We hear a lot of people saying that democracy in the US is dying……but then we heard the same type of stuff when America elected a black man as president…..so the question remains….is American Democracy Dying?
Newsweek touched on this topic…….
Disagreement between Republicans and Democrats on the Trump administration’s tax policy is a given. But President Donald Trump’s attacks on the pillars of U.S. democracy is something every American should fight, says Brian Klaas, an academic who studies authoritarian regimes.
“I don’t mind that people agree or disagree on tax policy, health care, foreign affairs,” Klaas, a fellow in comparative politics at the London School of Economics, tells Newsweek. “But there are certain aspects of Donald Trump that go outside of what’s acceptable in all Western politics—our basic values.”
