Opinion: To drink a Coke or not to drink a Coke, that is the question…

Today the reactions to the new voter laws in the State of Georgia is happening. Rightfully so. It is a need to address and take account of the awful and disenfranchising electoral laws the Republican Party have signed into law. The act of Governor Brian Kemp and his fellow Republican Representatives. They have all deliberately done this and with intent of making it harder for fellow citizens to cast their ballot and vote. That is for the simple reason. The less voters means more likely a Republican majority. Therefore, it is winning strategy to make it harder for the general public to vote.

Now… what is tragic about the politics in America at the moment. Is that instead of looking at the initial issue. The progressive and the ones who wants voters to show up is going up against the businesses in Atlanta, Georgia. The ones who has a base there and the ones who funnel money through the political system. A system that the Democratic Party and the Republican Party is fine with in the days of sunshine, but speaks ill of in the days of rain.

This week has been a storm and been heavy rain. The raindrops are clearly hitting hard and not so easily to get to the storm-drain. Nevertheless, the ideals should be to revise the system. Get new legislation to counter this one or repeal the acts that disenfranchise voters in Georgia. That should be the focus. The focus should be on the ideals and integrity of the ballot, which John Lewis stood for and fought for all his life.

Not battle the beverages industry and one of its giants Coca-Cola Company. Yes, the giant international beverage company has its sins to answer for. They have their ills and its profit motive at any given time. However, it isn’t the bottles of Coke fault for the voters law. Neither is it in the interest of a bottling and beverages company to stop people from voting. Their best interests is to get people hooked on their drink and purchase more of bottles next time they pass by a Wall-Mart.

That is why politics in the United States have gone bonkers. Yes, the politicians are screwed by lobbyist and secretive PAC-Money, which funds their massive and expensive campaigns. Still, in the middle of that. That doesn’t mean they are responsible for the ills and evil, which occurs now and then. Right now that’s all on Governor Kemp and his Republican comrades.

A bottle of Coke will not solve this. Neither will a bottle of Pepsi. Heck, no sort of drink will juice up the veins of democracy. Not the Speakeasies or the roaring 1920s will make fudge about it either. Coca-Cola isn’t the company to solve or in the dominion to do so. Yes, they can stop giving money to the Republican Party, but that they will only cease for a hot-minute and return when they need favourable legislation. As long as the dark-money and PAC money can fund politicians. The companies will return and secure results on their “investments”.

The activists shouldn’t go for a boycott and stop drinking Coke. That is a short-term and a losing strategy. Who will win? The one with billions in the bank and can sustain a hit or the few consumers with a moral obligation? I think the guy with the biggest bank and there are so many who don’t care. Those folks will drink Coke regardless.

That is why, the ones who wants change and make a difference. Call the legislators. Email them like crazy. Make their team and staff go nuts over all the feedback. Make the legislators of State of Georgia packed with messages, faxes or whatever they get memo home. That what they was wrong and they need to revise it.

The GOP and the Governor will not care if you stop drinking Coke. They will not give a damn. You are the ones who losing your beverage. It is not difference then when Republican activists burns their Nike’s or destroyed their coffee-maker. In some ways … its the same thing and neither was winning.

The activists and the ones calling for this. Better think ahead. The Democrats who are fearing for the ballots and voters of Georgia. Better do “Good Trouble”. What they are doing is symbolic hogwash. This is changing their Tinder Profile and thinking their soulmate will love that you were drinking Pepsi instead of Coke. Sorry brother, but that’s not it and that wasn’t the reason why the person swiped your way.

Let’s be clear. You can stop drinking coke, but that will not save democracy. You can boycott Coke, but that not resolve the issues either. What you can do and what you should do. Is to show civil disobedience and call for changes in legislation. Both in Georgia and in the Federal Law. So, that dark-money cannot run rampant behind closed chambers and decide what lawmakers do. Secondly, you can pressure state legislatures to actually vote for laws that makes it easier to vote and not what they did this week. That is what you should do. Not stop sipping Coke.

