Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree that far too many citizens in nominally 'democratic' countries take their form of government for granted. In the USA we are having a bit of a wake-up call. A significant portion of the electorate is becoming increasingly alarmed that what they thought "couldn't happen here" is well on the way to actually happening. If even a few percent of eligible voters who would likely not have voted in this election are indeed alarmed and turn out to vote to preserve at least the form of our government that will change the outcome.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
