When asked if we had a republic or a monarchy, Benjamin Franklin’s response was, “A Republic, if you can keep keep it.” A republic is a form of government in which “elected officials represent the citizen body.”

We are getting dangerously close to not “being able to keep it.” The most frightening thing about today’s GOP is their blind allegiance to President Trump. They don’t represent the citizens, they serve as Trump’s toadies. Trump has stated he should get a term longer than four years dictated by the Constitution. He has said his supporters might demand that he serve more than two terms. It may seem like our country is going to hell in a hand basket, but in reality it is being dragged behind a golf cart into fascism. That golf cart is going as fast as it can go while carrying a man of Trump’s bulk. We all need to stop that golf cart before it’s too late.

Don’t think Trump is fascist, open two browser windows. In one Google Trump, and Google Benito Mussolini in the other. Watch footage of them giving speeches side by side. The only difference is the language being spoken and Mussolini has better hair.