That means visible protests in the streets. Sponsoring billboards, sending letters, emails and other texts to legislators and by all means be vocal about the cause. Nevertheless, the idea of stopping to drink a beverage. Well… that is futile and not doing anyone any damage. Coke will not be hurt and their bottom-line will not even feel the sting.

It is a time for everything, but boycotting Coke over voting legislation is redundant and a foolish enterprise. Especially, when there are so many other avenues where the ones in power would fear you and would feel your presence. They are not fearing what your drinking in your living-room and at your kitchen. No, they are fearing your feet stomping in the streets and your voices cracking close to their chambers of power. That is why they take away your access to vote in the first place. Peace.

State of Georgia: Governor Kemp disfranchise own citizens with new election law

My dear friends: Your vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have to create a more perfect union.”John Lewis (2012 speech in Charlotte, North Carolina)

Republican Governor Brian Kemp. The State of Georgia Governor since 2018. He was the Secretary of State before running for Governor for the Republican Party. In the role as Secretary of State. He was indirectly co-ordinating the polls and the elections of his own candidacy. That is the sort of man Kemp is.

Therefore, after losing both Senate seats in the recent elections in January 2021. It was inevitable for the Republican Party in Georgia to change the rules ahead of the next election. The Republicans have no senator from Georgia. The State of Georgia have turned more and more blue. That has hurt the pride of the GOP and they need to do something.

Am I surprised by this? No, was this shocking? Hell no. The Republican Party and their allies are gerrymandering like insane if they are allowed. The GOP will do whatever they can to bar people from voting. Especially if these parts of the community is most likely voting for other parties. The GOP will do what they can to make it harder to vote or make it such a hassle. If the GOP get lower voter-turn-out. That is a win for them and they will most likely get their representative in.

That’s why its not insane that its happens. Especially, when the Democratic Party was able to flip Georgia and get both Senators. What is striking is that they are doing it in Georgia. Where the late Representative John Lewis came from and fought all his life for a revised Voting Rights Act.. In a manner, which would strengthen the rights and ease the boundaries for the voters to actually vote. The opposite of what Kemp has done lately.

If Kemp and other guys would honour the legacy of John Lewis. They would have made it easier to vote and also create more civic education on the value of doing so. Instead, they are pissing on his legacy and shitting on his grave. They are doing the opposite of what Lewis fought for. Just because the likes of Stacey Abrahams is able to get the public behind her and get new voters in.

We know that is the reason for this. State of Georgia is a place where the Republican’s doesn’t value the vote. Heck, they don’t want the vote or voters. They rather see less people show-up and they are automatically getting their folks elected. Because, the majority will struggle to vote. Standing in lines for hours and not easing restrictions for the ballots. If these Republicans believed in the ballot and voting in general. They would have opened the gates, but instead they are sealing of the doors and hoping nobody is looking.

What is also is seeing how easily someone of the stature of Lewis can be forgotten this quickly. How the State Representatives rather safe-guard their own offices, then actually believing in what Lewis fought for. That shows so perfectly well by all the new procedures for the next election. Which is the incumbents and the ability for the Republicans to still get a majority. This is why they did this.

The GOP in Georgia didn’t do this because they cares for democracy or everyone’s right to participate in elections. No, they are doing this to make it harder to vote. It is easier to buy a gun or do other things than voting in the state. That is because, one thing is a priority and the other is an issue, which the ones in power don’t want you to have. If they didn’t fear the ballot and the power of it. They wouldn’t have made it so hard to cast it.

Brian Kemp and his likes fear the public. Kemp and his allies are worried about their sentiment and their will. If he was loved by them and had their support. He wouldn’t have signed these things into law. However, he has done so to hopefully save his own office. That is the mere reality here. Because, the Governor cannot run the election like he did in 2018.

