Progressivism has steadily eroded our republic

Gary Kent was right about one thing, our republic is under assault, but not by who he thinks it is. The real culprit is progressivism which began the day of Teddy Roosevelt’s inauguration.

The assault continued under Woodrow Wilson, who hated the Constitution and during whose administration we saw the creation of the Federal Reserve and the Sixteenth, the Seventeenth, the Eighteenth and the Nineteenth Amendments ratified. He was also considered a messiah by some with his Fourteen Points. He used our entry into the Great War to shape the world to his liking after it.

Independent judiciary? FDR tried to pack the Supreme Court in 1937 because they found his New Deal programs to be unconstitutional. He cozied up to Josef Stalin to reshape the post war world at the expense of Winston Churchill.

You can follow the Progressive bouncing ball through LBJ, Nixon, both Bush 41 and Bush 43 and lastly Obama. Central planning, massive government, diminishing rights.

And whose platform was abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, the Green New Deal, socialism and open borders to name just a few things that threaten our republican form of government?

Gary, as in a poker game, I see your William Barr and raise with Eric Holder AND Loretta Lynch.
