Democracy Based off of the Laws, as Well as the People Too

The dissection of how people mistook DICTATORSHIP for DEMOCRACY here!  Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

For these past few months, the politics from the other side of the Pacific developed like the reality shows of Hollywood.  Before January 6th, the most talented scriptwriters may not ever even be able to imagine the climax of how the people took over Capitol Hill.  And even as Biden took office, the sequel to “How American Fell”, the sequel may start filming soon.

In our memories, the American democracy had been a protocol of all democratic governments.  The American can hold their heads up high, tell the world, “Take from our example!”, and the Taiwanese politicians, scholars, or the talk show hosts, whenever they spoke on democracy, the answer is always: take after them!  Popular votes for the presidential elections, and the presidents can only serve two terms, with a bipartisanship legislative body, focusing on human rights.  In this standards, the previous heads of states, Chiang Kai-Shek and Chiang Ching-Kuo would receive “Fs”.

The U.S. is a first democracy that’s written its own constitution, for the over two hundred years since the beginning of the country, it had, continually, progressed!  And yet, there are, so many holes in the system.  First, the U.S. relied on the slaves of Africa, slain the natives (the war with the Indians lasted up to three hundred years on end), and, taking over Mexico, so the WHITES have everything they need.  Undeniable though, the leaderships from the elections, has its pros.  There were, surely, many outstanding heads of the states, even as the voters selected a mediocre president, the three branches were able to, even things out, so the president knew his, limits.

And yet, this system was based off of ruling by the people; with the prerequisite of the man in the seat willing to follow the rules.  But, Trump didn’t buy it, and that was when the world finally realized, that the American democracy WAS, a house of cards, with the rules set up, and those who are law-abiding, following them.  Like the inaugural address of Biden, which he’d stated, “the American democracy is something fragile AND precious!”

In fighting to gain power, the American court systems showed its independent from the legislative and the executive branches, with the mainstream media, all, keeping their guards up.  And yet, Trump was able to, split the States up just seventy-seven days after the election, holding the Republic legislators hostage, spreading the false news of how Biden had cheated in the elections.  He will continue to hold the Republican Party hostage.

The Yale History Professor, Schneider in his “American Abyss”, pointed out, that Trump had used many lies to sway the public, like how those who’d supported Hitler before he came to power.  And, after the truth was known, he worried, that American is on the verge of getting taken over by Fascism.  This sort of an end-of-the world belief, is prevalent, in the European and American media like CNN and the New York Times, a Pulitzer writer published the book, “The Sunset of Democracy” just last year.

Or maybe, a decade from now, we will find, that we’d bore witness to—the result that not everybody will feel glad over the decline of “Pax Americana”.  From how Athens was defeated by Sparta, how many democracies had been, laid, to rest, which showed, how democracy IS not the way to keep a nation going on forever, and so, how can the U.S. be the exception of that?

Looking at the U.S. now, think about Taiwan’s past, as well as its future too.  Thanks to the hard work of the DDP’s blackening, making Chiang Kai-Shek the most infamous evil in our history.  And yet, even the American democracy can become so damaged because of just one man, what reasons have we believe, that if Chiang took the gold after being defeated by China and ran off, or how the two former presidents decided to have the popular votes for presidents, the democracy of this island can continue to date?  Chiang’s rule may NOT be fitting to today’s standards, but, his ruling over the people, had made us into, who we currently, are.

He was the only one who can control the nationalist army, to fight against Mao, he’d also, put everything in education, as well as constructing the country too, based off of the book by the Harvard scholar, Tao’s “Chiang Kai-Shek’ and the Fight for Modern China”, Chiang WAS, the cornerstone of Taiwanese democracy.

“Everything has its time”.  That was, a famous line out of the Bible.  This is so with democracy too, and we can, only, follow this path onward.  The three-legged cat democracy is way more fragile compared to the American democracy, with the politicians, the talk show hosts spreading the wayward thoughts, there’s no balancing of power under Tsai’s rule.  Comparing us to Burma, we are, somehow, a richer society, that found its roots in the authoritarian eras, with the basis of implementing democracy.  Those who are singing those songs of reforms should think: how’s the outlook for the prematurely birthed, Taiwanese, democracy?

And so, this, is still how the government, ruled by Tsai (the president by the “majority”, because the majority of us who are against her rule, we don’t go to the polls?) is headed towards, and she’s still, wearing that HALO of DEMOCRACY (demoCRAZY is more like it!), and ruling this country like she OWNS it, and the people here, are just, way too, FUCKING (so???) blind to see it, and we have only ONE way to go in this country, D-O-W-N!

