Is the United States Reaching Banana Republic Status?

At some point, people in the United States will have to realize that their country is descending into Banana Republic-style despotism.

From the imprisonment of January 6 protestors to the recent indictment of former President Donald Trump, all signs point to the United States descending into a tyrannical state that would only be found in the Third World.

To quote Thomas Jefferson, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

Sadly, most of us have not been vigilant and thought we could just coast along thinking that our rights will be safe just because America is “exceptional.”

While the US is a special nation due to its respect for individual liberties, free markets, and limited government, it is still a polity filled with humans. At the end of the day, humans are flawed creatures who can be corrupted and fall for the pettiest of vices.

When societies don’t check the most predatory of individuals who enter politics, all types of trouble ensue.

No matter how strong a political system is, if people fall asleep at the wheel by allowing the most corrupt to rise to the top, these systems will be well on the path to decay.

The US might just be the latest historical chapter of this predictable cycle of civilizational decline.

However, these types of decline aren’t an inevitability. In fact, when people hit their history books hard enough and start taking action, they can halt this process.

The contrarian lawyer Robert Barnes is one of those individuals who has clearly read his history and understands what’s at stake in contemporary American politics. He’s not afraid to stir the pot and attack sacred cows in American politics.

For that reason, we at the Rebel Capitalist community view Robert as a friend of freedom. He’s one of the few people who tirelessly fights for liberty and exposes the political establishment’s corruption.

He recently sat down with our very own George Gammon to discuss the present insanity of American politics.
