4. The idea that the US has ever been a true democracy is a myth we tell ourselves.

Thru most of our history huge groups of Americans, based on sex, color or economic status have been denied the franchise.

As these deficits have been slowly rectified the improvements have been fought the entire time.

And now the white ruling group(which I am one although obviously not on their page) has suddenly realized they face an existential crisis. The fact they will soon me in the minority. In my opinion this is what is driving most of the turmoil we see.

There is really only way they can keep their power and that is to restrict the vote again on non-whites. Itís not going to work. But itís all they have.

I did not expect it this soon. But they are serious about keeping America a white, Christian nation. The AG has said so much.
