Anything involuntary is tyrannical by default.

While the Republicans have power why are they not restricting executive power? Not like it would be hard to convince the Democrats to limit Trump’s power.

It beyond the need for them to keep one single president in office though, they can stay tyrannical with every newly elected president! American people are too dumb and 'drunk' at the wheel, to recognize whats going on, or to do anything about it, we are too concerned with 'safety and security' LOL!

Not enough checks and balances were done for the feds to say "Take a hike!" to Disney-Fox, Comcast-NBCUniversal, and AT&T/WarnerMedia mergers.

The federal government (and I mean the deep state not President Trump personally) already IS tyrannical.

It isn't the Trump admin that is to blame.


It is the elites, the industrial-military complex, the Department of Justice (what a joke that name is now) and the FBI snakes at the top who decided they were above the law. Those who decided that rules don't apply to them equally.



THEY are the tyrants, hence a tyrannical government.

The entire government in the US, be it local, county, State and or federal is tyrannical and has been so starting clear back to within 100 years of the formation of this once great nation. No, I am NOT advocating slavery nor am I suggesting that women shouldn't have equal rights. What I am saying is there isn't any aspect of how we, Americans, choose to live our lives that isn't dictated in one form or another by some tyrannical bastards in government.

If a person's action or inaction does not encroach upon the natural rights or property of another person, it should be no one's business except that individual's on what they do or don't do. Sadly, that isn't what we get in the US. I don't care if the statism comes from the left or the right, I want no part of it. This tyrannical statism isn't authorized by the US Constitution nor is it authorized by any of the State's Constitutions yet it most certainly is what we get shoved down our throats every single day. There isn't a single aspect of how each of us lives or chooses to live that isn't somehow regulated, telling us what we can or cannot do... not a single aspect. How is that not tyrannical?
