Turning the US into Russia

The problems facing the United States are serious and perhaps under estimated. Our president is choosing to extend friendship to governments that do not share our values and in many cases are actively attacking us or threatening to attack us. These are not free nations but totalitarian regimes such as Duarte in the Philippians, Kim in North Korea and Putin in Russia. But I caution that the problem facing the United States is not that Mr. Trump wants to be “friends” with Vladimir Putin: the threat we face is that Donald Trump wants to BE Vladimir Putin. He wants to run this country as Putin runs Russia. He wants to be the sole authority with no advice or restraint by anyone: no restraint by his advisers or by congress. No restriction by the courts or the law. No criticism by the media or even the citizens who will vote. I’m afraid we have a president who wants to turn our country into Russia.
