"The fall of Rome has as many alleged causes as there are historians who have written about it. One common theme, however, was perhaps best expressed by writer and historian Becky Little:
“Imagine a world in which political norms have broken down. Senators use bad faith arguments to block the government from getting anything done. An autocrat rigs elections and gives himself complete control over the government. Welcome to Rome in the first century B.C.E. The republic that had existed for over 400 years had finally hit a crisis it couldn’t overcome. Rome itself wouldn’t fall, but during this period it lost its republic forever.”
So what happens now, when the so-called leaders of the United States of America tell us that our constitutional Republic and the Constitution upon which it is founded are corrupt, racist, and unworthy of our devotion and allegiance?
