  •  Empire Time? (2+ / 0-)

    Maybe we're moving from the Republic to the Empire. This is the way it changed in Rome. Under the first Emperors, Augustus and Tiberius, people stopped speaking out and started saying yes to everything. In fact, that's how those guys got to be Emperors.

    •  Disgusted (4+ / 0-)

      I am just disgusted with what this man has done to our country. Our credibility is in the toilet. Moral authority? We don't have any. We are not seen as the good guys anymore, it seems. Instead, we are the English Crown in the modern world.

      The definition of Republican politics or conservatism is a contradiction of terms. They say they are the party of morality, but the biggest (and perhaps all) backers of torture are conservative.

      It is a constant annoyance and source of disgrace for me. I believe in the USA and what it originally stood for. Something that has been lost in the last five years.
