This is a review I did of a book called “How Democracies Die.” And Amazon REFUSED to post it. Apparently, you can only post favorable reviews of books by Trump haters.
I think I can save you $13. This is basically a Trump-hater book thinly disguised as a 9th and 10th grade Civics lesson. At 10% in the authors (without naming him specifically but making it clear who they are describing) call Trump a demagogue. At 12% in they called him a tyrant. Give them credit for temerity, though – they seriously state that republicans should have voted for Hillary Clinton (a shameless criminal who committed treason for selling 1/4th of America’s uranium supply to Russia) for the sake of our “democracy.” (Thank God we are not a democracy, we are a representative republic.)
After rambling through political systems in Europe, Spain, Venezuela, Chile, and Peru they get around to condemning Newt Gingrich, notably one of the great statesmen of the 20th century, for starting the lack of civility in politics. There has been no civility in politics since this nation was formed. Of course, they advocate the impeachment of our president. Lacking that, they feel he should resign. I struggled through this book looking for what the title implies. I never found it. But I did find the authors’ solution to saving our “democracy.” An this is an actual quote.
“President Trump fails politically.: He either loses public support and is not reelected or, more dramatically is impeached or forced to resign. The implosion of Trump’s presidency and the triumph of the anti-Trump resistance energizes the Democrats, who then sweep back into power and reverse Trumps most egregious policies…. This is certainly the future many of us hope for.”
I suppose those egregious policies are the lowest unemployment since 1973, the best economy since Ronald Reagan, and trying to protect Americans from illegal immigrants over running our nation and destroying our culture. If you are a Trump hater you will love this book. If you are a patriotic American, you will recognize it for what it is – democrat propaganda.
