Empires are more common in history than democracies.
Easy answer why: because they are controlled by combinations of insiders, aka the deep state, which desires nothing more than to see the source of power, status, and wealth remains in business. As long as the system works, more and more money and power, shifts from the private economy to the Deep State.
Is it any wonder why the deep state is fighting President Donald Trump?
The deep state recognizes no national allegiances, no borders, and no loyalties. All ideas that President Trump is opposite of. President Trump is for America, not the New World Order Barack Obama wished would happen as he left office. The people of America saw the evil ways of the deep state and defeated it for the love of America. Stand up tall for the United States and President Trump!
