It is more than difficult to grasp that Americans of the Democratic ilk remain unable to see through the illegitimacy of the Biden regime; especially in view of the Afghanistan catastrophe. To suggest that Dems are myopic to political reality; as they remain victims of Trump Derangement Syndrome and willfully ignorant of the fact that the country is experiencing an escalation of multiple crisis occurring simultaneously. And that these crises, deliberate and intentional, are focused on destroying American sovereignty as well as our guaranteed freedoms and privileges set in place since George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention in 1787.

We now know that the Dem reality is sufficiently skewed as to represent a startlingly different truth of how the world operates and that today’s Dems are no longer the same party many of us signed up for years ago. Since the 2016 election, they have revealed themselves to be more akin to liberal fascists offering a kind of benign tyranny with rough edges as they espouse a view that all areas of life must be subject to the State’s dictates; its purpose to assure a uniformity of national intent to align with their version of a perfect world order.

I can attest to the fact that many Dems do not follow politics closely enough to grasp what has happened to the anti-Vietnam war party or the party that once cherished civil liberties. They are the Facebook wing of the Democratic party who are addicted to playing social media on a daily basis and by rote, without any intellectualizing, remain devoted to what was once a proud Democratic party tradition. Those days are over as the party has succumbed to its darker impulses of totalitarian control over every aspect of social and political order.

Many moons ago as I joined the legislative staff at Friends of the Earth in Washington, DC, its founder, David Brower, took me aside for a teaching moment about what to expect in Congress. Brower, who was an internationally respected environmental leader, was subject of John McPhee’s “Encounters with the Arch Druid” and had been executive director at the Sierra Club before founding FOE. In a nutshell, Brower suggested that I would always know where the Republicans stood on any issue. They would let me know upfront where their line was, when and where they might consider crossing it but that I would never be in doubt about what the Republican position was – and I could take that to the bank.

On the other hand, Brower asserted that the Democrats would tell me what I wanted to hear. They would then proceed to do exactly as they wanted whether or not it fit with our environmental agenda, with no apology or forewarning, with no opportunity to influence the outcome. No, I thought, that can’t be right. The Dems were the white hats; it was the R’s who could not be trusted. But Brower, who was then regarded as a Democratic icon, was firm and certain. He was speaking from a sometime bitter experience in dealing with partisan politics. The full truth of Brower’s warning stayed with me over the years and, more recently, has been born out in spades.

During my years in DC, my issue was nuclear energy which was then a hot-button issue with an active anti-nuke presence throughout the country.  In those days, there were still enough Dems who could be counted on to be critical of the then powerful commercial nuclear industry and to oppose the experimental Clinch River Breeder Reactor (CRBR).  The CRBR which would be fueled by and create its own weapons-grade plutonium, was proposed to be the next generation of electricity after the current light water reactors.

It was a time when we could still count on a Democratic Governor; in this case Gov. Scott Matheson of Utah, to resist the Department of Energy’s misguided plan to build a high level nuclear waste repository on the border of Canyonlands National Park. In a dramatic scenario that rivaled a Hollywood inspired script, the morning that a Temporary Restraining Order was placed on DOE preventing their contractors from setting up to conduct an ‘experimental’ drilling program, Matheson immediately  sent out the State Police to pull the trucks over and send them home; thus removing the Canyonlands location at Six Shooter Peaks from further DOE consideration.

By the time of the 2000 election, I had left DC and had seen enough to question the Democratic choice of Al Gore as their candidate against GW Bush. I knew Gore from his days in the House, but not well as I found him to be aloof and not friendly although allegedly we were on the same side. I soon discovered that was not true. As fate would have it, the CRBR was to be located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee which was in Gore’s House district. So Mr. Environment proved to be no hard core environmentalist at all as he supported CRBR every step along the way until it was defunded by a bi-partisan coalition with the National Taxpayers Union in 1985.

I was living in Colorado by then which was then still a red-purple state with an easy decision to vote for neither Bush nor Gore. Ralph Nader was on the ballot as a Green candidate and I had known Ralph in DC to be a credible man of integrity and still believe he would have been an excellent non partisan President. So as Bush ‘won’ the 2000 race, what difference did it really make as the Dems supported his attack on Iraq and its alleged weapons of mass destruction, his attack on Afghanistan, the alleged War on Terror and supported the Patriot Act.

In 2008 there was an opportunity to support Obama’s “Change you can believe” which never convinced me and proved to be another shallow empty promise. Obama dropped more bombs, invaded more countries, began war in four countries living in peace in 2008, appointed HRC as Secretary of State and prosecuted more Americans under the Espionage Act than any other President.

By the time 2016 rolled around, it was a foregone conclusion that I would not be voting for Hillary and, to my amazement, I almost immediately lost every Democratic friend I had. There was no discussion or communication allowed; they are unable to critically or analytically think for themselves, preferring to echo meaningless headlines – I was either in or I was out.

When HRC crossed the line declaring a ‘basket of deplorables’ who held “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic” views which she determined to be “irredeemable,” Trump’s promise of no new foreign wars won me over. By the time of Russiagate, I was lost to the Dems forever.

The rest, as they say, is history. Today, as our country experiences the disintegration of one emergency into a full-fledged crisis of epic proportions, the Democrats, as partners in running the government, have no policy ideas to contribute or sense of doing what is right for the country. The Dems have abandoned America in favor of an illusory doomed fantasy of a socialist/communist world with no understanding of its true future implications of less freedom, less happiness, more censorship, increased inflation with a lower standard of living and more State control with a ‘free’ economy where nothing is ‘free’.

It frightens the hell out of me to acknowledge that the Democrats, like any good fascists, love their political party more than they love the country of their birth.
