Business Insider
The GOP has proven to be an even 'greater threat' to US democracy than Trump in 2021, experts warn.

Democracy experts are sounding the alarm.

Republican-led legislatures nationwide are taking extraordinary steps to restrict voting.

"The Republican party has proven to be a greater threat than Trump," one expert told Insider.

By the time Donald Trump left the White House, it was widely agreed upon that he was the most anti-democratic president in modern US history. He exhibited an unparalleled disdain for democratic institutions during his four years in power, and topped it all off by refusing to accept the legitimate results of the 2020 election and provoking a deadly insurrection at the US Capitol. It was unprecedented and the US is still dealing with the consequences.

On his way out the door, Trump was impeached for a second time for inciting the riot. A week later, President Joe Biden was inaugurated, and some scholars of democracy were hopeful that Trump's departure would open the door for the GOP to hit the reset button. But those feelings of optimism didn't last long as Republicans continued to show unwavering loyalty to Trump and his "big lie," and as GOP-led legislatures nationwide pushed for laws to restrict voting in extraordinary ways. :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

Again, that’s completely false allegations and untrue.

The actions which go against the US Constitution and Liberal Values today seem to be from the left - the Democrats and their like globally, like the Labor Party under Corbin.

That wasn’t always the case. In the 60s, 70s, 80s or in the past, they were liberal and true to their ethos about worker rights and fair pay. That’s when they had good politicians. That isn’t the case today.

The liberals seem to be the GOP and their like. Plus the more likely to be economy focused and liberal values. So liberal in fact that they apply this to guns in America’s case. And the more likely to focus on family values and law and order.

So we have had a shift. One that is very difficult to see by the average punter.

You see, the left is now full of plastic pretend liberals. Either that, or you are all confused what liberal values are.

I posted videos of a real liberal. A real left and a real liberal. A British comedian, whom I like, very much. Because he’s honest. And a real activist too. A real liberal activist.

Let me explain to you what liberalism means. It means having a plethora of opinions and viewpoints. Critical for democracy and for the people to maintain custodians of power.

That means, where we see persecution, even against political movements we disagree with or dislike, we support their political rights, not strive to deprive them of their political rights.

It means not ridiculing people or compromising their ability of free speech.

It applies to everyone, including ELAM.

Because when they go after ELAM today, they will come after Labor next. That’s because the corporates and big tech have no interest in letting the people be custodians of power. They want to control people and they do that well and make billions in the process.

Power today has become so perverse even controlling our justice system. That’s when we end up with kangaroo courts putting people under false allegations with unsubstantiated testimonies and no proof. Yes it has happened, and it took a Federal Court to overturn everything after the poor sod was in jail for 12 months.

So much for Democrats and the big tech companies being together. When European countries tried to put tax on the big tech companies Trump threatened them with sanctions. Here is their so called friend Biden agreeing to put 15% tax on the big tech in the G7 meeting down at the farm like.


niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

How can the big tech not be taxed. they are companies so fall under US Tax law. hence they pay comopany tax rate.

The big thing other countries are doing, in particular Australia, is making these big companies pay tax in Australia. As they trade in Australia, they are made to form another company in Australia, and declare their profits on money earned in Australia. The notion is, a dollar earned in Australia is a dollar that requires payment of tax to Australia.

Google, and some other criminal organisations, tried to embargo Australia at some point thinking Australia would cave in. As if we care if we can't use their corrupt search engine.

They caved in the end.

The other area we cracked down on them is to force Google, Facebook and others to pay royalties whenever they transmit any material from Australian Publishers. Murdoch big winner here.

We never got any threats from Trump. I'm pretty sure Trump loves it. We got plenty from Google and Facebook. At one point our facebook accounts were pretty much useless but when Suckerburger, saw Australian Facebook activity plummet and even mass deregistrations, he backtracked like a little puppy.

just google how corporations avoid tax. it really is not thathard. if you show loss in the USA becasue you shifted all your profits to anoff-shore island, how the hell are you going to pay tax on a loss in the USA.

How the hell do you think Amazon avoided paying tax last year. You really are a stupid indidual.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/may/04/amazon-sales-income-europe-corporation-tax-luxembourg

Can you imagine turning over 44 billion in 2020 and not a penyy tax paid. That is some creative accouning.

Of course the recent deal the G7 have worked out is equally empty. They wil only charge 15% of on profits more than 10%. When did these bastards ever declare 10% profit?

Yes, all that because that is the system Obama, and many before him had.

Trump was addressing this, and companies were shifting back to the US and of course pay tax in the US.

But now, with Biden, the rorts will continue.

I know how you can shift profits. It isn''t exactly illegal either. That is why you spend thousands in a good structure. To shift profits around. Hive them off into the most tax effective ways.

Only stupid people or businesses don’t minimize tax.

One of the reasons for lowering the corporate tax rate is to be competitive internationally.
