Bingo. The Spanish civil war started because communists tried to overthrow the state and force their genocidal religion on them. Seems like we are in the early stages of it. Better dead than red, boys.

You live in a banana Republic because you can't even provide fresh water for all your citizens.

In Canada, the leading Conservative leadership candidate has proposed a bill to limit the vocabulary used in Parliament. Dystopian ideas aren't the sole purview of the left.

Source: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/08/three_signs_were_in_a_banana_republic.html Satirist Sol Luckman defines “banana republic” in his irreverent glossary, The Angel’s Dictionary, as a “lawless society where the monkeys rule.” Looking around the United States today, it’s hard to say we don’t fit his meaning. Nearly 80% of Americans believe we live under a two-tiered system of justice. Likewise, in Gallup’s recent survey of Americans’ confidence in U.S. institutions, it notes, “This year’s poll marks new lows in confidence for all three branches of the federal government — the Supreme Court (25%), the presidency (23%) and Congress.” Of sixteen institutions tested, confidence in the U.S. Congress sits at the very bottom with a scant 7%! Even though there is now “record-low confidence across all institutions,” confidence in the Office of the Presidency suffered the largest year-over-year drop in 2022 — cratering 15%!

You don't really know what a Banana Republic is, do you? The first sign you live in a Banana Republic is usually that the US says your government is Socialist and stages a coup.
