USA - Ugly States of America

Playing the Trump game has proved the truism that "Power corrupts. Absolute Power corrupts absolutely". 

The destruction, death and flag-waving in Washington yesterday afternoon, January 6th 2021, was reminiscent of the Reichstag fire in the early 1930s. 

 Adolf Hitler was leading the Nazi Party and had recruited a group of thugs (Stormtroopers) and Hitler used the Reichstag fire incident to further his quest for absolute power. Trump has consistently spouted lies to gain and hold power. He incited hordes of his own stormtroopers to trash the Capitol building, praising that mindless rabble and saying how much he loved them - almost as much as he loves himself.

 I hope that the majority of American citizens wake up to the reality that Democracy is on the verge of being crushed into oblivion by devotees of Hitler and similar ilk.
