Trump destroying country right before our eyes

What is happening to our country? We have a lawless president, complicit Republican senators and now, a corrupt attorney general. When elected officials and their appointed cronies lie, cheat and steal to stay in power, we are inching closer to a dictatorship and further from the democracy envisioned by our founding fathers.

When a president has an "enemies list" and uses his position to try to have them prosecuted, we are in a very precarious position. What is even more disturbing is to watch rallies during which our fellow citizens chant "lock her up," and hoot and holler when the POTUS encourages hate, racism and even shooting asylum seekers at the southern border!

This sickens and saddens me. Whatever hold this president/cult leader has over these people must be discouraged at every turn.

He lies, instills fear and cultivates hate while people cheer and egg him on. And he even has a cable news network echoing his ugly messages and lying to protect him. If Nixon had been protected by his very own "state TV" network, perhaps his corruption would have never been revealed.

Our country is becoming less and less recognizable. I am no longer proud to be an American. Let's examine who we want to be going forward.
