American Democracy: Is It Broken?
What is democracy in America today? Is it broken?
Vote. Vote. Vote. Election is an important factor. Why? Democracy. What is democracy meant to you? In the past, democracy in America used to be respected. Now today’s democracy in America, it’s getting worse and broken. It is truly a constitutional crisis, ripping up United States Constitution, ignoring the respect of law, for example, a picture of Trump ripping up the U.S. Constitution in the root of the rich money. Federal laws were violated, bribery, and ignoring legal jeopardy.
What is democracy? The author, Alexis de Tocqueville wrote a book, “Democracy in America”, is a large book, 500+ pages, understanding the depth of democracy, the quality of life, this book is highly recommended to read. I feel that it is important to share this information, where I have not seen anyone in the Deaf community discuss about this topic.
The Washington Post published recently,
“Trump is supposed to be preparing to hand over power. Will the government be ready?”
where it discusses under federal law, a President must report to Congress on pre-election presidential transition preparations twice: once at six months ahead and again at three months near before the election. We’ve passed the six months mark already. Nothing has happened.
What does it meant to you about that? Let’s take a look at Alexis de Tocqueville’s quote:
“The surface of American society is covered with a layer of democratic paint, but from time to time one can see the old aristocratic colours breaking through.”