What is the saddest thing. It is happening in the state of the great late Representative Lewis who stood for the stark opposite and went into “good trouble” fighting for it. However, that fight has to continue, because the ones in power now. Clearly doesn’t value the integrity or the trust of the public in regards to Democracy. Because, if they cared that… they wouldn’t have done this and made this happen. Peace.

State of Georgia: The Senate seats goes to the Democrats

The Special Elections in 2021 have gone to the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party candidates Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff. These two beat the Republican candidates. What is striking about these two candidates. They have not only won the seats, but they have flipped the Senate. That is a big deal so in 2021 the Biden administration have the House, Senate and the Presidency. Therefore, the Republican Party cannot block nominations or laws through before the midterms at earliest.

What I enjoy about this is that these two are connected to the late John Lewis. Warnock was the pastor of Lewis and Ossoff was a previous intern of the late Georgian Congressman. That is really great to see the folks around the civil rights hero is still roaming in the August house of Washington D.C.

In previous elections the voter suppression and rigging has ensured the Republican majority in Georgia. Brian Kemp for instance is the governor of Georgia was running his own government and securing his own election as the Secretary of State. Therefore, the state has been before a hot-seat for electoral nonsense. However, in this special election it has been all genuine and the same happened in November 2020 run-off as well. Since there is no proof and you don’t have a Kemp who is siding with himself.

Stacey Abrahams, the person who was tricked and rigged out of the election in 2018. Has now shown her leadership has values. She has the capacity to get new voters and bring attention to the Democratic Party cause in Georgia. Stacey is the other hero in Georgia. Abrahams should get credit for the turn of events. Where there has been a massive shift and she has been able to gain more voters. Getting the people mobilized to vote in districts and such. That wouldn’t have happen at the same level if she didn’t do what she did. Therefore, Abrahams needs her credit here.

Today is a good day, but now the work starting. Now the democrats can control all chambers and rehash the state of America. They can if they want to change the laws and make it better. After 4 years of Trumpism and Corporate Socialism. The Democrats can actually make a difference and be there for the citizens. They can also have a substantial and enforce proper foreign policies. Not only do things because donors or American businesses will profit for it. Therefore, the State of Georgia election can have ripple effect. That is if they use it properly.

Hopefully, these Senators have been inspired by John Lewis and will continue his work. Also continue on the positive progression that they have had during the campaigns. These folks also won because Trump himself wasted an opportunity and have targeted the state in a selfish angle. An angle where he wanted to overturn certified Presidential Election of 2020. So, that he could win and also get Republican’s not to trust the process. Therefore, they have gone against themselves, which is really unique and that did backfire.

State of Georgia have delivered. Hopefully these two Senators can make a vast difference. They can challenge and represent the goodness of the New South. They can resist the corporate democrats and be progressive. That is what we can hope for. That’s what the likes of me hopes for.

Georgia should be proud. They have done something amazing and nobody can take that away from them. Acknowledge the ones turning a state blue from red. That is something great. Peace.

State of Georgia: Kemp resigns, but after claiming victory!

Not strange that State Secretary and responsible for the election won the Governor race in the State of Georgia. The wolf shouldn’t look over the hen-house. There are already reports that Brian Kemp barred and voter suppressed 700,000 voters, plus of all the technical difficulties, the lack of ballots and all the brazen disregard for the voters in vital districts in the state. This just shows what sort of man Kemp is.

That Stacey Abrams had not a chance, she was a pawn in the game of Kemp. That is why he resigned today. While Abrams doesn’t accept to loose this one. That is not strange, as the wolf has used all tricks to win. If he feels this is how he needs to win, he really is a despicable man, who doesn’t even respect the people he supposed to govern.

He will be hated thief in power. A man who had to cheat, trick and run the elections to be able to be a viable candidate. Kemp couldn’t even win a fair fight, he couldn’t even be a gentleman and let someone else run this election. But he knew that if he didn’t use his office and his position. He would never become Governor of Georgia.

