I find it difficult to understand how our current president can so brazenly disregard the law. His actions continue to mock our entire justice system as he ignores any law with which he doesn’t agree. It must be nice to act like a dictator, and get away with it.
And the 50% in congress who are not “officially” millionaires are within spitting distance. Those in power have little in common with the majority of the citizens in the United States. This is one reason the gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow at such an alarming rate. Democracy cannot long survive with such a huge discrepancy of incomes between the haves and the have-nots.
We must not forgive that we have rights. Some of these rights are already under attack by the #BLOTUS administration. We all need to speak up to defend the basic rights granted to the American people by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The right of a free press is already being targeted. And the right to assemble is also receiving pressure. This is a dangerous and slippery slope, and the first steps of any totalitarian regime. We all must stand up for every one of these rights.
As the events of the past couple of weeks have unfolded, many of us have been almost paralyzed in the face of such a brazen and blatant attack on the true values of our nation. Now is the time we need to again hear these powerful words of warning from President Abraham Lincoln.
We have a responsibly to protect the Constitution. We must speak out and step up when we see Congress, the Courts, or the President perverting this document. And at this moment the Constitution, and the values it holds forth, are both being attacked and perverted by #BLOTUS and those he has appointed.
We need to protect the Constitution. The responsibility is ours.
