The better angels have aways been in a fight with the forces of darkness and destruction all over the world. The better angels lost the fight beginning in Germany in 1933 as Hitler quickly rose to unlimited power.

The industrialists assumed that they could control Hitler and use him for there own benefit. They could not, and so the impetuous ego nut ended up turning Germany into smoking rubble and mountains of death.

Now, many years after America’s bloody Civil War, the better angels are once again in a life and death struggle with the forces of death in this nation lead by the despicable Donald J. Trump.

And now, the Republicans are all in on backing this monster, Trump, thinking, like the German industrialist of the past, that they can control him for holding political power. This, however, is a very problematic assumption. Trump is busy chipping away at gaining complete control of the Justest Department and the FBI. Once they are in his pocket he will be free to do as he pleases, backed by his Nazi Skin Heads and Klan army.

As you can see he doesn’t hide his intensions. He knows that as long as he tells the clueless dark forces that support him whatever it is that they want to hear, he will be free to do all evil he so desires. Unless, yes, unless there are elections in 2020 in which the Democrats win big and pull America away from the pit of hell that it is falling into.
