Just a quick thought, as I was looking at the Declaration of Independence online, today.
Would the current Republican Party have been in favor of signing it? Are the ultra-rich overlords that we currently have, and Republicans idolize, any different from the King of England?
Since the massive majority of Republicans must believe that the rich deserve to control the country much more than they, themselves, do, wouldn't they be more comfortable in a monarchy? When is the last time the Republicans have gone against the ultra-rich? Why bother with any form of democracy, when the rich are ALWAYS, by definition, correct?
Have a wonderful 4th of July, Kossacks, and thank you for all you do. Most days, this place is my only refuge from indecency, stupidity, and hatred in our country.