This is Banana Republic class, as he resigns today with a letter to Nathan Deal. This was to establish to the public, that he was switching offices. Because he is blatantly a special candidate, because this what is known by the Secretary of State in Georgia:

The Office of the Secretary of State coordinates and monitors all election activity: this includes voter registration; municipal, state, county, and federal elections; campaign finance disclosure for state and federal candidates and political action committees; and certification of election results. The Georgia State Capitol office also is responsible for certifying the qualification of candidates and the preparation of ballots and election forms and materials. As a result of legislation passed by the Georgia General Assembly in 2001, the office is responsible for removing the names of deceased electors from the voter registration lists statewide. The secretary chairs the State Election Board, which investigates election fraud and enforces state election law. As part of an effort to modernize state election procedures, the Twenty-first Century Voting Commission and the secretary of state’s office worked to establish a statewide uniform election system, which was implemented for the first time in November 2002” (Ballotpedia – ‘Georgia Secretary of State’).

Here is my problem with Kemp, he has problematic statements and acts during the campaign as a candidate. But to top that off, he decided who was on the voter lists and who was accepted as candidates, while he was running. He monitored the whole election activity, while he was a candidate himself, he ensured to see all finance disclosures and also the one who was in-charge of certifying election results. Therefore, he could ensure and did so, with purging election lists, he secured lacking material and lacking machines to work in vital districts in the State.

That is why, he should have resigned long before running as candidate. It should be illegal for a whole a wolf to run the hen-house. He will take the hens when nobody is watching and that is what Kemp has done. It is hard to believe that these results are eligible or legit. As Kemp has done his part behind the scenes and on stage. He has taken the gubernatorial seat, this he has done with unfair ways.

No one should ever run the elections and be a candidate at the same time. The same office that is running elections, should not proclaim someone from their winning. Not if it is free and fair elections. If they want to be a Banana Republic. Than, continue with this charade, but everyone should know that this is nonsense.

Kemp is to late to resign today. He should have done it a long time ago. Before being allowed to run as a candidate. He shouldn’t have run the shop and be the one running at the same time. Sorry, that is not how the world supposed to work. Even if Life of Brian thinks so. Peace.

State of Georgia: Where one man was a Candidate and tally General at the same time!

You know something is off, when the same guy running for governor, also have the power and administer the polls itself. This was Brian Kemp of the Georgia State, who happen to run on the ballot and administer the polls and counting of the polls. If you thought they would be fair or free, think again.

This is state was a Banana Republic yesterday, where people was purged of the voter rolls, where the lack of equipment and disenfranchised voters by the dozens. If I were Brian Kemp, I would have stepped down a long time ago as the state official of the Midterm Elections. As the double play and double role played to his advantage. No matter who had gone against him, he would have put up the guards and ensured victory.

That the Secretary of State Kemp ensured this and made the polls has be a deliberate act. As the state delivered to several poll stations late ballots, other machines with no cords and so on. With this sort of actions. You just know that the game been rigged. There is no joke, there is no laugh, this is the reason why you need foreign Election Observer Missions from EU/AU/ASEAN,USAN and Commonwealth. To secure the legitimacy and also if the elections is credible.

The first stop, should be that the man who is in-charge of the elections shouldn’t be allowed to run in the polls. It doesn’t matter, which party the man represents or align with. It is matter of principals and ethical values. That should matter, if you want to show progress and be a democracy.

This here could be taken out of any questionable election within the last 5 years on other continents, where the Electoral Commission has rigged in favour of the ruling party and made ways to ensure their candidates victory. There is no difference on George State and several banana republic abroad.

Let me say it again, it wouldn’t matter if Mother Theresa, Mahatma Ghandi or Jesus incarnated raced against Kemp in Georgia, yesterday. Because, he could sway, gerrymandering and secure the ballots in his favour. By securing the lack of polling stations is certain districts and also ensure that his base was covered. That is clearly the memo from yesterday too. As there was enough signs of foul play to be heard off.

