We are once again in primary season, as the candidates jockey for endorsement by various parties. For an explanation of the system, read the article here.
While I continue to advise against any dealings with Ajay Bruno (“Ronald Gipper Reagan”) and the AFA, I am very worried about some developments on the loyalist American side. One respected American figure has been attacked and denounced by rival presidential candidates for suggesting a round table approach for the presidency. His proposal would involve representatives from all significant parties, including the AFA.
Now, I don’t agree with the proposal. However, when this respected candidate is branded a traitor for even suggesting communication with the opposition, the alarm bells ring.
Last week we saw suggestions that people entrust the management of their accounts to others over Christmas, in order to defend against the takeover threat from the AFA. As I wrote here, the end does not justify the means. Cheating is cheating. Dictatorial behaviour is always anti-democratic.
There are leading figures in our country who demand obedience and ridicule dissenters. These autocrats drive many initially loyal Americans into the arms of the enemy. To them, the AFA must be defeated by any means necessary, no matter how illegal they may be or how much democratic freedoms are trampled.
We co-operate with measures to protect our country. However, we do not submit to authoritarianism. If popular sentiment is permanently suppressed in the name of security, then the only people who remain secure are the tyrants.
Do not let the AFA take over this country by lies, deceit and cheating. Nevertheless, do not open the door to them by refusing to listen to alternative suggestions and by telling us that we are ignorant and should remain quiet.
