From 2003.

Let's see how we're doing. We're 14/14 by my count.

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Stand, you ungrateful quarterback!
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Stand, you ungrateful quarterback!

5. Rampant Sexism -- Grab em by the
6. Controlled Mass Media -- Fake News...everywhere!
7. Obsession with National Security -- Build the wall!
8. Religion and Government are Intertwined -- The Founding Fathers Founded a Christian Nation, after all
9. Corporate Power is Protected -- Regulation? Pshaw!
10. Labor Power is Suppressed -- (Reagan checked that box thirty years ago)
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts -- Libby-libs run the universities! Global Warming Hoax!

I think Trump was crushed to learn that "President" is not synonymous with "Dictator". In fact, I'm not a bit sure that he has accepted this.

I'm convinced he thought the President sat around barking orders and people had to do what he told them. It's probably why he thought Obama didn't know how to do his job.