I wish it was differently and a fair fight, but when your racing against the guy, whose running the show. It is bound to fail. Peace.

Dropping some side-notes on the 15 Years Anniversary of T.I.’s Trap Muzik!

Listen pops

Want to know a little more about rap?

First rule if it’s real

It ain’t just a record deal

It’s a trap” – T.I. – Trap Muzik (2003),

Today, its 15 years ago since the T.I. or Clifford Harris second album was released. That was on the date of 19th August 2003. This was the first album I heard from the rapper and lyricist. Before this, he had dropped an album on Arista, “I’m Serious” but that hadn’t been successful. This was the launch of his career and also, where people got to now of the Trap and the Grand Hustle. That was after he had a series of Mixtapes, which gave way to this album.

This was the album that really opened my eyes for him as an artist. I will take some of the notable lyrics from the album. As there was some bars, that if you haven’t heard is worth to remember. As the statement it made when it was released.

It’s a war going on and they killing for nothing

We were in denial all awhile they where flicking the buttons

I’d rather be dying for something instead of living for nothing

End of discussion” – T.I. – No More Talk (2003).

If that isn’t social commentary and worthy of a shout out nothing is. This is a proof, that the 22 year old rapper, even back then wrote social commentary and about the struggles of the community. Not just slanging dope over banging beats.

And the cars been parked but the rims keep moving

Sign pictures, buy an onion of good and throw the deuces

Cause I ain’t Hollywood, I come from the hood, I’m used to it” – T.I. – 24’s (2003).

If you ever heard a banging video game song for a car game. This song, the 24’s was made for that. The first car riding song. An it was a hit. This one really introduced to plenty a rims and the spinners. Not all of us knew about that cultural aspect from the Southern part of the United States.

“But why the rubber band?”

It representing the struggle man!” – T.I. – Rubberband Man (2003).

This single was the one that first got played on the music TV channels that I picked up. You really felt the beat and at the same time. I got to know David Banner. Therefore, this track alone. Has shown both of them to me. This was really the jam from the album.

I’m the king cause I said it and I mean that shit” – T.I. – Kingofdasouth (2003).

This song and the title of calling himself the King of the South. Which created lots of beef, one that spawn off with Lil Flip. Someone will remember that, someone will not. This was before the mixtape of Down with the King and the “Welcome Back” one. But that one is whole another story.

Now, I have taken my favorite bars and also briefly commented on this album from one of my favorite artists. T.I. or T.I.P. who is still relevant. It is strange to think that its already 15 years since this was released. Peace.

USA: EPA Acting Deputy Adminstrator E-Mail – “Agency’s Workforce Shaping through Voluntary Early Retirement and Separation Incentive Payment Authorities (VERA/VSIP) – (01.06.2017)

U.S. House of Rep. Smith’s got the Honest ACT passed, that regulates EPA opportunity to spread information!

“The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.”Garry Kasparov

Welcome to the Banana Republic, the United States of America (USA), the Trump Administration has a new golden child and has to stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that has to be silenced. The EPA under Scott Pruitt. The Environment and Climate Change is lie under the Trump regime, that is myth that the environment gets destroyed or worsen by industry or mineral extraction. Still, they have to make sure that the EPA doesn’t explain the environmental regulations without any scientific evidence. It has to be tested and retested the narratives, as the EPA should not question the need for free release of CO2 or any other damaging gas that can worsen the sky, or the after effects of crude-oil pipelines and the damage of soil in the areas after fracking.

Well, take a look at the Lamar Smith proposal that get through and passed in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday:

To prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from proposing, finalizing, or disseminating regulations or assessments based upon science that is not transparent or reproducible” (…) “The Administrator shall not propose, finalize, or disseminate a covered action unless all scientific and technical information relied on to support such covered action is” (…) “publicly available online in a manner that is sufficient for independent analysis and substantial reproduction of research results, except that any personally identifiable information, trade secrets, or commercial or financial information obtained from a person and privileged or confidential, shall be redacted prior to public availability” (H.R. 1430, 2017).

