Is the USA Now a Banana Republic?

“Dem Rep. Cicilline: Imprison White House Officials That Don’t Comply with Congressional Subpoenas”, says a Breitbart headline.

Wait a minute.

The President and Congress are equally powerful branches of government. If Congress can round up the President’s staff and imprison them, then the President can do the same to Congress.


It’s beginning to look a lot like a banana republic.

To paraphrase Ben Franklin, they gave us a republic to keep; on our present course, we will be the generation to lose it.
