Which will prevail? That question will be answered on November 3, 2020, when the American people will have to decide whether they want to live in this democracy or under the rule of a fascist government. That's the day the Democratic candidate runs against Trump, the leader of the forces of fascism that are determined to take down our democracy.

The American people better wake soon and realize that this nation's democracy is under direct attack by these forces of fascism. It couldn't be more clear that they are determined to transform America into a fascist state. That can't be allowed to happen.

Fascism is "a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nationalism above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition."

Characteristics of fascism

Powerful and Continuing Nationalism

Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights

Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause

Supremacy of the Military

Rampant Sexism

Controlled Mass Media

Obsession with National Security

Religion and Government are Intertwined

Corporate Power is Protected
