Proof That Democratic Ideals Needed People of Integrity to Enforce Protection of American Ideals

Reader comment on item: Fellow Conservatives, Please Reject Conspiracy Theories
in response to reader comment: Travesty of democracy

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), May 2, 2022 at 23:20

The politcal processes necessary to retrieve some semblence of the former strength that 'made America great' are apparently not immediately availble, the integrity that initial founders relied upon some two hundred forty years now spent and replaced by the same type of politcal racketeering that made Tamany Hall famous.
The politcal fortunes of America were not kindly treated in the beginning of the twenty-first century, the issues of Y2K apparently masking subliminal actions that were designed to wrest control away from Constitutional controls and protections and vest them in bureaucratic authoritarianism by which unelected 'officials' were now empowered to operate in substitution to the legal processes and impose whatever socialist ideology that was argued as being superior to the will of 'we the people', a process that was doubly employed by fiat in the 44th American Administration, now being emulated in the 46th American Administration.
No modern American politician, with few exceptions, operates in the spirit model of the founders: bad applications of replacement democracy are the rule today: therein lays the travesty.
