Our country, and the values it has always represented to the rest of the world, is being systematically destroyed from within. The current administration is the most corrupt in our nation’s history, and is led by an self-acknowledged sexual predator who is far friendlier with Vladimir Putin than our own military and intelligence services.
We stand by silently at our own peril. We are watching as our nation is being ripped apart without acting. The time to speak out is now.
After watching the entire speech of France’s President to Congress I once again realized what a true world leader sounds like. Such a leader points the way to a better and brighter future for the entire world, sharing a vision of hope and promise.
One day I pray we will again have such leaders in our country.
Donald Trump’s actions, and the attitudes behind them, are not normal for a leader of the free world. We all know that.
To remain silent in the face of such blatant lying, constant bullying, and morally disgusting racism is the same class of cowardice that allowed Adolf Hitler to come into power. The issue is not about party politics. It is far larger and far more consequential.
The issue is about basic human decency. The issue is about moral integrity. Are we going to allow such radical hate to continue destroying what our nation has always represented, or are we going to stand up and speak out in resistance to the clear destruction of our values?
As Mr. Rather states, history will judge us. The test is not difficult, but it requires us to act now. I have already answered. I will not be silent and I will not be complicit. I will resist. What about you?
Sound familiar? Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it…what about those who intentionally erase it?
Which is bigger, the size of Trump’s lies or the length of his ties?
In the seven decades I have been around, there’s been no man that has created so much mayhem so rapidly, and has lied so consistently. The United States is under attack from its own president. The #BLOTUS is toxic, pure and simple.
The Affordable Care Act definitely needs work. But, it isn’t collapsing so much as being intentionally destroyed by a tiny little man with a tiny little head and even smaller, hate-filled heart.
