“A growing sense of unease presently pervades the American consciousness. Americans are no longer as confident in their nation and self-assured as they once were. A sense of frustration and anger underscores American consciousness. Americans are looking over our shoulder at other emerging economic juggernauts and wondering if we can still be world’s social, political, and economic leader when Congress cannot even manage to balance the national budget. The thought that we are diminishing in stature in the eyes of the international community constantly torments Americans. Faded glory strikes a crippling blow to the American psyche. Analogous to an aging beauty queen, America might still possess a golden crown, but she lost her luster. In an eroding empire, Americans feel like second-class citizens in the union of nations.”

Pay us to protect you, and if you don't, we throw you in jail (violence).
Democracy is the fraud that purports to give 'power to the people.'
All it does is give power to a select group of people (politicians) that are nothing more than actors that appeal to a specific group of people who elect these actors under the supposed agreement that they will do things to support the voting group's aims.
The actual carrying out of the people's aims is far removed from what is promised to what is done. It is even further away from any accountability to what happens vs. what was said was supposed to happen.
Democracy descends into mob rule and will always destroy itself given enough time.
"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."—John Adams"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury."― Alexander Fraser Tytler
This is America
7 Trillion or so in government spending and 4ish trillion in tax revenue, and mostly because every politician that went on a podium and said "Vote for me" said it by saying, "I'll give you stuff, do things, and otherwise expand the scope and budget of the government and you'll be better off… therefore Vote for me."
This means that every U.S. election in history has moved us one step closer to complete tyranny and collapse.
This shows us how democracy is a Frankenstein—it grows and gobbles up resources until there is nothing left to gobble up, at which point it must be put down.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.--That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.Prudence, indeed, will dict