Representative Lamar Smith the man behind the bill, who has a magical fascination with silencing and stopping the EPA, as he is from San Antonio, Texas and Republican, surely if somebody would have remembered what sort of greatness, he showed in February:

On Tuesday, Smith held a hearing titled “Making the E.P.A. Great Again.” From the list of witnesses, it was clear that Smith was not, however, interested in improving the E.P.A.—in fact, just the reverse. One of the witnesses was a lobbyist for the coal industry, another a lobbyist for the chemical industry. In a display of hypocrisy so blatant it could have been hilarious, but wasn’t, Smith used his opening statement to rail against “conflicts of interest” at the E.P.A. The agency, he complained, depended on the expertise of scientists to whom it sometimes also awards research grants. His proposed solution to this problem? To stack the E.P.A.’s science advisory board with scientists who work for regulated industries” (Kolbert, 2017).

So Rep. Smith has no issues listening to the Coal, Chemical and Oil industry, if it benefits them at a U.S. House hearing on making EPA great again, like the ones who wants to pollute and drop hazard into the environment for a buck is the ones to listen to. Shows the lack of thinking and integrity that is in the Washington D.C. right now and is accepted by the Trump Administration. Where the businesses are more important nature and the future, where the kids of Trump has to live in wasteland and in narrow future of damaged rivers, creeks and polluted air.

The donors for the 2015-2016 Campaign for the U.S. House Representative for Texas and parts of Committee for Science, Space and Technology, those we’re $95,050 from Oil and Gas, either as PACs or individuals, other important donors for the campaign of Smith we’re Nustar Energy, AT&T, Boeing Co., Koch Industries and Marathon Petroleum (Check Opensecrets.org).

So, the man who has massive support for his elections and campaigns was supported through business who needs to extract their resources and has to pollute to do so. It could seem that they scratched an itch for the Representative and when he was elected he scratched an itch for them. Instead of direct brown envelopes directly into the pocket of the representative, they paid for his campaign and his viable campaign in Texas.

Now that he has a place on the Committee for Science, Space and Technology, there he can change legislation that fits Nustar, AT&T, Boeing Co., Koch Industries and Marathon Petroleum, as they will not have any sort of information that cannot be verified by generous study. They have been silenced and cannot question climate change or even the implication of pollution or environmental damages by industry, as the Honest ACT, who is made to stop certain information from getting into public.

So it it good to know that the EPA sentiment is old:

But I don’t know whether Americans want the EPA and Congress to be honest. You say, “What do you mean, Williams?” There are numerous laws, restrictions and regulations based upon the EPA’s fraudulent report on secondhand tobacco smoke. How many Americans do you think would say, “Hey, now that we know that EPA 1992 report was a fraud, let’s repeal all those laws and regulations based upon it”? I’m guessing most would say, “I don’t like the smell of cigarettes and if it takes government fraud and duping the public to get rid of it, so be it.” (Williams, 1999).

So there are surely many who has hard feelings against the EPA and their practices, but they should still wonder if it is wise to stop the EPA. They might get wealth to buy cars, but nature is not something that returns after you have used it and extracted the minerals. There are so many places destroyed by industry and not habitable, so much touched nature that will not come back after oil industry and other industry has used their tools. Together with the knowledge of pollution, there are invisible particles that might hurt mother nature on the long run, but that doesn’t Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump or Lamar Smith. Peace.

Opinion: Eric Trump are right, under the Trump Administration, the US is becoming a “Third World State”!

It’s really sad that we’re in an environment where tax returns are leaked by whoever it may be” (…) “Just think about it. Think about how dangerous that is, how third world that is on a practice that happened. When personal information is put out by people for political agendas. As a civilian, it’s actually scaryEric Trump on Fox News (Tani, 2017).

