More than a century ago, Grover Cleveland, 22nd & 24th president said “The ship of democracy, which has weathered all storms, may sink through the mutiny of those on board.” Lo and behold! As if Grover Cleveland prophesized, on January 6, 2021, a mutiny organized, promoted (through propaganda, lies and deceptions), encouraged, supported and condoned by Republican elected officials across the country (GOP Congressmen, Senators, governors, mayors, other state officials) led by their leader Donald Trump, executed by throngs of rioters, outlaws and insurrectionists fulfilled a frightful prophecy which was witnessed the world over. Such rebellion against the Constitution will undoubtedly be recorded in the annals of history as the beginning of the end of democracy in America.
Although we Americans, and also quite possibly the rest of the world have placed the blame of that calamity on the one individual – Donald Trump 45th president of the United States – who was supposed to prevent such from happening, the crisis has its roots deeply embedded in a political party that can only be referred to today as the Anti-Democratic Party (or ADP, formerly known as the Republican Party or GOP). That is in essence what gives.
The two preceding paragraphs represent a summary to explain how the US democracy came crumbling down, causing human casualties and also leaving trails of damages that will continue to destroy what’s left of the Constitution, and piles of rubbles to remind future generations their ancestors – who were members of the ADP – deliberately chose to destroy the nation they have now inherited.
