Yet another mass shooting, known as the FEDEX shooting, in Indianapolis this time.

Stupidity is Forever!

And the shooter purchased two automatic rifles legally, after police confiscated a shotgun from him, as his mother denounced to the police his troubled mental state.

I’m full of doubts lately. I wonder whether those renegades Republicans, in favor of a coup to democracy, were right.

Are the 74 million Americans who voted for Trump, despite his public dynastic inclinations, right?

Am I wrong in supporting democracy?

Are autocratic forms of Government — like China’s, or Russias’ — better for America?

After all, they seem better for swift decision-making, don’t they?

American-style Democracy seems unable to take decisions in matters sensible to the population, like better gun controls, election systems, the country’s infrastructure, voter suppression avoidance, etc.

We thought it was because of Dems’ Senate’s minority. But now, with the majority reached by the Dems in both chambers, we talk about filibuster as another impediment.(?)

Is the U.S. Democracy a too complicated form of Government?
