'The warning signs are already here. Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin Page demonstrated in an exhaustive analysis of the difference between what most Americans want their politicians to do legislatively, versus what American politicians actually do! This week McConnell confirmed that Congress is using the huge deficits created by the tax cuts as an excuse to destroy “entitlement” programs. These programs, along with free public education and progressive taxation, are the core drivers and maintainers of the American middle class. History shows that without a strong middle class, democracy itself collapses ; Fascism is the next step down a long & terrible road to kneecap institutions that support the American middle class. The GOP controlled Congress is shifting both income and political power away from voters, toward billionaires & transnational corporations.'
