Just like Russia, the U.S. has organized crime running the country.

This is no coincidence. As we all know, an organized crime syndicate headed by Putin has been running Russia for years. The Russian people know this. The world knows this. And now thanks to this criminal organization, with nukes...just sayin', the U.S. is now being run by a criminal organization not substantively different than the criminals running Russia.

How did we acquiesce to this so easily and find ourselves mired in this situation when we should have already marched on Washington en masse and taken our government back from these criminals? If Russia proves anything, the longer we wait, the more entrenched they become. I think Cohen's warning about the handover of power not going well if Trump loses the 2020 election was a dire warning. I believe him on this point 100% especially if it means Trump will then be indicted upon leaving office.

I think that this summer has to be the summer we take this country out of the hands of the Republicans and their idiot leader. We need march after march on Washington until we once a again have a democracy we can take pride in.

1. As we know, dictatorships have three essential components

1. Organized Crime
2. Crooked Politicians
3. A Willing Elite

Looks like we are getting to that point. We cannot let these cronies tamper or suppress the vote. All states should be required to have backup paper ballots.

2. Kleptocracies.

Putin may be the biggest, richest kleptocrat alive; that's probably why Dump and the GOP love him.

When the USSR collapsed a decent person in Putin's position might have privatized the Soviet government assets and passed the proceeds on to the new Russian government and the Russian people. Putin privatized the assets, kept a lot of the proceeds for himself, and handed a lot off to his pals--the new oligarchs. Isn't that what Dump and Republicans would love to do in the U.S.?
