We are risking the Democrat Party seizing full control of our federal government, education, courts, and press


by Daniel Baranowski, America Outloud:

On September 18, 1787, A lady asked Dr. Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got a Republic or a Monarchy – A Republic, replied the Doctor, if you can keep it.”

I believe that if we are to keep our Republic, we must amend our Constitution or face the existential threat of becoming an autocratically controlled one-party system ruled by Socialists at best or Marxists at worst. To stop our slide toward totalitarianism, we must act now to reclaim the people’s power over our federal government before that power slips away, forever out of our reach.


Tyranny comes in many forms and by many routes. President Joe Biden exemplified one such way in his State of the Union (SOTU) speech this past week. His speech wasn’t a glad tiding of how well the nation is doing or what America aspires to accomplish over the next year. Instead, it was a darkside’s tale of what the Democratic Party intends to do to Americans who have fallen out of favor with the administration and how the President will run our international borders and foreign entanglements.

Perhaps, like me, you watched Joe Biden’s SOTU speech last Thursday and came away with a different take. It’s possible. For me, I thought this rant was the most vapid, hateful, hostile, divisive, invective, and tyrannical speech ever delivered by anyone, much less the President of the United States, at that podium in the House of Representatives Chamber. Within the first two minutes of Biden’s opening, I couldn’t help but think of the title of Mark R. Levine’s most recent New York Times best-selling book, “The Democrat Party Hates America.”

For anyone tuning into this speech late, it must have appeared that Joe Biden was declaring war against every Conservative, Republican, Moderate Democrat, and Independent who disagreed with any of his policies, domestic and foreign. Either that, or that Biden had stroked out or, as they say, gone “mental.”

Even more than the caustic and commanding words in Biden’s 67-minute speech, his shouting, spittle-laced, snarky delivery, described by the progressively-bent Free Press as “fiery,” was beyond insulting, disgusting, and so far out-of-bounds that referee-thrown red flags should have buried the podium.

Every sentence and every paragraph of his speech reeked of authoritarianism and American Marxism. When 79% of Americans report to pollsters that America is going in the wrong direction or that Americans are dissatisfied with the nation’s direction, they speak about a swiftly downward spiral led by Joe Biden and his so-called Progressive Democrats. I cannot remember such a level of near-universal angst about our shining city on a hill.

Is it any wonder Americans’ opinions about politicians and politics are increasingly harsh and unrelentingly hostile? And suppose Joe Biden’s SOTU was a seminal point about the state of politics in America. In that case, the future looks even bleaker than any time in the past except for the pending American Civil War.

The Pew Research Center recently reported that nearly two-thirds (65%) of Americans say they “always or often feel exhausted when thinking about politics. Fifty-five (55%) feel angry. By contrast, only ten percent (10%) say “they always or often feel hopeful about politics,” and only four percent (4%) are excited. Too bad Pew Research didn’t poll those who watched Joe Biden’s fourth SOTU speech. Talk about feeling exhausted and angry about our politics.
