Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?

Seems to me we are losing either way. If we do not revolt against this ruinous regime we lose our republic and our democracy and it we do revolt, we also lose our republic and our democracy. So, is there any way out of this conundrum? We wait patiently? We do nothing because if we did anything we might end up in prison? We hope the system can still cure itself?

Both Louis and Schmeling became political figures when the Nazis came to power in Germany. Hitler tried to placate Schmeling as proof of the superiority of the Arian race, while Joe Louis was seen, by black and white Americans alike at the time, as the litmus test that a democracy was better than fascism.

On June 19, 1936, Joe Louis and Max Schmeling faced off against each other in New York’s Madison Square Garden. The fight had to be postponed for a day due to bad weather and the New York Times wrote: “Schmeling’s execution was delayed.”
