American Consequences - November 2020

maintains the bureaucracy. That is if say AOC or Ilhan Omar became key players in the oligarchy, it would definitely push the country even more to the left. America could be a one party country just like the states of California, Illinois, New York etc. Now that being said, I think this whole left, right, Republican, Democrat, Liberal or Conservative label is a bunch of bunk. Human nature will always win out. As far as America is concerned... I’ll let this quote from Frank Zappa sum it all up... “When the illusion of freedom becomes too expensive to maintain, they will strike down the sets, pull back the curtain and you will see the brick wall in the back of the theater.” Thank You – Paul S. P.J. O’Rourke Response: And thank you, Paul, for that brilliant quote from Frank Zappa. (Who was, in fact, libertarian/conservative in his political views.)

The Media Should Take Note It seems to me the problem isn’t media bias, but Trump’s unwillingness to tolerate any criticism or contradiction. Unfortunately, her hasn’t grown on the job and remains unsuited and unqualified to be President, just as Mitt Romney said in March 2016.
