Earlier, I had posted about some similarity between ancient Rome and the United States. It is true that we are in fact on a very similar path. I’d say nearly to the point of allowing one man supreme powder, with a representative body being dissolved.
In case you haven’t noticed, the executive branch of the United States has been consolidating a lot of power. This has been done through executive orders, creation of executive controlled agencies, and expanding the role of the president.
It has gotten to the point that the president has been able to order the execution of an American citizen with zero due process. He has also unilaterally sent troops into conflicts around the world.
He’s also stated several time that if Congress won’t act on a matter, he will. We are essentially looking at a modern day Caesar.
Do yourself a favor and read into Roman history. The parallels are scary. We are in line with Rome, and too many cannot see it.
If we let our nation go this path, we are doomed to fail. Wake up or history will repeat.
