Is this democracy in action?

Dec. 20, 2017, the day Democracy died in America.

The first major hit it took was a week ago when three people decided the fate of the internet for 3.25 million people.

Now just over half our Congress voted in a tax plan that over two-thirds of our country disapproved and didn't want.

I ask you how is this considered a democracy?

What happened to "government of the people, for the people, and by the people" that this country was first established for? Well it seems America has come full circle and once again we have " taxation without representation".

Well it's time for a new revolution, people, but instead of grabbing our muskets let's pick up our ballots.

See you at the polls in November!
