With the trumps and his acolytes in congress and the judiciary, conservatism has taken our American society to a place of shame, ignorance and hate. The daily attacks on equality over race, gender, class and constitutional rights, the conservatives are showing that they are a mean and nasty paternal party with an aim to control. They were elected on false promises and now are in the progress of changing the rules of democracy so that they can keep the power they were elected to hold. The republican party is where the worst of conservatives congregate and it is at the altar of trump that they now serve. Never before in my years of my living have I seen such a blatant disregard for the rule of law and the formative principles of democracy.
Our nation is at a crossroads in time that will define the fate of our nation. Our current arrogance in leadership will likely prove to be our undoing not only as a democracy but as a world power. We are alienating nations of the world who would be our allies and making them consider us as potential enemies. Our internal struggle at the moment to contain and bring to heel the out of control conservative movement is at hand and will make or break us depending on how the outcome swings. I cannot fathom the idea of the conservative republicans through the trumps and his vultures continuing to defy logic and rule of law but I may only be at the first stage of denial.
