The GOP seem to have given up on Democracy - the sacred principle of 1 person 1 vote [View all]

they now completely seem to have given up on American Democracy and have resorted to corrupting the Democratic system by vote rigging, lying, using propaganda like Fox News, being traitors and getting help from foreign adversaries. History has shown that other Democratic countries have failed and given way to authoritarian regimes. I believe the repugs want to take us down that direction.
