    Did you ever wonder why democracies did not spring up organically from Communist countries even after decades? Because no matter what is on paper, the system is antithetical to human nature, human freedom and democracy. And un-american.

    Where did Trump stop anyone from voting, or even try? So how is he anti-democratic?

    The Dems have nothing that is likely to excite their base and Trump is coming in with several huge advantages. WAY too early to call a race - but it's a week before and your horse is limping...

    First off, the republican party has, for decades, been trying to stop people, democrats, from voting, and Trump is carrying on with that tradition. Second, Trump has been undermining democratic institutions since day one in office. The CIA, the FBI, the DOJ, the free press, and if you allow him to continue, you are going to have yourself a true dictator on your hands rather than a just wannabe dictator and you can kiss your democracy goodby.

    Then why is he focusing on things like locking children up in cages and race-baiting if he has such huge advantages? It will be the Dems on on one side side - with thoughtful and engaged criticism coupled with a progressive legislative agenda, verses a dangerous throng spewing cheap insults, racist taunts and explicit threats egged on by Trump himself. THIS is how the election is shaping up.
