Dictators dont buy votes. They stack their government with cronies and atart to defy the checks and balances the founding fathers put into place. They lie and take advantage of people’s misfortunes to galvanize them against fake enemies.
I get it, its going to be hard for you to admit and accept why you still back a narcissistic and lying charlatan. You abandon all critical thinking, defend your “team”, attack and label all others. I truly feel sorry for you.
