in charge DID NOTHING!
For over two hundred years the fight against malicious government was fought and in times past that was seemingly sufficient to keep America free. Apparently, not any more. President Trump was elected, not by a unified electorate that wanted to return to decent pursuits of liberty, but by powers that sought to increase the values of their political portfolios and saw a chance to inflate those questionable values.
The appearance to some that freedom of intangible things like freedom of religion was going to flourish under the 45th Administration were fooled into thinking that religion in and of itself, would be sought after by a majority resurgence of such things; only to be dismayed by finding out this was not spiritually founded. The Presidency of Donald J Trump was the anomaly spoken of here to make the very opposite point. The only advancement made was the truth not followed; the righteousness not sought out.

However, President Trump did succeed in one thing; yet the failure of the American electorate to defend its integrity does not make that plain; America is now on notice that it can no longer depend upon its own integrity, having surrendered to the political delusion that America is to be delivered to the evil now in power. The four years under President Trump merely delayed the inevitable, now on the immediate event horizon. The current administration is hell bent on making that inevitability happen. Is anyone ready? It was not President Trump's fault that too few people understood; it's all their own fault they could not bring themselves to believe.
