This set-up has allowed 8 of the 10 richest men in the world to be United States (US) citizens, while, at the same time, the US is the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic. Does that sound like the US is the beacon of democracy?
With all of the problems in the US, the US is sending a lot of money to Ukraine. Shouldn’t we be spending that money at home? Well yes, in a real democracy.
Capitalists and their US Military Industrial Complex stand to make huge profits in that war. Moreover, the US government (USG) is planning yet another war with China over Taiwan, as the USG pretends that her independence is important.
Do you know that the US has had Puerto Rico as her colony for the past 124 years in violation of the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity? The US has also ignored 40 UN resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
The US has never been democratic.
Make America shameless!
