      Democracy is about means, not ends. If we all agreed on the ends (such as whether to build a wall along the Mexican border) there’d be no need for democracy.

      But of course we don’t agree, which is why the means by which we resolve our differences are so important. Those means include a constitution, a system of government based on the rule of law, and an independent judiciary.

      A dictatorship, by contrast, is only about ends. Those ends are the goals of the dictator – at a minimum, preserving and accumulating personal power. To achieve those ends, a dictator will use any means necessary.

      which law? Droning civilians, torturing whistle blowers stealng peoples homes, protecting all bankster criminals of giving 13 months of leisure prison to a renowned pedophile. Our government is based on power of corporate corruption. Our woes did not begin when Trump took office and will not end if Trump is impeached.

      Never expect different result by following the previous steps

      Trump is not the Dictator… This is:
