We often hear lately that the "deep state" is an intrusion on our security and sanctity as free and independent people. It is my opinion that if it were not for the deep state, we, i.e., you and me, would not be free and independent people today.
This country lives on its traditions, our shared values, established institutions and our ways of life, all part of the deep state. That does not mean that draining the swamp is not possible. Part of the deep state can be corruption and certain fossils that have accumulated over time.
Rid the deep state of that. If the deep state is destroyed by those who advocate its destruction, you and I will no longer be free and independent. Hitler destroyed the deep state. Stalin destroyed the deep state and millions of people.
Be careful what you wish for, the deep state is not our enemy. Those who wish its destruction are the enemy.
