Kinda presumptive subby.
This banana is actually voicing treasonous intent.

The radical left is burning down America because they still haven't accepted the results of the 2016 election and failed in their coup attempt last year.  It is only Trump's strong belief in democracy that is keeping us from becoming a banana republic.

No.

No one overseas is propping up an unpopular leader who is exploiting us with slave labor standards to grow agricultural products.

That is purely US companies doing that at the moment because Dollar Uber Alles.

I'd argue that we're too big to be a banana republic; that is, no one national or business interest is overthrowing our government to guarantee cheap produce exports.

We are approaching post-collapse failed state status, though, inasmuch as we are no longer interested in building physical or political infrastructure so much as being concerned with whether we should fight to make the decay a little slower or loot as much as possible before its all gone.

Yes, the guy who lost the popular vote by 3 million votes, has stated his intention to stay in office no matter what the people say, has repeatedly indicated that he would like to unconstitutionally run for a third term, and represents a party who hasn't represented an actual majority of Americans in 16 years, minimum, is totally a fan of democracy.

That the Wal-mart brand of patriotic wear is called 'Faded Glory' is a bit too on the nose.

Not American heads of state, silly goose. They'll overthrow other democracies (like Allende's in Chile) but no American ones.

Unless the theories of the Kennedy assassination are true.

Impeachment is not a coup, you disingenuous hack.

This country is supposed to operated by the rule of law and the dumb schmuck in the driver's seat does something almost every single gotdamned day that is impeachable.

The "radical left" is tired of black and brown bodies being used and abused. The radical left is tired of the people being the afterthought in caring for the least of these; instead the corporation and businesses suck at the teat of government, filling their own coffers with our hard earned tax dollars while we get the crumbs while our infrastructure crumbles and people are dying every single day from a virus that could have been prevented had we acted swiftly.

His "strong belief" will be that he whines line the farking little baby that he is when we soundly boot his ass from office. He has done NOTHING to have people believe in the election and abide by the result. He sows chaos. And he is a rotten narcissist who cares only about himself and NO ONE ELSE.

Seriously, fark you.

The Federal Government is what will continue to collapse.. eventually it'll just be the military. No Social Security, in fact no federal agencies in any way..

Best part about watching your country flail away into a banana republic is "patriots" like yourself cheering because you think your team is winning.

The stadium is on fire and the rest of the world is either tired of shouting warnings that fall on deaf ears (your former "allies"), or are waiting for the collapse so they can pick through the rubble (Russia, China).

Keep cheering.  And get more guns.  Lots of guns.  That'll help your situation move faster.