It is just one of these days where the sons of President Donald Trump speaks their mind and hits the nail. The nail is in the coffin, with the knowledge of the plans to make the republic less attractive, less business-friendly, more lassiez-faire and more focused on army than on progressive financial instruments and regulation to create growth. Trump Administration is busy with deporting millions, building a wall and starting trade-wars. The U.S. Government does not need to be transparent or accountable while doing so. Especially, not in the minds of one of his sons. That claims something unique and special. I have claimed in the near past that under President Trump, the U.S. Government could turn the Republic into a Banana Republic, a sort of style government that could be described by others as a third world one. Therefore, let the dictionary explain that!

Eric Trump needs a definition of the Third World:

1: a group of nations especially in Africa and Asia not aligned with either the Communist or the non-Communist blocs” (…) “2: an aggregate of minority groups within a larger predominant culture” (…) “3: the aggregate of the underdeveloped nations of the world” (Merriam-Webster).

So the United States can itself soon be fitted, not that it is an Asian or African nation, neither Communist, but still it is getting underdeveloped by the way the financial framework and industry is set-up under the Trump Administration. Where the Industry and Financial industry has the Administration by the balls and no eager of taking care of nature or the resources, except for eating the profits without giving anything back to the Republic. Just like the Oil Industry in Nigeria or in Ghana. The same as the mining and mineral industry in the Democratic Republic of Congo. So the United States under President Trump, will be similar. Eric Trump is not so far off, just not the way he thought he would be.

Another man’s vision:

This brings about complete dysfunction. It makes everything — economy, politics, roads, bridges, police, school — broken and shitty. Those who can leave do. Making it worse. This leads to more extremism, and more corruption, and more cynicism. And sometimes extreme violence. Because the other side becomes evil” (…) “The US has been shifting towards all four of these over the last 30 years, with inequality leading the way. We are more divided, economically and socially, then we have ever been (we are less divided racially. But only marginally so.)” (Arnade, 2016).

So when you have a system on the brink of collapse, a wealthy elite eating of the government plate and settling score to not pay their bills to the public, while the citizens and middle-class cannot build a steady life or afforded needed services, you know there are something wrong with the system and the state. That makes the Eric Trump words so right, that United States is becoming more like a third world country, with a sophisticated army, but cannot afford health care, schools or infrastructure. Just like the countries President Trump doesn’t want to affiliate with or been seen with. Since him and his advisor Bannon are supposed to be superior, and like a dictator in a Third World country, he believes he is always right and isn’t wrong.

So one smudge of evidence of his fathers Tax Returns from 2005 leaked to MSNBC Rachel Maddow, proves the realization of the state, that the Trump Administration would dislike. As they are not capping the debt, neither taking into account their ideas of taxation and tax-releases, as much as their will to deregularte industry and financial institutions. Therefore, leading the space of more expenses and negative environmental policies, that damage earth and only gains profit for a slim elite. Just like a Third World Country.

This is degrading for the United States, but the harsh truth, the ideas and policies in the making, the killing of health insurance, the idea of building the giant nuclear silos, while not paying for food for the starving. Proves that the U.S. Government are no closer to countries it does not want to be affiliated with, but still can be consider to be assimilated with. President Trump and his administration is clearly not wishing to be differing from chauvinistically taking charge and not caring what effect it has. Clearly, it is only his image that matter, just like any big-man and authoritarian leader.

So, soon we can say that the United States is underdeveloped and need aid, as their waters are daft, the industry is lacking technology, the roads are more potholes than tarmac, the bridges are weak, their railways not working and often not trusted. The United States has soon more expensive foreign imported goods, than what they produce and is losing money on their export of cash crops as soya and other grain. Therefore, President Trump leading his Republic to become underdeveloped or become a Third World Country.
