This deceitful, anti-democratic agenda seems to be working beautifully as several GOP controlled governorships and legislatures have enacted voter suppression legislation that, if allowed to be fully put into effect, will disenfranchise millions of voters in several key swing states because they do not have photo ID's, typically drivers' licenses. The nations of the world are witnessing the emergence of the real America as they watch the rapid dissolution of its famed democracy.

 

This assembled evidence represents concrete proof of how this country has now gained a solid reputation as one whose actions and behavior are exactly the opposite of those that it tries to project to the world. "It's not what you say, it's what you do." Or as some might put it, "America talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk." The world sees America for what it is, for what it has now become; a nation that still attempts to portray itself as the symbol of human rights, freedom and democracy, but one that has now forfeited all rights to that distinction.
