Guardrails of Democracy Removed

The problem is not without a solution however. The framers of our Constitution did make provision for handling a rogue president, an incompetent one and yes even an unpatriotic one. But laws, principles, guidelines, legislations are useless if ignored; they must be accepted, followed, enforced.

For many decades, the country as a whole believed the Republican Party was the standard bearer of patriotism, family values and fiscal responsibilities. Such belief permeated the American culture not because it was ever true but rather because we, as a society, are a nation who has embraced Christianity, we are a nation of believers.

Mistakenly, we had deferred all claims of morality and values to those who had forcefully claimed they have and practiced Christianity regularly. They have been at the forefront of a movement geared towards making themselves the authority in those matters. They succeeded.