But hey, look on the bright SIDE, when this god DAMN country finally HIT the ROCK HARD bottom, it then has no other places to go, but U-P!  So yeah, how’s that for dissection…

Looking the Other Way, is What Got Us Where We Are Today

Observation of how Trump refused to turn over power, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A few years ago, a group of scholars including the Harvard Professor, Cass Sunstein warned, that there might be a fascist U.S. president, the Trump fans called them paranoid freedomists.

At the presidential election last year, the writer, Tony Schwartz who wrote Trump’s, “The Art of the Deal” prophesied, that if Trump lost the election, he will get his supporters and followers to violently turn over the results of the election, the Trump fans laughed and made fun of him for being paranoid freedomist too.

But, these two prophecies made by the “paranoid freedomists” both came true.  In the four year term that Trump’s had, he’d become like a dictator, he’d not drained the swamps of D.C., but the oxygen of the democracy of the U.S.; the Trump fans, in his directing them to, urging them to, took Capitol Hill, and it’d made the United State turned into a banana republic overnight.

Reasonably, the American democracy could NOT allow a FACIST take control of the country that long, nor would it allow for an uprising, a coup d’état of sorts; but, how could Trump do as he pleased for four whole years?  And, how come, the riots, the takeover over of governments of third-world nations is currently, happening, in U.S.?  The New York Times’ columnist, Cruman gave us the answer, “We’d indulged him too long!”

Indulging is the same as quietly consenting, and encouraging, it’s also, the politician’s dope.  In the past, the people put up with Trump’s bad ways: he’d shamed women constantly, the people looked the other way; discriminated against minorities and Muslims, people allowed for it; firing the members of his own cabinets, the people allowed for that too; used the attacks to defame the media press, the people looked the other way; not opening his assets to public records, evading taxes, people of the States had, looked, the other way; privately funding his own campaigns from Russia, people chose to ignore; lied habitually, people didn’t stop him from it; along with, an assortments of other bad behaviors that the American public chose NOT to acknowledge.

Letting Trump slide is equivalent to rationalizing all of his mistakes.  He is a pathological liar, while those who’d allowed him to lie constantly told, that he was telling, an alternative form of the truth; he’d taken the U.S. out of world organizations, those who supported him said it was “to make America great again!”; he’d fired the members of his own cabinet, and obstructed the justice systems, his supporter said he was “bringing the deepest conspiracies of the government out into the open.”

People kept allowing Trump to do what he wanted to, and he’d not gotten punished for it, and, for the followers who saw him as Messiah, they’d, naturally, followed his lead.  The white supremacy groups started, getting bigger locally, QAnon and other extreme right groups kept spreading the conspiracy theories without any solid proof, and, the militia groups that stemmed from these took guns into the state congress of Michigan to protest, even made plans to kidnap the Democratic governor; Krugman described these two incidents in Michigan as a rehearsal for Trump fans’ assault on the Capitol.

Of course, the members of the Republican congress also allowed Trump to become the “Almighty”.  The party system of congress of U.S. worked in the checks and balances, but of late, the Republican became Trump’s private machine for the past four years, at his, disposal; as the impeachment call of Trump was being discussed, all the Republicans voted against his impeachment, and even AS the Trump fans took down Capitol Hill, there were still eight members of the Senate, along with 139 representatives of the House who’d, voted against his impeachment.  As the Vice President, Pence and the majority leader, severed it off with Trump before the votes, but they’d, allowed Trump to do as he pleased for FOUR whole years, they’re, responsible for what is happening now; as for those White House staff members, and members of Trump’s cabinet who’d severed the ties by quitting, they were only, trying, to save themselves before the big ship sank, and, at that last moment, they’d, finally realized that they were on the wrong side, and it’s, already, too late.

Tolerating Trump is what led to this, it’s also what made the fascisms, take over the American democracy, “if you think after Biden took office at the White House, all those rioters would vanish, then, you must be, delusional!”, that, is what Krugman is most worried about, “Then, what can we do?  It’s time, to stop those, fascists, stop, tolerating them now!”, this was the summation of Krugman’s observation over the last four years as Trump acted as the president of the U.S.; and to the rest of the democracies in the world, the falling, the destruction of American democracy showed, “if this can happen in the U.S., it can happen, anywhere else too!”

And, absolute power equals absolute abuse, is what this showed, now that Trump’s been voted out of the office, he didn’t want to leave, and so, he’d, used the power of the masses, to do his bidding for him, and, as the rioters, take over Capitol Hill, the Congress too, U.S. is no longer, a democracy, because for the PAST four years, the people allowed a FACIST DICTATOR (like Mussolini, or Hirohito) to rule them, and now, this FACIST DICTATOR got a sweet taste of what power gave to him, of course he wasn’t, going to, let it go that easily…
