So America is officially a dictatorship now?

There doesn't seem to be anyway to stop this. The American people should have taken to the streets in mass ages ago. At this point, Trump is now a dictator/king and Republicans will never face any consequences.

take, it's often 2 steps back at times, but I think the truth will come out, the only question is how fast. There are so many fronts that Trump is having to fight on, the forces of good only need to win a few for the dam to crack.

Don't bother erasing your history; they'd have it if they came for us. The best defense is obviously going to be proactive -- rush to surrender before there's reason. That way hopefully the file will be marked: Estimated threat level: 0.
