Values voters are afraid of immigrants, minorities, addicts, deviants and convicts and as a result are willing to tolerate a low level of police brutality and high incarceration rates in order to feel safe in their communities. Conservatives wish they could return to an earlier time in white American history, when neighborhood watch patrols weren’t necessary—that’s why astute republican politicians pretending to be populists, hawk the “MAGA” campaign slogan.
However due to the low morale of officers, deputies and their corrupt union leaders, society believes that these government agencies aren’t keeping up with their side of the bargain. Despite how much of the tax-payer’s money is spent on these “law and order” initiatives and the pro-police rhetoric coming from their elected officials—the state of affairs still appear to be deteriorating fast. Consequently the patriots have become cynical and no longer have any faith, that their country’s political culture will ever turn around. Disturbingly the public is approaching the point of desperation, where they are willing to turn their back on democracy and replace it with a police state.

“Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety. By: Benjamin Franklin
“Only a fool believes that draconian laws, don’t turn liberty into tyranny.” By: B. Bondsman
“First, note how important the qualifiers are: essential Liberty, a little Safety, and temporary at that. Sure, once you put it that way, who but a fool would give up something ‘essential’ to get ‘a little temporary’ something else. Indeed, once we label something ‘essential,’ that itself is an assertion that we shouldn’t be giving it up (at least unless we get something even more essential in exchange). One can just as well say, Those who would give up essential Safety, to purchase a little temporary Liberty, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. After all, if the safety is really that essential, how could we reasonably give it up just to get a little temporary something else (even something as important as liberty)?” Excerpt from Liberty, safety, and Benjamin Franklin
“But if the story is about Republican candidates who say in absolute terms that they have no business running for public office; that they don’t believe in democracy; that indeed they have contempt for the very idea of normal people manifesting their destinies; […] With that, citizens know what to do. That paradox is, of course, this: Republican candidates who are hostile to democracy are asking voters to entrust them with democracy. They are saying, ‘I can’t be trusted.’ […] When you allow anti-democrats to sit at the negotiating table of democracy, little gets done, because the table’s been depoliticized. That, of course, is the ultimate objective of these Republican anti-democrats. They strive to make democracy unworkable, ungovernable and unbearable, hoping to drive republican citizens into despairing whether they can manifest their own destinies. Fortunately, they are telling us who they are.” Excerpt from Republican anti-democrats are telling us who they are
Final Thoughts: Sooner or later everybody ends up fighting the same battles. What’s really going on in the minds of the christian nationalist and republicans is that they’re hoping that if they keep the ultra MAGA movement going, they’ll eventually be able to eradicate the socialist democrats, black lives matter marxists and all the disenfranchised who keep gaming government social programs, because the fear in their hearts has triggered hate mongering for whomever Trump frames as unpatriotic. How will they do that? Extradition, segregation, re-education, there are too many citizens in prison, already, it’s impossible! Or are they hoping, for America to become a fascist nation by inciting the Alt-right mob to start a campaign of terror? But there’s a drawback, to this diabolical plan, because when martial law kicks in the door, you can kiss all your constitutional protections goodbye. I repeat, if you or the police state mess up, there’s no civil rights defense!
For a government, to facilitate the detainment of undesirable groups, it has to suspend the constitutional protections of the infected community. But here’s the danger with this scenario, can you trust them to lift martial law, after they’ve completed the round-up, or will they use the pretense, that it’s not safe, yet? History tells us that after the citizens surrender their civil rights, chances are they ain’t getting them back.
“Democracy rests on four pillars: legislature, executive, judiciary and the press. However, if the citizens allow one of the pillars to be cut off, it becomes crippled and if a second one is removed it dies.” By: A. Freeman
