I do I do!! That stopped when Trump became President, didn't it!?? Then, our allies became more like our enemies and our former enemies became more like our allies.

Trump's been attacking our democratic institutions for 2 years. He's the biggest threat to democracy in our lifetime.

Good article Tom, thanks. Who is surprised though?

Here's another article dealing with the same report.

Pathetic

 

“Neither America nor its most powerful allies have ever been perfect models—the United States ranks behind 51 of the 87 other Free countries in Freedom in the World—and their commitment to democratic governance over- seas has always competed with other priorities.”

The erosion of democrtic liberties in the U.S. could trigger a worldwide regression of freedom according to the new report. MIchael Abramowitz said " no president has shown less respect for tenets, norms, or principles. Think for a second about Trumps attacks on our media, our press, and our institutions. Lots to think about!

 

The current U.S. score put us closer to Croatia, than to rivals Germany or the U.K. This is making us great again?? How please......
