The President Who Poisons All He Touches: Donald Trump, the First American Dictator

August 17, 2020

Yet another outstanding essay from Padre Steve. Barely a day goes by that Donald Trump does not fit the description provided in the title. Whether he’s spewing lies about voter fraud while simultaneously trying to dismember the USPS to prevent people from voting against him in November, or expounding about how perfectly he has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic. Trump never shows any indication that he can change the aberrant direction in which he is ruling, rather than leading, this country.

Small wonder neither Trump nor anyone associated with his Administration or campaign organization is publicly asking the question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?’ For the vast majority of Americans would be a resounding, “NO!” Needless to say, most of us know that another four years would be even worse. His joking about a third and fourth term does not seem to me to be a joke at all – which is why he must be defeated before he can even be inaugurated a second time. – rjc

Liddell-Hart and some others of note as to what happens when authoritarian, or authoritarian leaders gain control of a government. His Liddell-Hart’s words, from his short, but profound book Why Don’t We Learn from History are worth the considered read for anyone with an open mind who can, despite the proliferation of propaganda can still…

  1. Let’s hope he’s our first and last dictator. I’m cautiously optimistic for Biden-Harris-2020, but we may first have to survive an unprecedented constitutional crisis if/when he declares the “rigged election” invalid. Many long, difficult months to go, I’m afraid …

  2. Ponder this quote from the 1000s of pages in preparation for the Nuremberg trials. “The Nazi conspirators used the legislative and judicial powers of the German Reich to terrorize all political opponents…and take power”

    Amendment XII leaves Trump a path to a second term with his recent comments calling mail in voting a fraud. Sounds similar to what the Nazi Regime did during the 1930s.
